Detox Your Period: Part 1 – Natural MaxION Pads by Maxim Hygiene

Detox your period - one womans quest to find the best natural period product

Let’s say you go for a nice long run. You come home feeling invigorated, refreshed, and happy to have done a nice thing for your body. You’re thirsty. You grab a glass, head to the fridge, and pour yourself a nice big serving of Galaxolide (your favorite drink, and a known endocrine-disrupting chemical.) Once you’ve had your fill – you jump in the shower to rinse off. As you step out and begin to dry off, you pull out your favorite bottle of chlorine-bleach lotion, and generously slather it all over your skin. Ah…there’s nothing like taking care of your body, right?

 

Hold up – what the what?!

 

If you think this sounds ridiculous, you’re right. No one would knowingly wipe bleach all over their skin, right? Right. So that’s why the following fact is so troubling: according to a recent report by the nonprofit Women’s Voices for the Earth, traditional feminine hygiene products may use ingredients that are known or suspected endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), carcinogens, or allergens.

Monthly Mission: Make the Natural Switch


The natural switch to healthy products

There’s gotta be a better way. (Spoiler alert: there is.)

One of the most important aspects of taking control of your health is education. Whether you’re 9 or you’re 49 – there is so much going on and vying for our attention. Often times, the most important stuff gets overlooked. Let’s be real – in the midst of to-do lists and schedules and life, it can be hard to justify making time to research healthier choices, much less incorporate that wellness into our routines. We’re here to tell you: this is one of the most important decisions you can make for your wellbeing.

When we start our periods, we often reach for the most convenient product  (and sometimes that means just following along in the footsteps of what our grandmothers, mothers, and sisters have done before us.) But here’s the thing – there’s a better way. Luckily, period products have come a long way since our grandmothers or mothers started their period. And even if that wasn’t the case, what works for them may not work for you. That’s why it’s so important to do a little work to figure out what truly works best for our bodies.
