We’re always trying to make sure we live a cruelty-free lifestyle, which is why we were concerned to find out that some feminine hygiene products are tested on animals. This seems absurd to us. We’re not even going to go into the rationale that might be behind this, all we want to know is which feminine hygiene products are cruelty free and don’t involve animals in their production.
In our search for a line of feminine hygiene products that we could use and still keep our ethics, we found Maxim. We were super happy that this line of tampons doesn’t contain anything that comes from an animal and its not tested on animals. We were beyond thrilled to also find out that Maxim tampons are 100% Certified Organic and chlorine free.
For the ladies out there who use tampons during their period, we hope you’re using organic ones. Tampons are usually made with convention cotton, a crop that contains more pesticides than almost any other on the planet. We wonder if the Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) warnings that come on tampon packages have anything to do with the extremely-large load of toxic chemicals sprayed on conventional cotton.
As you decide which organic tampons to use, we suggest you consider Maxim.
Maxim is a family-fun company led by founder, and CEO, Kenneth Alvandi. Alvandi, his family, and his team at Maxim have one main goal – to “provide women with MAXIMum natural protection for good hygiene.”
Alvandi spent 25 years in the feminine hygiene industry learning what women’s needs were when it can to one of their most person experiences. He also considered the needs of his wife and two daughters when coming up with the healthy-living products for Maxim.
Maxim was the first company to offer a complete line of 100% Organic and Natural Chlorine-Free Cotton feminine hygiene products in the U.S. With values that place the body, earth, and health of all living creatures as a priority, Maxim products are responsible feminine hygiene products that we feel good about recommending.
Maxim tampons are safe, natural, and soft. They’re comfortable and effective, and they’re easy on the environment. We love Maxim because the brand keeps the health of animals, the planet, and us in mind. It minimizes harm to all, and for that we’re grateful.
