Most brands of tampons are made from a mix of rayon and non-organic cotton, and are commonly chlorine-bleached. Some tampons may even be wrapped in a plastic outer, or be dyed a different colour. Rayon is a highly absorbent fibre which rapidly absorbs menstrual blood but at the same time can also dry out the natural protective mucous lining of the vagina. Natracare believes that women should not be exposed to pesticide residues, phthalates, azo-dyes and dioxins, especially in such a sensitive and absorptive part of the body. By using only 100% organic cotton and nothing else, you know exactly what you are putting into your body.
The Sustainable Choice
Every year, billions of plastic laden pads and liners are disposed of by women. Most of these pads are made from over 90% crude oil plastic which goes on to pollute global environments forever. This plastic waste ends up in landfill sites and oceans, causing visual pollution, damaging marine life and ultimately the food chain. By choosing Natracare, you are saying no to crude oil plastics.
Natracare products are made from renewable, natural materials including organic cotton, bioplastics (made from plant starch) and wood pulp. Ethical, environmental and animal-friendly, Natracare products are biodegradable – and can even be composted!
An Example of Natracare's Sustainability
A woman uses on average around 11,000 pads or tampons in her lifetime. Most sanitary pads are made of 90% plastic material. Cotton is the Earth's most heavily pesticide-sprayed crop. Certified organic cotton however, is traded fairly, free from toxic chemicals and protects workers' health. Solution: the carbon footprint of a Natracare pad is 23.5gCo2 -no other brand has even measured theirs!

“Back in 1989, I saw a documentary about the growing danger to human health and the environment of Dioxin pollution from pulping industries with the chlorine bleaching of paper products. What made me especially angry was the unconcerned response of the international feminine hygiene brands.
I was so appalled that my immediate response was to research and develop an alternative that respected women’s bodies and our planet.
Natracare was the world’s first alternative to conventionally produced feminine hygiene, including the world’s first certified organic cotton tampons and totally chlorine-free sanitary pads and panty liners.”
