A recent report from Women's Voices of the Earth explores the loopholes that allow for toxic chemicals in feminine products to go untested and unpoliced.

  • Tampons and pads contain dioxins, furans, and pesticides associated with cancer and endocrine/reproductive disruption.
  • Wipes, washes, douches, and deodorants contain parabens, dyes, and unknown chemicals under the label of "fragrance".
  • These products are in intimate contact with mucosal tissue, in girls, now beginning at precocious ages, and lasting through menopause.

We cannot rely on the FDA to assure safety of these products classified as "medical devices" (tampons) and "cosmetics" (wipes, etc). Choose an inert method such as the GladRags or organic feminine products.
