Amazing how they found a way around that little legal glitch of not having to reveal chemical contents - never thought of those products as "medical devices" before!

Ladies, I warmly recommend switching from pads and tampons to a menstrual cup. No toxic chemicals, saves you a lot of money, ecological (one will last for at least 5 years), hygienic. Douches, sprays etc. are not only unnecessary, but even harmful - your vagina has a mechanism to clean itself, and a daily shower is enough to keep all your body parts nice and clean. Believe it or not, but douches are virtually an unknown phenomenon outside America. And vaginal deodorants? Jesus H. Christ, I say. Your vulva isn't supposed to smell like a flower meadow, and unless someone has his / her nose up there, s/he is certainly not able to tell if you've used a deodorant or not. With all the douches, sprays and deodorants, no wonder the very same companies sell you also anti-itch creams...

Don't give your hard-earned money to companies that continue animal testing (e.g. Johnson & Johnson) and poison you with toxic chemicals. Buy a menstrual cup for the sake of Mother Nature and yourself.
