Many women have not stopped to think what their tampons and sanitary pads are made from. In fact, most tampons are made from a mix of rayon, polyester and non-organic cotton. The blend makes for one toxic cocktail.
Rayon is a fibre that is made from cellulose that is chemically converted from wood pulp. Not only is the production of this material dangerous, but wearing it can also be unhealthy. Rayon can dry out the protective mucous of the vagina.
Most bright white tampons are chlorine-bleached and likely contain harmful, carcinogenic dioxin residue in their fibres which can then enter the vaginal canal. These fibres can also break off and harbour bacteria which can lead to Toxic Shock Syndrome.
Our vaginas are like sponges, lined with permeable mucous membranes that protect our bodies from bacteria but that can easily absorb chemicals. Choosing organic tampons made of cotton grown without pesticides, is the best way to protect your vagina.
