Why organic cotton tampons?

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 people 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 people who use tampons. 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 menstruating adult may use as many as 11,000 tampons in their lifetime, they may be subjecting themselves 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 people using these tampons 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.

Great product
These have been a life changer for my other brands which contain chemicals were causing no end of problems, when I found these I was so relieved
Very reliable, great ethical credentials
Great tampons. Do the job with no leaks and no nasty chemicals.
Daughter happy with product
Good all-natural tampon, but not as good as the most expensive branded ones which expand width ways. Fine for light to medium days.
As good as the leading brands , I've used for years, very pleased, will be using again.
Very comfortable product
the odd applicator doesn't always work
Better than the bleached varieties.
No worrying chemicals
these are as good as most brands,nice to feel that they are a natural product
do the job as well as leading brands,like the thought of them being natural
Only sight gripe is that you have to push quite hard to get the tampon initially moving through the applicator. Otherwise good product that doesn't contain the nasties of the more well known brands.
One of the most important places to use natural products! and these work brilliantly.
I don't buy organic for everything, but I think it is very important that tampons are organic.
I only switched to these recently and I find them very comfortable. No more itchiness or nausea
No chemicals, great product
would recommend,great quality,
as good as the usual brands and I seem to be itching less
Not as reliable as other brands but prefer this chemical free product.
Great item, highly recommend
I'll purchase again.
had these for years and have no complaints.
I've used this brand for years wouldn't use anything else!
good product
Great alternative to your usual bleached cotton high street brands.
