Are There Toxins Hiding In Your Tampons

Are There Toxins Hiding In Your Tampons
We spoke to the team at Organyc to find out what could be hiding in our feminine hygiene products and why switching to natural, organic options could be seriously beneficial to our health. Here at Organyc, we use only natural and organic ingredients and materials to create our sanitary products. We use 100% certified organic cotton which makes our pads and liners up to 12 times more breathable than leading competitors. Clinical studies have proven this to be incredibly beneficial, with over 90% of women claiming their skin irritation issues were solved in just 3 months! Not only are we kind to your body, but kind to the environment too, with all our products being biodegradable and the majority of the packaging is too!

What makes Organyc different to regular sanitary brands?

Organyc only uses 100% certified organic cotton whereas conventional pads are often made of synthetic materials such as viscose, rayon, polypropylene and superabsorbent polymers. These materials are predominately plastic and ultimately made from our diminishing crude oil resources that cannot biodegrade. Using products which are biodegradable can make such a difference. Organyc has replaced all the synthetic materials with pure organic cotton, which is an excellent high-quality material, soft, comfortable, absorbent by nature (it can hold twenty times its weight in liquid), hypoallergenic and breathable. When you wear organic cotton, the air can pass through the fibres, and you avoid creating an over-humid micro-climate on the skin that can encourage the growth of bacteria, you are usually less sweaty and feel fresher.
