Product Description

Natracare® Organic All Cotton Tampons.
100% Cotton. Certified Organic. Non-chlorine bleached.
Why organic tampons? In 1989, Natracare was developed as a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine conventionally grown cotton. For over 15 years, natracare has been trusted by women who see the good sense in making a natural choice in tampons, pads, panty liners and feminine wipes for their monthly cycle. It makes sense to choose a tampon that is made from only certified organic cotton to avoid unnecessary exposure to chemical residuals and synthetics. Natracare Organic cotton tampons and chemical free pads are high quality products made from only pure and natural materials that are not chlorine bleached and are free of rayon, plastics and synthetic materials.
Why organic tampons?
Natracare was developed as a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine bleaching, the use of rayon in tampons and the extensive use of pesticides on conventionally grown GM cotton. Since 1989, Natracare has been trusted by women the world over, seeking a chemical-free choice in tampons, pads, liners and wipes.

Natracare tampons are made from only certified organic 100% cotton ensuring soft, reliable and comfortable protection. They are non-chlorine bleached and do not contain synthetic materials, such as rayon, or chemical additives such as fragrances, dyes, binders or surfactants. Certified organic cotton removes the risk of direct exposure to residues from chemical pesticides and fertilisers used on traditional cotton.
The smooth, easy glide, plastic free, cardboard applicator has a rounded, petal-shaped end that makes inserting the tampon easier and more comfortable. The applicator is made from totally chlorine-free, biodegradable card. The world's first fully certified organic cotton tampons.
Available in regular and super absorbencies.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

worth it

Yes, the applicators are trickier to use than your plastic Tampax Pearl but not impossible by any means and completely worth it - these feel great and absorb well. I haven't gone back to non-organic brands.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Only brand I'll use

Since switching to organic sanitary items I no longer suffer with post period thrush. If you give the applicator a little twist before inserting it loosens it up and prevents it sticking and collapsing as other reviewers have found.

Really wanted to love these

Like some of the other reviewers I found the applicators just simply didn't work. Such a pity as for reasons both ecological and health related I was keen to use an organic brand. Got one to work and found it disintegrated on the way out, so simply through two boxes away. As a refund at this point isn't possible, I am instead posting my first ever product review in hope that others won't waste their money.

These used to be good but....

I have bought these for about 2 years and up until recently they have been great. I am probably throwing away 50% of the pack because they do not 'push up' properly, absorbency-wise they are great if you can get them to work!

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear you were not 100% happy with this product. We will pass on your feedback to the supplier.
