Menstruation is a fundamental function of the reproductive system. Practicing good menstrual health habits helps prevent infections and other serious conditions. Unknown to some, poor personal hygiene and the use of low-quality sanitary pads contribute to said infections.
When it’s that time of the month, what should one look for in their sanitary pads?
The texture and feel of the pad plays a huge role in keeping the wearer comfortable during those uncomfortable days. Jeunesse Anion pads, for example, are made of super soft virgin pulp and non-recycled cotton material that guarantee an extra boost of softness. It is free from the plastic top that causes chafe and rashes.
Speaking of softness and cotton, it’s vital to know that plastic suffocates the pad. Bacteria multiply more rapidly in an environment that has less oxygen. It’s best to choose pads that allow maximum airflow which helps counter that icky, wet feeling. Air permeability eliminates unpleasant odor, too.
Choose a brand of pads that is free from synthetic materials rayon and polyester, as well as potent chemicals such as fragrances, chloromethane, chloroethane, chloroform, acetone, and toxic industrial adhesives. While perfume might smell nice, it is more dangerous than one thinks. Read the label to know more.
Pads made of highly absorbent materials are vital during red days. But it doesn’t mean one has to compromise comfort. A brand that does the job well while staying as thin as possible comes in handy. Jeunesse Anion pads turn liquid into gel to ensure that no leakage and stains occur even at full capacity.
It doesn’t hurt to have a sanitary pad whose packaging is resealable. Jeunesse’s packaging is made of resealable aluminum foil for double protection from contamination.
Jeunesse is available at drugstores and supermarkets nationwide.
