Campaigning for healthier periods
Natracare was created as a campaign to shake up the menstrual products industry and finally provide viable eco-friendly alternatives for periods.
The world’s first organic cotton tampon
Meet Susie, our founder and owner. She’s an eco-warrior, a pioneer, and developed the world’s first brand of organic & natural period products in 1989.
“In the 1980s I learnt about the dangers of dioxin pollution and the damaging impact of plastics. I was appalled to find my period products contained all these ingredients, and no natural disposable option existed. My immediate response was to research and develop an alternative that actually respected our bodies and our planet.”
Today the work doesn’t stop. We’re always improving the performance of the products, and finding new sustainable innovations to look after our environment.
Ethical and Sustainable
Being an ethical company means behaving consciously in everything we do. Our core principles are:
Caring for health
Caring for the planet
Caring for others
All Natracare menstrual pads, incontinence pads and maternity pads use organic and natural materials. Everything we use, do and create is a commitment to the highest ethical standards whether focussed on organic principles or biodegradability. Our entire supply chain, from raw materials and processing, shares in our commitment to manage and monitor resources respectfully and ethically.
The Ethical Company Organisation have repeatedly ranked us top of their table for menstrual products.
