Periods or ‘Time of the Month’ is always a little taboo subject to talk about, however, right now I think it is super important. Stay tuned to hear why….
Your Happy Period is a 100% organic Tampon box that is sent to you on a monthly subscription basis. For just £6.50 a month you can receive 18 organic tampons. You can choose which ever size you like between Mini, Regular, and Super to suit your needs. You’ll also receive a BPA-free tampon case made out of recycled plastic.
Now you may think why on earth is she reviewing tampons!?!?!? But no, I am not going to tell you how comfy or un-comfy they feel nor am I going to tell you about its absorbency or lack of. This post is to express to you how important it is to use organic tampons.
Last year Kourtney Kardashian said on Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she doesn’t use tampons because she thinks they’re not “healthy,” you may have started to wonder- are tampons actually bad for you? It certainly got the nation talking about it!
Now we have all heard of TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) but only 1 in 100,000 contract it, but that’s not what I am talking about.
Most items that come in constant contact with your skin will end up in your bloodstream and distributed throughout your body. This is why I’m so fond of saying “don’t put anything on your body that you wouldn’t eat if you had to.” Now did you know manufacturers of tampons and sanitary pads are not required to disclose the ingredients used because feminine hygiene products are considered “medical devices.” Also did you know that the Always Infinity pad has the equivalent to 4 plastic bags in its ingredients. BPA and BPS disrupt embryonic development and are linked to heart disease and cancer and Phthalates, that are used to give the tampon applicator’s that smooth finish, are actually know to impair gene expression! All these things are super toxic to humans.
Tampons supplied by Your Happy Period are made from 100% organic cotton!!- That. Is. It!!!!! No chemicals… no hidden agenda…. Just cotton!
Now there is one thing that I think is absolutely wonderful of the company and that is for each box sent, you will give a month’s supply of pads to a girl in need. The company want girls to stay in school, and provide them with a better future (heart melt)- what a fantastic gesture!
This company is what has been missing from the market for so so long! Keep you body happy and healthy!
