Today I want to talk to you about our health. Yes. Woman's hygiene it's highly relevant to our health, mainly cause we can't even imagine the amount of chemicals the products we use every month have.
That's why I have decided to talk to you about Veeda. Founded by two guys, yes, guys, Veeda offers 100% hypoallergenic natural cotton tampons, towels and liners. Most of the products in the market are made from blends of bleached cotton and contain synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, dyes... which can lead to suffer TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) which can attach the major organs, leading to kidney failure, collapse of the lungs, and even cardiac arrest in a matter of hours. 50% of occurrences are associated with high-absorbency tampon use.
Leading brands don't use natural products, and most of them contain harmful ingredients for our organisms such as mixture of viscose rayon, propelyne, cotton and plastics among others. Some brands will disclose their ingredients while other won't, because they aren't required by law. Veeda offers us 100% natural cotton products, biodegradable and hypoallergenic with a similar price to the rest of brands. Because we know sometimes natural products can be extremely expensive meaning we can't afford them every month, but it's not Veeda's case. Plus, it's super easy to find them: you can buy directly from their site, at Boots online and stores or at Amazon's site. So, there are no excuses to take care of ourselves during these days of the month.
I have tried the towels and the regular applicator-free tampons (next will be with it). I am super happy with them, they are even more absorbent than the brands I used before and don't smell. Plus, before I used to have pain while using tampons because of the chemicals they have, but now I don't feel anything. And I love to know that while helping my organism I also helping our environment, could it be any better? ☺ I invite you all to try them, what can you lose?
