Same great products, now in new packaging.
Tampons are not all created equal and, contrary to what you might assume, they’re often not made from 100% cotton. If you read tampon box labels, you’re likely to find such ingredients as “rayon, ” “polyester, ” “polypropylene, ” “fragrance, ” and “fiber finishes” (whatever that means).
Considering that the average woman will use about 12, 000 tampons in her lifetime, what you put in your body matters. That’s why Emerita® has constructed Emerita® tampons from a women’s health perspective:
Emerita®s tampons are made of 100% certified organic cotton. That means you can expect their cotton to be free from pesticide residues. Emerita®s cotton is cleansed with a mild hydrogen peroxide solution, so it’s also chlorine-free. What’s more, cotton is a great, natural fiber. It’s inherently fluffy and absorbent and requires minimal chemical processing. Cotton is simply cotton.
Construction matters, too. So these tampons also feature a high-quality security veil—a fine, cotton outer mesh to help keep the fibers in the core of the tampon, where they belong. A lot of tampons don’t have a security veil, or if they do it’s often not a very secure one. Without a high-quality security veil, there’s more risk of tampon fibers shedding and being left behind.
Emerita® Applicator Tampons are rayon-free, perfume-free, chlorine-free… and synthetic-free. There’s nothing here but 100% organic cotton goodness. All tampons are not created equal. What you put in your body matters™.
Emerita®s tampons come with a biodegradable cardboard applicator. Available in Regular, Super and Super-Plus absorbencies.
