Thank you to everyone who has sent us their Natracare story. We love to hear from you, so if you want to share yours please get in touch.
Your product is amazing! It solved my “southern hemisphere” itching situation. Thank you!
Many thanks for your brilliantly chemical-free qualified organic personal products! I’m immensely thankful to have the option to protect my body in this way from toxic commercial versions.
I can’t believe the difference – I used to suffer a burning sensation when using any type of sanitary products. In fact I was hospitalised after the birth of my first daughter when using supplied hospital pads. Since finding natracare, I no longer “burn”. I am concerned about pollutants from manufacturing industries. Natracare is proud to use wood pulp from managed forests, a chlorine free manufacturing process and biodegradable components. I am proud to support them.
I began using your product, Natracare organic cotton tampons, about four months ago. Immediately I noticed a difference with my menstrual periods – they were not painful anymore. No severe abdominal cramps and my blood flow was so much less. For 20 years I had been using Playtex and had no idea they were the reason my periods were so intense and painful. For four months straight now, my life has continued to improve because of this product.
Hi there, after years and years of suffering with having to use pads that left a major rash month after month, I am finally able to use a tampon! Thank you so much! I found you at Superstore, thought I would give it a try, and after one month, WOW, what a difference! After all these years, I did not suffer. Thank you so much for your product! You have changed my life!
I just wanted to say thank you very much and that you are a wonderful company! I used to be in dire agony from the standard sanitary towels, made with nylon, bleached materials and made from god knows what nasty materials. I know this as I used to dread periods, as I reacted unfavourable to the standard ones – horrible horrible things. Just wanted to say it’s great and I’m very glad I know of Natracare, as you do a fantastic job. Thank you!! :-)
Hi, I just wanted to say thanks for being my trusted choice. This will be my third operation coming up in August, keyhole endo surgery. I’m sure most people know you do need to use this product before and after, so you have been with me for a few years now. I did venture “out” to my regret to try another brand but finding out the truth about that place nearly put me in hospital! Your maternity pads are and always will be the best. Thank you once again, I’m just about to purchase my supply to see me though and for hopefully my future once a months… love to you all xxx
I think your products are amazing and very good value, they are an absolute godsend for me because the chemicals in the ‘conventional’ products I ‘always’ used to use eventually started to give me chemical burns every month which took another week to heal from. What a joy not to suffer that any longer. I have a superabsorbent gel issue, and I am so very glad not to have to absorb any of that stuff via very delicate skin any longer. I have been using your products for years now, and when I became a mother I used your new mother pads which are by far the softest and comfiest pads out there that I have found. Add to that the Eco friendliness of your products and you can’t really ask for more. Keep on keeping on, you rock!!
I just wanted to say that I love your line of organic cotton tampons. I stopped using pads a long time ago for the comfort of tampons, and when I started eating organic foods and living a healthier lifestyle, I looked for a replacement for my tampons. I had many a friend swear by the diva cup, but personally, it’s a little too gross for me. I was thrilled to find an organic tampon. Thank you for creating such a great product.
I never understood why ALL the other products have plastic lining. Who puts up with this? I have never once said to myself, “Wouldn’t plastic underwear be SO comfortable?”
I am glad I discovered Natracare at Pharmasave in Canada and relived to have found a product that is comfortable, breathable and most importantly doesn’t irritate my skin! I just moved to the USA and am happy to see on your website that Wholefoods offers your products. I seriously brought over 8 boxes of your products with me in case I couldn’t find them here and would have to order my own supply!
I often wondered about the detrimental effects these feminine hygiene products have on the environment and am proud to say I no longer contribute to the problem because of your wonderful product line. THANK YOU!!
I usually bought the regular brands of pads, but the itch started…and the cracking…and the pain when I urinated with cracked skin in the most sensitive of places. Sex wasn’t much fun, either. I tried antibiotic creams (promoted yeast infections), cortisone creams (not good for thin vaginal skin), “feminine itch” creams (didn’t do much), antihistamines…
And then I tried Natracare pads. Itch stopped, cracks healed, bathroom and bedroom activities SO much more comfortable. I can’t imagine what I was thinking when paying just a few extra cents for a safer, less irritating product didn’t seem worth it. Chlorine and plastics are just no good for these sensitive parts of our bodies – but it took outright bodily revolt for me to catch on. Thank you for giving me a safer alternative, and a huge amount of relief.
Honestly the best cotton pads, panty liners or tampons I’ve ever used, and so much better for my body too.
Just wanted to let you know what marvellous products you’re making! I really appreciate the fact there is somewhere where I can buy such brilliant sanitary protection. It is highly important to me to use protection that has no harmful chemicals in and feels comfortable. I have been using your products for a number of years now including wipes and tampons and would never use any brand but yours. So keep up the wonderful work!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Natracare. You are my new best friend. I just broke up with o.b. and the J&J group. I am so glad to know about your products! You have a new loyal fan, who is very happy about the fact you provide a product that is 100% cotton, works like a charm, is applicator free, and does not add to the plastic in our landfills.
I want to thank you for your natural pads. I started using them instead of plastic ones in an attempt to heal a rash that has plagued me for a long time. After 4 babies, I have a week bladder and have to wear protection all the time. I wondered if wearing a plastic/bleach product over an irritated space would increase the heat of that space and worsen rashes or yeast. I think they do. Since starting to wear Natracare exclusively, I have healed 90%. A bonus was the reduction & healing of a rash on the buttocks also. I think that my wearing plastic/bleach products for incontinence was giving me the rashes. Thank you. I feel cooler, more comfortable, and safe from leaks.
First off, let me say how much I love your products. Over the past year I have been making the switch to all natural/organic products in my household. Feminine products were something I didn’t think I would be able to find until I found your products. I especially love that they are made with organic cotton. Thank you for making products for us women that will help keep us healthier and safe from all the chemicals that are in most other products.
I just wanted to say that the Feminine Wipes are fantastic!
Thank you for creating a useful product that’s safe for my health and for the environment.
After trying nearly every product on the market, I have finally found one that agrees with my body. I no longer have rashes, itchiness or leaking problems. I feel healthier and more confident.
I finally found feminine hygiene products I can trust and be confident that they are safe for me to use against my body – thank you!
Just wanted to say I love having the choice of a natural, 100% organic cotton tampons. I was diagnosed with non-hormonal related breast cancer 5 years ago when I was 34. I don’t have a family history. I can’t help but feel it was a lifetime exposure to environmental toxins. With Natracare products, I can a least eliminate that area of toxin exposure and I will have my 6 year old daughter use these products too when the time comes.
I was looking for a product that has no chemicals, perfumes or plastics and found Natracare. I no longer suffer with ‘normal’ itchiness. When mum wins, the whole family wins!
Hello, just wanted to say how much I like the ultra-thin panty liners. They are so compact and I love how they will have a smaller landfill impact. Thank you.
I recently changed to using your products and am so happy to have found them. I have always had harsh symptoms when it came to that time of the month but since using your products they have mostly vanished. My doctor mentioned that with my allergies and chemical sensitivities that the chemical free tampons and pads probably had a lot to do with it.
I have been using your products in Canada since 1995 and will never use any other product again! I remember reading about dioxins and immediately made the connection between them and the female reproductive cancer rates – a no-brainer as far as I’m concerned! I have an 11 year old daughter who will be starting her period soon and I am beyond happy that I don’t have to poison her with garbage. We are a hugely committed family when it comes to the planet and love to spread the word, and your products are on our list to share.
Just a note to say I was reading the magazine VIVA tonight and saw the small article on Natracare products. It reminded me that I’ve never voiced thanks for the product. I once got a terrible chemical burn from using Always pads and my doctor said it was from the bleach in the pads. She recommended that I use washable cotton pads or unbleached pads. Thanks for thinking further than the problem to a resolution.
Compared to other brands I have used, Natracare feels the safest and the cleanest, and I no longer have to put up with the irritation, soreness and aches that I thought were part of a normal period. I have been using Natracare products for 22 months now, and I have no-pain periods since using your products – and I really noticed it when I ran out 2 months ago, and had to go back to my old brand for a month!!
4 years ago I was diagnosed with Vulvodynia (The International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disease (ISSVD) defines Vulvodynia as chronic vulvar discomfort or pain, characterized by burning, stinging, irritation or rawness of the female genitalia) as well as Lichen Sclerosis/ Planus. (Lichen sclerosis is a poorly recognized chronic inflammatory skin disorder which mainly affects the vulvar and perianal area – lichensclerosis.org) As expected it is very painful. I had to struggle so much with doctors, the health care system and day to day pain.
It was so reassuring to rely on Natracare products, knowing they were not making my skin and pain problems worse. The amount of chemicals put in other pads and tampons really scares me, and I think they are the cause to many vulvar problems today, as my doctor would say “they are just eating women’s vulva’s away!” lol. Thank you for making a safe and effective product for women. I have passed the name of your product on to many friends, as well as a nearby chronic pain center where I attend a Vulvar Pain Program with many other women.
The women who participated in the trial reported a definite improvement when they used the tampons. The women were either candida sufferers or had experienced vulval itchiness or soreness, and all expressed some improvement with the tampons and will continue to buy and use them.
Please make these available in supermarkets as they are far superior to other brands I have used and I have had no thrush-like symptoms since using them!

When using other brands of tampons, I always got an infection after only half an hour of use when in full flow. This resulted in a very bad smell for days after the period had finished. This has never happened to me with Natracare tampons

I have just recently discovered your products, and I am a convert. I applaud both your products and your company’s “corporate citizenship.” I intend to make sure my local schools are aware of your School Program, I think it and your monthly matrix are fabulous, I wish they had been around when I was a teenager. I think it is also a wonderful stepping stone to getting young women more involved and more knowledgeable about their health and their environment. Bravo to you!
I can’t tell you how happy I am with the Natracare products. I have had a terrible allergy with intense itching to sanitary pads including the adhesive strips, so bad my GP said she had never seen such a huge reaction like the ones I was experiencing. It would take days for the allergy to disappear despite using a strong steroid cream. I had tried every product out there and had the same reaction.
I am totally over the moon as I have now tried Natracare products and have had no reaction. These products have totally transformed my life. Highly recommend them.
