Overview

The chemicals used in sanitary pads, tampons and diapers raised concerns throughout the world — particularly near the turn of the 21st century — due to questions about the safety of certain chemicals used in their manufacture, as well as the environmental issues of disposing of them. Because of potential risk factors, some women have opted for organic sanitary pads as an alternative and others have decided to use reusable sanitary pads.

 

Dioxin

A bill introduced in Congress in March 1999 by Representative Carolyn Maloney of the 14th District of New York — the Tampon Safety and Research Act of 1999 (HR 890) — noted that “dioxin is a byproduct of chlorine-beaching processes used in the manufacture of paper products, including tampons, sanitary pads, panty liners and diapers.” HR 890 further pointed out that the effects of dioxin are cumulative and that the chemical may stay in the body for 20 years after exposure. Unfortunately the bill died in committee.

The World Health Organization lists dioxin as one of the “dirty dozen — a group of dangerous chemicals known as persistent organic pollutants.” Dioxin is a known human carcinogen. The Environmental Protection Agency has studied dioxin, however, and indicated that the largest problem with dioxin is from food, not tampons or sanitary pads. A study published by the EPA in 2002 states that exposure to dioxins from sanitary products “does not significantly contribute to dioxin exposures in the United States.”

 

Other Chemicals

A close relative of dioxin, furan, is also found in bleached paper products, including sanitary pads, diapers and tampons. Research published in the Textile Research Journal in 2007 extracted the chemicals found in sanitary pads and tampons throughout the world. While results varied among products, octachlorinated dioxin (OCDD), hexachlorodibenzofuran (HxCDF) and octa-chlorodibenzofuran (OCDF) were detected. These are all banned toxic substances.

 

Recommendations

Several times over the last few years — in 2003, 2005 and 2008 when it died in committee, and most recently in 2011 — Representative Maloney has introduced the Robin Danielson Act. This legislation directs the Institute of Health “to research health risks to women—including endometriosis and cancers of the breast, ovaries, and cervix—from the presence of dioxin, synthetic fibers, and other additives in feminine products.”

Our Story

Our Story

1st Layer:

100% pure cotton. Most top brands use synthetic petrochemical materials. These petrochemical materials may irritate sensitive skin and cause discomfort. Also, they do not let the skin breathe, which increases the risk of bacteria growth. They are chosen by manufacturers because of their cheaper production costs.

2nd Layer:

The all-natural negative ion strip. Negative ions are oxygen atoms charged with an extra electron. They are created in nature by the effects of water, air, and sunlight. That taste in the air and feeling you get at the beach, near a waterfall or after a storm is your body being saturated in the benefits of negative ions. A Professor of Physiology at Harvard University calls negative ions the “Vitamins of the Air”. Angels Secret premium sanitary napkins include negative ion technology which has been proven to balance PH and hormone levels, helps protect against germs and bacteria, helps to reduce inflammation, fights against vaginal irritations and infections and may reduce unwanted odor.

3rd Layer:

Airlaid paper that provides additional protection from unwanted leaks.

4th Layer:

An amazing, super-absorbent and safe polymer that is up to 10 times more absorbent than conventional pads and holds more than 300 times its own weight in liquid!

5th Layer:

An enhanced flow layer that has been specially designed to prevent reverse percolation. In other words, it conveniently absorbs and moves dampness away from the body.

6th Layer:

An additional layer of airlaid paper to reinforce and lock in the dryness women need and desire.

7th Layer:

A micro-perforated, breathable bottom that promotes the flow of fresh air, limiting and preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.
