"I have been trying to find a tampon that has no chemicals and not bleached etc. which Natracare offers. For me I just didn't care for the Cardboard Applicator wasn't comfortable at all. And the length of these tampons is at least 1/4 inch longer than the playtex I was using. that 1/4 inch for me was painful. So unfortunately I won't be using these natracare tampons. As far as the quality .. they appeared to be a high quality cotton and came well packaged. wish they would have worked ..now to continue my search."
"I wanted to start using Organic Cotton Tampons instead of the other popular brands that were not organic. Vitacost has better pricing on this product then the local stores. I also bought these because they have an applicator. Easy to use; I push the tampon slightly out of the applicator tip before inserting. It absorbs just like the other brands. This is my second month using them and I had minimal cramping. I usually would have one day of bad cramps using the brands that were not organic. I feel good that I am not using the other brands anymore and that my body is not absorbing the bad chemicals in them."
"I know about the importance of using organic tampons over regular ones and just knowing these are made from organic cotton ensure I'm doing my body good. For me, I find the "Regular" tampons work great."
"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!"
