Chemical-Free Personal Hygiene for Women
Many women seem to be moving away from commercial tampon and pad brands due to concerns regarding the environmental, health, and financial impact of using these products. In fact, many women are starting to realise the dangerous implications of using non-organic feminine hygiene products.
These days, many commercial pads and tampons are composed of irritating synthetic fibres such as rayon and plastic, opposed to natural cotton. Recent research has even found carcinogens and irritants such as styrene, chloromethane, chloroethane, chloroform, and acetone in popular feminine hygiene products.
Not to mention, according to the Women’s Environmental Network, the average women uses (and discards of) up to 11,000 pads and tampons in her life. That is an enormous amount of landfill. Since this research has come to light, menstrual cups have taken over the feminine hygiene market as a real answer to the environmental, financial, and health concerns that commercial pads and tampons pose.
However, what if you aren’t quite ready to try out menstrual cups or reusable cloth pads? What alternative do you have?
Well, the good news is, brands like Natracare exist!
