Why natural pads
Women today are conscious of the need to restrict their contact with
synthetic materials and unnecessary chemicals and additives. They are
becoming more aware that most of the widely available sanitary pads sold
today, contain a blend of chlorine-bleached pulp, polypropylene,
polyacrylates and plastic.
For each monthly cycle, it makes sense to choose a pad that is made from
natural materials. Many gynaecologists have advised women with sensitive
skin to use natracare pads to reduce their contact with chlorine bleached
materials, and also products containing synthetics, latex and super
absorbents made from petrochemicals. Every year, billions of plastic laden
pads are disposed of, and generally they end up in landfill sites to sit
unaltered for hundreds of years. Every year, in Britain alone, we would have
to dig a hole three hundred feet deep and three hundred feet wide to bury
the sanitary pads that are thrown away.
Natracare chemical free pads are high quality products made from only
pure and natural materials that are made from plant cellulose. They are not
chlorine bleached and are free of rayon, plastics and other similar
synthetic materials that have a negative impact on our environment. They are
comfortable and reliable and available in different absorbencies and styles.
The regular pad is narrower towards the middle of the pad so that it fits
the contours of the body more readily, whilst the Slender and Super pads are
the same width all along the pad’s length for a more traditional fit. The
Ultra with wings is a slim pad with the added protection of wings. They are
individually wrapped so that they can be kept discretely in your bag.
