A PLASTIC FREE PERIOD
CHOICE FOR BODY,
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. No Chlorine is used to bleach the cotton.
Plastic and toxic chemicals can really do a number on your body. Give your body the natural, plastic-free periods it deserves.
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.

TOGETHER WE’VE STOPPED
KILOS OF PLASIC FROM EVER HAPPENING.
We spend a considerable effort to minimise the packaging of our products. It’s always a balance to ensure the product is protected through the supply chain so it reaches you, the consumer, in good condition. A great example is our menstrual cups: the carton is as small as we can make it, minimising the packaging. Plus, we use vegetable inks and recyclable cardboard throughout our packaging, and all is biodegradable!
Our Bladder Care range uses an innovative naturally derived Bio-SAP, a plant-based Super Absorbent Polymer. Bio-SAP is not only biodegradable but also has a smaller carbon footprint as it does not contain any petrochemicals. It provides protection for our consumers against leaks and at the same time protection for our precious environment.
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.
Oi’s disposable period products use organic cotton for its top sheet and core and Oi’s adult (bladder) care products have an organic cotton top sheet to ensure that the parts that go in and next to your body are non-irritant, breathable, comfortable and biodegradable.
ZERO WASTE ALTERNATIVE
The Oi menstrual cup is a zero-waste alternative to tampons and pads. It is reusable and can last for three to five years. No more monthly waste from using tampons or pads. It is made of medical grade TPE making it softer and more pliable.
