I’m all for natural products. Even though my housemates boyfriend said my last post about an all natural deodorant was probably the most boring post I’ve ever wrote. (?°?°)?? ???
I think the thing that’s most frustrating is that it’s so hard to find products like this in the supermarket. I’ve looked and it’s always just your standard brands. I’d happily pay a bit extra for a natural product, rather than use a cheaper one with chemicals.
Soooooo yes let’s get back on topic.
Veeda is a brand that sells tampons, pads and liners that are all 100% natural and they sent me a few things from their range.
Veeda tampons are actually the only hypoallergenic, 100% cotton tampons on the market.
Your average tampon from well-known brands tend to be made from cotton that has been bleached or from synthetic products. They can contain dioxins, pesticide and herbicide residues as well as synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances and dye.
Scary stuff, right? I mean, who likes the idea of putting pesticides in their vagina. I know I don’t. Do not put them there. That’s bad.
Because Veeda products don’t contain any chemicals, synthetics or dyes, they reduce the risk of toxic sock
There have been studies that have also shown potential links to tampons that contain dioxins and synthetics to cancer. Which I’m sure isn’t surprising because basically just being alive causes cancer according the Google.
Veeda cost about the same as branded tampons, I guess the only thing is that they tend to be on offer often in the supermarkets but you might be paying a bit more overall. But can you really put a price on a happy penny? Or fanny, or vagina, or cooter, or muff or beaver or front bum or whatever you call your difference 😀
