highest QUALITY & comfort

Regular Tampons

We are thrilled to be intoducing the new tampons to you very soon. The Regular Tampons soak 6g-9g of blood. Plastfree cardboard applicators are made from cardboard, in a compact form.

Plastfree tampons have an additional nonwoven layer covering the tampon, which can aid insertion and removal. The absorbent material in a tampon is formed from  GOTS organic certified cotton.

ECF or TCF (elemental chlorine free or totally chlorine free) bleaching methods are used in tampon production. Chlorine bleaching is never used for fibres used for making tampons.

Plastfree Organic Tampons include provision for withdrawal with a suitably attached withdrawal organic cotton cord to ensure safe and complete tampon removal.

Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)

Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is associated with tampons. It is a rare illness that can prove to be fatal too. Please visit this site for further information on TSS such as www.toxicshock.com

Symptoms of TSS

Signs to be aware of are: a sudden high fever usually over 39°C, vomiting, diarrhoea, muscle aches, a sun burn like rash, sore throat, dizziness and/or fainting or severe flu-like feeling. All symptoms may not occur simultaneously. If symptoms of TSS occur, remove the tampon, consult a doctor urgently and inform him or her that a tampon has been used.

Reduce the chances of getting TSS

  • In the case of night time use, insert a fresh tampon before going to sleep and to replace the tampon first thing in the morning. Regardless of when used, day or night, remember to change their tampon every 4 to 8 hours or more often if needed.
  • use the lowest absorbency for their flow as it changes throughout their period
  • alternate between tampons and towels/pads, liners from time to time during your period
  • wash your hands before and after inserting a tampon.

 

Our Approach

With our products Plastfree hopes to bring to you eco friendly, biodegradable and all natural sanitary pads in different and unique designs for the unique needs of every woman. We wish to offer premium sanitary pads at a price that anyone can afford.

The Process

Here at Plastfree we believe that making a truly eco-friendly product keeps both environmental and human safety in mind. And this approach is taken in every step of not only the production of our pads but also in its forms of packaging and waste disposal as well.

“This is a great product, I hate the usual on the market sanitary pads due to all the chemicals that they use which often irritates my skin. These on the other hand, not a single itch, and a very comfortable feel.”

Olivia

I was amazed by their high quality product. It feels very good against my skin. I was very impressed by how reliable and comfortable they are. I’m never going back to plastic pads after using these. Really pleased, they work great.

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.

Yes. There’s a world of difference between conventional cotton pads & certified organic cotton pads.
