What it’s all about
Organic regular tampons with a smooth easy-glide cardboard applicator, which is completely biodegradable. Just twist to release and push.
Most applicators are made from plastic or rigid bio-plastics. These commonly contain phthalates, which can be absorbed through the skin and cause hormone disruption. What’s more is they don’t biodegrade, contributing to worldwide plastic-pollution.
Many rayon-blend tampons have a plastic veil to prevent fibre-loss, and they can also have added perfume or dyes which is totally unnecessary for managing your period.
This is why we only ever use cardboard and organic cotton. We never use GM cotton or unnecessary plastic, so we keep your vagina free from pesticide residues, plastic or toxic residuals or rayon.
Our award-winning products are sold in over 60 countries worldwide. Make the switch today!
Q: “Which absorbency should I choose?”
Always go for the lowest absorbency that you need. During your period, you may find you use different absorbencies because your flow is lighter at the beginning or end of your period.
Q: “How often should I change my tampon?”
It’s important to change your tampons regularly, every 4-6 hours, and alternate between using tampons and pads. It is not recommended that you wear a tampon when you are sleeping because you will most likely be leaving it in too long. Please read carefully the instruction leaflet found in the tampon packs for how to use tampons safely.
Q: “How to use an applicator tampon?”
Some tampons come with an applicator, which acts as an aid to help insert a tampon. Natracare’s are made with biodegradable cardboard. Twist the two applicator halves to make ready to push, then press the bottom half upwards to push the tampon out through the top of the applicator. Some people prefer applicator tampons as a simple, more hands-free way to use tampons.
Q: “Why don’t you use a plant-based or plastic applicator?”
Plant-based plastics are not all biodegradable and compostable. They are often made with a higher renewable content than conventional plastic but they behave in exactly the same damaging way in the environment. Sadly these are often not even recyclable either.
Look for plant-based plastics that are “domestic compostable” to ensure they are safe for the environment. We only use cardboard and paper to wrap our tampons to guarantee they can return to the earth without damaging it.
