How to choose a sanitary napkin
The main points to consider when looking for a sanitary pad are:
Packaging --Are the pads protected against contamination?
Sanitary pads are often kept in places that are not the cleanest environment (under the bathroom sink, on the bathroom floor, or thrown in the purse among all the other things). That is why, in order for them to be protected against contamination, it is important that each individual package is completely sealed. The pads currently on the market are wrapped up in a plastic covering whose sides are just overlapping, without being sealed. Moreover, most panty liners are not individually packed, so once you open the box, they are totally exposed to contamination. From what we know, the only sanitary pads and panty liners currently on the market whose individual package is completely sealed are the Anion Love Moon Sanitary Napkins.
Most boxes or plastic packages in which the sanitary pads come cannot be resealed once they have been opened. Anion Sanitary Napkins come in a package that is completely re-sealable, so it keeps the pads safe, free from contamination.
Materials –What materials are the pads made of?
Many sanitary pads on the market are made of synthetic materials and contain chemicals that can cause irritations and other health problems (some of them will not come up right away, but as the chemicals exposure adds up in time, the risk of your health being affected increases).
The top layer is particularly important because it will come into direct contact with your skin. The best option is a sanitary pad whose top layer is made of cotton and not plastic or some other synthetic materials. Check the label for this. The FDA doesn’t require the sanitary pads producers to include the materials they use on the label, but if they use cotton, they will most probably state it, because this is a very important quality. If the label doesn’t specify that the top layer is made of cotton, then it most probably isn’t.
Anion Sanitary Napkins are made of seven layers of high quality materials, the top one being a soft and comfortable cotton surface. If you want to read more into detail what the Anion sanitary pads are made of you can visit the winalitepro.com site.
Absorbency –Will these pads be able to make you feel comfortable and safe?
Absorbency is probably the most important quality of a sanitary pad. Actually that is why we use them –to keep us dry. Sanitary pads producers know this is a basic quality, so if you read labels, most of them will say something about how great their absorbency is. But is all they claim really so? The women that have used Anion sanitary pads report that the pads lasted about twice as long as other pads they have used, without leaking or creating discomfort.
We have carried out more tests comparing the absorbency level of Anion, Always, Stayfree and Kotex sanitary pads. You can read about these tests and see a lot of pictures on our winalitepro.com/blog. The pictures speak for themselves!
Breathable bottom layer –Do these pads allow air flow?
Why is it important that sanitary pads be breathable? This is a vital characteristic for your comfort and health. Heat and moisture retention create an environment that favors bacterial development. So, no wonder many women experience irritation and rash when using regular sanitary pads. Most of the bacteria that cause women’s diseases are anaerobe, which means they will die within 30 seconds to 1 minute in oxygen. That is why it is so important for sanitary pads to be breathable.
Anion Sanitary Napkins have a breathable bottom layer that eliminates moisture and heat fast, keeping you fresh. Besides being breathable, Love Moon sanitary napkins have a unique quality –they contain a negative ion (anion) chip layer, which releases large quantities of negative ions and oxygen that can penetrate the body easily, killing bacteria and viruses. At the same time, the negative ion chip can radiate far infrared with 4-14 um wavelength, which is the right electromagnetic wave band for reducing inflammation. Negative ions also strengthen immunity, reduce stress, eradicate odor and remove fatigue.Get Your Free Sample!
