Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 February 2021

Verified Purchase

I just received these liners and they are super thin and light, with great packaging and you can tell they are high quality. I am very impressed. You can’t feel wearing them and they are also a compact size. Highly recommend and likely to buy again. i think the price is reasonable as well given the quality of the product.

Plastic free periods !

Soft & Comfortable

During periods your body is exposed to external materials making it very sensitive. Plastfree pads have been designed using soft cotton top sheet and anti-bacterial anion strip, to give you a little comfort during your periods.

Eco Friendly

Polymer based pads take up to 500-800 years to disintegrate in landfills whereas Our pads would biodegrade in 2 years in warm & humid condition. We have also thought about cotton disposable wrappers instead of usual plastic ones!

Natural Products

The pads are certified to be unscented & chemical-free for a safe use by the industry leaders. Plastfree Sanitary Pads are third party tested for manufacturing, performance & anti-bacterial by FDA, SGS & MSL. Hypoallergenic materials are used to produce the pads to ensure that no allergic reactions occur from their use.

Extra Absorbent

Our pads are made using 3 layers of the super absorbent core, which ensures the best absorption up to 5 times more than conventional pads.

Is Plastfree made of Natural products?

Yes, all of the Plastfree products are hypoallergenic, free from fragrance, chemicals and are made from sustainable materials only.

How good is Plastfree compared with other similar ones?

Our products are kinder to your skin and absorbs 5 times more than the other brands. We have not only thought about the pad top layer using the best organic cotton, we have introduced a new leak proof 'biodegradable bottom layer' instead of plastic PE layer as given by others. We have also thought about 'disposal' as being an important part of the period waste. So wrapping the pad in cotton covers instead of plastic covers and no stickers certainly gives way to spread the message of being kinder to our planet and promoting good disposal habits. Our box is also 100% recyclable using paper instead of the nasty plastic as given by the giant brands. All these changes have made the product eco friendly and cetainly the right choice for you!

Are they good for heavy flow?

Plastfree products have layers of ultra-absorbent core in the pads, which firmly locks in the heaviest of flow. We are proud to say that our products absorb blood from 220ml to 500ml in our different sizes, which is 5 times of what is available.
