Highlights
Natracare 100% Certified Organic Cotton Tampons - with and without applicators - in Regular, Super and Super Plus absorbency: for normal to heavy periods.
 
Natracare tampons were developed as a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine bleaching, the extensive use of pesticide spraying on conventionally grown cotton, and the use of rayon and other synthetics in tampons.
 
Many women are unaware that rayon and rayon-cotton blends are widely used in the manufacture of tampons. Rayon is commonly chlorine-bleached, and is a highly absorbent fibre. Dioxin, a toxic carcinogen, is a by-product of all chlorine bleaching methods and is also found throughout the environment in varying levels as a by-product of pesticide spraying and pollution from incinerators. Dioxin has been found to collect in the fatty tissues of animals, including humans and should, therefore, be a real concern for women. Published scientific reports have shown that evidence is growing that even low levels of dioxins may be linked to cancer, endometriosis, low sperm counts and immune system suppression. Considering a woman may use as many as 11,000 tampons in her lifetime, she may be subjecting herself to additional dioxin exposure.
 
Natracare tampons are made from only certified organic 100% cotton and are the only fully certified organic cotton tampons available in the world today. They are non-chlorine bleached and women can be reassured that they do not contain synthetic materials, such as rayon, or chemical additives such as binders or surfactants. Certified organic cotton removes the risk of direct exposure to residues from chemical pesticides and fertilisers used on traditional cotton.

***Please note that due to exclusive distribution arrangements, we are currently unable to send NatraCare products to South Korea and apologise for any inconvenience.

Good product for the fact that it's all natural, but the absorbance is not what the regular brands offer - one has to choose what is more important, the 'no nasties' or better performance. I choose no nasties!

Disappointed

Disappointed ! Since I have heavy periods I bought the Super Plus after being impressed by another super plus brand o/seas. Sadly the organic cotton tampons were similar to Super regular tampons in their performance (ie last me 3 hrs v 4+). I do appreciate the fact that they are organic but think the grading (ie super vs super +) of them not accurate.

It works well. It's worth paying a bit extra for that peace of mind, knowing that it's not chlorine-bleached.

Excellent product. No irritation that you would normally experience with other brands that don't consider how harshly cotton is treated before use. Regular brands have time and again proven how unhealthy they are. Happy to pay more for peace of mind.
