Organyc 100% organic sanitary care

ORGANYC : Organic Sanitary Care

Organyc are a company that produce Organic, Non Bleached sanitary products. They inspired me to change from conventional sanitary products to their brand several months ago.

Want to know why I made the change?

I discovered that conventional sanitary pads are made up of mostly petroleum derived plastic materials such as polyethylene (the same material used in plastic bags - can you believe that!), polypropylene, a synthetic cloth-like material and dyes. Conventional tampons are made from chlorine bleached and aggressively absorbent rayon, perhaps blended with a small amount of conventionally grown cotton. They are loosely packed in polypropylene to try to stop the rayon fibres shedding during use. There is also the possibility that they could contain artificial dyes, lubricants and fragrances.

Chlorine bleaching creates a by product called dioxin which has extremely harmful effects on theenvironment and has been linked to ill health. Dioxin is a known carcinogen and will leave detectable residuals in any product that has been bleached with any type of chlorine bleach.
Intimate irritation is a sensitivity to synthetic materials resulting in discomfort that is often attributed to thrush - disturbingly, it is actually a form of dermatitis and in some cases women can develop allergic reactions to the sanitary protection they are using.

Organic 100% cotton tampons and towels are just as absorbent as conventional ones but don't have all the harmful chemicals. We therefore benefit from excellent performance but without being exposed to any chemical by-products
Choosing organic and natural sanitary products guarantees that we are reducing our exposure to man-made materials and chemicals.

Why don't you make the change too?
