Vagina..Period..Tampons, who's feeling uncomfortable already? Veeda got in contact with me recently about raising awareness for natural and safe feminine hygiene products. To be honest I had no idea about the health risks Tampons and pads present, such as Toxic Shock Syndrome, irritation and allergic reactions. This is probably because I tend to trust popular brands and because feminine hygiene care is often a conversation most of us avoid!
Veeda offers the only hypoallergenic, 100% natural cotton tampons, tampons from well known brands are often made from blends of bleached cotton and/or synthetic products. This means they
contain dioxins from the bleaching process, pesticide and herbicide residues, synthetic chemicals and artificial fragrances and dyes.
Veeda's natural cotton tampons have no chemicals, no synthetics and no dyes resulting in a reduced risk of Irritation and Toxic Shock Syndrome. TSS is caused by a bacterial infection which can attack the major organs leading to kidney failure, collapse of the lungs and even cardiac arrest. 50% of occurrences are associated with high-absorbency tampon use.
Veeda offers applicator and applicator-free tampons in lite, regular, super and super plus and a range of towels and liners. With affordable prices such as 16 regular tampons for £1.85 available online and in Boots I will definitely continue to use these products in the future.
