We buy organic food, organic clothing and organic skin care, so why not organic tampons?
Your sensitive bits are one of the most absorbent part of your body, and every month you use generic tampons with herbicides, pesticides, chlorine and fragrances that are absorbed by your body and may cause irritation. We thought this was crazy, so we made it our mission to source tampons that were 100% organic from a reliable supplier in Europe. Organic tampons have been found to also decrease toxic shock syndrome and cramps caused by irritation, which we think is great news!
Here at The Monthly Co. we believe in transparency, so we will never hide the ingredients in our tampons. Tampons are listed as a medical device and therefor not required to list their components on packaging. This means often large companies use wood pulp which is heavily processed using harsh chemicals to turn it into synthetic fibres which end up in their tampons. The Monthly Co. tampons are 100% cotton, so all fibres are natural.
It keeps getting better however! Due to the tampons having less chemicals and being made from natural fibres, they decompose significantly faster than their synthetic counterpart, reducing your footprint on the earth. All our packaging is also recyclable, with the hygienic plastic wrapper being the only necessary plastics used.
