Rashes and irritation are not uncommon when wearing sanitary pads. As pads go through an extensive chemical treatment to become absorbent when in contact with the skin can trigger allergic reactions. Fortunately, while you cannot opt out of your period, you can choose the pads that can keep you truly protected and safe.

Why Organic Cotton Pads are the Healthier Choice
Organic Cotton Vs Plastic Pads
Traditional sanitary pads include plastic and chemicals linked to hormone imbalance and mood swings. They're also bleached, leaving dioxides linked to endometriosis. In contrast, organic cotton means the absence of toxic materials around your intimate area.
Organic Cotton Vs Bamboo
Bamboo is a sustainable material; however, as its fibres are not highly absorbent, manufacturers utilise wood pulp to enhance it. On the contrary, organic cotton doesn’t require industrial processing to convert it to fabric, and as a result, it outperforms bamboo.
Organic Cotton Vs Conventional Cotton
Cotton is a sustainable resource, but if not naturally cultivated it can contain chemicals such as fertilisers, pesticides or even transgenic technology. Organic cotton is grown without harmful chemicals or genetically engineered substances. This is what makes it safe for your body and your healthiest option.
Organic Cotton Vs Organic Cotton Topsheet
Organic cotton top sheet pads mean that the only part that is organic, is the one that touches your skin. When buying cotton pads you should be mindful as brands that indicate that they have organic cotton topsheet might mean that they are also using artificial and probably harmful materials
