Natracare Organic Cotton Tampons Super without Applicator -- 20 Tampons
I used conventional tampons since early teens, but switched to organic a few years ago. Honestly, I'd never go back even if chemicals weren't a concern. The super I usually use on the middle days of my cycle.
I don't feel like these are any more likely to leak then name brand conventional brands (if anything less likely) and after I got used it, I actually prefer the non-applicator style (they're easy to get in place, easier to conceal, no tell-tale trash and less overall waste). Would like to see higher quantity, more economical options though.

What I've come to love about these organic no-applicator tampons is that they are 'short'. I find that the ones with an applicator made by any brand organic or non-organic tend to be long and they hit my cervix opening. The longer ones don't 'fit' comfortably depending on the angle that I insert. However, with these, they're around 1.5" long and fit perfectly. Easy to carry in your pocket in their thin plastic wrap and keep them sterile. I keep them in a clear glass bathroom dish with a pretty metal lid like candy so that any of my female friends can feel free to use them if they visit and need one...I also just love how reputable this brand is for their organic standards.

They are organic...
The only negative thing I have to say about this product is that it's nearly impossible to break open the individual seals on these tampons. Another reviewer commented on this issue as well. I think Natracare is trying to improve on this issue since I've been purchasing them, but they haven't mastered it yet...something I don't understand! Sometimes I literally have to use my teeth to break open the seal...frustrating!

Not for first time users
If you do not want to go applicator-less, this is a great chemical free option.
If you are a first time user (like swim team girls), then you might want to try something that has a rounder shaped tip, smoother applicator. Hopefully they will improve and make one and then all can have chemical free protection.
