Natracare Organic Cotton Tampons Super -- 20 Tampons
Make the Switch!
I had stopped using tampons altogether for a while because of chemicals, and then found it necessary to start up again when I started swimming (I still don't trust my feminine cup for swimming). I was using chemical tampons, and just started getting cramps and burning from them. Ugh!
Well, I bought these organic cotton tampons "just to try", and now I'll never go back. I love that there's no chemical reaction- no burning. They are very absorbent, too. Maybe not QUITE what you get from a mainstream tampon, but definitely close enough. These work on my heaviest days.
Now, I'm a big fan of these not having applicators. I like not throwing away a cardboard or plastic applicator PLUS the plastic package that surrounds other tampons. If you are squeamish about your anatomy, you may find this uncomfortable to use... but I'd suggest trying it out. These start off VERY small- just tiny- so it's not hard to insert them. Love them!

They work great for me. Price on vtiacost is better than everywhere else I checked.

Worked Better Than Expected
Like another reviewer here, I'd like to point out that these do NOT come with an applicator.
I read their comment after I'd made my purchase, and was very skeptical of using the product as I'd never used tampons without an applicator.
Low and behold, I found out that these indeed work better than the Tampax or Playtex brands I'd used in the past! I quickly got past missing using an applicator, and feel much better about not throwing more waste out.
Knowing that the product is organic has somehow also made me feel better physically during lady time. I felt less irritable and more active.
My only complaint would be that I wish the packaging were something other than plastic (I'd prefer biodegradable), but I guess to keep them sterile and tight this is what will have to do. Plus not as much waste is being created anyway if they don't have an applicator.

Bad Product Description
No applicator. This is not listed in the product description, but I had previously bought these tampons from Vitacost, only a different count, and they had an applicator. Very annoying. Vitacost needs to update the product descriptions to be more clear.

Excellent Organic Necessity!
I developed abdominal pain from using regular tampons, so several years ago, I began using all the varieties of Natracare tampons. They are a Godsend! The ones without applicators are like O.B. tampons, but so much healthier for our bodies. I couldn't get through my cycle without these! If you haven't switched to organic tampons, please just do it! With all the chemicals we unknowingly put in our bodies, we should take whatever effort we can to avoid it when we can. It'll be so worth it! (I stock up when they're on sale to keep the cost down.)
