Maxim Hygiene's tampons are chlorine and viscose free to reduce the risk of irritation and allergy.
Maxim's Philosophy The founders of Maxim built the company and developed Maxim products with three main elements in mind – Body, Earth, and Health. They asked themselves, “How can we take these three very basic and essential components of life to their maximum level of efficiency and sustainability?” This question has become Maxim Hygiene's personal mantra in everything they do. Each element alone is strong, but by combining them together in to one product Maxim is meeting their maximum potential.
Body. Each person’s body is unique in its composition and form, but every body wants and needs to feel good. Maxim's designs and product materials play a significant role in providing comfort and convenience for life’s every day personal care needs.
Earth. The Earth is our source of life and we’ve only got one. If we don’t take care of it we might as well start saying goodbye to it. Maxim likes to try to breathe life in to every aspect of their products; from their Eco-Friendly packaging, to the use of Biodegradable, Synthetic Free, Wood Fluff Pulp Free and Chlorine/Dioxin Free materials, Maxim is always looking for ways to help keep the environment safe.
Health. Health is the most influential element out of all three body, earth and health standards. Body and earth alone are strong components, however having a healthy body and earth is the strongest component in nurturing quality of life.
Why Maxim? Ever think about the content of your most intimate products?...Maxim did. Feeling itchy or uncomfortable down there?...Maxim can help. Maxim is a softer, safer and natural alternative to standard conventional feminine hygiene products. Maxim products replace harsh chemical ingredients found in your every day products with the beneficial qualities of organic and natural cotton. In doing so, Maxim products address and resolve major health and environmental concerns associated with the use and production of conventional feminine hygiene and cotton products.
The poeple at Maxim are a little particular when it comes to hygiene. So, whether it’s that time of the month or any other time of the month, Maxim thinks it’s very important that women receive information about what’s going in to their bodies, especially the most intimate parts of their bodies. Therefore, Maxim has provided some helpful points below, about Maxim’s unique qualities, to help guide your decision making and thoughts on the importance of keeping your most intimate products organic and natural.
Maxim Product Benefits & Features:
Made with 100% Certified Organic and Natural Cotton - A more naturally breathable fiber that’s better for your Body, Earth and Health.
Chlorine/Dioxin Free - Keeping carcinogens away from your most intimate body parts.
Synthetic Free - For a Softer, Non-Irritable, and Plastic-less feel.

Eco-Friendly & User-Friendly Too! - Maintaining product performance while keeping the environment safe.
Made With 100% Certified Organic & Natural Cotton.
Other Brands: What looks like Cotton in other Feminine Hygiene and Cosmetic Puff Products, is not really 100% Cotton. It is usually a blend of Wood Fluff Pulp and Synthetics, like Rayon/Viscose. These cotton alternatives are not as natural, soft on the body, or environmentally friendly as cotton itself.
Maxim Brand: Maxim's products are made with 100% Certified Organic and Natural Cotton. Maxim is the only 100% Cotton-Based hygiene line on the market. Cotton’s natural breathable quality helps prevent the risk of Irritation and makes it Softer on the Body and Better for the Earth. Maxim also uses Organic Cotton, the purest form of cotton. Organic cotton is grown without the use of Pesticides, Fungicides, Herbicides, Sewage Sludge, Irradiation or Genetic Engineering. Instead, Organic Farmers use natural alternative methods and tools that help enhance soil quality and biodiversity and protect the air and water on which we depend. Who wouldn’t prefer their most intimate products to be made from only all organic and natural methods?…all while protecting the air and water we depend on!
Other Brands: Use Chlorine to bleach the raw materials contained in standard feminine hygiene products. The purpose of bleaching is to disinfect and whiten the color of these materials. Dioxin is a chemical substance or resulting residue of the Chlorine bleaching process. It can stay within the fluff fibers of the product materials that come in contact with your body, leading to prolonged exposure to this toxic carcinogen (cancer-causing substance).
Maxim Brand: Products are bleached through a safer process which uses Hydrogen-Peroxide, a natural and safe alternative to Chlorine.
Other Brands: Use Synthetics, man made chemically composed versions of natural materials, like cotton. When synthetics come in contact with the body they can create unfavorable conditions leading to allergy, irritation, discomfort, and even that slight discomfort you may have experienced recently with your conventional products.
Maxim Brand: Products are made with 100% Pure Organic and Natural Cotton, leaving no trace of synthetics touching the body. Unlike synthetics, only the natural breathable qualities of 100% cotton can reduce the risk of irritation and make a softer feeling product. Also, cotton’s entire product life cycle, being renewable and biodegradable, makes it one of the most environmentally-oriented fibers. Compare that to most synthetic, or chemical fibers, which are petroleum based, either made from nonrenewable resources, or less renewable, like tree-based wood fluff pulp.
Wood Fluff Pulp Free.
Other Brands: Use Wood Fluff Pulp for the absorbent core material in sanitary pads. Wood Fluff Pulp is a tree byproduct. Natural forests are being abused and destroyed in the process of obtaining Wood Fluff Pulp.
Maxim Brand: Maxim sanitary pads’ absorbent cores are made of 100% Natural Cotton instead of Wood Fluff Pulp because Cotton is more waste efficient, easily cultivated and its production has less of an overall negative impact on the natural environment. Cotton is a more renewable crop that can be harvested once a year, whereas trees take 6 – 12 years to grow. Also, once the trees are harvested and cut down, they go through a very harsh chemical treatment in order to break them down in to the cotton-like and looking absorbent core you’re used to seeing in other pads. Do not be fooled - even though it looks like cotton, it might not actually be cotton.
Other Brands: Contain Synthetics and other Irritants, such as Fragrances, which are not natural and can cause irritation and discomfort. The plastics, viscose, wood fluff pulp, perfume, super-absorbents and other petro-chemical fillers found in standard feminine hygiene products creates what’s called a “heat-dampness micro-climate” in the body, which is an ideal environment for encouraging the growth of bacteria, fungi and other irritation-causing subjects.
Maxim Brand: Maxim uses natural materials, like cotton and eliminates irritable materials, like Synthetics and Fragrances, to make sure all Maxim products are Hypoallergenic and 100% Irritation Free. Some women who experience vaginal irritations on a regular basis, especially around the time of their menstrual cycle, might not be aware that the source of irritation can be coming from the use of conventional products that are made with irritating materials. Women who suffer from vulva-vaginal irritations when using conventional feminine hygiene products, find relief in Maxim products after using them for only a short period of time. Unique to Maxim Only.
Eco-Friendly & User-Friendly Too!
Other Brands: May be meeting your personal needs, but what about the needs of the environment? Plastic and Synthetics found in conventional products are a substantial source of waste clogging up our landfills, especially with the new popularity of plastic applicator tampons. Billions of tampons, applicators and pads end up in landfills every year, taking years to decompose.
Maxim Brand: Products provide the same leak-resistant comfort of other leading tampons and pads, but only Maxim uses the naturally safe characteristics described above. In addition, Maxim tampons are biodegradable, designed to compost quickly and safely - that means less waste! Also, Maxim feminine hygiene products are packed in Recycled or Recyclable Cardboard Packaging, as opposed to plastic poly bags. Just because they're eco-friendly doesn't mean they can't be user-friendly to meet your personal hygiene needs!

Always select the lowest tampon absorbency to meet your needs.
Remember to remove or change your tampon every 4 to 6 hours.
Read and save the enclosed information packet before using.
Tampon Insertion Instructions:
Wash your hands.
Choose a comfortable position. You can either sit on the toilet with your knees apart or stand with one foot on the toilet, or sit on your heals with your knees apart. It is very important to relax vaginal muscles for comfortable insertion.
Remove protective wrap. Hold tampon tube firmly in your hand and pull on the withdrawal cord to make sure it is securely attached to the tampon body and leave the cord hanging. With two fingers hold the grooved rings on the bottom of the outer tube. Place your forefinger at the end of the inner tube "bottom of the applicator".
Place the rounded tip of the cardboard applicator tampon at the vaginal opening.
Point the applicator tampon toward your lower back and gently push it into your vagina in the direction with the least resistance.
While holding firmly on to the grooved rings of the outer tube, use your forefinger to push the end of the inner tube until it is all the way in the outer tube. Remove the cardboard applicator. Make sure not to hold the withdrawal cord as the applicator is being removed out.
When the tampon is inserted correctly, there will be no feeling of it. If there are feelings of discomfort, the tampon may not be inserted deep enough into the vagina. To feel more comfortable, push the tampon further in with your middle finger or remove it and try again with a new tampon.
Tampon Removal Instructions:
Sit on the toilet with your knees apart or sit on your heals with your knees apart. Keep your vaginal muscles relaxed.
Gently and steadily pull the withdrawal cord out downward and forward.
Once the tampon has been removed and disposed, wash your hands.
For any reasons, if you can't find the withdrawal string, wait for the tampon to become completely saturated. Bend your body and push, then the tampon will be moved downwards and you will be able to remove it easily.
If you feel any resistance while trying to remove the tampon, it can be due to the tampon not being fully saturated.
If you fail to remove the tampon out, please contact your Gynecologist immediately.
Tampon Disposal Instructions:
Used Tampon, its cardboard applicator and protective wrap may be flushed in the toilet or disposed in a trash basket.
Changing or Using your Tampons:
The frequency of changing tampons depends on each individual's intensity of menstrual flow. You have to change or remove your tampon every 4 to 6 hours.
Always select the lowest absorbency level to meet your needs.
Tampons can hardly be felt, so always make sure to remove the old tampon before inserting a new one.
Always remove the last tampon at the end of your period.
Do not use tampons before or after your Menstrual period.
Avoid using tampons while you are sleeping. Use classic sanitary napkins during bed time.
Tampons do not need to be changed after every visit to the restroom.
Always use one single tampon at a time.
Using Tampons for the first time: Most women need a little practice before they become familiar with using and properly insertion of tampons. Choose a day when you feel relaxed and your menstrual flow is moderate. Be Patient and follow these easy step-by-step instructions. Soon you will find your way.
How does it feel to wear a tampon? If the tampon has been properly inserted, you should not feel it at all. If you are feeling uncomfortable, it means the tampon has not been inserted deep enough. To feel more comfortable, you can push the tampon further in with your middle finger or remove it and try again with a new tampon.
Does it hurt to insert a tampon? You may feel a little uncomfortable when you start inserting a tampon into your body because of the nerves ending at the vaginal opening. Otherwise insertion of a tampon should not be painful. It needs a little patience. If the tampon is in the right place then you shouldn't feel anything.
Which absorbency is right to use? Always use tampons with the lowest absorbency to meet your needs. Every box of tampons includes an absorbency chart to help you choose the right product. By using the right absorbencies, you'll get the best combination of protection and comfort.
Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) Tampons are associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). TSS is a rare but serious and sometimes fatal disease associated with tampon use. About half of the cases are associated with tampon use and the remainder half occurs in women who are not menstruating, men and children.
What are the warning signs? Sudden high fever (usually 38.8C/102F or more), vomiting, diarrhea, fainting or near fainting when standing up, dizziness or a rash that looks like sunburn. Other signs include aching of muscles and joints, redness of the eyes, sore throat and weakness.
TSS can rapidly progress from flu-like symptoms to a serious illness that can be fatal. If you have one or more of these warning signs, immediately remove your tampon and contact your physician. TSS is a treatable disease by early recognition.
There is a risk of TSS to all women using tampons during their menstrual period. Scientists believe that TSS requires toxins produced by Staphylococcus aurous, a bacterium that sometimes causes infections.
It has been estimated that 1-17 of every 100.000 menstruating women and girls will get TSS each year. The risk is reported to be higher for teens and women under 30.
Studies indicate higher absorbency tampons increase the risk of getting TSS. Therefore, to reduce the risk of getting TSS, use a tampon with the minimum absorbency needed for your menstrual flow.
You can also reduce the risk of TSS by alternating tampon use with feminine pads. You can avoid the risk of tampon associated TSS by not using tampons.
Consult your doctor if you have any questions about TSS, tampon use, or have experienced any warning symptoms of TSS in the past.

I recommend this product!
Why use conventional tampons that contain dioxin and other toxic bleaching by-products? These are bleach and dioxin-free and have an easy-to-use applicator. I just tried this particular brand for the first time and really like them.
