Benefits of Reusable Cotton Pads
A lot of women suffer from yeast infections, itching and other discomforts as a result of synthetic materials in disposable pads. Disposable pads and tampons are made of many different materials such as plastics, chemicals and perfumes that won’t let your skin or vulva breath. The climate in your underwear can get quite humid and warm during times, especially wearing a pad and during menstruation. Using cloth pads made of natural cotton that will let air through and doesn’t contain any toxins or chemicals will help keep your vulva happy and hopefully free from discomforts. Cloth pads will keep you dry and fresh and are so soft and comfortable that you will hardly even notice wearing them.
What is PUL?
PUL is short for polyurethane laminated polyester and is a polyester fabric with a very thin layer of plastic. PUL is used as a leak-proof layer in diaper covers, wet bags and cloth pads.
The PUL in ImseVimse’s products are OEKO-tex certified and safe to use for humans. PUL is, in other words, a type of plastic but a plastic of ”the better” kind and free from toxins. Also taking in consideration that you will reuse your cloth pads over and over again for many years before being recycled, while disposable pads are thrown away after only one single use.
The health benefits are as many as the environmental ones. By switching from disposable sanitary pads and tampons to cloth pads, you no longer need to overuse all the plastics, chemicals and perfumes that disposables are made of.
A menstruating person menstruates on average for 32 years and uses approximately 12,000-16,000 disposable pads and tampons in a lifetime. Disposables are after only one single use thrown away and left to decompose. Many of these products unfortunate end up in nature as well. Also the process of making disposable products have a great impact on the environment which should also be taken into consideration when looking at the environmental impacts that disposable sanity products have on our planet.
Looking back at the previous information regarding how many pads and tampons we use during our lifetime, it is simple math to convert this into hard cash. During a lifetime we spend ridiculous amounts of money on something that we only use once to then throw away. Imagine if we did the same with plates and cutlery and only used disposable utensils instead and after every meal, we simply threw the plates away in the trash. Sounds crazy right? Well, that is exactly what we are doing by using disposable tampons and pads.
By swapping our sanitary protection to reusable ones you will quite quickly get your money’s worth.
