Organic super tampons with a smooth easy-glide cardboard applicator, which is completely biodegradable. Just twist to release and push. The Natracare applicator has a rounded tip for easy insertion. Most applicators are made from plastic or rigid bio-plastics. These commonly contain phthalates, which can be absorbed through the skin and cause hormone disruption. What’s more is they don’t biodegrade, contributing to worldwide plastic-pollution. Many rayon-blend tampons have a plastic veil to prevent fibre-loss, and they can also have added perfume or dyes which is totally unnecessary for managing your period. This is why Natracare only ever use cardboard and organic cotton. They never use GM cotton or unnecessary plastic, so they keep your vagina free from pesticide residues, plastic or toxic residuals or rayon.
