The biggest reason we have an issue with these so called organic tampons is not only can these ingredients change the Ph of the vagina, these toxins can leach into one of the most absorbent areas of a woman’s body. Toxins which can be labeled as “forever chemicals.” These forever chemicals are also called PFAS which stands for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances and are used as stain-resistant, water-resistant, & oil-resistant chemicals in commerce. They are linked to serious health effects and have been used for decades inside consumer products, as manufacturing aides, and inside building materials. 

PFAS “forever chemicals” are problematic to human health and the environment. They are considered ubiquitous, persistent, and toxic. Many of these chemicals can last for years or decades in our bodies. Therefore, it’s imperative to reduce the amount of PFAS you are exposed to from food, water, and personal care products such as tampons.
