HYGIENE FOR CARE
THE REUSABLE SANITARY NAPKIN
A pad that’s good for your body
Our cloth pads are made of cotton & promote well being through the menstrual cycle, as well as being affordable & beautiful too.
WHY CLOTH PADS
Disposable tampons carry a risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). TSS is caused by usually harmless bacteria found on our skin or in parts of our bodies. If the bacteria enters the bloodstream through a cut or tear, they release a toxin. Tampons may create a more ideal opportunity for the growth of these ￼bacteria, and can dry out the vaginal canal by absorbing its natural moisture, which can lead to minute tears that may increase the chance of TSS. Toxic Shock Syndrome is real and can be fatal. Learn more about the symptoms of TSS here.
While pads have never been linked to TSS, conventional disposable pads contain all kinds of chemicals -- and manufacturers are not required to list these ingredients on their packaging! These ingredients range from wood pulp and adhesives to artificial fragrance and chemical gels. Not the type of stuff you want next to one of the most sensitive parts of your body!
Using cloth pads can prevent thousands of tons of non-biodegradable sanitary waste around the world each month – it takes 500-800 years to decompose a disposable! Using something once is not enough! Our society has gone from relying on high quality reusable products to cheap disposables. When you choose to reuse anything from dishes to towels, youʼre helping make a cultural shift that values quality over wastefulness.
Twelve thousand disposables add up! While it seems like a small monthly expense, over your lifetime youʼll be spending thousands of rupees on pads and tampons that just end up in the trash. Although cloth pads are an initial investment, they pay off over time: many customers report saving over 10,000 in just a few years.
I like to use the analogy of ceramic dishes. Buying paper plates would certainly seem cheaper, but everyone agrees that investing in dishes youʼll use for years is the smarter choice! Plus, youʼll get greater enjoyment from your nice dishes. Cloth pads are exactly the same.
THE BOTTOM LINE
Deciding what kind of menstrual protection to use is a personal choice. Think about the products you use now and why. Was it because your mother or sister used them? Or because they were the first ones you tried? Most importantly, are they working for you? Choosing your form of protection based on what you value is an important part of self-care. We often ignore our own health -- to our detriment! Making conscious decisions about the way we treat our bodies is a powerful message to our children, friends, family, and ourselves.
