As it is, the industry is rife with uncertainty. Pesticides, chlorine and fragrances are just a few of the potentially harmful ingredients finding their way into our cabinets and bloodstreams. In fact, in European countries, there are stricter regulations for the labelling of pet food than there are for menstrual products. Given that these are products are used for women’s most intimate areas, this lack of information is unquestionably wrong.
“There’s such minimal research into periods generally, let alone period products and their effects on our bodies. You only have to look at the long list of ingredients in mainstream tampons to know that they cannot be good news for our vaginas,” says Fran.
What you put into your body matters. The vagina has a very delicate pH balance and is also highly absorbent. Our products are made using 100% certified organic cotton, meaning they’re naturally absorbent, complying with industry standards without the use of perfumes and artificial absorbents.
Grace & Green was founded to challenge the questionable status quo of the feminine hygiene industry. Exceptional hygiene calls for high-quality ingredients that protect your health, without causing major pollution and environmental damage. This should, we feel, go without saying.
