Veeda Natural Cotton Tampons and Towels

 

This was something I was sceptical about sharing on Krystel Couture, just because it’s a little out “there” and an area I haven’t really covered or considered covering on my blog. However, with that being said, it’s something we need to use every month and I’m always on the lookout for natural alternatives to replace my regular monthly products.

Product Details: Veeda Super Tampons,  Super Tampons with Applicator, Ultra Thin Regular Towels  c/o

 

Made without rayon, wood fibres, additives, chemicals and synthetics; Veeda offers natural alternatives to your regular tampons and sanitary pads. These are 100% cotton and good for the body and environment. These do not contain toxic chemicals other brands will use in their tampons and sanitary pads which can affect the nervous system. Most if not all items that come into contact with your skin end up in your bloodstream and get distributed throughout the body. Some chemicals found in paper tampon applicators such as BPA and BPS disrupt embryonic development and are linked to heart disease and cancer. Furthermore, tampons and sanitary pads are bleached to give the fibres that pristine, “clean” white look; Not only this but they also contain GMOs and pesticides.

 

Toxic shock syndrome is something I always hear about and another health risk and one of the main reasons why I prefer using sanitary pads. Tampons create a favourable environment for bacteria growth and can be caused by poisonous toxins. Veeda prepares their cotton using oxygen-based cleansing agents for a chlorine, dioxin and pesticide-free product. The applicator looks very similar to the Tampax Pearl Complex and wasn’t too uncomfortable but could have been smoother. My flow is very light and I feel these work great but maybe not so much so if you have a heavier flow. The super tampon applicator is pretty thick compared to other tampons I’ve used in the past but does come with inwards curves at the end of the applicator for smoother insertion.

 

The sanitary pads were my favourite from the range because I always try and use pads when I can as I find these more suited to my body as my flows really light and normally lasts for just 2-3 days. The packaging looks really natural and the tampons come in a small cardboard box with an easy flip top and where the seniority pads come in your regular plastic packaging. These are perfect for travelling with or popping in your handbag as the packaging is pretty discreet. I could definitely see myself buying into these again once I finish the products I have and really happy I’ve found a chemical free brand that works for me and my lifestyle! I think next time I will go with the regular tampons however as I feel the super ones are not the most suitable for me.

 

What’re your thoughts on this? Would you switch to a natural alternative?

  • You are so lucky to have such a light flow… I wish mine was like that… Those products seem pretty cool, and while I don’t like using tampons, either, I would love to try their pads xx

  • This sounds amazing. I’m really picky when it comes to this stuff because I have sensitive skin.

    • I would recommend these! They’d be perfect for sensitive skin x

  • These sound great, I definitely think we need to pay more attention to what we’re putting in and around the most sensitive part of our bodies! I’m thinking of trying the Mooncup at the moment, just because the sheer amount of non-degradable waste each month is appalling 🙁 x

    • Thanks Ambi and you should definitely give them a try, you wont regret it! x

  • I now use a Divacup/ Organicup and I felt the same way about posting it- but to be honest we all have that time of the month so it’s completely okay. If I hadn’t switched to a cup I would have definitely checked these out because they sound so much better than the regular alternatives you find in the drugstore!
    Great post 🙂

    • I’ve heard so much about the Divacup and love the idea but I’ve always been scared to try it! I think i’ll be sticking with these for now but I might transition to the diva or mooncup when I feel ready x
