Sound interesting? Okay, Ladies. Let’s start

1. Your vagina absorbs what… ?

tampons and pads

You use feminine products against your skin, the largest organ in your body. Did you know your vagina absorbs up to 65% (or more) of the products you put there? This is not a joke.

As you go about your day, you wear feminine products against your skin. Your skin, as already stated, is the largest organ in your body. It’s permeable, meaning it can absorb substances that come into contact with it. So placing these products on your skin is like devouring it (Are Your Tampons & Pads Affecting Your Hormones? — SHE CHANGES EVERYTHING, 2020).

2. Potential unhealthy chemicals in tampons and pads

When it comes to your vaginal health, it is crucial to be aware of the chemicals present in non-organic tampons and pads. Take a moment to investigate and gather information on feminine products, so you can make an informed and healthy decision regarding their usage. You can start by looking at the list of chemicals below.

Here is a brief list of chemicals found in your non-organic tampons and pads from shechangeseverything.com:

Parabens: Wellness researchers state some manufacturers employ parabens as preservatives in personal lubricants and food. With a chemical structure resembling estrogen, they possess the ability to imitate its effects within your body. Picture a potent hormone disrupter intricately linked to the development of breast cancer.

Perfume and fragrances (Phalates): According to wellness researchers, certain companies incorporate various additives into non-organic tampons and pads, including odor neutralizers and fragrances, artificial colors, polyester, adhesives, polyethylene (PET), polypropylene, and propylene glycol (PEG). These additions can be detected through their distinct scents, vibrant colors, and the texture they bring to the products. However, researchers have found a concerning link between these types of chemicals and hormone disruption, raising concerns about their potential impact on our health.

Plastic: Researchers claim a single non-organic sanitary pad contains the same amount of plastic as four crinkly plastic bags. These non-organic pads have the potential to introduce harmful plastic chemicals into your bloodstream, creating a concerning impact on your health.

Chlorine and other potentially toxic materials: Wellness researchers claim companies use chlorine and other potentially toxic materials for bleaching wood pulp and cotton (found in some feminine products). Unfortunately, this chemical reaction can give rise to harmful dioxin and disinfection-by-products (DBPs) like trihalomethane. Researchers have established a connection between dioxin exposure and the development of cancer.

3. Fix that… go organic

According to wellness researchers, going organic with your tampons and pads is a fantastic way to protect your vagina from sickness and shield it from absorbing harmful chemicals. The benefits of opting for organic tampons and pads are not just good, they’re great. How so, you ask?

The purity of organic materials ensures good hygiene and promotes a sense of cleanliness. According to researchers, organic cotton, with its soft and natural texture, lasts longer compared to regular cotton, ensuring a more enduring and reliable experience. As you use 100% organic pads, you’ll notice the absence of any synthetic or untested elements that are often found in non-organic pads. Imagine the relief as you put on an organic pad, free from any plastic that causes irritation and allergic reactions. Your skin can finally breathe, feeling refreshed and comfortable.

Now, let’s talk about the unpleasant reality of chlorine bleaching in non-organic tampons and pads. The intense scent of bleach is absent when you choose organic. This means you can say goodbye to the worry of exposing yourself to high levels of dioxins, which can lead to skin lesions and liver problems. So, the next time you shop for tampons and pads, make sure your organic pad proudly bears the label “unbleached.” Your body will thank you (Are Your Tampons & Pads Affecting Your Hormones? — SHE CHANGES EVERYTHING, 2020).
