Maxim Hygiene Products: Your Period is Natural. What About Your Tampons & Pads?











READ ABOUT THEIR PROJECT- A Gift of Love – their most recent campaign in which they donated a percentage of product sales to a non-profit committed to raising awareness about Toxic Shock Syndrome!!

Eco-Friendly Organic Tampons, Maxim Hygiene Product also make other cotton products, such as: Pantyliners, and maternity pads & even cotton cosmetic puffs!
 But their tampons are just the same as you have always used, and better in fact. Have you seen the new colorful packages of products on market, they are saying "don't be embarrassed" BUT REALLY... don't those bright colors just draw even more attention? And why in the world would your feminine products have to be "pretty" they should be efficienct, functional.... but pretty is one toke over the line, I think.

These products retail for around 3-4$ a package which is probably WAY less than you pay for them at ANY store, PLUS you have the peace of mind you are not putting those harmful chemicals into your baby-maker! They (chemicals, such as: bleach and/or chemicals used on the cotton crops) can cause irritation.. I experienced no irritation or issues while using these products and I like them immensely.
WHY MAXIM?
FYI-
The tampons are available in 5 types.
Applicator  and NON-applicator:

  • Non applicator are available in Regular, Super & Super PLUS, and come 20 to a box.

    • Chlorine Free: Chlorine Free Tampons means we don’t use chlorine bleaching to whiten and disinfect the raw materials used to make Maxim tampons. This makes Maxim Hygiene’s organic tampons dioxin free ,keeping away known carcinogens from our most intimate body parts.
    • Hypoallergenic: These hypoallergenic tampons are irritation free because of the breathable qualities of 100% cotton. That means no more itching, even for those with sensitive skin.

 I love that you have the sanity of not having to embarrass yourself sending the HUBBY or getting them with your kids. INSERT me on tampon aisle in store, kids chattering away.. Baby possibly (probably) whining/trying to climb out of the buggy/insert other embarrassing kid moment here...
"Mommy, what are those for?"
"um... those are just Mommy's band-aids.. for when I bleed.."
"But how do they stick to you?"
"Gigi, this is bad timing.. "*ahem* ..."can we talk about this later?"
"BUT MOMMY!"
"Gigi, please.."
"How do they stick, & can I see them?"
Me.. whispering..
"Gigi they are for Mommies tootie..."
GIGI LOUDLY..
"EW! GROSS!@#?@!! What do you put them on there for?"
*ME SHAKING MY HEAD*


And that's why you should buy them online!

I love that they have a way to keep the tampon from shredding. That would be my major concern for these all-natural products.
