Protect Your Menstrual Cycle From Toxic Chemicals

There are toxic chemicals in tampons, pads, and other feminine hygiene products that may cause infertility, cancer, and other health problems. Learn how to detoxify your feminine care.

Menstrual Cycle

Ah, the sun is shining, birds are singing, and, wait, am I cramping?

We know that getting your period can make Mondays even harder than they already are. During that time of the month, it’s especially important to take care of your health and well-being. Toxic chemicals found in many feminine hygiene products are not part of our self-care checklist!

Cleanse Your Body of Toxic Feminine Hygiene

We know the last thing you want to hear when you’re bent over from cramps or unbuttoning your jeans from bloating is that the feminine hygiene products you’re using may be detrimental to your health. Feminine hygiene products such as pads and tampons can contain some nasty chemicals.

These toxic chemicals in feminine hygiene products will give you more than cramps:

These chemicals find their way into our bathrooms through period product dyes, fragrances, and packaging. The vagina is highly absorbable, so harmful chemicals in the feminine hygiene products we use have a direct access point to harm our bodies. But toxic chemicals will leave you more than cramping - they have been linked to infertility, hormone disruption, and severe skin irritation.
