Non-Toxic Feminine Care Products
All women have to use menstrual hygiene products.
However, we don’t have to be exposed to toxic chemicals in the process.
I did not learn until recently that conventional feminine care products are filled with pesticides, bleach, and harmful plastics, among other things. And since our skin is permeable, these materials are being absorbed directly into our bloodstreams and being distributed throughout our bodies. I found this article very helpful when researching, because it goes in depth into the ingredients used to make pads and tampons, and why they affect our health.
The exciting news is, there are tons of alternatives. And in the end, they may be preferable to the store bought versions anyway!
If you would like to read about non-toxic alternatives, my daughter Allison has compiled a list of them to help you get started!
If you have any non-toxic alternatives you use, or if you have any testimonies about improved health after switching, I would love to hear about it in the comments.
You and your daughters deserve non-toxic feminine care products, it is so worth it to make the switch!
