Many women are unaware that rayon and rayon-cotton blends are widely used in the manufacture of tampons. Rayon is commonly chlorine-bleached, and is a highly absorbent fibre which rapidly absorbs menstrual blood but at the same time can also dry out the natural protective mucous lining of the vagina.
Dioxin, a toxic carcinogen, is a by-product of all chlorine bleaching methods and is also found throughout the environment in varying levels as a by-product of pesticide spraying and pollution from incinerators. Dioxin has been found to collect in the fatty tissues of animals, including humans and should, therefore, be a real concern for women. Published scientific reports have shown that evidence is growing that even low levels of dioxins may be linked to cancer, endometriosis, low sperm counts and immune system suppression. Considering a woman may use as many as 11,000 tampons in her lifetime, she may be subjecting herself to additional dioxin exposure.
Natracare tampons are all made from only certified organic 100% cotton and were the world's first fully certified organic cotton tampons. They are non-chlorine bleached and women can be reassured that they do not contain synthetic materials, such as rayon, or chemical additives such as binders or surfactants. Certified organic cotton removes the risk of direct exposure to residues from chemical pesticides and fertilisers used on traditional cotton.
100% organic cotton • non-chlorine bleached • rayon-free • certified organic
Available in regular, super and super plus absorbencies.
Natracare tampons were developed as a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine bleaching, the extensive use of pesticide spraying on conventionally grown cotton,
and the use of rayon and other synthetics in tampons.

polypropylene or polyacrylate super absorbents, all of which can irritate the skin.
Women can be reasured that Natracare Ultra pads do not contain synthetic materials, chemical additives such as binders or surfactants, fragrances or dyes and because of the organic and natural materials used, are over 95% biodegradable and compostable. The absorbent core of the pad is made from Forest Stewardship Council certified pulp (FSC) and the cover that is next to your skin is certified organic 100% cotton. The pads are individually wrapped in biodegradable purse packs.

The absorbent core absorbs the menstrual fluid and locks it away so that the soft organic cotton cover allows your skin to breath whilst at the same time keeping you dry.
