California startup markets pads made with organic Texas cotton, Korean technology [From the web]
BUENA PARK, CA, December 27, 2017-
In a market dominated by a handful of major corporations, start up company Rael launches its Trial Kit for natural, organic sanitary pads. Widespread awareness of toxic chemicals found in sanitary pads has increased consumer demand for non-toxic feminine products. Rael’s pads are made with 100% certified breathable organic cotton, chlorine free, fragrance free and toxin free.
What product do all women need? Sanitary Pads. Many of these pads have been discovered to contain chemicals, and as a result consumers are becoming concerned about what is in their pads. In 2014, a consumer group called Women’s Voices for the Earth (https://www.womensvoices.org/) commissioned testing of a brand of best selling menstrual pads in the US and the results from the testing indicated that the pads emitted toxic chemicals including styrene, chloromethane, and chloroethane. Although levels were found to be acceptable under federal regulations, it raises health concerns for women who come into contact with these chemicals on a regular basis.
