If you do not want to have any contact with synthetic material, chemicals or unnecessary additives, then Naturcup is your choice, since:
- Since it collects the menstrual flow instead of absorbing it, it does not dry your vaginal flora which remains intact.
- Cotton and rayon of which pads and tampons are made of are bacterial proliferation fields, while medical silicone does not favour such bacterial proliferation at all and this is why it has never been associated to candidyasis, fungi, cystitis or TSS (toxic shock syndrome).
- Pads and tampons use synthetic, tensoactive and plastic products, chemicals, binding substances, resins and fragrances, like chlorine and bleach for bleaching. All such substances cause upsets, irritations and allergies in some women. At this moment research is being performed on their possible implication in pathologies being as serious as uterine cancer.
