Here’s why you’ll love our organic cotton applicator tampons:

Soft & vagina friendly tampons ☁️

Synthetic fibers can lock in sweat and moisture, and disrupt your pH balance. We use organic cotton that’s super soft, breathable, and kinder to your vagina.

Trusted leak protection, the natural way🩸

Our tampons feature an absorbent organic cotton core wrapped in a soft organic cotton veil. A powerful combo to absorb menstrual flow whilst preventing fibre shedding.

No harmful ingredients 🧪

Inspired by your period, we keep it natural with our period care – no fragrance, dyes, artificial absorbents, or chlorine bleach.

Shaped for comfort ✌️

Experience the perfect fit and comfort with our gently expanding tampons. Our rounded cardboard applicators ensure smooth insertion without the plastic waste.

Why organic cotton tampons?
Product Ingredients

Conventional tampons are typically made with non-organic cotton, rayon, and polyester. When it comes to tampons, ingredients matter as your vagina is a highly sensitive area. That’s why our tampons are made with certified organic cotton that’s sustainably sourced without toxic pesticides or herbicides. 💚 We chose organic cotton as it’s naturally soft, absorbent, breathable and moisture-wicking, making it ideal to use in period care. ☁️ 

Applicator tampons: 

  • Organic cotton absorbent core. 
  • Organic cotton veil. 
  • Organic cotton string. 
  • Biodegradable cardboard applicator. 

Made without rayon, fragrance, dyes, or chlorine bleach.

Packaging: 

  • Tampons individually wrapped in recyclable paper. 
  • Packed in FSC certified & fully recyclable cardboard boxes 

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you use certified organic cotton?

We do! Our tampons, pads and liners are made with organic cotton that’s certified by ICEA to comply with the Global Organic Cotton Textiles Standard (GOTS). GOTS has a defined set of criteria for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria.

What are your applicator tampons made of?

Our applicator tampons have an organic cotton core, veil, and string. They also feature a biodegradable cardboard applicator and recyclable paper wrapper.

Are cardboard applicators easy to use?

We totally get that switching to cardboard applicators can be daunting, however they do the same job as plastic versions but without the environmental impact. Plastic tampon applicators are used for seconds but can stick around in landfill for up to 500 years. They cannot be widely recycled as they come into contact with bodily fluids therefore any form of plastic (whether conventional or bioplastic) will lead to plastic pollution. Our applicators are made with cardboard and will break down naturally after use.

To help you make the switch our applicators have a ‘twist-to-release’ to help the tampon glide out for a smoother insertion.

Are these as absorbent as other brands?

Our tampons comply with industry standard absorbency guidelines which you can find on the front of the pack and in our ‘help me choose’ guide above.

How are TOTM tampons different to other tampons?

Our tampons use 100% organic cotton from core to cover which sets them apart from other tampons on the market. Conventional tampons are typically made with non-organic cotton and rayon. They can also contain ingredients such as paraffin, glycerine, PEGs and titanium dioxide. These ingredients can all cause irritation during use and have a negative impact on the environment.

Our tampons do NOT use any of these ingredients. We use organic cotton from the core to the veil. Our veil helps to prevent fibre-shedding and irritation. Not all organic cotton tampons contain a veil, however we took this step for added comfort and safety.

Do your tampons contain PFAs?

No! PFA testing was conducted by EUROFINS in 2023 on our organic cotton pads and tampons. All of them passed the test under the acceptance criteria specified by AFIRM Restricted Substances List 2023 ver.08

Are TOTM tampons sterile?

Absolutely! Safety is important to us at TOTM, that’s why our tampons are produced in a sterile environment with UV lamps based on ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and 21 CFR 820 (US FDA) standards.
