Natracare Organic Cotton Tampons are made from only certified organic 100% cotton and were the world's first fully certified organic cotton tampons.
These organic tampons are non-chlorine bleached and do not contain synthetic materials, such as rayon, or chemical additives such as binders or surfactants. Rayon and rayon-cotton blends are widely used in the manufacture of tampons. Rayon is commonly chlorine-bleached and is a highly absorbent fibre which rapidly absorbs menstrual blood but, at the same time, can also dry out the natural protective mucous lining of the vagina.
Natracare tampons were developed as a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine bleaching, the extensive use of pesticide spraying on conventionally grown cotton, and the use of rayon and other synthetics in tampons. Dioxin, a toxic carcinogen, is a by-product of all chlorine bleaching methods and is also found throughout the environment in varying levels as a by-product of pesticide spraying and pollution from incinerators. It has been found that dioxin collects in the fatty tissues of animals, including humans and should, therefore, be a real concern for women. Evidence is growing that even low levels of dioxins may be linked to cancer, endometriosis, low sperm counts and immune system suppression. When you consider the huge number of tampons a woman may use in her lifetime, she may be subjecting herself to additional dioxin exposure.
Certified organic cotton removes the risk of direct exposure to residues from chemical pesticides and fertilisers used on traditional cotton.
