Do you know what disposable pads and tampons are made of?
You can avoid exposing yourself to the potentially harmful chemicals and synthetic materials found in most disposable pads & tampons by choosing underwear that can replace them!
Disposable pads and tampons are made primarily of bleached wood pulp or viscose rayon, made from wood cellulose.
What makes these products perform so effectively is the use of high tech chemicals, like super-absorbent acrylic polymers (SAPs) and surfactant-laced gels.
The long-term health and environmental impact of these chemical ingredients is contentious and largely unknown. Ingredients commonly found in pads or tampons include: chlorine bleached rayon, dioxins, pesticides, GMO cotton, and fragrances – a catch-all term that represents an undisclosed mixture of chemicals🙀.
