Eco-friendly and Vegan Feminine Hygiene Brands!
Most women have used a tampon at some point, but do we know what is actually in them + what they are doing to our bodies?
Many traditional tampons are made from pesticide-ridden cotton and a synthetic chemically treated wood pulp called rayon. Other plastics and additives are used to increase absorbency. Tampon manufacturers often don't tell us what materials are going into our bodies, which is so unfortunate.
Just like with our beauty products, we demand transparency! Cruelty-free and clean ingredient feminine hygiene products are a must!
Here are some vegan and cruelty-free tampon brands:
So this isn't a tampon brand but some people prefer a menstrual cup and we wanted to bring attention to it! The Diva Cup is a medical grade silicon cup that is wearable up to 12 hours. Latex, BPA, plastic, dye, and chemical free.
Have a plastic free period! Natracare features biodegradable menstrual products that are chlorine, dye and pesticide free. They use only 100% organic cotton too!
Emerita puts the planet first with their eco-friendly manufacturing process. Their products are never tested on animals and are all vegan except for the OH Warming lubricant which contains honey and the Hair Removal Pre-waxed strips that contain beeswax.
Be kind to your body and the earth!
