Eschewing the traditional chemical-laden plastic packaging still used by some manufacturers of sanitary napkins, Nannocare’s concern for the world we share led them to introduce non-toxic, environmentally friendly, biodegradable packaging and wrappers in 2019.
NannoPad wrappers are made of bioplastics, which are derived from organic sources such as starch, cellulose from trees, straw, and cotton, from vegetable fats and oils, and from other renewable resources.
Unlike conventional plastics made from fossil fuels, bioplastics do not produce a net increase in carbon dioxide gas when they biodegrade.
Bioplastics do not contain toxic chemicals such as dioxins, styrene, or petrochemical additives, nor do they contain bisphenol A (BPA), a hormone disrupter often found in traditional plastics.
Bioplastics often take only three to six months to fully biodegrade, compared to traditional plastics which can take several hundred years to decompose.
The use of bioplastics helps to relieve the tremendous burden of durable plastics clogging our landfills and oceans and threatening both land and marine life. The global warming impact of the manufacture of bioplastics is often significantly less than traditional plastic.
What is NannoPad®?
NannoPad is a sanitary napkin embedded with all-natural materials that emit a far-infrared wavelength, the same electromagnetic wavelength that is naturally emitted by the body.
This energy improves micro-circulation to alleviate menstrual discomfort.
The effectiveness of far infrared energy in alleviating symptoms associated with pain has been confirmed in multiple independent studies and in user testimonials.
Not only are NannoPads made of 100% OCS-certified organic cotton, they are hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial and contain no chlorine, pesticides, dyes, or fragrances. Dr. Lisa Benest, M.D., a diplomat of the American Board of Dermatology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, confirms that this all-natural pad contains “no materials that would cause skin irritation” and that “they are all-natural”.
NannoPad’s thin yet ultra-absorbent layers lock in heavy flows and help with odor control.
Nannocare Walks the Walk
Fulfilling its mission to present women with healthier alternatives for menstrual discomfort, Nannocare has made NannoPad available online and in retail outlets in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
Nannocare products continue to be a favorite among women who are seeking a thin, highly absorbent and all-natural relief from menstrual discomfort.
Nannocare also offers a subscription service for its product for customers whose busy lifestyle may overlook replenishing their supply of menstrual hygiene products and customers who have irregular cycles.
Mindful of its social obligations, Nannocare initiated a program in December 2018 to donate millions of pads annually to organizations that are in need of personal care items including women’s centers, shelters, schools, and others.
