Organic Cotton Applicator Tampons by TOTM
Completely plastic-free, organic disposable tampons wrapped in paper!
Periods are natural so your tampons should be too! Conventional tampons contain plastic (which is in your body!), even the string, applicator and packaging are plastic.
TOTM Organic Cotton Applicator Tampons are made with 100% breathable organic cotton - no fragrance, deodorants, wood pulp or chlorine bleach. They are naturally absorbent, soft and comfortable to prevent irritation and discomfort, gently expanding lengthways and widthways for protection.
Hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin 💚, they are made with 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, plus Vegan and cruelty free.
Our cardboard applicator tampons are the first disposable tampons to be individually wrapped in paper, not plastic. They come in a cardboard box.
These organic cotton tampons are available in four absorbencies:
Light: absorb 6g and under.
Medium: absorb 6-9g.
Super: absorb 9-12g.
Super Plus: absorb 12-15g.
When choosing tampons, always go for the lowest possible absorbency. Tampons are associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). TSS is a rare but serious illness that may be fatal. Read and save the enclosed information about TSS and the use of tampons.
Twist the applicator before use.

Why go organic?
"Organic cotton products have a natural softness which is not present in synthetic fabric. It is extremely comfortable to wear in the delicate vaginal and vulval areas. organic cotton is both highly absorbent and breathable and keeps the delicate skin drier and free from irritation than synthetic alternatives" Gynaecologist, Ms Anne Henderson.
Organic cotton is grown without genetically modified ingredients or toxic chemical pesticides.
Why conventional sanitary wear is bad for you and bad for the planet 🌍
Your vagina is one of the most absorbent and sensitive parts of your body so you want to be very careful about what you place next to it or in it.
Conventional sanitary wear has been found to contain non-organic cotton, plastic, fragrance/perfumes, deodorants, dyes and chlorine bleach. It usually comes wrapped in plastic too and can have plastic applicators.
- Non-organic cotton is farmed using toxic pesticides and insecticides.
- Plastic is a synthetic material that is linked to hormone disruption due to use of chemicals such as BPA.
- The 'absorbent' compounds added to sanitary products have been described as “highly toxic when inhaled or ingested, causing damage to your eyes, skin and lungs.”
Rayon is also found in sanitary products. It is a manmade material from cellulose wood pulp. When rayon is produced and bleached, this process produces dioxins as a by-product. Dioxins are linked to several health concerns including the reproductive health condition, endometriosis. It’s also associated with deforestation as the typical process for dissolving wood pulp for rayon wastes 70% of the tree!
