Best Non Toxic Period Products

Share

About 43 million women in the United States use tampons. A woman who uses tampons monthly will buy more than 11,000 in her lifetime.

Therefore, I have put together a list of the best non toxic period products below, but first – let’s go over some things shall we?

Did you know that tampons and sanitary pad manufacturers aren’t required to disclose the ingredients the use because feminine hygiene products are considered “medical devices.”?

In fact , many if not most of today’s feminine hygiene products like tampons which are in contact with some of our most sensitive and absorbent tissue in our bodies, may contain traces of dioxin from bleach, pesticide residues from conventional, non-organic cotton (75% of cotton in the US is potentially genetically modified!) , and my personal favorite – the mystery “fragrance” ingredients. 

Dioxins are cancer-causing agents and can disrupt the hormone system. They have also been linked to endometriosis and can affect the body even at very low levels. 

As for Pesticides – the World Health Organization has classified many cotton pesticides as “extremely or highly hazardous.” and have been linked to infertility, neurological dysfunction and developmental defects. 

Fragrance is one of the worst in our beauty and skincare products, but also in our feminine hygiene products as well. Within the word “fragrance” there are actually dozens of chemical ingredients. Although the companies do not need to disclose the actual ingredients because the formulas are considered trade secrets.

Well, let me enlighten you – there are SO many non toxic period products out there to choose from! Here are some my favorite brands that I’ve used and trust (all linked to Amazon):
