Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

About the Company


Natracare began in 1989 when founder Susie Hewson got upset after watching a documentary about the growing danger to human health and the environment from dioxin pollution (which results from pulping industries and the bleaching of paper products). Knowing that there was an unconcerned response from the international period hygiene brands, Susie was determined to come up with an alternative. Natracare became the world’s first alternative to conventionally produced menstrual products and today is the global leading brand of natural and organic menstrual and personal care products.

All of Natracare’s products are made from organic and natural materials, and the company as a whole is committed to the highest ethical standards. All of their products are animal-friendly, vegetarian-approved, gynecologist recommended, sustainably sourced, multi-award winning, certified organic, and totally chlorine-free. Plus, all of their products are biodegradable so make you’re minimizing your impact and not leaving pesky plastics behind.

    These really are great pads. I like the size and fit, they remain securely in place, and they are effective. No accidents in the almost six months I have used them.

    All-around great!

    I have tried fabric pads and just found the cleaning process to be very time consuming. These are my compromise. They work great, as good if not better than all of those typical store brand pads with wings. And they can hold a lot, even though they are “normal”. For lighter purposes, I use the liners. Also excellent. I highly recommend Natracare pads!

    Love these!


    These are the one out of two compostable pads I’ve found so far. I use reusable pads most of time but I like to keep this for emergency’s. They are pretty comfy, after five minutes it’s gets better, and I through it in my compost bin with the wrapper and everything which is awesome.

    Awkward pads

    ptaaaf (verified owner)

    Probably better if not quite so long. Wings help them stay in place and not bunch up, but it’s so long

    These are excellent! The wings make all the difference as the ones without them tend to bunch up at times. Will purchase again for sure!!
