Oi’s disposable period products, pads, tampons and liners, are made to have minimal impact on the environment and will biodegrade over 5 years. Made with non-toxic organic cotton to be gentle in and on our sensitive bodies.
1. Give your body a break
Your vagina and the skin around it are very sensitive and absorbent, and more likely to get irritated or inflamed. Our organic cotton is grown without toxic sprays or pesticides.
Plastic and toxic chemicals can really do a number on your body. Give your body the natural, plastic-free periods it deserves.
2. Skip the Greenwashing
The vast majority of pads, liners and tampons are made of or contain non-biodegradable single-use plastic. Yes, even those ones that say ‘organic cotton’ or ‘cotton’ still have components of plastic in them which prevents them from fully decomposing — leaving a legacy of plastic in our environment.
3. Non-organic cotton is thirsty
Organic cotton uses up to 90% less water than non-organic cotton. (Non-organic cotton is thirsty!) Organically grown cotton also doesn’t use any pesticides – so there is no leaching of chemicals into the waterways which can have harmful impacts on the ecosystem around cotton fields. Talk about a win-win-win!
4. Chlorine belongs in the pool, not your tampons
You avoid toxins in your toiletries… why not your tampons? Oi products are free from Chlorine bleaching. This is an important difference, as the use of Chlorine in bleaching produces dioxins which are classed as endocrine disruptors that are really not good for our bodies.
5. You deserve certified organic
Oi’s certified organic period products contain no toxic chemicals, harmful preservatives, synthetic additives, or GMO. Because they’re made from plant-based, biodegradable materials, they help you reduce waste and environmental impact.
Great for the planet. Oh and yeah because who wants plastics and toxins inside of them?
