Do you know what’s in your feminine care products?
Are your feminine care products toxic? Could your feminine care products be making you sick? The answer is absolutely, YES!!
What you put in your body as food and what you put on your body as personal care products are very important! We discussed that in previous posts. But another super important thing to consider is how toxic are your feminine care products? Well ladies, listen up, because that’s our topic for today!
It takes all of about 26 seconds for us to absorb, anything, through our skin. But if you consider how thin the skin is around our sensitive girl parts, I’d imagine that absorption rate is much quicker. Sorry… I couldn’t find an exact answer. So with that being said, the products you use “down there” are crazy important to be healthy for you.
The scary parts!
Did you know that the traditional female care products such as pads and tampons, you know the “name brands”, they contain chlorine bleach, dioxins and BPA’s, just to name a few of the terrible toxins that they use in the actual product and production. It’s actually hard to find out what’s really in these products, because these big companies are allowed to have their ingredients “undisclosed”. How scary! Here’s my rule of thumb, if they’re not honest enough to tell me what’s in it, don’t buy from them! Our checkbooks talk!
These chemicals are known to cause abnormal tissue growth in the abdomen and reproductive organs, abnormal cell growth throughout the body, immune system suppression, and hormonal and endocrine system disruption. Wow! Sound like things you want to be dealing with? Not me! Want to balance your hormones naturally? I think changing out your feminine care products to non-toxic ones is a great first step!
Don’t worry, I’ve got a solution!
And lucky for us, we can still have the comfort of common products we’re used to, but without the yucky toxins causing us health problems.
Several brands offer healthy alternatives! Yay!! I’ve tried every brand available and I’ve settled on the Natracare brand. They seem to have great quality products and I love that they only use 100% Organic cotton and are 100% chemical free! And they fit me better than others I’ve tried. I love Natracare’s Organic Tampons, Organic Panty Liners, and Feminine Napkins.
Here’s some other ideas that might work for you as well! You might have to try a couple of brands to find the right fit for you. Seventh Generation Feminine Napkins. Seventh Generation Organic Tampons. And many women love the Diva Cup. Which, I have not yet personally tried, but I know a lot of women love it.
Don’t worry, just switch!
Ladies, the short of it all is that I’m here to share with you ways to be healthy. If you didn’t know before what I’ve shared with you today, today is the day to make the switch. Please, don’t use toxic feminine products any more. When I learned about all of the toxic chemicals in feminine products, I threw everything I had in the trash. Immediately! And I had a lot because I’m a Costco shopper. 😀 Don’t feel guilty because you have 5000 tampons, or pads. Don’t keep soaking up those toxins!! Throw them out and get some organic, healthy feminine products! Please!
