List of products by brand Natracare
Natracare range of organic cotton tampons and organic and natural pads
Natracare was created in Britain in 1989 by Susie Hewson, who developed own range of tampons and pads as a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine bleaching, the extensive use of pesticide spraying on conventionally grown cotton, and the use of rayon and other synthetics in feminine hygiene.
Natracare became the first in the world range of organic and natural feminine hygiene with its certified organic cotton tampons and totally chlorine-free sanitary pads and panty liners.
Natracare range of organic cotton tampons, sanitary pads, panty liners, nursing pads and wipes are unique in being made from only certified organic and natural, sustainable and renewable materials that are biodegradable and compostable.
Natracare’s environmental commitment is reaffirmed by becoming the first brand to achieve a scientifically validated, independently accredited life cycle analysis in the form of an international Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) in 2008 as well as achieving an SIS green labelling accreditation. Susie Hewson obtained the Women in Ethical Business award in 2008 and in 2009, achieved an Ethical Accreditation, being congratulated on achieving an outstanding Ethical Accreditation Index score of 92, placing Natracare at the top of the table for the Sanitary Protection sector.
