Natracare Regular Tampon with Applicator are regular tampons for days with low flow. Regular tampon with applicator from Natracare is soft and easy to slide, it is totally biodegradable. You just have to turn it to release it and push it. Most applicators are made of plastic or rigid bioplastics. These usually contain phthalates, which can be absorbed through the skin and cause hormonal disorders. And what is even worse, they do not biodegrade, so they pollute the environment for more than 500 years.
