Getting your monthly period is an inevitable thing for every girl and woman. Every month, you will have to look for sanitary pads or tampons to protect your underwear and for hygienic purposes. If what you want are feminine hygiene products that are made from 100% organic cotton, are plastic-free and chlorine-free, and don’t contain any rayon, then Natracare is what you’re looking for!
Natracare is a brand that started as a passion. The story of NatraCare began back in 1989 when Susie Hewson saw a documentary about the harmful effects of the pulping industries on the environment. Susie Hewson was appalled by the lack of response of international feminine hygiene brands, so much so that she started studying and developing an alternative to these products that respected both the planet and women's bodies. Thus, NatraCare was born.
NatraCare boasts the world's first certified organic cotton tampons and chlorine-free sanitary pads and panty liners. As a testament to their devotion to the environment and to ethics, NatraCare has already won several awards, such as the Women in Ethical Business Award from Triodos Bank and the Ethical Award from The Ethical Company Organisation. NatraCare has also been approved by the Vegetarian Society.
As a company, NatraCare stands for personal health care by way of organic and natural solutions. NatraCare uses only raw material sourced from producers who share the same principle on sustainability. The company engages in organic agriculture and help farming women gain their own income. NatraCare guarantees that all of its products reach the highest organic, environmental, and biodegradable standards.
With NatraCare, you are not only taking care of your body, you are also taking care of Mother Earth!
What are the benefits of NatraCare products?
Conventional sanitary pad are around 90% plastic, but NatraCare products are made from biodegradable and compostable materials. Instead of plastic, NatraCare uses organic cotton, bio-plastics made from plant starches, and wood pulp. By using NatraCare, you lower your exposure to pesticide residues! Using NatraCare also reduces plastic production, and in turn the amount of toxic pollution released into the environment. Aside from this, it also reduces the plastic waste that are sent to landfills or incarcerated.
NatraCare products are made from all-natural materials. This means that they are free from polyacrylate superabsorbents, petroleum derivatives, synthetic ingredients, latex, and perfumes. Studies have proven that these materials are linked to skin irritation. The natural ingredients NatraCare uses are more effective in locking away menstrual fluid. Furthermore, these natural ingredients make sure our skin is able to breathe freely and stay dry.
NatraCare uses only organic cotton for its tampons, instead of rayon cotton mix. Tampons made from a mixture of rayon fibre and pesticide-sprayed cotton can easily break and shed into the vagina during use. This increases the risk of vaginal infections. With NatraCare, you don't have to worry about this at all, because the fibre of organic cotton easily interlocks.
NatraCare products are gynaecologist-recommended. Many gynaecologists recognize NatraCare as the better brand, because using NatraCare reduces the chances of skin allergies, irritation, soreness, and itching.
