What You Put In Your Body Matters. 100% Organic Cotton. Rayon-Free. Chlorine Free. Hypoallergenic. 12000—that’s how many tampons the average woman will use in her lifetime. What you put in your body matters. When we started reading conventional tampon boxes and saw what was in them—rayon polyester fiber finishes—we were surprised but after learning about the processing these ingredients go through we were shocked! So we decided women deserve an education and a smarter choice…100% Organic Cotton Tampons. Organic means pesticide-free. Chlorine-free means free from dioxin a known carcinogen. Fragrance-free means no chemical perfumes. Our tampons are also rayon-free and hypoallergenic which means less risk of irritation. The applicator is made of biodegradable cardboard and has a smooth rounded tip for easy insertion. The vagina is one of the most chemically-absorbent places in the body so it’s important to give it some love. Why aren’t all tampons made this way? We don’t know. Women deserve a choice and they deserve cotton.
"I'm sure the non-applicator version is fine, but the ones with the applicators have a curved tip and it is impossible to get the tampon to eject. You are better off with open-end applicators. Natracare and the Whole Foods brands are great."
"When it comes to chlorine-free, organic-cotton tampons, I can find two sizes with applicators--regular and super. So in the past I would keep a box of each on hand. Not only does Emerita give me more than one size in the same box, it includes "super plus," which definitely has more absorbency than super. So, this product is exactly what I need as I move through the various days of my period: super plus, super and regular."
"Good effective product, offers good protection. I had to get used to and learn not to grip and press the cardboard applicator too hard or else it will get stuck and not push up. Wasted two, but i learned you can take it out of the applicator and still use it if you are comfortable doing so. Worth using instead of the toxic and wasteful plastic ones I was using."
"I love these tampons and feel confident that I'm not putting toxic ingredients in a very special place! I love that they have the super plus size but I wish they also had the very small (XS) size too."
