Sanitary Protection

Natracare offers considerate feminine hygiene products such as panty liners and sanitary products. Natracare makes their products from renewable, biodegradable, compostable and even recycled materials sometimes. Organic cotton, wood pulp and plant-based bioplastics are all used. Compared to conventional products (usually 90% plastic for instance), buying Natracare helps you reduce plastic production and pollution. This therefore helps to reduce the release of toxic chemicals into the atmosphere that takes place during plastic manufacture.

Try opting for Bloom & Nora, a high quality, reusable sanitary pad bringing with it peace of mind. As it is packaged in its own waterproof storage it’s easy to take out and about. These come in either cotton or bamboo. Also in a range of 4 sizes, so you can find the ideal reusable solution.
