I had the opportunity to review Natracare's new mommy products which contained their nursing pads, maternity pads and baby wipes. Natracare, a role model company and winner of an ethical award from the Ethical Company Organisation, is committed to your health and the health of the environment through sharing organic farming principles, taking toxic chemicals and hazards our of your personal care and by reducing the "plastic burden" created by most feminine hygiene products used today.
I'll never forget the day 10 years ago that I came across detailed information listing the ingredients in most feminine hygiene products. Pesticides, herbicides and dioxins (such as chlorine), all toxic chemicals that are known to cause cancer, are the same ingredients you will find in most feminine hygiene products found on supermarket shelves. I couldn't believe that product companies would produce and promote such products and not worry about the harm they would cause to women across the globe!
So during my next shopping trip I looked at the ingredients on the back of all the feminine hygiene product's boxes to find the list of ingredients and sure enough...they all contained harmful ingredients. My next stop...a natural foods market to see the feminine hygiene products they carry and look to see if they were safe to use. Low and behold...I found Natracare! And I've been a loyal customer ever since that day.
I should also note, the price of Natracare and other natural feminine hygiene products are comparable to those found at other stores. I know the price of products we use today are very important to many of us.
Natracare's products are totally chlorine free, made from all natural materials and organic cotton, contain no additives such as dyes or perfumes, biodegradable and free from plastics. It's no wonder why Natracare is the choice for so many women!
Natracare's mother and baby products were the winner of TIPS best eco-friendly products. Midwife tested and approved, Natracare's products are a safe choice for new moms and their little ones.
Their nursing pads are soft, comfortable and very absorent to use and kinder to breastfeeding moms and babies because they are safe against our skin.
Natracare's maternity pads are also soft and contain no polyacrylate super absorbents or other synthetics.
The new mommy who reviewed the maternity pads said they were thicker than she would have liked...making sitting down a little uncomfortable. A maternity pad that is less dense would be more comfortable to use while healing from the side effects of birthing.
Natracare's baby wipes are so great! They are very gentle to the touch, making it the perfect wipe for your baby's sensitive skin. They are made from pure, organic plant extracts and oils in combination with other natural plant ingredients. I highly recommend trying Natracare's baby wipes.
