TOTM is our our top choice in organic cotton sanitary care. Sanitary towels and tampons often are made with materials that create dioxins (a known hormone disruptor), which has also been linked to immune system repression and reproductive issues. They are also bleached with chlorine that can disrupt the fine balance of your vaginal flora. Other chemicals used can encourage blood withdrawal and thus heavier periods, which is not what any woman wants. Non-organic tampons and towels are not biodegradable and thus can damage the environment… and we all want to care for our planet. You can see why there are many reasons to choose organic cotton sanitary products.
