Natracare Organic Cotton Tampons Regular with Applicator
Organic regular tampons with a smooth easy glide cardboard applicator, which is completely biodegradable. Just twist to release and push.
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.
Many rayon blend tampons have a plastic veil to prevent fibre loss, and they can also have added perfume or dyes which is unnecessary for managing your period.

Q: Why use a cardboard applicator?
Cardboard is the most eco friendly applicator a tampon can have. Our applicator is entirely recyclable or compostable. Some companies have introduced plant based applicators but these behave like plastic and do not biodegrade.
These plastic applicators are often made with higher renewable content than conventional plastic but behave in the same damaging way to the environment after use. Look for home compostable plant based plastics to ensure it will break down safely.
Q: How to use an applicator tampon?
Some tampons come with an applicator to help insert a tampon. 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.
Q: 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.
Q: How often should I change my tampon?
It’s important to change your tampons regularly, every 4 to 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).
