Natural Feminine Ultra Pads Long w/ Wings by Natracare
Women today are conscious of the need to restrict their contact with synthetic materials and unnecessary chemicals and additives. They are becoming more aware that most of the widely available sanitary pads sold today, contain a blend of chlorine-bleached pulp, polypropylene, polyacrylates and plastic.
For each monthly cycle, it makes sense to choose a pad that is made from natural materials. Many gynaecologists have advised women with sensitive skin to use natracare pads to reduce their contact with chlorine bleached materials, and also products containing synthetics, latex and super absorbents made from petrochemicals. Every year, billions of plastic laden pads are disposed of, and generally they end up in landfill sites to sit unaltered for hundreds of years. Every year, in Britain alone, we would have to dig a hole three hundred feet deep and three hundred feet wide to bury the sanitary pads that are thrown away.
Natracare chemical free pads are high quality products made from only pure and natural materials that are made from plant cellulose. They are not chlorine bleached and are free of rayon, plastics and other similar synthetic materials that have a negative impact on our environment. They are comfortable and reliable and available in different absorbencies and styles. The regular pad is narrower towards the middle of the pad so that it fits the contours of the body more readily, whilst the Slender and Super pads are the same width all along the pad’s length for a more traditional fit. The Ultra with wings is a slim pad with the added protection of wings. They are individually wrapped so that they can be kept discretely in your bag.

These are perfect for protecting you during the heaviset flow. I like the extra long pad and wings because they hold in place really well. Plus the pad is super thin so it doesn't feel like you are wearing a diaper like some pads. It really absorbs well and I haven't had any overflow or leaks with these. I highly reccomend these if you want something earth friendly but convenient during your period. They do not contain any chemicals, dyes, scents, or plastic and are 100% biodegradable!
I am extremely pleased with this product, and buy it repeatedly. I have used other "conventional" brands, and these DO compare in my opinion. Because they are long, they offer more protection than what I was used to that I used for years before this, and the "super" absorbency and ultra-thin style also add to the convenience. I have used them both for overnight and for daytime when the flow is heavy and I want extra protection from leaks. The long style is very helpful for the latter. It keeps me very confident that I won't have any embarrassing accidents. I'm really grateful for this brand. They are affordable and earth-friendly and health-friendly and meet all my needs. I buy them every month or so as needed when I run out. :) I have been buying this product and/or brand for several years now.
I order these pads for the sole reason that they work well " together" with the super maxi pad (by Natracare) as they are very long and provide great protection, especially at night. I have a heavy flow and am sorry to see that there are no pads that are super absorbent with wings, so I have to use 2 pads (placing the super maxi over the ultra long pad) for coverage that meets my needs. Expensive, but it works until I can find something better.
Regular pads make my daughter break out in a horrible rash but these pads are pure and just as they are described! Wonderful!
I love these natural pads. They are very absorbent, comfortable and natural & organic!! It's fantastic! This length and absorbency are the perfect choice for me for nighttime, but good for the day too.
LOVE the fact that these pads are long enough for the nighttime when I am concerned about added protection... Comfortable and safe too!
I ordered feminine protection. However, it was mis-labeled by Lucky as "nutritional supplements"!!! This resulted in an unexpected additional 15% customs/duty fee upon delivery.
Great product! Not as absorbent as chemically laden stuff, but the fact it's safe outweighs that! Also, after using these for several months, I have noticed less bleeding and cramping with my periods. I have read similar stories which was what prompted me to try these in the first place!
Pretty good, but a little insubstantial for heavier flows.
Not very absorbent. Do not stay in place well.
Like the green. Design can be improved.
