The technology has improved our social and personal life so much in the past hundred of years. We are the “gobblers” of all technological innovations not only in the kitchen space and electronics, but also in our personal hygiene area as well.
What I am looking in the personal hygiene items is their sustainable and clean processing properties. The majority of such items are bleached to acquire the whiteness of the product for marketing purposes.
But what I would love to have is not necessarily bleached and “drawn out” of nature with brutal force. Natural non-white surfaces in my personal hygiene items are OK with me. Does the color matter any way?
Why the way our personal hygiene items are processed matters?
We do want to avoid irritation and achieve more breath-ability with better absorbency of our tampons and liners and pads.
Besides, many more women are looking for the products that have quality sourcing and a positive environmental impact behind them. And yes, health effects on our bodies is one of the most crucial “why we are looking” for natural with exceptional quality and standards personal care products.
Besides these “minor” conveniences, there are all kinds of medical conditions, like Vaginitis, Endo among many, that simply require a woman to use all-natural, chemical-free surfaces in her tampons and pads. Endometriosis is one of those situations when the body does so much better with pads and tampons, that are made of organic cotton that are free of any chemical touch.
FYI: The U. S. government doesn’t require health studies or pre-launch testing of products in the Personal Care Category.
So, how does an average consumer know that each brand labeled “natural” on its packaging and was allowed to sell their products to the mass consumer is truly NATURAL, i.e., does use ingredients and processes that maintain the quality of the product and environment?
The answer to this question is two-fold as a minimum.
First, research the brand on your own.
Second, trust the sources that sell “all-natural” brands from their shelves and the brands themselves.
Usually, it is a word-of-mouth that gets us to the quality products that we seek.
Having talked to several women about what the difference it makes to use natural brand of personal hygiene items vs. conventional, here what I got from them. Please keep in mind that we are talking about Personal Hygiene Products like pads, tampons, facial cotton balls and much more of this kinds of products.
“I do go for something that has natural, unbleached cotton. I found out that I needed to use unscented pads without any exception. I tried different brands with a great smell to their product, but with each use, I would get some irritation. It sucks to be so sensitive to such personal items like tampons and pads. But at least I figured out what I need to do and where my skin irritation comes from.”
“I do care what I put close to my skin and body. I choose to buy those natural brands that care about women’s health in a sustainable and more intimate way. I mean they do get the severity of some skin conditions and medical conditions in women. And these companies create something eco friendly for those of us who cannot use conventional brands for our periods or other hygiene needs.”
“I am transferring my life into a greener zone little-by-little. And one of the areas I chose to start with is my personal hygiene items like tampons and pads. It is not only better for my personal health, it’s better and more sustainable for our environment at large.”
What are you using for your daily and monthly personal hygiene needs? What are those brands and products that boast of nothing but organic and sustainable character in them?
I do know a few brands that give it a priority to transfer women’s personal hygiene industry onto green, organic and non-toxic way. Here’s one of them.
I haven’t heard of this brand until recently. Why MAXIM?
What’s In MAXIM For A User Like You And Me?
Made with Organic and Natural Cotton
Other brands substitute cotton in their products by some other cotton-like materials.
Chlorine and Dioxin Free
These two are carcinogens. Dioxin is one of the most toxic man-made chemicals. For years, EPA has withheld a study about dioxin to protect big industries that use it. FYI, dioxin can accumulate with time, and that’s the over-time detrimental exposure to small dozes of it that causes health issues. Many industries use these two chemicals for bleaching their products, and personal hygiene products are some of them.
MAXIM products do not contain any plastic or synthetic fibers. Only cotton provides a truly breathable experience when your skin really “breathes” with MAXIM products against your body.
Wood Fluff Pulp Free
Wanna be sustainable? Hey, MAXIM saves trees, as there are no ingredients that come from any forest on earth to make their super natural tampons and pads.
If you really want to avoid even the slightest chance of allergies and skin irritation when using personal hygiene products, try MAXIM.
Eco- and User-Friendly
MAXIM products are biodegradable. They’re working on making their packaging compostable as well.
Gynecologits Tested and Consumer Recommended
Yes, I tried every single product by MAXIM. They are cool. They are invisible. They are effective. All of their products are first-class in quality, using unbleached cotton to create super absorbable and almost invisible to the touch products.
