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 looove the concept of a natural tampons... not having any chemicals in my body is great. However, these are not absorbent enough... even the "super". I have to change them often as well as wear a panty liner or there is leakage in little time. The cardboard applicator also gets stuck. I have to insert it with both hands which is really awkward. If Natracare can improve the absorbency level and prevent the cardboard applicator from getting stuck every time, then I'm all in. I just bought super Tampax tampons today. Hope this helps. Cheers!

I never used a cardboard applicator before trying these, but I was very pleasantly surprised that it was just as easy to use and as comfortable as a plastic applicator. The value here is incredible! I wish I had bought organic tampons years ago! Now I will have to stock up in regular too :)

Great product. A bit hard to insert at times, make sure the tampon can smoothly slide out of the applicator (test it before attempting to insert). Do this, you will avoid accidentally crushing the applicator or accidentally pulling the applicator out too early! Make sure your hands are clean if you do this. I notice a lighter flow when I use these. I order extra boxes all the time, just so I won't run out (thanks for keeping them in-stock Well.ca!). I never want to use traditional brands again. :)

I never used organic before because of the price. Always wondered how they could possibly be better . For the first time in my menstruating "career" , I wasn't itchy during my period!!! I just figured it was one of those things you put up with. NO MORE!!! obviously the chemicals used in conventional products DO have effects on you "down there" . I will not go back to using Tampax!! I have always used a cardboard applicator & these are MUCH more comfortable for being cardboard (rounded end) Yay for no chemicals!!!
