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.
Natracare tampons are made from only certified organic 100% cotton and are the only fully certified organic cotton tampons available in the world today. 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 fertilizers used on traditional cotton.
The applicators have a rounded, petal-shaped end that makes inserting the tampon easier and more comfortable. The applicator is made from biodegradable card.

I switched to Natracare 3 months ago and i love it. It is a safe alternative for the big brands out there. They have the same features and provide the same level of comfort. I do sports a lot and sometimes water sports- they are now my favorite product. There are different levels of absorbency that correspond to different flows. I am happy to invest in safe hygienic options for my body.

I'm used to the plastic applicators in tampons, so when i first opened these up I was a little concerned. I have tried other applicators that were cardboard, and ended up hurting my delicate area. The applicator for these though slide in really easily, just like a plastic one. I was quite impressed actually. These are the first organic tampons I have tried, and i'm really satisfied with them. These are my new go-to brand, forsure! Love that there are no harmful chemicals. Will repurchase 100%.

two complaints: the wrapper is very loud/crunchy which makes it hard to be discrete, and the applicator takes some getting used to. however, I noticed my cramps were significantly less since I started using these tampons (because of no harsh chemicals). no spotting so they do the trick.

I've been using this brand for almost 10 years now. They work great for an organic product, I would never use any of the mainstream brands after researching what's in them. I do use a liner or thin pad with them though, as I find they leak occasionally. But would definitely prefer leaks over putting chemicals into my body.
