The Eco-Friendly Odyssey: The Journey of an Organic Sanitary Napkin
Natural & organic products are all the craze right now. But, how exactly are they made? How different are they really, from the conventional products that are known to be harmful? Let’s embark on the enlightening journey of an organic sanitary napkin and discover the steps involved in creating this natural, nurturing, and planet-friendly menstrual companion.
- Sourcing Organic Materials
The journey begins with the careful selection of organic materials. These pads are often made from responsibly sourced organic cotton, grown without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilisers. The decision to go organic ensures that no harmful chemicals come into contact with a woman’s delicate skin, reducing the risk of irritation or allergic reactions.
- Gentle Processing
The organic cotton is then processed with a focus on preserving its natural integrity. Gentle methods such as oxygen-based whitening and unbleached fibres prevent unnecessary chemical exposure and maintain the purity of the material. These processes replace the otherwise harmful chemical bleaching which is not only bad because of the emissions, but also bad because it leaves behind allergy causing residues.
- Biodegradable Design
Eco-conscious manufacturers prioritise the environment throughout the production process. Organic sanitary napkins are designed to be biodegradable, meaning they break down naturally over time, reducing the burden on landfills and contributing to a greener planet. All the components used ensure that the product is 100% biodegradable.
- Comfort and Absorbency
Organic pads are thoughtfully engineered to provide the utmost comfort and efficient absorbency. Innovative designs and advanced technology ensure that these pads are leak-proof, providing women with peace of mind during their period.
- Transparent Labelling
To empower women with knowledge and choice, organic sanitary napkins come with transparent labelling. Detailed information about the materials used and any certifications obtained is readily available to help consumers make informed decisions.
- A Woman-Centric Approach
The journey of an organic sanitary napkin is driven by a woman-centric approach. We take the time to understand women’s needs and concerns, crafting and providing products that align with her values and preferences.
