What's in your period care products?

Have you ever thought about what's in your feminine care products?!  I didn't until a few years ago when I began to delve into the world of natural products.

During my research for cleaner products, I learned a lot about what's in our products and what was unhealthy, and it went far beyond skincare and haircare. I learned that most of our feminine care products like pads and tampons are loaded with bleach and other harmful chemicals that we wouldn't want in our feminine care products if given the choice.

These days, we have become much more aware of what is in our products, whether it be our food, beauty products, supplements etc. We are much more educated consumers than in the past. We now know for example that things that we put on our skin are absorbed by our skin (think the nicotine patch). So, reading labels and learning about ingredients are key to our health.

Luckily, two men realized this and they set out to create eco-friendly, natural feminine care products WITHOUT all the harsh chemicals and also make them affordable and accessible, andVeeda was born. They also give back to communities, supporting organizations that protect the environment and advance family health and wellness. I love what this company stands for!

With much more emphasis on our health these days, we make better decisions about what we decide to spend our hard earned money on. As unhealthy chemicals that are in our products become commonplace terms that we recognize, we can choose to stay away from them. That is if we can find them and afford them!

Thankfully,Veeda has come along and made affordable, healthy feminine care options for us that are also accessible.

Veeda's Goal:

"is for every woman to be informed about, and have access to, affordable and safe feminine care. Our hypoallergenic, toxin-free, 100% natural cotton tampons, pads and liners are widely available at a fair price. For those who can’t afford to buy, we provide donations via Project Everywoman and the 360° Care Fund, funded by a percentage of Veeda sales and profits. When you buy Veeda tampons, pads and liners, you get comfort and effectiveness that rivals top selling brands; healthy, hypoallergenic cotton to prevent irritation and toxic reactions; and a company that cares."
