Organic cotton products are completely safe for your body and for the environment!
ENROUSH uses only 100% GOTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON and 100% NATURAL FIBERS.
Conventional products on the other hand use a lot of plastic (up to 90%) and contain chemicals such as BPA - medically linked to the disruptive hormone. They also use “absorbent gels” that are chemically made and toxic. Moreover, through chemical bleaching, conventional products contain dioxins which are reproductive-threatening. All this plastic is harmful for the environment, as conventional pads and tampons take up to 500 years to decompose and are main pollutants of our waters and beaches.
The ingredients that go into your menstrual products are crucial for your health, therefor menstrual products should be regarded as medical devices not as mass-market goods.
Your vagina has the most absorbent tissue in the body and it will literally allow all chemicals in conventional intimate care to enter your body. Conventional products use synthetic materials (plastic linked to hormone disruption), perfumes (highly irritants and another cause of hormonal imbalances), dioxins (made from chemical bleaching that threaten the reproductive system) and many more health-threatening chemicals.
We use only natural ingredients from the core of the products to the exterior and even packaging. And we only use 100% ORGANIC, unbleached GOTS CERTIFIED COTTON for the tampons and for the top sheet of pads & liners.
We put in the core of liners and pads sustainable pure wood pulp, we use biodegradable sustainable back sheet and biodegradable sustainable final packaging.
ENROUSH products have the GOTS certification.
What GOTS stands for? For The Global Organic Textile Standard, world’s leading textile standards certification.
GOTS ensures that the cotton fibers are organic from the raw materials to the fabrication processes into the final product.

Throw organic cotton tampons, pads and liners into the bin or in the compost. NEVER FLUSH ENROUSH organic menstrual products! Because they are super absorbent they will retain water and can clog your drain or get stuck in the sewer system.
ENROUSH organic period care products are 100% biodegradable both aerobically and anaerobically (with or without oxygen). It can take up to 24 months for ENROUSH menstrual products to break down in compost. If you want to speed up the process, try breaking the pads using scissors and combining them to the green compost (veggies, fruits). Compost has to have a balance between green (veggies, fruits) and brown compost (fibers like cardboard, paper, and yes biodegradable menstrual products).
No, do not flush ENROUSH period products, as toilets can handle only pee, poo and toilet paper. Flushing voluminous objects is often more than your drainage pipes and septic system can manage. Besides ENROUSH period products are made of super absorbent natural ingredients (cotton / wood pulp), they will retain water and can clog your drain or get stuck in the sewer system.

Tampons are the best choice if you have an active lifestyle (be it professional or recreational), if you are always on the go or you just feel more comfortable with an inside protection during your period. No matter why you love wearing a tampon just make sure you choose the safest option there is. ENROUSH Tampons are exclusively made of 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton. Simple as that. We also use 100% organic cotton to make the string, bio-degradable polythene for the individual wrapping of the tampon and carton boxes for the packaging. No chemicals & no hidden ingredients.

No. No bleaching, nor any other chemicals are used in the composition of ENROUSH tampons.
No. ENROUSH tampons are made ONLY of 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton from the inside-out. None of the ENROUSH menstrual products contain plastic on synthetic materials.
Yes! ENROUSH tampons are 100% biodegradable and compostable. Out of strong ethical values, all ENROUSH organic products and their packaging are eco-friendly.
ENROUSH organic cotton tampons come in three sizes:
- mini – low absorbency,
- normal – medium absorbency
- super – super absorbency
that offer leak-free protection plus the best organic health care there is.
Choose the size that best fits your flow and your body. Always go for the lowest absorbency possible and make sure to change your tampon every 4 hours.
The difference between our tampons lies in their absorbency power, as mini tampons can absorb between 6-9 g of menstrual blood, normal tampons between 9-12 g and super tampons between 12-15 g. Each ENROUSH tampon (mini,normal and super) expands width wise for extra protection and comfort.
ENROUSH organic cotton tampons come in 3 sizes – mini, normal and super – similar in size with the regular / conventional ones you already know / used to buy. The right size should reflect the type of your flow. Use mini tampons (low absorbency) for the lighter days at the beginning and at the end of your period, and go for the normal (medium absorbency) or super (super absorbency) during the heavy days.
So don’t use a super tampon if you have light flow only because you think it will protect you longer. And don’t go for a light one for fear of getting TSS. The best protection a tampon can offer is when you CHANGE IT EVERY 4 HOURS OR SOONER. If you have an extremely heavy flow either use extra protection – like an organic liner or small pad or just change your tampon every 2 hours.
ENROUSH TIP: within one tampon box (16 pcs) you can mix and match different sizes to fit your flow & lifestyle.
Yes, and even more!
ENROUSH tampons are entirely made of organic cotton, the most absorbent natural material there is. Besides, being made without any hidden toxic ingredients they do not cause infections, rashes or any kind of harm to your body.
Like anything in life, practice makes you a pro, so period after period you will notice that inserting your tampons will come easier and easier to you. Meanwhile, if you’re new at this, here’s a small guide:
1. Wash hands and place yourself in a comfortable position (flex knees or squat).
2. Remove protective foil and unwrap the string.
3. Place your index finger on the bottom of the tampon and hold the sides with the nearest fingers. Gently push your index finger into the back of the tampon, until it expands a little.
4. Relax your muscles and, using your free hand, hold the vaginal opening.
5. Insert the tampon slowly using one finger, aiming the back. If it feels uncomfortable, it may not be in the right position, just push it gently a little more.
6. Leave the string outside and wash your hands.
Throw the wrapping (or any other previously used tampon) in the trash bin.
Change tampons every 4, to max. 8 hours to avoid TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome).
It is advisable to change tampons every 4 to avoid developing TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome). Never leave it in for more than 8 hours.
Using a tampon requires a higher level of hygiene. Although developing TSS is not a direct consequence of using a tampon, if you do not respect the basic rules of intimate hygiene you might be more prone to TSS.
TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) is a rare life-threatening complication caused by bacterial infections and appears when certain bacteria in your system release toxins. It can be linked to the usage of tampons, as the accumulated blood can be a proper medium for microorganisms to multiply. This is why you have to change your tampon every 4 hours – when possible – to avoid developing this type of infections or permit bacteria to enlarge in number, thus causing imbalances in the intimate flora. The symptoms of TSS include sudden confusion, low blood-pressure, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle pain, headaches or seizures.
To avoid this condition, please follow the following hygiene measures:
- Wash your hands before and after you change your tampon.
- Do not wear a tampon for prolonged periods of time. Change your tampon every 4 hours – if possible. Never leave your tampon in for more than 8 hours.
- Never insert more than one tampon at a time.
If you choose to use a tampon at night, insert right before going to bed, and change it first thing in the morning.
Of course you can!
Tampons function the same for both virgins and sexually active people. The female hymen is elastic enough to support a tampon without causing a rupture. Tampons may feel harder to insert when you are a virgin, this is why picking a smaller size and having patience and relaxing while putting the tampon in, will make the process smooth and easy.
ENROUSH organic tampons are tested to fit your body – therefore to be so comfortable you won’t feel them. Besides all our products are hypoallergenic & pH compatible for all sensitive skin types. We only use natural organic ingredients, all our period care products are dermatologically & gynecologist approved!
Simply just because organic cotton is more expensive to produce. Not using pesticides or any chemicals in the process, the crops generate less yield than conventionally grown cotton. So basically it is just a problem of demand versus supply as there is less organic cotton available than regular one thus driving up the price.
Plus, conventional tampons also have a lot of synthetically produced ingredients which are – as we all know – cheap. All these factors together are to be seen in the slightly higher price of organic period products.
Well, it’s your choice entirely. But mind that most menstrual cups are made from rubber and silicone and are designed to contain menstrual flow rather than absorb it.
Although you will find organic cups, before switching to the menstrual cup you have to thoroughly take into account your lifestyle, your whereabouts.
Mind that you should always use lubrication when inserting a cup and that you can develop TSS from it as well.
Cups are reusable, can retain more blood than tampons and can be worn for a longer time (up to 12 hours). Still, there are some risks you have to consider and before switching to a cup talk to your gynecologist if:
- you’re allergic to rubber or latex
- you use an intrauterine device for birth control because it can be necessary to shorten the string attached to the IUD so that you will not pull it out when you remove the cup
- you’ve ever had TSS
- you’ve recently had gynecological surgery, given birth, or had a miscarriage
- you have a vaginal infection
- you’re a virgin and you are concerned about keeping your hymen intact
No, do not flush your ENROUSH tampon nor any other period product, as toilets can handle only pee, poo and toilet paper. Any absorbent material that is flushed can clog the draining system.
Flushing voluminous objects is often more than your drainage pipes and septic system can manage.
Our tampons are carefully produced in Germany, with the highest standards of quality. Production units are all ISO 9001 certified and all of our plants have BRC certifications in safety and design.
