The female body undergoes various changes every month, particularly around the ovulation period. During menstruation, our bodies expel toxins through bleeding. Many of us use personal hygiene products, such as tampons, which provide many benefits for menstruating bodies. Often, these have a negative effect on the environment and our wallets. At Womankind, we offer natural feminine products as alternatives to tampons and pads. One particular product is our natural sea sponge.
Natural sea sponges as tampons
A popular choice for those who menstruate are tampons. WomanKind offers natural sea sponges that are made from organic and eco-friendly resources collected from the sea. They are soft, and safe for sensitive genital areas and skin types and come in various sizes.
There are many ways in which you can benefit from this product. The sponges do not contain any fragrances or synthetic ingredients and are suitable for both light and heavy flows. Rough, synthetic materials can cause skin irritation. Natural sea sponges are soft, and made from organic materials, which reduces that risk.
These sponges are antibacterial, which fights odor-inducing bacteria and mold from building up. Menstrual sea sponges can last longer than normal sponges and can be used between 3-6 period cycles. You can wash them and reuse them after menstruation and they are easy to discard.
Sea Sponges consist of sustainable and biodegradable materials, making them safe for disposal. They are reusable which helps to reduce the amount of waste that we create. Mainstream menstrual products, like pads and tampons, can only be used once before disposal, which increases our carbon footprint.
The natural sea sponges contain no plastic, synthetic materials, or perfumes. Compared to tampons, they contain less harmful chemicals, which benefits your body as well as the environment.
Sea sponges are easy to use, which makes them a great choice as a personal hygiene product. They allow us to go about our day-to-day lives while menstruating while providing a safer alternative for menstruating bodies and the environment. Visit our Womankind store for a greener alternative choice.
