Seventh Generation’s Period Care Shopping Guide

Fem Care Shopping Guide Tampons Pads and Pantiliners

You’d probably be hard-pressed to find any woman who actually enjoys shopping for feminine-care products—or who wants to spend a lot of time comparison-shopping. Yet by some estimates, most women will end up using around 10,000 feminine-care products in a lifetime, which is a lot of time and money invested in a product that most of us simply grab en route to the shampoo aisle.

Sure, it might seem like a pantiliner is a pantiliner, but it’s worth taking another look at the feminine-care products you’re buying. When you think about it, pads, tampons, and pantiliners come in direct contact with some of the most sensitive skin on our bodies—so it’s a smart idea to think about what you’re actually putting down there.

Seventh Generation offers leak-free protection with the ease of mind that comes with knowing what’s in your most personal of personal-care products. We voluntarily list our ingredients right on the package because we believe you have a #RighttoKnow what’s in the products you use. And we also do our best to make sure we’re providing you with feminine products that are suited to your needs and gentle on your body.

So take a little time to get to know what’s in Seventh Generation’s feminine-care line, because we’ve got a whole range of products that offer leak-free protection and other benefits, too.

Seventh Generation Tampons

All of our tampons are gynecologist-tested and free of fragrances, deodorants, and dyes. We use certified-organic cotton so you can stay comfortable and leak-free throughout the day.

If you like the convenience of tampons and are looking for a trustworthy basic, check out Seventh Generation’s Organic Cotton Tampons with Applicator. Our original leak-free tampon utilizes a cardboard applicator for easy, convenient use. Made with certified organic cotton, these tampons offer gynecologist-tested protection that’s free and clear of fragrances, deodorants, and dyes for all-day peace of mind. Available in regular and super absorbency.

Like our original tampons, our Organic Cotton Tampons with Comfort Applicator are made from certified organic cotton that’s gynecologist-tested and whitened without chemicals containing chlorine—but these feature a smooth, BPA-free plastic applicator made with 95 percent plant-based materials. Available in regular and super absorbency.

Because not everyone wants to deal with the fuss—or waste—of an applicator, Seventh Generation’s Organic Cotton Tampons – No Applicator are minimally packaged to make it easy to slip them in a pocket or purse. Made with certified organic cotton, whitened without chemicals containing chlorine, and free of added fragrances and deodorants, our no-applicator tampons offer the same leak-free protection—but without the extra bulk and waste of an applicator. Our tampons are also hypoallergenic and available in regular, super, and super-plus absorbency.

Seventh Generation Sanitary Pads & Pantiliners

Whether you’re looking for a little—or a lot—of absorbency, we’ve got you covered. Made with wood pulp that is whitened without chemicals containing chlorine, our pads and pantiliners are free and clear of fragrances, deodorants, and dyes. All of our pads feature our innovative PureFit™ design, with an enhanced fit that traps fluid away from the skin to keep you dry and comfortable.

For days when your flow isn’t too heavy or you just want light protection, try our Free & Clear Pantiliners. With a cloth-like feel that’s soft next to your most sensitive skin, our hypoallergenic pantiliners are designed to keep you dry and leak-free for all-day comfort when all you need is a little extra security. The adhesive keeps the pantiliner in place for flexible protection where you need it most.

Sometimes you can’t quite get away with a pantiliner, though, which is when we recommend the Free & Clear Ultra-Thin Pads with Wings for flexible protection on days you need it. The contoured wings on our ultra-thin pads provide peace-of-mind protection, a comfortable fit and include adhesive to help keep the pad in place. Made with a soft, cloth-like cover from chlorine-free processed wood pulp, our ultra-thin pads are hypoallergenic and free of fragrances for the coverage you need and the flexibility you crave. Available in regular, upper, and overnight absorbency.

And then there are the days (and nights!) when you’re looking for maximum protection.

Made to provide the coverage you need, our Free & Clear Maxi Pads are free of fragrances, hypoallergenic, and, thanks to our innovative PureFit design, conform to your body. An adhesive is always included on our maxi pads to help keep the sanitary pad firmly in place. Available in regular and overnight absorbency.

Make the Choice That’s Best for You

Ok, maybe you still don’t love shopping for feminine-care products. But we hope we can help you make smarter choices. When you choose feminine products processed without chlorine, you help keep harmful toxins from entering our waterways. When you choose tampons made from certified organic cotton, it helps keep petroleum-based pesticides out of the environment. And when you choose to buy from companies that voluntarily list ingredients clearly on the label, you have the peace of mind that comes from knowing what you’re putting in your body.
