When you buy 'rice flour' , the pack tells you its rice flour. Coffee cup lids - caution you that the contents are hot. Too much info? Actually, not. The information they provide allows you to make choices. To purchase or not purchase. To leave a hot cup of coffee on the dashboard as you drive - or not!
An informed consumer therefore makes the choice best for them. When it comes to period pads, there is a choice too.
Should you or should you not use plastic products when you have your periods?
If we told you that using plastic period products, over time could possibly, really upset your hormonal balance, cause painful periods, bloating, acne, bad skin, fertility issues, to name a few, would you still want to use them?
If you thought, no, well phew! Neither do we.
But how would you tell the difference, if the ingredients aren't published on the packs of all mainstream products?
Here's the good news. At LUX we publish all our ingredients on our packs. Why? Well because, to us, you matter, PERIOD!
LUX products (Pads, Underwear) are: Made from 100% organic, bio-degradable, hypo allergenic cotton which is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) and by the Institute of Ethical & Environmental Certification (ICEA). Free from plastics, pesticides, rayon, perfumes and other chemicals.
This means that LUX exists, so women can enjoy healthier periods. And now, you CAN make the right choice!
Oh yes, the other good bit. Our planet is our home and really no matter what Elon Musk says, our ONLY home. Doing our bit to take care of it, is important. But what if you don't want to miss school every Friday to protest this matter? What if you can't be part of a climate change rebellion. Well hey! There is an easier way to be part of the revolution.
When you use LUX Period Products you can rest assured you are using products that fully biodegrade when disposed. That means they will break down, never to be seen again. Why does this matter? Mainstream plastic period products, will linger around in the ocean, (likely choking a turtle or giving a baby seahorse a scare) for over 800 years. That's a warrantee that even the chaps at Patek Phillipe, who stop at 700 years, can't beat.
Buy LUX instead. Our products will biodegrade even in salt water. Although we really hope you will dispose our products in the bin once you have used them. Flushing is never good. Don't scare a baby seahorse. Buy LUX.
