There are many great companies that offer amazing products for women and I wanted to highlight one of my new favorites, L.
L. is a company that offers 100% organic tampons, pads and condoms. Their tampons (specifically) are chlorine, rayon and fragrance FREE! To be honest I didn’t even know those ingredients were in the tampons I have been using! SCARY! I believe their sleek branding, customer knowledge and great cause makes this up and coming company so unique.
“We believe that periods should only end sentences. Not education and opportunity. For every tampon you purchase, L. provides a pad to a girl in need in a developing country.” -L.
In many countries, girls miss school because of lack of access to sanitary pads. L. matches each sale of a tampon, pad or liner with a donation of an organic cotton pad to a girl in a developing country. Today, L. works with over 3,000 female entrepreneurs and has donated millions of products. To learn more about how L. donates pad making machines to empower female entrepreneurs, visit our movement.
In addition to serving their great cause, L’s instagram account is an eye catcher filled with nipple and vagina drawings, women-empowering quotes and representations of women of all color.
Last year they were picked up as a retailer at Target and they’ve been blowing up ever since. I normally stick to the bigger feminine companies when buying tampons but their packaging caught my eye and I couldn’t resist to pick up the sleek and see-through container with vibrant tampons inside.
While I feel the Luna cup is too far of a swing for me, I do support safer feminine products so I paid $1 more (than the bigger tampon companies) and gave L. Organic Cotton Tampons a try.
The applicator for their tampons are not as sturdy and easy to use as the bigger brands but other than that I just felt safer. Like I mentioned, I had no idea that tampons contained chlorine and rayon so I noticed myself not worried about what was in my body.
Overall, I would recommend that every women try this product for themselves. It serves a great cause and is safer than the average tampons we are used to buying.
