What’s Really in Mainstream Sanitary Items
Absorbing harsh chemicals into your skin can cause build ups of toxins in unlikely places, like inside the womb, for example. Some of these toxins are unavoidable, like from environmental pollution if you live in an urban environment, or some meat produce, but where you would not expect to be absorbing harsh chemicals into your body would be your most intimate of intimates, your vagina or yoni. And yet for so many Goddesses this is the case due to the type of sanitary items they use. When chemicals come into contact with your skin, they are absorbed straight into your bloodstream without filtering of any kind, straight then into your organs. EmpressBody has put together some up-to-date information and facts about what’s going into most sanitary items and offer a solution; EmpressBody’s products. EmpressBody’s range of alternative and holistic sanitary products won’t irritate or upset your yoni health, but more on that later!
Did you know that manufacturers of sanitary pads are not required to disclose the ingredients used in their products?
Furthermore, to give tampons and pads that "clean" white look, the fibers used are bleached. Usually, chlorine is used for this, which can create toxic dioxin and other disinfection-by-products (DBPs). Studies show that dioxin collects in your fatty tissues, and according to a draft report by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), dioxin a serious public health threat that has no "safe" level of exposure.
Reports show that even trace levels of dioxins may be linked to:
· Abnormal tissue growth in the abdomen and reproductive organs
· Abnormal cell growth throughout the body
· Immune system suppression
· Hormonal and endocrine system disruption
Meanwhile, the FDA's official stance regarding trace amounts of dioxins is that there are no expected health risks associated with trace amounts of dioxins in tampons...
The Facts about Conventional and Mainstream Menstrual Hygiene Items:
· Conventional tampons contain pesticides... Cotton crops make up just 2.4 percent of the world's land, but each year a whopping $2 billion is spent on pesticides to spray this one crop.
· Tampons and pads with odour neutralizers and other artificial fragrances are nothing short of a chemical soup laced with artificial colours, polyester, adhesives, polyethylene (PET), polypropylene, and propylene glycol (PEG), contaminants linked to hormone disruption, cancer, birth defects, dryness, and infertility.
· Conventional tampons most probably contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). According the USDA, 94 percent of all the cotton planted in the US is genetically engineered.
Shockingly, one conventional sanitary towel can contain the equivalent of four plastic bags!
EmpressBody product recommendations:
Many of today's feminine hygiene products are made primarily from rayon, vicose, and cellulose wood fluff pulp… not cotton — let alone organic cotton. Rayon and viscose present a potential danger in part because of their highly absorbent fibers. When used in tampons, these fibers can stick to your vaginal wall, and when you remove the tampon, the loosened fibers stay behind inside your body, thereby raising your risk of TSS.
But don’t stress it! EmpressBody has done the research and sourced the safest and gentlest sanitary products so you don’t have to. First things first though, EmpressBody would advise that all Goddesses try at least 3 of our EmpressBody Detox Pearls to help cleans and balance their yonis.
