Natracare Cotton Tampons Super W Applicators 16 CT Box
Most applicators are made from plastic or rigid bio-plastics. These commonly contain phthalates, which can be absorbed through the Skin and cause hormone disruption. Natracare's organic super Tampons include a smooth easy-glide cardboard applicator, which is completely biodegradable. Just twist to release and push!

Many rayon-blend tampons have a plastic veil to prevent fibre-loss, and they can also have added perfume or dyes which is totally unnecessary for managing a period. What's more is they donâ€™t biodegrade, contributing to worldwide plastic-pollution. This is why Natracare Regular Applicator Tampons use only cardboard and organic cotton, and not GM cotton or unnecessary plastic.
Which absorbency should I choose?
Always go for the lowest absorbency that you need. During your period, you may find you use different absorbencies because your flow is lighter at the beginning or end of your period.
How often should I change my Natracare Super Applicator Tampon?
Itâ€™s important to change your Natracare Super Applicator Tampons regularly, every 4-6 hours, and alternate between using tampons and pads. It is not recommended that you wear a tampon when you are sleeping because you will most likely be leaving it in too long. Read the instruction leaflet found in the tampon packs for how to use tampons safely to avoid risks associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).
Why use a cardboard applicator?
Cardboard is the most eco-friendly applicator a tampon can have. Natracare's super applicator is entirely recyclable or compostable. Some companies have introduced â€œplant-based applicatorsâ€ but these behave like plastic and do not biodegrade. These plastic applicators are often made with a higher renewable content than conventional plastic but behave in the same damaging way to the environment after use.
How to use the Natracare Super Applicator Tampon:
Some tampons come with an applicator to help insert a tampon. Natracareâ€™s are made with biodegradable cardboard. Twist the two applicator halves to make ready to push, then press the bottom half upwards to push the tampon out through the top of the applicator.
Some people prefer applicator tampons as a simple, more hands-free way to use tampons.
