"I've used several brands of tampons since needing to at age 13 (ugh, tee hee), & these work as well as the most expensive. However, my very sensitive skin has noticed a good difference with Natracare, yay, so nice to have organic cotton & no harsh chemicals! Just sad no doctor or "heathy" friend told me about these (or anything like it) sooner. I've used the regular, super (both with & without applicators) & liners in this brand for about 4 months now, & will continue buying them until I don't need to. I like the tampons with app. better (& like that they are not plastic), as it makes it easier to get a comfortable (non-leaking) fit. I realize that this brand costs more than what I used to buy, but this is safer/healthier for the one of the bodies most sensitive areas...so worth it!"
"It only makes sense that if you eat clean and use natural cleaners, etc... Why the heck would you put bleached, chemical filled tampons inside of you?? These are natural cotton, not bleached and do not contain harmful chemicals like traditional tampons do. The applicator takes a little time getting use to but other than that, these are great!"
"Preferred this brand over the comparable by Seventh Generation. Both are extremely similar but had an easier time getting this applicator to slide down... and a few cents cheaper. Overall great product. (PS- as mentioned, packs of 16 have applicator and 20 don't. Not sure why its not specified for this brand)"
"I love these. We only use organic & non-chlorine bleached products at my house. VITACOST has the best price I've ever seen. TIP: the 16 count have applicators, the 20 count do not. It does not specify in the description."
"I actually like these better the the big box brand. They absorb better and way less leaks/spots. These have an applicator which I prefer but some may not. Had to scroll my mouse over the box to make sure. Organic is the way to go. A woman's delicate tissues are highly absorbent so a non bleached and organic choice is better for the body."
"I buy these tampons because they are made of organic cotton. I don't like to put GMO cotton/chemicals into me. I think they work better than the other store brand tampons I've gotten in the past, and they don't make me feel sick."
"I don't usually like to use tampons because they make me feel uncomfortable within a couple of hours, but these don't. Must have to do with the organic cotton! I also love the fact that these come in paper applicators instead of the usual plastic ones, and the wrapper is also paper. Worth every cent spent!"
"The tampons work. There's nothing crazy or innovative about the design as you may stereotypically expect from a "green" product. But they do work and are organic cotton for your feminine hygiene health!"
"I found these Organic Tampons GREAT!!! They come with a cardboard applicator for easy use. The are Organic and make all the difference in the world!! They do the job well, and one can feel comfortable knowing it is a NOT a TOXIC item on such a PERSONAL item like this!!! Highly Recommend it!!!"
"These are very absorbent, considering they are cotton and not rayon. They are a much healthier option to commercial tampons, which contain so many chemicals. The applicator feels as smooth as if it were plastic, but is cardboard so you're helping the environment too."
"I will only use these tampons! They arre more pricey than the nonorganic but so worth it. The others would make me sore and I'd get cramps, since switching it don't have the pain any more. Defiantly worth the extra money in the long run! The applicator is not super smooth like plastic but it's not terrible either, just be sure to open where the arrow says to."
"I buy Natracare organic cotton tampons because they are good quality (comfortable and absorbent) and, most important, chlorine-free and biodegradable. It's good to know I can buy a product that takes care of my needs while not contributing to more environment degradation!"
