Educate yourself on safe feminine hygiene with Veeda
August 28, 20161 min read
Veeda is a 100% natural feminine care product line that was created by two men that realized there was a need for more natural, chemical -free products in Brazil and beyond. Veeda's only ingredient is listed as 100% cotton; that means no dyes, no chemicals!
I really got an education looking through Veeda's FAQ's. There are some scary sounding things in most feminine care products, it seems. So, it's great to have a 100% natural alternative like Veeda. I was able to recently test some of their products, and I was pleased to find their pads with wings did a better job protecting from leaks than any other I've used. They were also very thin, but highly absorbent, and comfortable.
These products my be a little more expensive than you're used to paying, but it's definitely worth checking out!
There is a stigma around periods that overall, they suck - cramps hurt, women get very emotional, and our mood can change like a flick of a light switch! However, PMS doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing if you work with your period rather than against it. Yes, cramps still suck, and it can be difficult controlling your up and down emotions, but once you are able to distinctly recognise your personal menstrual cycle, you can use it to your advantage!
People make the switch to natural products for many reasons, from concerns over specific ingredients, to wanting to use products that are better for the environment. But for some people, in particular those with sensitive skin or chronic skin conditions such as eczema, using natural products can lead to inflammation and irritations.
