WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
Our regular organic tampons are made with a rolled wadding of long-fibre organic cotton – designed to gently absorb menstrual flow and expand widthways.
We only make organic tampons because most are made from a mix of rayon and non-organic cotton, and are commonly chlorine-bleached. Tampons often have a plastic wrapper, contain perfumes and even dyes. Rayon 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.
No-one should be exposed to pesticide residues, phthalates, azo-dyes and dioxins, especially in such a sensitive and absorptive part of the body. Know exactly what you put in your body.
Marine life is at serious risk from plastic pollution.
Plastic wet wipes are frequently flushed as well as tampons and even pads! In fact, period products are the fifth most common item found washed up on Europe’s beaches, with 3.9 million flushed down the loo every single day in the UK alone.
Incorrectly flushed or thrown away items are found polluting the coastlines across the world.
There’s no need to make your period any more uncomfortable than it can be.
Pads and panty liners made with plastic are not as breathable. Wearing them all day (let alone all week!) can create a sweaty and uncomfortable environment for your skin.
Plastic based products are so durable that they’re often worn for far too long. This can promote unbalanced bacterial growth and lead to dermatitis style symptoms.
Most wet wipes and period products will live longer than us!
That’s right – the plastic in period products and wipes will remain in the environment unchanged for hundreds of years.
The plastic production process releases frightening amounts of toxic pollution, contributing to global warming. Plastic is rarely recycled as it should be and is often incinerated – creating even more toxic pollutants.

Some methods of bleaching create toxic organic pollutants which remain in trace amounts in pads and tampons. Our products are totally chlorine free, keeping toxins out of your vagina.
