Anybody got a tamp with less material, made from organic cotton and biodegradable materials? We got you. Created with GU’s patented CottonLock System technology that helps prevent fibre shredding on insertion and removal. Our applicator-free organic tampons are sustainable and easy to use, combining all the things you love with nothing you don’t need.
We’ve chosen three core flows to focus on, providing period solutions to our regular, super, and super plus menstruators. Still in love with the idea of an applicator? We hear you. Check out Canada’s first reusable tampon applicator.
The organic cotton difference.
Unlike big retail brands, we do not use any rayon in our products.
Be careful as rayon is often disguised as "natural wood pulp" in some ingredient lists. Why? Because "natural wood pulp" comes from trees that are 1) deforested, and then 2) processed using metric tons of heavy and toxic chemicals to break down those trees into that soft, cotton-looking pad or tampon. The chemicals used to break down the trees into a wearable textile can be dangerous to humans - particularly the workers who work with them.
Layer in some super absorbent polymers and you've got yourself a totally synthetic pad and tampon. Nothing "natural" about it.
If you want a truly natural product: we've got you covered with one of nature's most breathable and absorbent materials: renewable, organic cotton. We feel that organic cotton isn't just better for your body, but comes from a more sustainable source that also keeps people all along the supply-chain safer in comparison to synthetic products.
Our tampons contain organic cotton grown without the use of herbicides or pesticides. No more cutting down trees to make pads and tampons. No more of this rayon aka: "natural wood pulp." No extra added absorbent polymers. No more plastic wrappers and packaging and applicators all up in my garbage can after period week, please and thanks!
