Natracare Organic Cotton Applicator Tampon

 

These tampons contain only 100% organic cotton and they were the world's first organically certified cotton tampon. Many women are unaware that rayon and rayon blended cottons are widely used in the manufacture of conventional tampons. Rayon is normally chlorine bleached and being a highly absorbent fibre it rapidly absorbs menstrual blood, but at the same time it can also dry out the natural protective mucous lining of the vagina.

Dioxin, which is a toxic carcinogen is a byproduct of chlorine bleaching and is widely found in our environment as a result of the use of synthetic pesticides and waste incineration. Dioxins have been found to collect in the fatty tissues of animals and humans. There is growing concern that exposure to even a low level of dioxins can cause cancer, endometriosis, low sperm counts and immune system supression. The average woman will use over 11,000 tampons during her lifetime, so by continuing to use conventional tampons she may be exposing herself to additional dioxins.
