Growing consumer awareness regarding the benefits of using eco-friendly alternatives has inspired the production of organic feminine hygiene products. Women these days are more inclined to using organic sanitary pads and products as they can reduce the risk of allergies and skin irritation as well as have a lower environmental impact. Sanitary napkin manufacturers are designing novel pads and tampons made from organic materials to meet these requirements.
Manufacturers like Edgewell Personal Care are now using bio-based plastic derived from starch in the production of menstrual pads. In April 2022, the personal care company launched a new tampon product called Playtex Clean Comfort, as a part of its Playtex brand.
