No plastics. Never rayon. Only cotton.
Periods can be messy, but we don’t mess around when it comes to the materials we use at Only. Every one of our period products includes sustainable items that disappear as readily as they were created. Organic cotton is our staple, and we ensure workers and their soil are as protected as you are on those panty liner days.
Each natural cotton panty liner includes:
- An organic cotton absorbent core and top sheet
- A biodegradable and compostable waterproof layer
- Some adhesive (it needs to stick!)
- A wrapper made from silicone paper
It’s not a misprint; the list really is that short. So, what’s in regular panty liners that are not so great? Most contain synthetic (lab-made) materials, like rayon, that don’t break down easily. And don’t even get us started on the packaging. There’s cotton in there somewhere, but it’s a far reach from being organic. Some even include a fragrance, made from unspecified ingredients that can cause soreness and irritation.
Your intimate skin deserves more than a mess of materials that can harm it and don’t break down once used. Only liners are put together carefully, with practices and materials that are sustainable. No red flags here (well, maybe), just green.
In their lifetime, people who get periods could use thousands of liners that likely won’t be broken down by the time they have their last. It’s easy to reach for a simple solution without thinking about the bigger picture, but Only exists to smash that narrative.
Our organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides, and it uses 1% of the water compared to farming regular cotton. Without the introduction of chemicals, the soil can retain nutrients for longer. It’s also saving one of the best and most precious resources: water. We don’t use bleaching, perfumes or dyes to get our finished product, ensuring our footprint is minimal and safe. Our packaging is biodegradable and compostable, making us certifiably plastic-free.
