Conventional vs Natracare absorbencies?


All brands of tampons (natural or otherwise) must follow an internationally set standard for absorbency.

We offer three options to suit all levels of menstrual flow, from the very heavy to the super light. Natracare tampons are made from only 100% organic cotton. Other tampons commonly use rayon, which is a highly absorbent fibre that rapidly absorbs menstrual blood, but at the same time can also dry out the natural protective mucous lining of the vagina. Cotton is a softer material and is less likely to dry out the vagina.


Unlike tampons, pads do not have standardised absorbencies. The droplets on our packs help you compare how absorbent each pads against another and are a useful indicator of how to match a pad with your flow.

Natracare pads do not contain superabsorbent gels because we don’t believe crude oil materials and skin irritants belong in period products. A natracare pad will absorb less than most conventional pads, but are less likely to cause skin dryness, sores or irritation associated with wearing a pad with too high an absorbency. Our tests show that conventional pads contain at least 3x more gels than needed for a “typical” period.

We know from 30 years of experience how to manage a period naturally and effectively.

Quotes from customers

Honestly the best cotton pads, panty liners or tampons I’ve ever used, and so much better for my body too.


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.


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.


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.
