Why organic Tampons?
Natracare was developed as a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine bleaching, the use of rayon in tampons, and the extensive use of pesticides on conventionally grown GM cotton. Since 1989, Natracare has been trusted by women the world over, seeking a chemical-free choice in tampons, pads, liners and wipes.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Ladies if you haven't switched to organic tampons do it right now! The less chemicals in/on your body the better! I suffered for years from very heavy and painful menses. Once I started using these tampons I noticed my menses less painful and less flow. In the past I would need a super plus tampon every hour, but with this brand I could use one regular tampon for a couple hours. I am CONVINCED the combination of a vegetarian lifestyle, and using organic care products (shampoo, conditioner, lotions, and most importantly TAMPONS!) have helped my menses get lighter and less painful. Please do your body a favor and try these!!
I've been looking for tampons with applicators (sorry, can't use it without!) that I trust! Don't like the conventional brands, especially with plastic applicators. In Taiwan, tampons are available, but I can't use them and just don't really like them, especially because there's no applicator. I don't know who uses them, actually. Natracare's applicator is great - it has a rounded tip that you can push the tampon through, not just a cardboard tube with a whole at the end (which works OKAY but not all that comfortable). I'm really super happy I can oder these items from iHerb, I don't have to even go out of the house, and I can order for a few months at a time - much, much easier. I use tampons and pads together (I find I need to as that seems to work the best), but I do rely a great deal on tampons, esepcially if I'm going to be out and about. Plus, they're much easier to carry if you're traveling. These really work wonderfully, and puts my mind (and body) at ease! I wish I didn't HAVE to use any of it, so I will try the moon cup again, but all in all, I am very happy and satisfied with Natracare! Highly recommended, and the price is great - so is the quality! If you haven't made the shift yet, you won't regret it and you won't ever go back. I hope : ) PS: "regular" I think is really about "regular", same as other brands, so you can go with that. I am posting the same review for the SUPER, as I've used them both.
