What it’s all about
Natracare traditional style maxi pads have a new and improved design! Made from natural materials our maxi pads help you feel comfortably protected.
Regular maxi pads come individually wrapped so they’re easy to carry around when you’re out and about. The regular absorbency pads without wings are suitable for a lighter menstrual flow or towards the end of your period.
All Natracare pads are commercially compostable to EN 13432. This means our pads break down into organic matter and return to soil when composted, so less waste to worry about. It is also possible to compost pads at home.
Gynaecologist recommended and suitable for sensitive skin or those with allergies. Natracare helps reduce your exposure to synthetic materials and ingredients, including plastic, perfume and dyes often found in conventional period products.
No matter where you are in the world, you can count on us for plastic free period products. Make the switch today!
Q: “Why use wood pulp inside of the pads?”
We never use chemically processed pulp (such as rayon aka viscose) or synthetic materials in our pads. Instead, we use fluffed wood pulp in the absorbent core of our pads. Our pulp is sustainably sourced from fast growing, Scandinavian pine trees – which is very absorbent! We mechanically process the wood to make it soft and fluffy – this fibre structure is more absorbent than using cotton alone. Pulp is natural, renewable, and more sustainable alternative than the use of superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) found in most conventional pads.
The cover is made from certified organic cotton, and this sits next to the skin, acting as a soft cover to wick away leaks.
Q: “How to dispose of maxi pads?”
Natracare maxi pads are home compostable. This means that if you have a compost bin at home, you can dispose of them in there. They’re considered brown compost, and we recommend breaking up the pad using scissors before adding to your compost.
If you don’t have a compost bin at home, your pads can be disposed of in your regular bin using, ideally, a biodegradable bin liner.
