WHY USE ORGANIC COTTON?
Although traditional tampons and pads are white, as if they were made of cotton, actually they usually contain a mixture of wood pulp and synthetics such as rayon and viscose. Woman's vagina is one of the body mucous membranes that faster absorbs chemicals; throughout your life you can get to use over 12,000 tampons and protective pads, so it is very important to analyse the composition of tampons, sanitary pads and panty liners you use. 100% organic cotton is widely the most recommended option for this body part. Its use helps prevent the risk of irritation and allergies related to the use of chemicals, and the absence of toxic residues in contact with skin helps to keep it healthy and clean.
Features of 100% organic cotton
- Hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested: attenuates and helps prevent risks of irritation, itching, infections and allergies.
- Compatible with the physiological pH: it does not alter the natural acidity of the vaginal mucosa.
- Ensures optimum damp level: allows the right moisture exchange with the outside, reducing dehydration.
- Highly absorbent: it supports more than 20 times its weight in liquid.
- Soft: nice and smooth touch.
- Breathable: retains discharge and allows air to pass through its fibres.
