Organic tampons are made of 100% pure organic compounds. This makes them not only beneficial to users but also to the environment as recommended by environmental conservation institutions. Let’s look at the top benefits of using organic tampons during your menstrual cycle.
Organic tampons are 100% pure non-GMO cotton. Therefore, they are free from hormone-disrupting chemicals. They use peroxide for bleaching, unlike inorganic tampons that use chlorine which then creates dioxin as a byproduct. Dioxin is a known carcinogen-substance that is capable of causing cancer.
If you have sensitive skin, then you should be happy to learn that organic tampons are not scented and do not have fragrance. This makes them suitable for every user who's affected by the fragrances in inorganic tampons.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) deals with promoting, supervising, and controlling food safety and drug administration. They deal with the use of biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, among many other services of which organic tampons fall under. They therefore monitor and control the manufacture of organic tampons making them safe to users.
FDA recommends that if you experience side effects when using organic tampons to report the case in their platform. So far, few cases have been reported and only a handful of people have reported minor effects like irritations which means our products are safe to use.
Organic tampons give users peace of mind because they are aware that the product is purely organic and does not or cannot bring side effects associated with chemicals to their body.
Phthalates are chemicals found in fragrances. They are known to disrupt the endocrine system. Organic tampons do not contain any of these chemicals and therefore do not cause hormonal disruption such as estrogen dominance which may lead to heavy flows during periods.
Organic cotton farmers do not use any chemicals in growing their cotton. Such chemicals include pesticides, fertilizers, insecticides, and other chemicals used by inorganic farmers. This means less pollution to the environment.
Organically grown cotton does not have chemical compounds. Therefore everything is biodegradable and compostable.
Organic tampons come with biodegradable applicators and this makes them friendly to the environment. Others may not have applicators which is an advantage to the environment as it leads to less wastage.
Because organic cotton is not grown with chemicals, its cultivation is friendly to both birds, insectsand other wildlife animals that depend on the crop either for nectar or other uses.
