Why go organic?

We use GOTS certified organic cotton in our tampons, pads and liners. Find out why we use organic!


The rise of organic cotton

Conventional cotton is considered to be the world’s ‘dirtiest crop’. This label is a result of the farming processes used to produce it and the use of toxic pesticides. It has a larger environmental impact which affects the future of our planet and natural life.

Organic cotton is farmed using sustainable practices without the use of toxic pesticides and herbicides. It’s increasingly in demand as we become more conscious of product ingredients and how this impacts not only our health but also our planet.

"Organic cotton feels softer since the threads of the fibre have not been damaged by chemicals"

Kind to your body

Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic pesticides. It’s GM-free and has a naturally soft, breathable texture.

This makes it ideal for use in period care which comes into contact with the sensitive and highly absorbent vaginal area. Additionally, chemical residue and additives can contain endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) which can disrupt hormonal balance.

Mainstream tampons, pads and liners are made with conventional cotton and have been found to also contain additional synthetic materials such as rayon, plastics and artificial absorbents. Find out more about this here!

Kind to the environment

Organic cotton farming is kind to the environment. Growing organic cotton produces up to 94% less greenhouse gas emissions. Organic practices use less water and nurture the soil which removes CO2 from the atmosphere.

It is also kind to farmer and agricultural workers by eliminating their exposure to hazardous synthetic pesticides. Organic farming also uses fair trade principles to pay workers a fair wage.
