Our Products

A: WHERE DOES AUNT FLOW SUPPLY THEIR TAMPONS AND PADS?

A: Aunt Flow has partnered with Veeda USA to provide you with high-quality products.

A: WHY DID AUNT FLOW CHOOSE VEEDA'S PRODUCTS?

A: Veeda's products are made from hypoallergenic, 100% natural cotton. Conventional tampons and pads from well-known brands are made from blends of bleached cotton and/or synthetic products. They can contain dioxins from the bleaching process, pesticide and herbicide residues, synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, and dyes. Veeda tampons are 100% cotton and have no chemicals, no synthetics, and no dyes. As a result, Veeda tampons reduce the risk of toxic shock syndrome (TSS), irritation, and allergic reactions.

Q: ARE LEADING BRANDS NOT 100% COTTON?

A: Most tampons and pads from the leading brands contain various blends of viscose rayon, cotton, and synthetic ingredients. It is not required by law for these brands to disclose the ingredients, and many don't. Aunt Flow tampons and pads are 100% cotton, and we put all of our ingredients on the package so you can make an informed choice about what to use in your body.

Q: WHY ARE THE APPLICATORS PLASTIC?

A: Over 96% of women surveyed preferred the comfort of plastic applicators to cardboard. Veeda runs an offset program to minimize the environmental impact of the BPA-free applicators. The tampon itself is 100% biodegradable, even in a landfill.

Q: WHAT IS TOXIC SHOCK SYNDROME?

A: Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is caused by a bacterial infection that can attack the major organs. It can lead to kidney failure, collapse of the lungs, and even cardiac arrest, sometimes in a matter of hours. Fifty percent of occurrences are associated with high-absorbency tampon use.

Q: IS TSS REALLY AN ISSUE ANYMORE?

A: Unfortunately, TSS is still a problem. Fortunately, many manufacturers have reformulated their tampons, and the FDA requires companies to issue certain warnings. However, viscose rayon found in conventional tampons promotes the production of the toxin that can lead to TSS, and rayon fibers can break off and cause TSS even after removing a tampon. The risk of TSS is real, with up to 1 in 700 girls and women contracting tampon-related TSS in their lifetime.

Q: CAN USING AUNT FLOW TAMPONS REDUCE RISK OF TSS?

A: According to many medical experts, yes! There has never been a case of tampon-related TSS with 100% cotton tampons.

Q: ARE AUNT FLOW TAMPONS JUST AS SAFE AND RELIABLE AS CONVENTIONAL?

A: Absolutely. Veeda tampons are FDA-approved to meet all absorbency standards, and handle our cotton from farm to packaged tampon in an FDA-registered, ISO 14001-compliant facility. Our tampons are lab-tested for over 250 harmful chemicals and contain no wood or synthetic fibers, no additives or pesticides, and absolutely no dioxins. Additionally, Veeda tampons expand widthwise to fit your shape and seal in your flow, and have thin strings to avoid leaks.

Q: WHY AREN'T AUNT FLOW PRODUCTS 100% ORGANIC?

A: There's simply not enough organic cotton available to meet our goal of making better, safer tampons accessible and affordable for all people. Organic tampon brands are harder to find and cost 50% more than conventional tampons. Veeda sources 100% natural cotton directly from a global network of cotton traders and clean it with oxygen, not chlorine, for a more eco-friendly product.

Q. DO AUNT FLOW TAMPONS FOLLOW THE STANDARD ABSORBENCY GUIDELINES?

Yes. Light tampons absorb up to 6 grams of liquid, regular 6-9g and super 9-12g.
