Glyphosate, chlorine, fragrances, and a surplus of other toxic chemicals all up in your lady parts?? Thanks, but NO THANKS.

Believe it or not, we actually have to worry about finding non-toxic period products because our feminine hygiene routine can be a big contributor to our chemical exposure. Just think about it: we have to wear various period products throughout the phases of our cycles for a minimum of 5-10 days every single month for decades! And because they're situated right against our skin or inside our actual bodies, we're that much more available to absorb whatever chemicals are lurking in them.

It's crazy that women have to add another burden to our already full plates, but we're talking about toxic ingredients that can cause hormone disruption, infertility, cancer and birth defects. The easiest way to protect yourself from these dangers is to choose products made with natural, organic and safe materials without added toxins like chlorine, petrochemicals, and fragrances.

    1. Hi Jo-Anne! We’ve never heard of Modibodi so I’m afraid we can’t help you there. As for Thinx, we’re not fans of their company’s position on many fronts, or their handling of an unsettling blogger program issue they had, so we’ve chosen not to include them in our list.

  1. I’ve used DivaCup for three years now and have converted many of my friends. Inserting takes a little practice but now, I would NEVER go back. It’s the best!!!!
