Safety First, For Women and Our Planet

When Susie Hewson developed Natracare in the 1980s, she spent years researching the very best raw materials for the job. As well as important health considerations and ensuring that the products worked, Susie endeavoured to find materials that were:

Ethical – protecting the livelihood, homes and health of workers and communities where crops are made

Environmental – looking after the soil, water and air and ensuring low carbon dependency

Animal-friendly – not disrupting the habitats or health of animals, birds, bees and insects who make up ecosystems that are crucial for our planet’s wellbeing. Using certified organic cotton and accredited sustainable forestry ensures that Natracare meets high sustainable standards.

Natracare was the first ever brand to measure the complete life-cycle of the menstrual pads they produce. The EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) independently measures the carbon life-cycle analysis of a single natracare pad. It verifies the soft impact of our sustainably sourced raw materials, from creation and transport, to the pad being used and finally the return of the pad to the Earth.

We can say with confidence that we are producing one of the most environmentally friendly and effective disposable menstrual products available worldwide. Plastic Free: Conventional sanitary pads are roughly 90% plastic! And every year, over 45 billion feminine hygiene products are disposed of somewhere. Natracare products are made from renewable, biodegradable and compostable materials including organic cotton, bioplastics (made from plant starches) and wood pulp. They can even be composted!

All-Natural Materials: Using high quality natural materials makes Natracare products extremely soft on your skin, and because they are biodegradable, gentle on the planet too. Natracare products are free from all ingredients commonly found in conventional feminine hygiene products: plastic, poly-acrylate superabsorbents (SAPs), petroleum derivatives, synthetic ingredients, latex and perfume.Natracare wipes are free from synthetics, petroleum derivatives, alcohol, parabens, formaldehyde and phenoxyethanol, many of which have been linked to skin irritation.

Totally Chlorine Free: Chlorine bleaching creates a by-product called dioxin, a known carcinogen that poses serious problems for the environment and for women’s health. Unlike conventional feminine hygiene products, Natracare is Totally Chlorine Free. We use an oxygen bleaching process from hydrogen peroxide. This is the safest process for the environment as it does not release toxins into the environment. Using a water and oxygen process to destroy any bacteria in our organic cotton or pulp, results in a pure white material ready to make pads, panty liners and tampons.

Agen prunes are named after a town in France where they were first planted nearly 800 years ago. The homeland of prune, Agen, is the birthplace of this best prune in the world. why not?® Agen Prune is made from this unique variety of fine-skinned, mauve-blue plums with a white bloom (the fine, slightly powdery and waxy layer). It is large and delicately flavoured and scented. The plums grows well with the soil and drying climate of Villeneuvois and Agenais regions. The clay and limestone soil of the Guyenne and Gascogne made this part of the south-west, along the valleys and banks of the Garonne and Lot rivers, the perfect place to produce Agen prunes.

Only prunes from Agen from this geographical area are entitled to the name “PRUNEAUX D’AGEN”. These fruits are exclusively produced in Ente plum orchards planted in this area. They are dried, packaged, and transformed by companies established necessarily in this same recognised territory.

Prune d’Ente in Chile or California are not the same variety as ours. You can find Santa Clara or Stanley varieties. Their taste is not as good as Prune d’Ente produced in Agen prunes area PGI (Protected Geographical Indication). Our Agen prune producer has its own Quality Department with a Quality Manager who visits the farmers before and during the crop in order to control that the plums are harvested at full ripeness to have a maximum sugar level.

We are the ONLY ONE in France to have a REHYDRATION PROCESS BY VAPOR— a minimum processing method with low heat to preserve the wholesome nutrients and fibre of our premium prune.
