Soft and discreet, Natracare Dry and Light pads are the first of their kind; made from totally chlorine free, sustainable and natural, biodegradable materials that are also free from petroleum-derived super absorbents and plastics which are found in many other products offered to women requiring extra protection each day - it is of concern that such synthetics and chemicals are just what we should make every effort to avoid when experiencing the effects of bladder weakness. Natracare, however, offers the added comfort of a 100%, pure cotton cover next to your skin, this means that you experience comfort and dryness whilst your skin is allowed to breathe naturally. The double layer of absorbing cellulose is encased in a soft, certified organic, 100% cotton cover. For extra peace of mind, there is a leak-proof backing made from totally biodegradable and compostable, plant-derived materials, so there is a reduced burden on the environment when the pad is disposed of. For your convenience, the pads are individually wrapped in a small purse pack which, like all Natracare products, is also biodegradable and compostable.
