Using 100% cotton for their feminine hygiene products, Veeda is part of the Naturalena Brand for its globally environmental practices. The company uses eco-friendly practices in its products and packaging. Additionally, Veeda gives back to the community by supporting a number of organisations. Currently, they have partnered up with The Teen Project's Freehab shelter, their aim is to donate 1 million tampons in a year.
About the product: Oxygen-processed cotton is used to avoid the use of dioxins, bleach, and pesticides. By using 100% cotton, you can also reduce the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)- As there are currently no reported cases of TSS linked with the use of pure cotton tampons, a significantly lower number than the estimated figure of 1 in 700 women who will contract tampon related TSS throughout their lifetime.
Switching to an organic feminine product is the easiest way to reduce the number of unneeded chemicals that are being put in your body. Those who have suffered from TSS in the past are not advised to use tampons, soVeeda has a wide range of 100% natural biodegradable sanitary towels, anatomically-designed for your comfort and a barely there feeling. (Seriously they are so soft!) This is unlike any other pad in the market and swaps out all chemicals, synthetics, and dyes, for a hypoallergenic all natural alternative.
