We are here because Menopause is hard (not hopeless) and we exist as a company to make the State of Menopause a little easier.

Hey there. My name is Stacy London. You may have seen me on TV shows like What Not To Wear, Today, Access Hollywood or Rachael Ray. What you haven't seen is where I've been personally during the last four years.

It would be so useful to know things before they happen like: flossing is good for you, having 3 cats is way more than 2, Santa does not exist, and algebra is entirely useless. However, life doesn’t usually give you a heads up before it happens. And while there are some things I’ve been ready for, nothing and NO ONE prepared me for Menopause.

Around the age of 47, my body started to ache. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t remember words like pencil or orange. I’d cry constantly. My skin (and nether regions) dried up like the Sahara. I was always itchy. I suddenly had cystic acne and gray chin hair. I was anxious and grumpy. My period stopped (which saved me a ton in tampons) but it came with the realization and grief that I could not (even if I wanted to) have children. My jaw line disappeared. My waistline disappeared. My hair and nails got brittle and weak. And then I started getting really hot. I looked like I’d taken a shower, fully clothed, talking to someone about something I’d forget mid-sentence!

Simply put, I felt like I was bat shit crazy. And maybe even worse than that, I had no idea what was happening to me. I felt utterly alone, helpless and totally ashamed.

Menopausal symptoms range from annoying to hard. Really hard. Worse than being hard, we’ve been taught to be ashamed of them. Whether this is an age transition (still—somehow—a “taboo” topic filled with negative stereotypes that make us feel old, unattractive, and “past our prime) or any of the other myriad reasons we have them: cancer, chemotherapy, endometriosis, gender transition, premature ovarian failure, radical hysterectomy. How can it be that we still have to normalize the discussion around this inevitable transition, that will happen to at least HALF the population?

This company is trying to do what I’ve tried to my entire career as a stylist: to help you from suffering silently, raise your confidence and self-esteem by alleviating external symptoms, and removing the shame that surrounds them. And that’s why, when I got the chance, I went from being one of a hundred peri-menopausal beta-testers for these products to running the company.

Here at State Of, we aren’t your mother’s menopause company because she didn’t HAVE one. I’ll be damned if we have to keep silent about this completely natural phase of life a minute longer.

As a medical condition, menopause remains understudied, leading many of us to doubt our (entirely real) feelings as “being crazy” and dismiss our symptoms. But symptoms are not trivial. We should never deny that what we are experiencing merits discussion and care. Not only does it merit both, it merits solutions and education.

Our products are rapid relief and innovative formulations to target the specific symptoms of menopause. We care about what you put in or on your body so all State Of products are vegan, cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified. All of our ingredients are ethically and sustainably sourced and free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, ethanolamines, formaldehyde, talc, mineral or petroleum oils, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and dyes. All of our packaging has been thoughtfully designed with all primary components being curbside recyclable. Just be sure to remove any pumps from your bottles and rinse before tossing in your bin, as pumps are made from mixed plastics and are not recyclable at this time. (I know, we’re working on it!)

So however you get here: by age, health, gender or any other reason, those crappy feelings stop now. Let the healing (and cooling) begin.

Whatever State you’re in, we want you to make the best decisions about your health. And we want you to rest, renew, hydrate, stay healthy, strong, and yes, cool. Because they are YOUR decisions to make, YOUR feelings to address, and YOUR actions to determine what works for you. One “flash” does not fit all.

While we haven’t tackled every symptom (yet), we are a company that wants to evolve with you and for you. So if you want to tell us what you love or don’t, what you want to see next or just vent, reach out and email me:
