Natracare Organic Cotton Tampons - Super Plus (non applicator) are a natural, non-toxic choice for those times when your menstrual flow is quite heavy.
Developed as a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine bleaching, Natracare tampons are made from pesticide-free organic cotton and do not contain rayon and other synthetics, known for causing irritation. In fact, Natracare created the world's first certified organic tampon.
Natracare Organic Cotton Tampons - Super Plus (non applicator) for natural organic cotton protection during heavy menstrual flow
Dioxin, a toxic carcinogen, is a by-product of all chlorine bleaching methods and also found throughout the environment in varying levels as a by-product of pesticide spraying and pollution from incinerators. Studies show dioxin collects in the fatty tissues of animals, including humans and should, therefore, be a real concern for women. Evidence is mounting that even low levels of dioxins may be linked to cancer, endometriosis, low sperm counts and immune system suppression. The presence of dioxins in traditional tampons is of concern for women when you consider how many tampons they may use in a lifetime.
Why should you use Natracare Organic Cotton Tampons?
- Contain only 100% organic cotton
- No residue from chemical pesticides and fertilisers like those used on traditional cotton
- Totally chlorine free
- No synthetic materials, such as rayon, plastics or dyes (Rayon and rayon-cotton blends are widely used in the manufacture of tampons. Rayon is commonly chlorine-bleached and is a highly absorbent fibre which rapidly absorbs menstrual blood but, at the same time, can also dry out the natural protective mucous lining of the vagina.)
- Biodegradable & compostable
- Expands widthways as the cotton gently absorbs the menstrual flow
In additional to the above, conventional tampons do not hold their shape when exposed to liquid for a length of time (see comparison image below). This is even more worrying when you consider the contents of the tampon.
How to use non applicator Natracare Organic Cotton Tampons
- Insert the tampon using your index finger - tuck it into the red flared end of the tampon - to enable the tampon to be pushed into place.
- After use, you can easily remove the tampon using the organic cotton withdrawal cord.
