Organyc claims that their line of feminine products is the first to be entirely made of 100 percent biodegradable and compostable organic cotton that’s also not bleached with chlorine. They feature a 100 percent cotton absorbent core, a security veil to prevent any chance of fiber shedding during wear, and sewed on string.
The applicator has a soft, rounded tip for comfort during insertion, so even though it’s made from biodegradable cardboard, it’s designed to feel more like a plastic applicator, which many women find more comfortable to use than cardboard ones.
Customers say that this applicator is as smooth as plastic. It’s easier to insert if you twist the applicator before using it. There’s a small notch punched through the two tubes that holds the applicator together; if you twist the applicator it frees the two halves from each other and makes it easier to insert the tampon. Several customers say that these are higher quality than many other brands of organic tampons.
