Organyc: What is it?
Did you know that, throughout our lifetime, we use around 11,000 disposable period products?
Standard menstrual pads can be made of up to 90% plastic. Oh, and they also contain traces of chemicals like pesticides (used in the farming of non-organic cotton) and chlorine (used for bleaching).
Considering then how many and how often we wear pads and tampons, we deserve products that are kind and ideally non-toxic to our bodies and the environment.
Understandably, not everyone feels comfortable with the idea of using a menstrual cup or reusable pants… Here’s where Organyc comes in.
Organyc is a family-run business that has been pioneering organic period products for 15 years. For those who prefer the comfort of using disposable period products, Organyc specialise in organic period pads and tampons that are gentle on your skin and the planet.
Saying goodbye to the nasty toxins and synthetics, Organyc’s products are 100% certified organic cotton inside out – ‘no perfume, dyes and other junk’ – and are clinically proven to reduce intimate skin irritations.
Their products are soft on the skin, hypoallergenic, breathable, and absorbent by nature.
