The average woman uses roughly 16,800 tampons throughout her lifetime, each of which is known to contain dioxins, synthetic (plastic) fibers, and petrochemical additives. Women can now go green with these all natural, reusable hemp tampons, each made from soft hemp yarn.
The issues of safe feminine hygiene product options are rarely discussed, but it’s an important topic for roughly one-third of the human population.
The stereotypical “clean” white tampons we see in television commercials have been found to contain plasticizing chemicals like BPA and BPS. These chemicals are known to disrupt embryonic development and are directly linked to heart disease and cancer.
Toxins that come into constant contact with your skin will likely end up soaked into your bloodstream, then distributed throughout your entire body.
The skin in and around the vaginal area is particularly susceptible to absorption, due to how thin and delicate those areas are.
If tampons include fragrance or other odor-neutralizing substances, the risk presence of dangerous chemicals are much higher. Disturbingly, companies that produce these products are no longer required to disclose the presence of such harmful chemicals.
As an alternative, more women are beginning to see the value of reusable hemp tampons and sanitary pads. Hemp and cotton fibers offer durability due hemp fiber’s strength, and superior absorption and softness from cotton.
Since these tampons are made with natural hemp and cotton fibers, they don’t contain any of the dangerous chemicals and plastics found in disposable brands.
While T.S.S. (Toxic Shock Syndrome) is still a risk with reusable hemp tampons, users benefit from a product that won’t potentially disrupt their organs or hormones.
For the health-conscious consumer out there, exposing their vagina to the risk of potentially deadly chemicals from using conventional tampons may be too great.
As a result, more women are turning to natural hemp products for safe, sustainable solutions to personal health and hygiene.
