Frequently Asked Questions
Learn more about our products!
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.
