Are Organic Cotton Period Products Really Better?
Have you ever seen organic cotton period products on the shelf at the store next to traditional brands and thought to yourself are the organic ones really better? The average woman will have 456 periods in her lifetime. The vagina is the most absorbent area on the body. Even more absorbent than the mouth and stomach. If you swallowed a pill only about 15% of the medication is absorbed. If you inserted that same pill into your vaginal about 80% of the medication is absorbed. Whatever is placed near or inside the vagina is important to consider. Traditional feminine care brands use toxic cancer-causing chemicals such as Dioxin, Chlorine, BPA, and Synthetic fibers. Even some newer brands that advertise themselves as Organic use Synthetic fibers in the core of the pad. Blesseth Ova Pads and Liners are made with 100% Organic Cotton top-sheet and core, food grade adhesive and plant-based bioplastic.
Using Organic Cotton helps everyone and everything. With Organic Cotton Farming no pesticides, herbicides, or insecticides are ever used. This protects our waterways, surrounding soil, insect population, and the health of our actual farmers. In addition using Organic Cotton Pads decrease plastic pollution and save landfill space. So you tell me are Organic Cotton period products better than Non Organic Cotton brands?
