Winged Wellness Co-Founder Jessica Mulligan joins The Natural List for this frank (and fun) conversation about women’s health products.
June 6, 2023
The conversation around women’s health has shifted, not only to a place where stigmas are finally dissolving around topics such as menstruation, menopause, hormones and reproductive health, but also where women can talk frankly about their sexual health, libido and other formerly “off-limits” physiological functions that affect over half of the U.S. population.
Natural products brands are rising to meet this demand and fill this massive gap in the marketplace for women’s health solutions. One such brand is Winged Wellness. Its women-centric supplement and personal care products offer women clinically studied formulations for a variety of women’s health needs, messaging that celebrates women and gorgeous, stigma-free branding. Today on The Natural List, hosts Jessica Rubino and Adrienne Smith bare all with this brand’s delightful co-founder and CEO, Jessica Mulligan.
