The modern woman may be knowledgeable, but deciphering labels and navigating her way through the chemical soup that is the consumer-products industry can be challenging. Even if she does, chances are that the complicated labelling of period products will leave her exasperated.

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.

Our vaginas are like sponges, lined with permeable mucous membranes that protect our bodies from bacteria but that can easily absorb chemicals. Choosing organic tampons made of cotton grown without pesticides, is the best way to protect your vagina.

Good design, integrity and quality shouldn’t cost the earth. We practise conscious innovation to create exceptional biodegradable organic sanitary pads and tampons, crafted from the highest quality ingredients like organic cotton.

Our Essentials Collection is kind to our bodies and to our planet.
