14 Nov The truth about Feminine Hygiene Products
We know that the skin is both the largest, and thinnest organ in your body. This means, we have around 2.5 mm separating our body potentially harmful toxins. Because of this we are mindful of what we put on our skin in terms of cosmetics, skin care and sun lotion, but we often don’t think about the liners or tampons we use.
Since the development of ‘modern’ feminine hygiene products in the late 1800s very little has been said about what does into pads, liners and tampons and the issue of safe feminine hygiene products is seldom raised.
As technology has changed, manufactures are spending more and more on developing the thinnest, lightest, whitest product. But what is the risk of this ‘advancement’.
While tampon and sanitary pad manufacturers aren’t required to disclose their ingredients because they are considered “medical devices”. When tested, however disposable feminine hygiene products have been found to emit chemicals, like styrene, chloroethane and chloroform, and to also contain dioxins and chlorine bleach.
The risk of using these types of chemicals in materials that sit next to your skin, is that constant contact may result in these toxins ending up in the bloodstream for distribution throughout the body.
While it could be argued (perhaps not convincingly) that in short doses, exposure to these chemicals may not seem so bad, on average women will use as many as 16,000 feminine hygiene products in her life… so the risk to women’s health is real!
