Here are 7 reasons to choose 100% cotton period products

Better Breathability

You wouldn’t wear polyester tops on a hot summer day, right? So why would you down under? Cotton naturally helps remove and absorb body moisture, therefore in the form of a pad cotton draws heat away from the skin and keep it cool and dry, allowing skin to breathe.

No Irritation Problems

Synthetic tampons and sanitary pads can actually create environments where infections such as thrush and vaginitis can thrive. When women develop these problems, they are usually told by a doctor to wear cotton underwear, but continue to wear synthetic period products. Using 100% cotton pads and tampons allow natural airflow that can help prevent these intimate issues.

Great for Sensitive Skin

Due to cotton being more breathable, and gentler on intimate skin, this makes them perfect for those who suffer with sensitive skin especially during periods. As mentioned in the opening statistics over 50% of women experience irritation down there during their period, because they think that it’s normal, when it most definitely isn’t. Using 100% cotton products at a time when your body needs it most can remove irritation during the time your body is already on edge!


Cotton helps to keep the natural pH value of the skin balanced. 100% cotton products have been proven to prevent and cure vaginal irritation with 95% of women being irritation-free within 3 months!

Super Absorbent

Did you know that cotton is able to absorb up to 27 times its weight in liquid, which will definitely come in handy in period products!


You know that feeling when you put on a really soft, 100% cotton t-shirt? Imagine that but as a sanitary product, giving you the comfort you deserve during your period.

Free from Chlorine, perfume and SAP

Synthetic tampons and sanitary pads can be bleached white using chlorine dioxide, which can be toxic. With cotton being a natural fibre, this means that there is no chlorine in any of Sanature’s products. 100% cotton = 100% natural.
