What You Should Know

My pads and tampons are made of what?

Well, most are not made of cotton. Many well-known, nationally-advertised brands of tampons, pads and panty liners are made of mostly synthetics. Like rayon. Feminine 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.

 

Organ(y)c is 100% organic cotton

Unlike most feminine care brands, Organ(y)c contains no synthetics, no SAPs and no wood pulp. For good hygiene, we bleach only in hydrogen peroxide, a naturally occurring disinfectant. Organ(y)c is made with organic cotton.
