The average woman will use 10,000 sanitary products in her lifetime, most of which end up in landfill or the sea.

Disposable products are usually constructed of artificial, bleached materials, that often wick more fluid away than necessary, and can lead to heavier periods.

Cotton Comforts are made of 100% cotton fabric, and just need to be soaked overnight in cold water before being added to a normal machine wash.

They are available with or without a waterproof layer.

Those with a waterproof layer give protection against leaks, those without are completely breathable and great for women concerned about thrush etc.
