Not all organic tampons
are created equally

So you can be kinder to your body without compromising on comfort & leak protection.

Why Organic?
Some scientists have suggested that exposure to small of amounts of pesticide traces & other toxins found in conventional tampons can have a cumulative effect over time - after all, the vagina is one of the most absorbant parts of the body. And yet there is little if any meaningful research on the long-term effects for regular tampon users.

YOPPIE TAMPONS MANY MAINSTREAM TAMPONS

100% organic cotton core

Cotton is less likely to shed fibres in the body

100% organic cotton cord

Securely stitched into the core - avoiding the glues used in some conventional tampons

No chlorine bleaching 

Our organic cotton is purified without chlorine, to avoid unnecessary exposure to dioxins which, even at low levels, have been linked to reproductive & hormone disruption

Chemically grown cotton

Non-organic cotton farming is chemical-intensive, accounting for 16% of global insecticide use. In 2018 the French agency (ANSES) found traces of banned pesticides in major European tampon brands.

Viscose & other synthetics

Synthetic fabrics like viscose rayon are more likely to shed fibres in the body & have been linked to cases of TSS

Chemical additives

Research has shown that fragrances or 'odour-neutralisers' in tampons can expose the user to endocrine-disruptors such as Phthalates

Chlorine bleaching

Chlorine dioxide bleaching leaves traces of dioxins - classed by the W.H.O as a dangerous substance - which can be absorbed through the vagina walls but are not easily expelled by the body 

Glue

In some cases, tampon cords are attached with adhesives.
