    For nearly four decades, we are exposed to feminine hygiene products and their potential effects. Our skin, especially around the vaginal area, is highly permeable. That’s why it’s always best to invest in a good quality sanitary pad that keeps us free from health hazards.

    Jeunesse Anion Pads introduces you these red flag sanitary pad ingredients you should avoid to keep you safe from their effects:

    1. Synthetic plastic materials – Industrial chemicals such as bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol S (BPS) are used to make certain plastics. These are also used in some sanitary pads as liquid absorbers to improve their functionality and softness. However, studies found that these release chemicals that are absorbed in the skin and higher the risk of menstrual irregularities, disrupts embryonic development, endocrine problems, congenital disability, and cancer.

    2. Pesticide and bleach – We know that sanitary pads are made of cotton. A pesticide is sprayed to protect cotton crops. Pads made of cotton are going to be tainted as well, hence, the use of bleaching products. Pick sanitary pad manufacturers that value your womanhood.

    3. Dioxin – Some sanitary pads make use of wood pulp. Wood pulp undergoes a process of bleaching in order to lighten its color and whiten the pulp where dioxins can be generated. Beware of this highly toxic compound it is even labeled as a persistent environmental pollutant.

    4. Fragrance chemicals – Fragrances are meant to combat the unpleasant smell of menstrual blood. It is composed of artificial colors, polyester, adhesives, polyethylene, polypropylene and propylene glycol, and contaminants linked to hormone disruption, cancer, birth defects, dryness, and infertility.

    5. Dyes – Some manufacturers incorporate dyes approved only for externally applied products that are not supposed to be used on body parts covered by mucous membranes. They’re notorious causes of allergic reactions and irritations.
