Just picking organic sanitary pads is not enough. Experts say it is important to be careful about a pad’s composition and how eco-friendly it is. Tanvi Johri, founder, Carmesi, and Richa Agarwal from Doctor Insta, list some important things to keep in mind:
* Composition: Many brands claim to offer natural sanitary pads, but a lot of them do not provide all-natural sanitary pads. Only the top sheet of the napkin is natural. Hence, to check the composition of a sanitary pad is of utmost importance. Sanitary pads made of corn starch and bamboo fibre are better options.
* Safe and hygienic disposal: Proper disposal of sanitary napkins ensures that hygiene is maintained. Sanitary pads with disposable bags not only ensures hygiene, but is also convenient for women who are travelling.
* Healthy you, healthy environment: Biodegradable pads go a long way in maintaining environmental health as they decompose faster compared to synthetic pads which take long to decompose.
* Opt for a mix of sizes: It is imperative to opt for a brand that offers various sizes of pads. Women do not use a standard size of pad for their entire cycle, so, choose wisely.
