You might be surprised to learn that some period products like tampons or pads can contain bleach, chlorine and dyes as well as plastics. In order to protect the natural pH of your vagina, look for organic period products like the Flo Organic Eco-Applicator Tampons. They’re made with 100% organic, biodegradable cotton and are free from chlorine bleach, irritating synthetic fibres, dyes, fragrances or allergens. They’re also better for the environment.
If you’re using a menstrual cup or disc, look for ones made from super safe, medical grade TPE, like the Hello Cup Menstrual Cup to keep your vagina safe and in balance.
