IF YOU'RE GOING TO CHANGE ONE THING, CHANGE YOUR TAMPON.
As you know, we’re big, huge, enormous fans of vaginas around here, which is precisely why we believe in treating them right, no matter what time of the month.
Well duh! you might be thinking; and if so, you’re already a nature’s pocket rock star. But actually, it’s harder than you might think to avoid accidentally putting, say, synthetic perfume right on up inside yourself. Like, even when you don’t mean to, because these ingredients are in most tampons. You know what else is in tampons? Conventionally grown cotton, whitened and doctored with chlorine bleach, deodorant, and more. Furthermore, conventionally grown cotton is one of the most heavily sprayed crops around. Now, correct us if we’re wrong, but this is NOT stuff you want inside one of the most absorbent parts of your body - especially as the average vagina gets up close and personal with 11,000 tampons in their lifetime!
Unfortunately, it gets even scarier. The FDA does not require menstrual hygiene product manufacturers to disclose ingredients or conduct testing to determine their products’ long-term effects on women’s bodies. Yeah, you read that right. When we leave menstrual hygiene up to the corporations--almost all historically run by men--the safety, comfort, and impact of products on vaginas is not considered a priority. And if you know us, then you know we won’t just sit idly by as non-organic menstrual products continue to poison women and other menstruating people around the world.
Say hello to our organic cotton tampon, a product we love so much that we decided to make it ourselves. Our tampons are made from certified organic cotton; whitened without chemicals containing chlorine, and free of added deodorants, rayon, and fragrances.
And, finally, the best part about our products: there’s absolutely no compromise in product quality. Your vagina can thank us later. (But not in a creepy way… like, with a friendly wave or a thumbs up, maybe?)
