Freda provides the highest-quality, 100% organic cotton tampons and eco-friendly pads, free from the chemicals and perfumes you find in popular brands. If you’re like us, you’ve never really thought about what goes in your tampons. An average woman uses 12,000 tampons during her life in her menstrual cycle so it’s worth checking. We did and found that big brand manufacturers aren’t actually required to give a full disclosure of what’s in their tampons. What we do know is that generally tampons are made from cotton, rayon and synthetic fibres. They contain odour neutralisers, dyes, pesticides and perfumes, and an undisclosed mixture of chemicals that have been linked to allergies, rashes and endocrine dysfunction. Conventional tampons also contain GMOs, and if we’re concerned about GMOs in our food we should also be concerned about using a GMO tampon! The vaginal wall is permeable, allowing toxins into our bloodstream. Wondering about what goes into your tampons now? Our tampons only have one ingredient : 100% CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON
Another month, another period, another trip to the same shop for the same mass-market pads and tampons you’ve been using since you were 13. There’s got to be a better way. Here’s an idea… You tell us exactly what you need, we send it out. Done. And since no two periods are alike, we don’t have a one-size-fits-all solution. Best of all, you don’t even need to be at home, our standard deliveries are letterbox friendly.
Freda is a company with a conscience. We care about you, the environment and women around the world who don’t have access to sanitary pads. Our driving force is to start a meaningful conversation. We want to be a gathering place for a growing collective of conscious women who aren’t afraid to use their voice or their purse to change the way things are, and seek a better way – both for environmental sustainability and universality of access to sanitary pads.
