Well, most are not made of cotton. Many well-known, nationally-advertised brands of tampons, pads and sanitary panty liners are made of mostly synthetics. Like rayon. Feminine sanitary pads from many of the best known brands also contain something called SAPs, which stands for Super Absorbent Powders. While doing their job to absorb better, SAPs are made from polymers that are derived from crude oil. Think how close those SAPs will be to you.
Tampons and pads often contain wood pulp. It’s not what you expect. But that’s what you’re probably using. Wouldn’t you prefer cotton?
Bleached? Did you say they're bleached?
Yes. Many well-known brands are made with material that is bleached with chlorine. Do you want that touching you? Chlorine bleaching leaves a by-product: dioxin. So women may be exposed to small but detectable levels of this known toxin whenever they use pads and tampons that are chlorine beached.
Organyc is 100% Organic Cotton
Unlike most feminine care brands, Organ(y)c contains no synthetics, no SAPs and no wood pulp. For good hygiene, Organyc bleach only in hydrogen peroxide, a naturally occurring disinfectant. Organ(y)c is made with organic cotton.
Organic Cotton: kind to people & other living things
Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials with the purpose of reducing the impact on the environment. And preserving the natural equilibrium between the many components of the ecosystem. Organic agriculture endeavors to work in harmony with nature, producing healthy plants for healthy people. For example, organic farming uses bio-rational products and bio-control agents for pest management.
Organic certification is the public’s assurance that products have been grown and handled according to strict, safe procedures.
