What are TAMPAX Tampons made of?
We understand that you want to take good care of yourself. From the food you eat to the personal products you use, safety is a big factor. Here at TAMPAX, we couldn’t agree more and so not only do we continue to make products with materials that have been safely used for years, we also continuously test our products and materials to ensure this ongoing safety.
TAMPAX products offer a unique combination of materials that give you trusted anti-leak protection and comfort. As you can see from the below image, TAMPAX products are composed of three main elements; the absorbent core, the applicator for easy insertion, and a thread and string combination for removal.
Extensive safety assessments are made to make sure that the millions of women who use our products each day, can do so with confidence. These assessments are reviewed by independent experts including physicians, scientists and health authorities whose job is to oversee tampon safety. Our tampons are OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified, which means that all the materials used have had confirmatory testing for harmful substances.
