Back in May, I blogged about my preference for organic tampons and why organic feminine protection is so important. After many of our readers got a hold of the information in that post, I received numerous emails and social media comments from women who had no idea the tampons, pads, and liners they have been using since the onset of puberty were so dangerously polluted and linked to feminine cancers, like uterine and ovarian.
Education Save Lives:
The Gorgeous Girl's Guide was built on the simple, yet, imperative premise that beauty is not a product, but a lifestyle. We aim to educate our readers as we become more educated, and share some of the many, many ways women can maintain their beauty by first maintaining their health. No matter your genetics, a sick woman will lose pieces of her beauty and the sicker she gets, the duller her skin, hair, eyes, nails, and overall quality of life becomes. We don't want you sick; we want you well and are constantly looking for bits and pieces of information to share in order to help keep you well.
We recommend that you do the research, as well. There is world of knowledge at your fingertips and we encourage all our Gorgeous readers to search for answers. Most everything you have been consuming since you were a child is poisonous, unless you were lucky enough to grow up in an organic, non-toxic household. Question everything in your pantry, cabinets, refrigerator, and freezer. Question everything on store shelves and educate yourself; it will save your life.
A Brand We Trust:
It is no secret that The Gorgeous Girl's Guide supports The Honest Company and their bevy of products for home, bath, body, and baby. As this site's founder, I purchase and test each recommended product in my home and have now made a habit of giving these products as gifts.
Over the past couple years, I have found that the consistent use of products from The Honest Company has helped detox my home and family. Now, when we are in the presence of chemicals and heavy perfumes, we itch and sneeze. It is so very obvious how dangerous these chemicals are!
Feminine Protection We Believe In:
The Honest Company's brand new line of feminine protection is everything we expected it to be. Here's what we love about these tampons:
- Made with naturally absorbent, breathable 100% organic cotton
- Comfort fit design gently expands width-wise for a more natural and secure fit, and enhanced leak protection
- 8 specialized grooves regulate even expansion and enhance absorption
- Cord is woven, not glued
- No fragrances, deodorants, rayon, or synthetic super absorbents
- Regular and Super Plus absorbencies also available
- Comfort Fit
- pH Compatible
- 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton
And there's more. Honest was sure to leave out the icky things you'll find in the most popular brands like:
- glues & adhesives
- pesticide residues
- chlorine or chlorine dioxide processing
- polyethylene (in tampon)
- synthetic zeolites
- alcohol ethoxylates
- glycerol esters
- antibacterial agents
That's a long, long list! But not only does Honest take care of its customers, but they also take care of women in need around the world. According to the site:
When you buy Honest feminine care, we give feminine care to young women in the U.S. and in Uganda, to ensure they do not miss school due to their menstrual cycle.

A Quick Note:
According to The Honest Company's website, at the bottom of the page, it is not recommended you flush these tampons. I am not listening to that and am assuming this is verbiage carried over from the liners and pads.
