Many women don’t think about what their hygiene products are made from. In fact, most tampons are made from a mix of rayon, polyester and non-organic cotton. This blend makes for one toxic cocktail.
Rayon can dry out the protective mucous of the vagina. Most bright white tampons are chlorine-bleached and likely contain harmful, carcinogenic dioxin residue in their fibres which can then enter the vaginal canal. These fibres can also break off and harbour bacteria which can lead to Toxic Shock Syndrome.
