Natracare Dry & Light Plus Incontinence Pads
WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
Incontinence and other absorbent hygiene products are some of the worst offenders for causing intimate irritation and soreness.
Research shows that up to 1/3 of women suffer from itching and irritation because of contact with synthetic materials, including those used to make incontinence pads.
The Dry & Light Slim pad has a compressed pulp core to effectively absorb without the harsh chemicals. The pads come without wings and stay firmly in place with a non-toxic glue strip. The pads are individually wrapped making them easy to carry around.
Q: “WHY USE WOOD PULP INSIDE OF THE PADS INSTEAD OF COTTON?”
We use ecologically certified wood pulp as the absorbent core of our pads. This is because the fibre structure is well suited for pads. Pulp from pine wood is 70% amorphous and 30% crystalline, meaning it can absorb much more than a pad which is just cotton.
We use organic cotton for the top sheet of our pads, and this sits next to the skin, acting as a soft natural cover to wick away urine. Our fluff pulp is sustainably sourced from fast growing, Scandinavian pine trees. We mechanically process the wood to make it soft, fluffy and absorbent – we never use chemically processed pulp, such as rayon.
Q: “SOME OTHER BRANDS SAY THEY ARE “COTTON-LIKE” – DOES THIS MEAN THEY ARE MADE FROM COTTON?”
Cotton-like does not mean they are made from cotton. They might not even contain any contain any cotton at all. The “cotton-like” covers are made of synthetic materials. This term is an easy way to trick consumers into thinking that something is made from cotton without actually breaking the trade description laws.
