What Gynecologist Say

In my years of experience, I have seen many young women and girls struggling with menstruation issues such as vaginal allergies, skin irritation, chafing, dryness, rashes etc. These are ailments that anyone can directly link to the usage of disposable sanitary napkins abound with many chemicals and plastics. Recent studies have pointed out presence of harmful chemicals like dioxins, phthalates and Volatile Organic Compounds in disposable sanitary napkins. Our skin down there is very sensitive and permeable. Hence, with continuous exposure, these chemicals may be absorbed into our bloodstream and cause cancer, infertility, hormonal dysfunction, endometriosis and many more.

At such a scenario I would advocate all menstruators to use reusable period products like reusable cotton pads and menstrual cups. For menstruators, especially young girls, hesitant with the idea of inserting menstrual cup, I believe reusable pads are better. Personally, I will recommend using Saukhyam Reusable pads.

Saukhyam pads are very unique for its usage of banana fiber as absorbent. Studies have proven the presence of pathogenesis proteins having antimicrobial properties in banana fiber. It is just a myth that reusable cotton pads are unhygienic and harsh on skin. A simple hygienic cleaning is all that is required, and cotton is the most soft and breathable skin-friendly fabric you could ever find.

Put a Period to Period Problems

Period problems is not limited to having irreregular menstruation, cramps, Pre-Menstrual Syndrome(PMS) or any other mental or physical conditions. Accessibility to safe and hygienic period products that are affordable and, convenient to use and dispose without harming people and planet is a critical concern.

During our research we found that many women especially in urban areas are hesitating to switch to reusable cotton pads in fear of leakage, inconvenience in cleaning soiled pads at workplace or because of the notion that reusable options are not safe. The rural women and girls were more concerned with the availability and affordability part.

Saukhyam pad's innovative blend of banana fiber, soft cotton and leak-proof layer are higly absorbent and safe for your body providing you worry-free comfort. It is easy to clean and dry. And some of the pad pack come with a wet bag, which can be used to keep soiled pads to be cleaned later. Through our unique production model, we create satellite production centres at remotest parts of India employing rural women to reach to as many menstruators as possible.
