Introducing Organyc Tampons and Pads

Organyc is not a complete new brand for us. We have sold their organic cotton sanitary towels and tampons before, but we’ve never had a chance to really introduce them to you. Plus the range has expanded so there’s more to talk about now!

Why Organyc?

Conventional tampons and pads are made from synthetic materials like viscose, rayon, polypropylene and super absorbent polymers. Since these are primarily made from plastic they aren’t really that good for the environment, and they probably aren’t great to have so close to your skin for up to 8 hours a day.

As you can guess from the name, Organyc use certified organic cotton in their sanitary products, cleaned with a naturally occurring disinfectant rather than bleached with nasty chemicals. Organic cotton is naturally soft and breathable so skin is not irritated. Plus the pads and tampons are still super absorbent.

Organyc products are even more eco-friendly because they are biodegradable and compostable, reducing the amount of waste ending up in landfill and our seas. The packaging is also environmentally friendly as the cardboard is recycled and the pads are wrapped in Mater-Bí®.

Pads

Organyc pads & panty liners have an absorbent internal core made from 100% organic cotton wool with a superior layer of pure, non woven organic cotton. They are free from perfume, colouring agents and super absorbent polymers. Packaged in a bioplastic film and with recycled cardboard boxes, it is completely biodegradable and compostable.

Tampons

Made from 100% organic cotton, Organyc tampons reduce the risk of irritations and allergies. The tampons come in a choice of with or without an applicator. The cardboard applicator is more eco-friendly and has a softly rounded tip for easy insertion.

Intimate care

And let’s not forget the intimate care. With wet wipes made from 100% organic cotton and intimate wash made with natural ingredients. The intimate care range is free from alcohol, chlorine, parabens and SLS.

Get to Know Green People

As humans we are inquisitive and resourceful creatures, when we need something and can’t find it, we’ll create it ourselves. That’s exactly what happened for Charlotte Vøht in 1994. Her daughter Sandra suffered multiple skin allergies along with eczema, and although Charlotte tried to find skin care products made with natural ingredients that would be gentle on her daughter’s skin, but it turns out most cosmetics found on the high street contained chemicals – they only needed to have less than 1% of natural or organic ingredients to be labelled ‘natural’.
