Know exactly what you put in your body.
Most Tampons are made from a mix of rayon and non-organic cotton, and are commonly chlorine-bleached. These tampons often have a plastic wrapper too, and even contain perfumes and dyes. Rayon 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. The Natracare Super Plus Non-Applicator Tampon has been certified by MADE SAFE as a non-toxic product that is free from rayon, plastics, dyes, perfumes, and any other ingredients that may harm human health.
Which absorbency should I choose?
Always go for the lowest absorbency that you need. During your period, you may find you use different absorbencies because your flow is lighter at the beginning or end of your period.
What about Toxic Shock Syndrome?
Independent research, conducted at New York University Medical School, suggests that the use of 100% cotton tampons may reduce the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome compared with tampons that contain rayon. Natracare Super Plus Non-Applicator Tampons were included in this research, and in the tests they did not produce the bacteria which leads to Toxic Shock Syndrome. All brands containing rayon did produce the bacteria.
How often should I change my Natracare Super Plus Non-Applicator Tampon?
It’s important to change your Natracare Super Plus Non-Applicator Tampons regularly, every 4-6 hours, and alternate between using tampons and pads. It is not recommended that you wear a tampon when you are sleeping because you will most likely be leaving it in too long.
Please read carefully the instruction leaflet found in the tampon packs for how to use tampons safely.
