Azalea, a new line of natural feminine care products, arrived in my mailbox right on time.
Admittedly, until recently Everything She Wants hadn't given much thought to where the cotton in her panty liners and pads came from. But get this -- did you know that the conventional cotton used in non-natural brands is sprayed with pesticides that could be linked to cancer?
So using Azalea, a product made with 100% organic cotton, is a simple solution to protecting yourself against harmful chemicals.
Named after the flower symbolic of femininity, Azalea's tag line is "take care of yourself." In addition to being chemical-free, the dermatologist-tested products are hypoallergenic and perfume-and-chlorine-free.
Even though Azalea's pads come in a smaller quantity than I usually purchase (Ultra Thin Super Absorbency pads come in a package of 14, $7.99*), they're a wise investment in every woman's health and for convenience hopefully Whole Foods will double the amount per package. Azalea pantiliners come in a plentiful pack of 24 ($5.99), and for tampon users, the Regular Absorbency tampons come in a package of 16 ($6.99).
Look for Azalea at a Whole Foods Market near you (*prices quoted are for New York City and may vary at stores across the country).
