Recently, it was announced that U by Kotex recalled certain tampons due to reports of them unraveling inside the body.
If U by Kotex is your preferred brand of tampons, you may be on the hunt for a replacement. Here is a list of alternative tampons that are healthier and more reliable than conventional tampons.
Cora is a brand of organic feminine care products. Cora products are made from cotton that is free from genetically modified seeds and pesticides. The Cora brand believes that feminine care products should be healthy for consumers, farmers, and the environment. For every Cora product purchased, they send feminine care products and provide health education to women in need.
Cora believes that feminine hygiene products are a necessity and not a luxury, so they pay all sales taxes on their products and continue to advocate for tax free feminine care products.
