In partnership with the biotech company Amyris, Stripes created a line of holistic, science-backed solutions that promote overall wellness for people experiencing menopause. Our active ingredients are sustainably sourced, and created to be good to both you and our planet. 


Menopause affects each of us differently, which is why we designed Stripes to be inclusive of all people who experience it. When we make space for each of our unique journeys and needs, we create a collective wisdom that strengthens, empowers, and unites us all.


Stripes is not an anti-aging brand. Rather, we believe in aging well, with ease, and with pride. We promote solutions that help people navigate and mitigate the natural transitions that occur before, during, and after menopause. Growing older is a privilege that we both nurture and celebrate.
