We care about everything we put in our bodies so why should tampons be any different? Did you know that tampon brands are not legally required to disclose actual tampon ingredients on their packaging? As it turns out, most tampons and feminine hygiene products are made using artificial fibers, polyester, rayon, not to mention the additional chemicals involved in the manufacturing process. YUCK!
Used every month, the average woman will use 15,000 tampons and pads over the course of her life and these less than natural ingredients could have some serious side effects. No research has been conducted on the long-term effects of artificial fibers in tampons. Crazy, right?
When I began reading about all of this I could feel myself getting warm, the blood rushed to my head and I immediately began ordering new tampons.
One of the brands I discovered is LOLA. Natural tampons made of 100% cotton, their products are hypoallergenic and don’t contain any synthetics, chemicals, or dyes AND it’s a monthly subscription service so you don’t have to stress about buying more every month.
Win? I think so. Anyone else using natural or organic tampons that they like?
