Free from harmful chemicals
I recently learned that most tampons contain a cocktail of chemicals. Not only does cotton get sprayed with toxic pesticides during the growing process, but product manufacturers use chlorine bleach, rayon and polypropylene in the tampons. Take a look at your tampon box and see if you can read the ingredients. Ahha! They don't include them on the pack. In my search for organic tampons I came across one brand, TOM Organic, and I'm mighty impressed. Their tampons ONLY contain certified organic cotton, are hypoallergenic and they're 100 per cent ...biodegradable which is an added bonus. I've noticed that my periods are now shorter (they were 8 days, thanks chemicals!) and my usual discomfort has completely vanished. All my other brand tampons have now been thrown out. I've promised myself I will only use certified organic tampons from now. Ladies, I urge you to do your own research and be mindful of what you're putting into your body.
