Did you know companies that make period products don't have to fully disclose the ingredients of their tampons and pads on their packaging? That's because they are considered to be "medical devices."
Tampons and pads with odor neutralizers and other artificial fragrances are nothing short of a chemical soup laced with artificial colors, polyester, adhesives, polyethylene (PET), polypropylene, and propylene glycol (PEG), contaminants linked to hormone disruption, cancer, birth defects, dryness, and infertility.
However, we don't know for sure if they are present, because companies are not required to disclose the ingredients in their products!
See what happens when we light two brands of sanitary pads on fire. The results are shocking!
For our Savvy Swap we choose 100% cotton pads from Natracare. It's a brand we truly trust to protect us.
