Organic is the new mantra ruling the food industry now. The evils of GMO and non-organic foods are the topic of discussion in every ‘wellness’ article and blog post. The record sales of $48 billion organic food in 2016 in the US itself is the proof of people’s obsession with the non-GMO products. However, talking about organic tampons may be taking our health consciousness a bit too far. Anyhow, are there any such tampons available on the market? If so, how are they better than the regular ones currently available?
The regular tampons available in the market are made using cotton, and a substance called rayon, that comes from wood pulp. Rayon carries traces of a chemical called dioxin, which is a byproduct of the purification of wood pulp using chlorine gas. Dioxins irritate sensitive skin and can cause many diseases, even cancer. Non-organic cotton also contains a pesticide called glyphosate, which is another irritant to sensitive skin. All these, when combined with the fragrance of the tampons, will cause what is known as Toxic Shock Syndrome(TSS). TSS can be fatal if left untreated and can lead to many reproductive problems and immunity disorders.
These are the safest option for women who are concerned about the issues above. These tampons are a little pricey but worth every penny. They are safe and never cause TSS. They are the ideal choice for the busy women who work long hours and need continuous protection.
