We Live in a Toxic World
One’s health can be affected by a variety of factors that we are unable to control, like genetics, income, where we live, relationships, mental well-being etc. However, there are some things that we can control, like the products we use, which are in direct contact with our bodies.
Our skin, besides being the largest organ in our body, absorbs what we put on it very quickly. Think about it, if you sit in the bath too long, you will soon see your skin become wrinkly as a reaction to the water, right? So what happens to our bodies if we put chemicals on them? Something to think about.
Let’s talk tampons for a minute
Natracare tampons are rayon-free, biodegradable and , and plastic-free. Additionally they are 100% certified organic cotton and guaranteed to be GMO-free. This is noteworthy, as you have to consider the pesticides that are sprayed on cotton crops otherwise.
On the other hand, most tampons on the market are made of rayon, which is an abrasive fiber. When this kind of product absorbs inside a female body it can push around the cervical area, causing tiny cuts and imbedding pieces inside our human tissue. Additionally, rayon dries out the natural protective mucous lining of the vagina. Other ingredients found in mainstream tampons may include fragrance, alcohol, aluminum, and hydrocarbons. On top of all of this, when a tampon of this nature is bleached with chlorine, it leaves behind the carcinogenic dioxin, which is one of most dangerous and deadliest chemicals known to humankind. It also wreaks havoc on our Earth in the form of pollution.
So how does Natracare bleach their products and make them so white if they do not use the mainstream dioxin way? I wondered the same thing, so I asked. The answer? Natracare only uses TCF processes for all of its products. Totally Chlorine-Free (TCF) is the only 100% chlorine-free bleaching process, which uses oxygen from hydrogen peroxide. Oxygen bleaching is the safest process for the environment as it does not release toxins into the environment. This water and oxygen process is used to destroy any bacteria in the cotton or pulp, resulting in the purification and whitening of the raw material. You can read more about this HERE.
Natracare makes wipes, maternity products, pads, tampons and panty liners which are available in 54 countries. As the Natracare tampons are a safer alternative, so are all of their products across the board. You can find a stockist near you by using store locator HERE
