Summary products and plastic materials limit the free flow of air and can retain heat and humidity, potentially promoting the proliferation of yeasts and bacteria in the vaginal area (without forgetting that they are difficult to dispose of and therefore highly polluting).

In addition to raw plastic oils, conventional hygienic absorbents may also contain other potentially dangerous ingredients such as:

  • Neutralizing of the smells
  • Perfumes
  • Phthalates (the latter give the paper of the tampon applicators a smooth and elegant touch)

To give buffers and absorbents that white, pure and "clean" appearance, the fibers are commonly bleached with the chlorine. The real problem of bleaching with chlorine is that this process releases dioxin, a notoriously toxic substance.

In addition, many of today's products for intimate hygiene contain powdered powders Sap (Super Absorbent Powders -super absorbent dust), these are chemical polymers derived from oil that transform gel liquids, significantly increasing the absorbance of the product.
