Puristics tampons are made from cotton that’s certified organic by the Institute for Marketecology (IOM). The IOM It is a standard for organic producers who work outside the European Union but wish to be certified as meeting the same standards for purity as the Regulations of the European Union.

The cotton in these tampons was grown without pesticides or herbicides, irradiation or genetic engineering. They also were grown without the use of sewage sludge. I bet you didn’t know you had to worry about that until now!

The tampon itself, as I noted above, is 100% certified organic cotton, and the string is made from cotton sewing yarn. The cardboard applicator is flushable and has a soft, rounded tip for easy insertion. This tampon also has a security veil to eliminate any fiber shedding during use.

    WORST EXPERIENCE EVER. In many years of using tampons, such as OB and store brands, this was the only brand where the string completely detached, leaving the tampon stuck inside me. I almost had to go to urgent care and was also worried about getting TSS. This was embarrassing and stressful to say the least! I will spare everyone more gory details of what happened, but perhaps this is why the product was on sale at Big Lots (which is where I bought them). What a great idea of having organic cotton materials, but the product itself was a total FAIL. I will never buy or use this Puristic product again.

    + PROS: Environmentally friendlier
    - CONS: The string may DETACH and leave you in a medical emergency!
