How It Works

A subscription to LOLA is perfect for any female of menstruating age, from preparing for their first period to their last. LOLA also offers sexual wellness products for women who want to feel protected while enjoying their sex life.

Each box is fully customizable. Clients can order a "best selling" box, which comes with a various assortment of products. Or they can decide which products, and the quantity, they want to include each month.

The first thing you'll do is pick your items. Once you've completed this step, you'll proceed to checkout. You'll review your order and view your final cost. If everything is correct, click "Proceed to Checkout."

Fill in the information. Next, you'll pick between the standard 7-day shipping, which is free, or expedited shipping which comes in 3 days and costs $10. And finally, you'll select whether you want your box to be delivered every 4 or 8 weeks.

No worries if you need your products early. Just log into your account and select "Process Now." Your regular delivery date will not be affected. You can also place a hold on your subscription or cancel it for free. Plus, you can add one time purchases to your cart. Not all products are available for a one-time purchase.

Company History

Jordana Kier and her partner Alex Friedman are the founders of LOLA. The two were introduced in 2014 through mutual friends while Jordana was finishing graduate school at Columbia Business School. Alex was already working with a tech company after attending Dartmouth and receiving her MBA from Wharton.

Jordana had been dreaming up the idea of LOLA. Over drinks one night, she popped Alex with the question of "What's in your tampon?" This simple question paved the way for Jordana and Alex to come up with a feminine product that had simple, safe ingredients that all women could use. It took them a few years to get everything together.

Before they launched their company, they hosted focus groups around the country. The ladies wanted to see if there would be any interest in their product. The results showed that most women are not aware of the chemicals they are placing in their bodies, but most would be open to an organic tampon.

Jordana and Alex had their market. Now, they had to develop an organic feminine product that would be healthy and comfortable. A few years later, LOLA now brings in over $3 million a year in revenue and is still being run by Jordana, who is the current acting CEO. Check out this video to hear the story of how LOLA all started.
