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.
