Hygiene during menstruation is an essentiality for a woman during her life over 35 to 40 years. Unfortunately, a majority of the womenfolk in India are deprived of the basic means of menstrual hygiene management due to factors such as illiteracy, poor economic scenario, social and cultural compulsions.
Why Choose Organic Over Conventional Pads?
Organic sanitary pads and liners have an organic plant-based top cover with corn, bamboo, wood, banana, jute pulp or cellulose absorbent core. This makes it free from any plastics, chlorine, latex, rayon, chemical additives or dyes. This organic nature makes them fully compostable and lessens the accumulation of plastic waste.
Benefits Of Biodegradable Sanitary Pads
- Basic Hygiene
The organic, biodegradable pads have an efficient absorbent cellulose core that is better suited to keep you dry. The sensitive skin around the genitalia does not react, keeping you rash-free. They are free of any chemicals and sterile which keeps away any bacterial and fungal infections.
Organic, biodegradable sanitary pads are free of any plastic. This quality makes these pads skin-friendly and obvious health hazards that originate from the rampant use of such harmful components. They also don’t pose a threat to the environment, unlike conventional pads that take about five hundred year to decompose.
Conventional sanitary pads become a source of plastic waste when billions of them are disposed of by women. It is a well-known fact that plastic does not decompose easily in nature and it is estimated that they may take up to 500 years to break down completely. Incineration is not a solution either as this releases toxic fumes that pollute the air, posing as another environmental hazard. Natural sanitary pads are biodegradable and decompose within 2 years of disposal.
Natural sanitary napkins don’t contain chemicals like chlorine or dioxin which may cause dangerous diseases like cervical cancer, miscarriages, birth defects in your future children or even UTIs. These pads make use of them safer for you in every aspect.
Sanitary pads indirectly impact animal life. Natural sanitary pads are vegan and their raw materials are grown in an organic environment. This makes sure there is no use of any pesticides which saves the lives of birds and animals in the fields.
