Health Information

Some women suffer from skin allergies and irritations, which can cause discomfort in varying degrees. Symptoms such as uncomfortable soreness and/or itchiness are often heightened during menstruation due to synthetic and plastic ingredients in sanitary products.

Natracare tampons are made from organic, 100% cotton, which is GM free and 100% non-chlorine bleached. Natracare tampons are free from rayon, binders, plastics, surfactants, resins and fragrances. Natracare's panty shields are made with a breathable liner, which is designed to allow air to circulate freely.

What's more, Natracare pads do not contain polyacrylic absorbents or have plastic covers that lie next to the skin, both of which can cause irritation. Many women have found relief from irritation when changing to Natracare products.

Dioxin pollution is a family of toxins which is one of the world's most serious environmental problems. Dioxin builds up cumulatively in the body over time from birth, so heightened exposure means heightened risk. The production of dioxins in the manufacture of paper pulp products such as tampons and sanitary pads, etc are not only harmful to the environment, but also unnecessarily expose women to low levels of dioxins every time they use these products.

Many people are worried about the use of pesticides in farming and choose to buy organic produce wherever possible. Non-organic cotton is sprayed with pesticides that release toxins, including dioxin, into the environment, leaving residuals in the cotton. Organic cotton avoids the practice of spraying crops with these pesticides.

Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is a rare but fatal disease caused by a particular type of bacteria that can produce toxins in the body. The symptoms of TSS come on fast and are often severe. Menstrual TSS has been linked to the use of super-absorbent and synthetics in tampons. Results of a study published, in, The journal of Infectious Diseases in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, suggest that the use of 100% cotton tampons may reduce the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome compared with tampons that contain rayon.

The study was carried out on 20 tampon varieties, including Natracare's 100% cotton tampons and concluded that all-cotton tampons did not produce the dangerous TSS toxin from the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, while other tampons did. Natracare tampons are made from organic, GM-free, 100% cotton and do not contain synthetic materials such as rayon.
