Natracare Organic Cotton Intimate Wipes - 12 Wipes
Natracare Organic Cotton Intimate Wipes are pure organic cotton wipes with natural plant extracts of Calendula and Chamomile.
For everyday freshness, during your period, or when travelling, Natracare certified Organic Cotton natural wipes, enriched with Calendula and Chamomile are gentle for cleansing delicate skin because we only use ingredients derived from plants and never use the harsh chemicals and damaging preservatives used in everyday wipes.
Choosing natracare natural organic cotton intimate wipes allows you to avoid materials derived from petrochemicals, and skin irritating ingredients such as propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, and formaldehyde releasing preservatives such as imidazolidinyl urea, which is the second most identified cosmetic preservative causing contact dermatitis according to The American Academy of Dermatology.
Our skin is constantly being bombarded with toxic chemicals and irritants from the environment around us as well as being undermined by the mass of products marketed to us with unfulfilled promises and an unknown legacy, including the pollution from the discarded wipes which are mostly made from petroleum derived nonwoven materials such as polypropylene or chlorine bleached viscose.
Many of the wet wipes widely available contain harsh foaming agents like sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), as well as synthetic preservatives such as phenoxyethanol and the Parabens, recently flagged up as a concern for health. Parabens, including methyl, propyl, butyl and ethyl paraben, are just one of a large group of toxic chemicals that no-one has any idea about what the long term effects are likely to be if they are used every day on human skin.
There are a whole range of chemicals widely used in wipes about which we need to ask the question; shouldn’t we be more cautious about using products that contain such chemicals? People with sensitive skin should not only exclude the chemicals listed above, but also actively avoid propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol (PEG), Isopropyl myristate, and formaldehyde releasing preservatives such as imidazolidinyl urea.
Natracare's gentle formula is free from alcohol, detergents, such as sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS and any of its close relatives), parabens, SHG and other types of toxic, formaldehyde releasing preservatives.
Because Natracare does not use any animal ingredients nor test on animals, the wipes are suitable for vegans. For your peace of mind as well as for our extensive quality requirements, the wipes are dermatological tested only on human volunteers. The individual wipes and the solution ingredients are derived from natural, renewable and sustainable resources and are biodegradable and compostable.
Natracare organic cotton cleansing wipes are designed for women to use as part of their daily intimate hygiene, especially during menstruation and as an extra convenience when travelling. The soft and strong, certified organic, 100% cotton wipes are infused with the certified organic essential oils of chamomile, calendula and French rose as well as natural plant extracts, all of which will cleanse and refresh, leaving the skin softened.
Why Natracare Liners?
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.
Natracare organic cotton tampons and organic and natural pads 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 feminine hygiene.
