We get it, talking feminine care can feel awkward, but here at MADE SAFE, we believe that this conversation is a top priority. That’s why in our New Year’s Revolution challenge for this month, we are challenging you to rethink your period products.
Every woman I’ve ever met remembers her first period, and usually has a story to boot. For me, I’ll never forget seeking the counsel of the school nurse on that day way-back-when. She handed over a pad essentially the size of a diaper. Oh, how times have changed! These days, pads have gotten thinner, tampons are now much more common, and new solutions like menstrual cups and period panties are taking the femcare market by storm. It’s a good time to be alive with a period!
Maybe you’ve just learned that you’re pregnant, or maybe you have a new baby or growing children. Perhaps you and your partner are just thinking about having a family.

Unfortunately, many common back-to-school items can contain toxic ingredients. It can be hard to figure out what’s safe and what’s not, and sometimes it feels like you almost need a PhD just to research nontoxic products for your children—and we’re already busy enough as parents!

If you’ve ever looked at the label on a conventional pad or tampon box, you might find it lacking for ingredients. Maybe you’ve wondered what’s actually in there. But hey, it’s just cotton, right? (more…)
Natracare just made history by becoming the first brand with MADE SAFE™ certified pads, tampons, maternity pads, and nursing pads.
Why is this a big deal? Because, if you’ve ever looked at the label on the conventional pad or tampon box, you might find it a bit lacking. The feminine care industry has historically been shrouded in secrecy. (more…)
