7 Top Reviewed Natural & Organic Tampon Brands

What's In Our Menstrual Products?

Hundreds of millions of people use menstrual products every month. Tampons, pads, and menstrual cups come into contact with one of the most sensitive and absorptive parts of our bodies—yet there is an alarming lack of regulation and transparency around production. Because the FDA classifies menstrual products as medical devices, there is currently no legal requirement for manufacturers to disclose ingredients.

That's why we're using (and advocating for) organic menstrual products. Not only are they better for our bodies, but they also have a positive ripple effect on the environment by preventing further pollution through pesticides and chlorine bleaching. We’ve found seven natural and organic tampon brands that are loved by reviewers worldwide. Our time of the month is already tolling, so let’s make it as comfortable and healthy as possible!

If tampons aren’t you’re thing, you can also head here for our guide to menstrual pads made with natural materials. Or, for reusable options, check out our guides to menstrual cups, cloth pads, and period underwear!
