Did you know that the FDA doesn’t have any mandatory safety guidelines for the materials used in tampons? INSANE right?! For a product that so many women use on a daily basis this is just craziness if you ask me. That is exactly why it is important to do your homework to find a company that you trust that creates tampons that fit your own standards. And that is exactly what I have found with Cora organic tampons!
So why should you care what’s in your tampons?
Many tampons contain non-cotton fibers like rayon, viscose, and wood fluff pulp that can shed from the tampon when inside the body. Have you ever heard of toxic shock syndrome (TSS)? If you haven’t, it’s when the fibers that are shed inside the body collect bacteria and can cause this life-threatening complication.
Not only that, but the FDA does not require manufacturers to disclose the ingredients, the chemicals, that they use to create the tampons. One of the harmful ingredients that are not monitored is called dioxin. Dioxin is a dangerous environmental pollutant that can live for a long time in the body and can be absorbed into the body’s fatty tissue. The effects of this absorption can result in skin lesions and altered liver function as well as impairment of the immune system, endocrine system, and reproductive system.

Wanna know why I have been loving Cora?
Not only are Cora organic tampons easy to use and absorb beautifully, but the packing and carriers of the tampons are so chic!
When you order Cora tampons they come with a little black clutch made of vegan leather that stores your tampons on the go. If that is not your style and you would rather carry them individually, you can also store each tampon in a stowaway. A stowaway is a lipstick-sized cardboard capsule that always you to grab your tampon out of your purse without feeling like you have to hide it in your jacket. Both options are so cute and fit easily in your purse!
So how do I get started with Cora?
You first go to Get Cora where you can opt to get a customized free trial of tampons! It is on this page that you choose your preferences based on your need, such as quantity and absorbency. You start your free trial and then if you maintain your account it will automatically turn into a full paid subscription of their amazing organic tampons.
What are the options?
There are three options! This first package is paid monthly, the second option is paid every 3 months, and the third option is paid yearly. Depending on the quantity and the billing plan, the price can range from $7 – $18 per month. Not bad right?! In my opinion, paying the extra dinero for amazing organic ingredients that protect your health and peace of mind is well worth it.
