Natracare Ultra pads are made from only certified organic 100% cotton and renewable and sustainable plant cellulose. They are totally plastic-free, and like all of Natracare products, are totally chlorine-free because we never use chlorine bleach in any of our production processes.
- certified organic pure cotton
- plastic free
- perfume free
- totally chlorine-free
Being plastic-free means Natracare does not contain any polyethylene, polypropylene or polyacrylate super absorbents, all of which can irritate the skin.
Women can be reassured that Natracare Ultra pads do not contain synthetic materials, chemical additives such as binders or surfactants, fragrances or dyes and because of the organic and natural materials used, are over 95% biodegradable and compostable. The absorbent core of the pad is made from Forest Stewardship Council certified pulp (FSC) and the cover that is next to your skin is certified organic 100% cotton. The pads are individually wrapped in biodegradable purse packs.
The slim style of the Ultra pad is very discreet with the added security of wings. The absorbent core absorbs the menstrual fluid and locks it away so that the soft organic cotton cover allows your skin to breath whilst at the same time keeping you dry. There is a full choice of absorbencies to choose from and the super absorbency is suitable for medium flow.
why natracare pads
Natracare’s organic and natural principles give women comfortable, reliable protection as well as caring for our environment.
The pads are made from certified organic 100% cotton and natural cellulose materials derived from renewable and sustainable sources and are over 99% biodegradable and compostable. Natracare’s totally chlorine-free and 100% plastic-free pads provide the natural choice for women – helping you to avoid the synthetic materials such as rayon, the plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene, chlorine bleaches which releases toxic dioxins, petroleum derived super absorbents, latex and skin irritants and chemicals such as fragrances and dyes, which are present in so many other feminine hygiene products.
Because not all women are the same and prefer different styles, Natracare pads are available in maxi and ultra thin designs, both with and without wings.
Many gynaecologists have advised women with sensitive skin to use natracare pads to reduce their contact with chlorine bleached materials, and also products containing synthetics, latex and super absorbents made from petrochemicals.
