Exceptional Environmental and Ethical Quality

The environmental, sustainable and effective quality of Natracare products is at our core. We validate all our claims with independent accreditation and product certification.

soil association logo

Soil Association Organic

Our tampons and wipes are certified organic by the UK certification body, the Soil Association.

We achieved this certification for our tampons back in 1994, and for our wipes in 2007.

The Soil Association started in 1946 with the intention of finding the health implications of intensive farming that increased after the Second World War. They developed the world’s first organic standards in the 1960’s. Today, the Soil Association certifies 70% of all organic food in the UK, and have branched out to certify in other industries, like health and beauty brands.

The Soil Association boasts some of the highest organic standards in the world, but they don’t just make them up as they go along! Their standards are set through a rigorous process of development and overseeing, conducted by external committees of experts.

The organic certification achieved by our tampons and wipes means that you can rest assured knowing they’re totally organic – better for workers, you and the planet!

1% for the Planet

Bleed 1% better knowing you’re protecting our planet by choosing Natracare.

In 2019, we became the first ever period product brand to become members of 1% for the Planet! 1% for the Planet is an international organisation that works to join businesses, non-profits and individuals together to support the planet.

The way it works is simple: to become a 1% for the Planet member, we’ve pledged to donate 1% of our annual turnover to environmental charities and organisations. Right now, that means that we’ll proudly be donating more than £200,000 a year to causes we stand for through our membership to the network.

Having started in 2002, the 1% for the Planet community is now operating in 60 countries, with over 2,000 business members donating every single year to help give back to the planet we love. Since its beginnings, $225 million has been given to environmental causes by 1% for the Planet members.
