Why Knowing Exactly What Ingredients Are in My Tampons Gives Me So Much Peace of Mind

So you might be wondering why I care so much about this. After all, it’s just cotton, right? Wrong! In fact, we should think about organic cotton in the same kind of way we think about natural beauty products or organically grown produce — meaning, understanding where the ingredients all originated and how they came to be on your face or on your plate. Knowledge is power, amirite? Plus, there are so many things to be anxious about in life, right now especially, so knowing that my tampons came to me through a process that I can see and understand is just one way I can alleviate some stress.

So let’s get into it! Why organic cotton, specifically? Organic cotton is grown using natural, non-genetically-modified seeds, and the soil is fertilized using organic fertilizer. There is also attention paid to the health of the soil; Tampax Pure suppliers use beneficial insects, composting, and crop rotation to maintain a healthy balance in the organic matter in the soil. Then, the organic cotton is harvested after the first frost to allow for natural defoliation (i.e. removing the leaves of the plant), eliminating the need to do it chemically.
