Tampons Organic All Cotton Tampons Super Plus by Natracare
Natracare tampons were developed as a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine bleaching, the extensive use of pesticide spraying on conventionally grown cotton, and the use of rayon and other synthetics in tampons.
Many women are unaware that rayon and rayon-cotton blends are widely used in the manufacture of tampons. Rayon is commonly chlorine-bleached, and is a highly absorbent fibre. Dioxin, a toxic carcinogen, is a by-product of all chlorine bleaching methods and is also found throughout the environment in varying levels as a by-product of pesticide spraying and pollution from incinerators. Dioxin has been found to collect in the fatty tissues of animals, including humans and should, therefore, be a real concern for women. Published scientific reports have shown that evidence is growing that even low levels of dioxins may be linked to cancer, endometriosis, low sperm counts and immune system suppression. Considering a woman may use as many as 11,000 tampons in her lifetime, she may be subjecting herself to additional dioxin exposure.
Natracare tampons are made from only certified organic 100% cotton and are the only fully certified organic cotton tampons available in the world today. They are non-chlorine bleached and women can be reassured that they do not contain synthetic materials, such as rayon, or chemical additives such as binders or surfactants. Certified organic cotton removes the risk of direct exposure to residues from chemical pesticides and fertilisers used on traditional cotton.

Excellent product! Never causes irritation, excellent absorbtion for overnite and heavy flow. Stays in place while jogging, running, swimming, etc. Highly recommended by a 5 year long user!
Excellent product! Wonderfully compact and easy to carry in your pocket or small purse. It's all natural -- how can you go wrong? Never causes irritation, excellent absorbtion for overnite and heavy flow. Stays in place while jogging, running, swimming, etc. Highly recommended by a 5 year long user!
Love these! I alternate between these and my DivaCup, using these on heavier days when my cup just doesn't do the job. Easy to insert, even without the applicator. Usually very comfortable, just so long as they're inserted far enough. Perfect to keep in your pocket; much more discrete. No complaints!
These are simply the best tampons I've ever used. They are compact and work really well.
My daughters love them---They are natural and work well.
Switched from OBs as I like the fact that these are organic. They work well, just wishing they offered them in a higher absorbency (which OB discontinued about 6 months ago.)
The best organic that I have ever tried!
I think it was 3 decades ago when "toxic shock syndrome" alerted some of us to switch to unbleached(!) tampons, and I've been using them ever since. First there was only the Seventh Generation product and then this one -- and still they are the only two organic non-toxic products available! How many of your women friends today even know the difference? Spread the word, these are great!
Like the green. Design can be improved.
