Most other tampon applicators are made from plastic, which contain phthalates that can be absorbed through the sensitive skin in the vagina and disrupt the endocrine system. Not to mention they also contribute to the amount of plastic waste in landfill and in our oceans!
The Natracare applicator is made from biodegradable, chlorine-free, easy-glide cardboard with a smooth and rounded design, so is a good option for those who are not familiar with using tampons.
Natracare tampons with applicators are available in;
- Regular / Normal (16) | Absorbency
- Super (16) | Absorbency
Applicator vs non-applicator
Unlike the applicator style, non-applicator tampons are inserted using your longest finger, which tucks into the flared end of the tampon to enable the tampon to be pushed into place. Deciding between an applicator and non-applicator tampon is generally a matter of personal preference.
About 20% of women naturally have a retroverted uterus (the uterus tilts back towards the spine instead of forwards) and using an inflexible applicator can cause pain during insertion. A Natracare non-applicator tampon is eased into the correct position using the index finger.
Warnings & Precautions
Tampons are associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) a rare but serious disease that may cause death. Read and save the enclosed information and use the minimum absorbency necessary for your flow.
