About Natracare Organic Cotton Tampons Super Plus (20 Tampons)
Natracare Organic Super Plus Cotton Tampons
Most brands of tampons are made from a mix of rayon and non-organic cotton, and are commonly chlorine-bleached. Some tampons may even be wrapped in a plastic outer, or be dyed a different colour. 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.
We believe that women should not be exposed to pesticide residues, phthalates, azo-dyes and dioxins, especially in such a sensitive and absorptive part of the body. By using only 100% organic cotton and nothing else, you know exactly what you are putting into your body.
The Natracare smooth, easy glide cardboard applicator helps with the insertion of the tampon. The material used to make this biodegradable applicator tube is totally chlorine-free. The organic cotton wadding of the Natracare applicator tampon is designed to expand lengthways, elongating as the menstrual flow is gently absorbed. The organic cotton withdrawal cord allows you to easily remove the tampon after use.
The applicator tubes of many brands are often made from plastic. One of the chemical groups found in plastic are phthalates, which can be absorbed through the skin. Disposal of these plastic products contributes to global marine pollution.

With clean and dry hands, unwrap the tampon by tearing the coloured strip and pull the wrapper from both ends of the tampon. Do a quick safety tug on the tampon string to made sure it’s securely attached to the tampon. Now, hold your index finger to the base of the tampon, flaring the cotton a little. With your other hand you might want to open the folds of skin around the vagina so you can push the tampon well into your vagina easily. Aim to push upwards and backwards towards the small of the back. If you can still feel the tampon, it might need pushing a little further inside. The tampon string should remain outside the vagina, easily accessible and ready for removal.
