FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS : Why Organic?
In this day and age “organic” is a everywhere we look. The focus really though is on putting optimal health and wealth into our bodies and back into the planet and one way this is often overlooked for women is feminine hygiene products.
Aimee Marks is the Founder of Tom Organics and has an exceptional story of how this company came to be.
When we look further into what our feminine hygiene products are made out of we see that the ingredients used are pesticide sprayed cotton, synthetics and plastics which involve a massive chemical process to produce rayon and polyproylene (can cause allergic reactions in women) which are dangerous chemicals to be readily absorbed into our blood stream and carried around our bodies into our cells. Conventional cotton is responsible for 25% of the worlds insecticides and 10% of the worlds synthetic fertilisers (25% … that is massive). So not only does this have a dangerous impact in our bodies but also in our world and the environment that we live in.
In a study done by Dr. P. Tierno, Clinical Professor of Microbiology and Pathology at NYU noted that there has never been a known documentation of Toxic Shock Syndrome from Organic Tampon use.
