    Default Organic tampons?

    I used to use a brand called "de jour" for tampons and they were very comfy. But I can't find them in woollies anymore.

    I don't like the wax kind of film that "u", "libra" etc have on them.

    I was wondering if there are organic or cotton brands that I could buy that don't have that 'coating'...

    The Cottons brand (not organic but 100% cotton) from supermarkets. Or natracare brand from organic sellers or healthcare shops.

    Slightly different, but a diva cup?

    Coincidentally, I just saw this thread after reading this article:
    (Hope it's ok to link!)
    http://www.whydontyoutrythis.com/201...read-this.html

    Basically - cups are awesome, but it mentions some healthier brands of disposable products too. Also sea sponges are apparently an option!
