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. We use organic cotton, wood pulp, biodegradable sap and vegan glue for all products.
How good is Plastfree compared with other similar ones?
Our products are kinder to your skin and biodegradable core absorbs 5 times more blood/ leaks than the other brands- doing it's job. Our glue is just right making the wings stick & does not fall apart. Plastfree pads don't get stuck too much on to fabric making it a bad experience like other organic pads.
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 other 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.
ARE YOUR PADS ORGANIC?
Yes. There’s a world of difference between conventional cotton pads & certified organic cotton pads. Conventional pads contain almost 4 single carrier bags and are produced with regular cotton using heavy pesticides & chemicals. The cotton top sheet used in Plastfree pads are sourced from farms using natural organic process. Although we use 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, we do not overprice our product. We believe in giving our future generation a premium eco-friendly organic product that they can afford.
Are your products biodegradable?
The inner core is made form biodegradable sap which means it takes upto 2 years to disintegrate in humid conditions in a landfill. Whereas, the conventional pads take upto 500-800 years to biodegrade.
The back layer of the pad is also made from biodegradable material, a new leak proof 'biodegradable bottom layer' instead of plastic PE (poly-ethylene) layer as given by others.
Are your products all Vegan?
All of our products are Vegan products. Ingredients and production methods are checked and certified by the experts at Vegetarian Society.
