Veeda tampons with Christmas wrapping paper

It’s a new beginning and the time when most people love to set their sights high and make lofty new year resolutions. However, there are beneficial health reasons why you should kick-off your New Year with a goal to aim for a rockin’ all-natural 2019!

Why New Year Resolutions Fail

If you’re an ambitious goal-setter, you’re not alone. Tons of people get super amped at the start of the year, but only 9.2 percent of goal-setters achieve their New Year’s resolutions. The biggest reason why intentions aren’t quite met is because many people create a long list of too many unrealistic goals.

Start Small for Successful Resolutions

So, get ahead of the game and consciously set realistic, attainable goals. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with aiming big. But, make your target something you know you can hit. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with starting off small. The best way to make 2019 a healthier year is by changing your lifestyle choices. A lifestyle change isn’t just limited to what you put into your body in terms of what you consume, but should also include what touches your most sensitive parts.

Do You Know What’s In Your Tampon?

Many people are becoming more aware of what they eat in terms of naturally grown, pesticide-free foods. Or the kind of hair care and make up they use without harsh chemicals. So, if you are conscious of what you feed your body and use on your skin, shouldn’t you care about the feminine hygiene products touching your private parts? Because the FDA doesn’t mandate tampon companies to list all of their ingredients on their boxes, do you know what your menstrual hygiene products are actually made of?

Synthetic Materials

Lots and lots of popular tampon and pads are made of synthetic materials. They tend to contain synthetic fibers, dioxins, and petrochemical additives. Even organic tampon companies emboss their tampons with polyethylene, a chemical compound. Yikes! Our skin is the largest and yet thinnest organ and is easily permeable. The skin around our vagina is especially sensitive, thin, and can readily absorb potential harmful chemicals. What’s scarier is that once chemicals touch our skin, it’s immediately absorbed into the bloodstream, heading straight for our fragile organs.

Make Natural A Goal

Not only is eating foods free of man-made fertilizers, growth regulators, GMOs, pesticides, and other toxic additives better for you, so are natural products that come in contact with our skin. Our skin can easily ingest harsh chemicals, so why take that chance with non-natural, fem-care products? Unlike most feminine hygiene products on the market today, Veeda doesn’t have to hide ingredients. Why? Because our tampons, pads, panty liners, and fem-wipes are hypoallergenic, which means that it’s skin-friendly and made without harsh chemicals, dyes and fragrances.

Since statistically, one of the top New Year’s resolutions usually encompasses optimal health, shouldn’t this also include your menstrual health? Take what touches your most delicate parts seriously this 2019, and have a fresh new start by going natural. Your body deserves nothing but the healthiest and best ingredients.

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are chemicals that disrupt or damage your body’s hormone-making organs and processes. This occurs when a chemical mimics a particular hormone, which prevents your body from using or absorbing a particular hormone. This process interferes with the way your hormones talk to each other or hijacks your hormone-producing organs.
