Natracare's Organic & Natural Tampons And Pads - Review


Healthier By Nature!

Before I 'fell in love' with my Mooncup, I purchased a few products from Natracare. Natracare create wipes, tampons, pads and liners in so many different sizes and shapes, which are all organic and natural. Their products contain no chlorine bleaches, no Rayon, they're perfume free, plastic free, over 90% biodegradable and are also compostable when under the correct conditions, how cool is that! 

I found the regular applicator tampons comfortable and easy to use. The applicator is totally chlorine-free with biodegradable cardboard and the tampons are made from 100% organic cotton, as well as being free from synthetic materials, chemical additives and bleach. I would prefer a thicker string on these tampons though, so I probably wouldn't use these on a heavier day. Unlike other branded tampons the packaging of these are really cute and girly! 

The mini panty liners are made with certified organic cotton and totally chlorine-free, plant cellulose and are also plastic free. These liners look and feel thick but are quite narrow in shape. I found that when using these liners they seemed to bunch up quite a bit and came apart easily, but saying that they were still quite absorbent. I'm thinking of giving the curved liners a go, to see if that helps with the shaping and bunching of the mini liners. These mini liners are also available in a normal range which come individually wrapped unlike the ones I bought. 

And lastly the the ultra regular pads with wings. These pads are individually wrapped and are made with certified organic cotton and renewable and sustainable plant cellulose. They're plastic free and chlorine free just like all of the other products. Even though I chose the regular size for these pads they seem to be very very thin! I think if I buy these again I'm going to go for the super size with wings just for the extra padding. 

Overall my favourite product so far from Natracare has to be the regular applicator tampons!
I would also like to try out the organic baby wipes and the organic intimate wipes that Natracare also produce.
