    Recently, there have been many controversies surrounding organic pads and tampons. People submit its material composition for inspection, and the negative impact of discarded plastic pipes on the environment has become a hot topic of discussion. Everyone is talking about organic pads and tampons-men, women, teenagers, environmentalists, doctors, naturalists. New products such as menstrual cups are pouring into the market, trying to take customers away from organic pads and tampons. It seemed that overnight, the tampon became stigmatized, and the public began to regard it as a "defective product of modern invention."


    However, organic pads and tampons have a long history. Evidence shows that as early as ancient Greece, women had begun to use homemade equipment similar to organic pads and tampons.

The person swelled in embarrassment.


    In the age when mothers grew up, female products were still little secrets, and they had to use them to hide the body functions that made them ashamed. But in ancient Greece, women did not have similar social pressures, and they did not hate their natural functions. Therefore, before saying goodbye to organic pads and tampons, you might as well learn about the development history of 9 major organic pads and tampons that you may not know.
