Natracare Tampons are made using 100% organic cotton, and absolutely nothing else. They are made from a rolled wadding of organic cotton. As it gently absorbs the menstrual flow, it expands lengthways.
Applicator or non-applicator? - Around 20% of women naturally have a retroverted uterus, making the use of the applicator tampons difficult. If it is painful to insert an applicator tampon, then you are best to choose the non-applicator version. Otherwise, it is simply personal preference.
Toxic Shock Syndrome - Independent research, conducted at New York University Medical School, suggests that the use of 100% cotton tampons may reduce the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome compared with tampons that contain rayon. Natracare 100% cotton tampons were included in this research, and in the tests they did not produce the bacteria which leads to Toxic Shock Syndrome. All brands containing rayon did produce the bacteria.
