There's literally no thought put into it when we reach under the sink to grab a pad during that "trying" time of the month. After all, it's just a bunch of layered paper right? Wrong! Let's take a deeper look at what exactly is in the "sanitary" feminine napkins you've been using your entire adult female life.
As reported by 'WomensVoices.Org' - In August 2014 Women’s Voices for the Earth performed a scientific testing of four types of Always menstrual pads, manufactured by Procter & Gamble for dangerous chemicals and compounds. Guess what they found?
The results of the testing exposed that both scented and unscented Always pads contain and release toxic chemicals. These include chemicals identified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services National Toxicology Program [As well as a handful of other Environmental Protection Agencies] as carcinogens, and reproductive and developmental toxins.
None of these chemicals are disclosed on the product by the manufacturer.
Luckily for us, we live in a world in which we have options and access to safer, more natural alternatives. Isis & Osiris Wellness Spa recommends making the switch from conventional pads to using natural sanitary pads. Our store only sells Reign (previously known as Jewel) and Cherish Premium Sanitary Napkins.
Reign Premium Sanitary Napkins are infused with Nobel Prize Winning material "Graphene". The Graphene infused strip may provide various health benefits that may improve micro-circulation, may promote cell activity and may also help support a healthy metabolism. In addition, may help inhibit harmful bacteria growth, allowing females to feel comfortable and most of all dry!
Our featured Cherish Premium Sanitary Napkins include a super-absorbent and safe polymer that is up to 10 times more absorbent than conventional pads. The unique negative ion strip has many proven health benefits including possibly reducing pain and inflammation and may help to neutralize unwanted odors.
