Most conventional feminine hygiene products contain a host of synthetic materials, additives, chemicals and artificial colours. This area is highly sensitive and it's skin is highly permeable. Not only can these synthetic materials irritate the skin but chemicals can enter the bloodstream through the skin and be transported throughout the body.
Minimising contact with unnecessary chemicals and synthetic materials is recommended for overall good health. Thankfully there are a number of alternative feminine hygiene products available. Natural, organic tampons and sanitary pads are safe to use, comfortable and reliable. They are often more environmentally friendly as they are plastic-free and biodegradable.
