Natracare use a smooth, easy glide cardboard applicator to help with the insertion of the tampon. The material used to make this biodegradable applicator tube is completely Chlorine-free. The organic Cotton wadding of the Natracare applicator tampon is designed to expand lengthways, elongating as the menstrual flow is gently absorbed. The organic Cotton withdrawal cord allows for easy removal the tampon after use.

Applicator tubes of most brands are usually made from plastic. One of the chemical groups found in plastic are Phthalates, which are easily absorbed through the skin. Disposal of these plastic products contributes to the fast growing global marine pollution problem.

Most brands of tampons are made from a mix of Rayon and non-organic Cotton, and are usually Chlorine-bleached. Some tampons are even wrapped in plastic, or dyed a different colour. Rayon is a highly absorbent fibre which rapidly absorbs menstrual blood. However, it can also dry out the natural protective mucous lining of the vagina at the sametime.

Natracare believe that women should not be exposed to Pesticide residues, Phthalates, Azo-dyes and Dioxins, especially in such a sensitive and absorptive area of the body. Natracare use only 100% organic Cotton and nothing else, so you can be confident you know exactly what you are putting into your body.
