5 reasons why you should try period panties
In recent years, menstrual panties have won over their users, but many menstruating people still have preconceptions about this renewable hygienic protection and do not dare to take the plunge.
Here are 5 reasons that will convince you (for sure) to replace your disposable sanitary protection with menstrual panties!
1. It is comfortable and elegant lingerie
There is an idea that delicate lingerie and periods don't work together. It's true that we don't want to stain our best underwear during our periods, but who said we have to abandon lace, feminine cuts and delicate fabrics?
Menstrual panties offer the best of both worlds: wearing sophisticated lingerie without fear of staining or damaging it!
Inspired by classic lingerie models, menstrual panties are as comfortable and discreet as your everyday underwear. In addition to making you feel comfortable, it will protect you throughout the day, without the risk of leaking.
No more discomfort, no more fear of staining your underwear, no more fear of someone noticing your sanitary towel, or even no more fear of having a leak. Experience your periods freely and peacefully!
2. It is much healthier for your body
For around ten years, we have been alerted to the toxic substances present in tampons and disposable sanitary napkins. These chemical compounds with carcinogenic or endocrine disrupting effects can have disastrous, and sometimes irreversible, effects on our health.
Furthermore, another danger, which mainly concerns tampons, is their misuse. Indeed, prolonged wearing of these would increase the risk of toxic shock syndrome.
Faced with this, menstrual panties are intended to be much more respectful of our body and our health . In this aspiration of well-being and with the deep desire to offer the healthiest possible protection, Soje has focused on the quality of its textiles by choosing cotton fabrics, antimicrobial, hypoallergenic and free of nanoparticles, PFOA, PFAS and BPA, which makes our menstrual panties a high quality, renewable protection that presents no risk.
3. A zero waste protection solution
Did you know that every year, around the world, more than 45 billion sanitary napkins and tampons are thrown into our trash? Made up of several plastic elements, each of them will then take between 450 and 500 years to decompose . These disposable hygienic protections therefore have a notable impact on our environment.
At a time when the environmental situation of our planet is worrying, we are observing the emergence of zero waste lifestyles. As menstrual panties are washable and reusable with a lifespan of several years, they are fully in line with these new practices and allow a significant reduction in waste .
4. It has many practical aspects
Contrary to popular belief, menstrual panties have many practical aspects compared to disposable sanitary protection.
On the one hand, just like classic lingerie, menstrual panties are discreet under clothing, they do not mark or make any noise during our movements. Furthermore, they are odorless.
Another feature that makes them practical is that they do not provide any feeling of discomfort or thickness and do not move throughout the day, as might be the case with a disposable sanitary napkin.
Finally, being easy to wash , they are reusable for several years, without losing their absorbency. No more regular purchases at the pharmacy. You will have a much lighter mind.
5. Period panties are economical
Finally, the last reason, and not the least, is its economic aspect. Indeed, the average price of menstrual panties is significantly higher than a box of tampons or sanitary napkins, however we must not forget that they are reusable for many years.
If we look more closely, for a menstruating person who will have their periods from 13 years old to 50 years old, with a menstrual cycle of 28 days and a menstruation period of 5 days, they will need approximately 5 sanitary protections per day, i.e. a total of 12,058 protections during its life . Which represents a lot of boxes to buy, as well as waste.
For this same person, they will need approximately 4 menstrual panties per cycle. If we estimate the lifespan of a pair of panties at 5 years, she will need a total of 30 period panties during her lifetime . Which represents a significantly lower investment than disposable hygienic protection.
Menstrual panties therefore present strong arguments in their favor. Whether you want to feel more feminine and comfortable during your period, whether you want to pay more attention to your body and your health, or whether you want to consume more responsibly, menstrual panties are THE solution to consider.
It's time to abandon preconceived ideas about period panties and adopt this hygienic protection that is more responsible for our health, but also for that of our planet.
