How are they used?
What do they look like?
The top layer is made of antibacterial, silky-soft polyester. This material helps reduce odor-causing bacteria and fungi and keeps the integrity of the fabric intact. It is comfortable on the skin and ensures that the skin remains smooth and fresh. The middle layer is a blend of polyester and bamboo. It helps transport moisture away from the skin and retains liquid 2 times better than even the highest absorbency cotton. The bottom layer is made of TPU, so you no longer have to worry about leaks. The material keeps the liquid inside
How do they wash?
Make sure the Velcro is closed, put them in the laundry bag, and wash them cold in the washing machine. Air dry.
Cold washing at 30°C is always recommended, as blood solidifies at high temperatures.
How do they make a difference?
Although it is difficult to quantify the global use of disposable pads, about 49 billion and 19 billion disposable menstrual products are consumed annually in the EU and the US, respectively. The different composition of disposable menstrual products, along with the presence of organic matter after use, makes their recycling technically and economically cost ly. As a result, most of these products are disposed of in landfills or incinerated. Disposable pads can contain up to 90 percent plastic and are often individually packaged.
