While many questions are raised around the question of the composition of intimate hygiene products, Dans Ma Culotte decided to provide you a lot of information regarding its products.
Dans Ma Culotte offers healthy and environment-friendly alternatives. But concretely, what does it mean?
Cotton is a soft fabric for your skin, that protects you from allergies and irritations. It is also higly absorbent. Dans Ma Culotte sanitary pads meet these two essential criteria.
When the start-up was created in October 2014, we recruited 110 female testers in France and abroad, with dissimilar profiles so as to make them test our first sanitary pads prototypes (daily protection, menstruations, incontinence). This campaign was carried out through an announcement on Facebook and by word of mouth and had several goals:
Then, 70% of the testers filled in a 51-question questionnaire. One of the observation is that disposable sanitary pads (all categories combined) that represent the most significant sales volumes on the market, cause problems of contact allergies, irritations and discomfort and cause fungal infections to around 30% of women. 95% of "irritated" testers stopped to have allergies thanks to Dans Ma Culotte cloth pads.
All the materials that constitute our cloth pads are certified Oeko-tex 100 by our providers. What is this? Oeko-tex is a European label that guarantees the composition of the fabrics is free of any toxic material known so far. The more a textile is in contact with the skin, the more laboratory controls are severe. Thus, our products are produced from fabrics certified free of chemical products, even the colors printed.
