Women today are conscious of the need to restrict their contact with synthetic materials and unnecessary chemicals and additives. They are becoming more aware that most of the widely available sanitary pads sold today, contain a blend of chlorine-bleached pulp, polypropylene, polyacrylates and plastic.
For each monthly cycle, it makes sense to choose a pad that is made from natural materials. Many gynaecologists have advised women with sensitive skin to use natracare pads to reduce their contact with chlorine bleached materials, and also products containing synthetics, latex and super absorbents made from petrochemicals. Every year, billions of plastic laden pads are disposed of, and generally they end up in landfill sites to sit unaltered for hundreds of years. Every year, in Britain alone, we would have to dig a hole three hundred feet deep and three hundred feet wide to bury the sanitary pads that are thrown away.
Natracare chemical free pads are high quality products made from only pure and natural materials that are made from plant cellulose. They are not chlorine bleached and are free of rayon, plastics and other similar synthetic materials that have a negative impact on our environment. They are comfortable and reliable and available in different absorbencies and styles. The regular pad is narrower towards the middle of the pad so that it fits the contours of the body more readily, whilst the Slender and Super pads are the same width all along the pad’s length for a more traditional fit. The Ultra with wings is a slim pad with the added protection of wings. They are individually wrapped so that they can be kept discretely in your bag.

I am primarily a tampon user only, with just a light pad as back-up. However, I use these at night (again as a back-up) and so far, they seem pretty good. They do a decent job with absorbency and I really love how earth-friendly they are. The only downside is the back is very long and tends to twist and bunch over night. Nothing drastic but if there was an emergency overnight, I'm not sure they'd hold up all that well. However I did use them while hiking and they stayed nicely in place!

Very comfortable to wear due to cotton, but it doesn't absorb & keep liquid at bay during times of heavy periods. Best used at start or end of period when flow is lighter, otherwise it can get rather messy because liquid just sits on top of the pad and goes everywhere. Other down side is the expensive price, but when used on less heavy days, I don't even use up one box, just less than what's inside a single box.
