Natracare Tampons - Without Applicator

Price: £3.06

  • Regular - Pack Of 20 
  • Super - Pack Of 20 (+£0.08)

Tampons without applicator from Natracare that is made from a rolled wadding of 100% organic Cotton. As the cotton gently absorbs the menstrual flow, the tampon expands widthways. Instead of having an applicator, you insert this tampon using your longest finger which tucks into the flared end of the tampon to allow the tampon to be pushed into place. Choosing an applicator or non-applicator tampon is generally a matter of personal preference.

Approximately 20% of women naturally have a retroverted uterus, meaning uterus tilts backwards towards the spine instead of forwards. This can cause pain during insertion of an inflexible applicator. The Natracare non-applicator tampon can be gently eased into the correct position using the longer index finger, making it more comfortable. The organic cotton withdrawal cord allows for easy removal of the tampon after use.

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.
