These are great - the best part is that they are SAFE! I'm not worried about putting potentially hazardous synthetic materials inside my body.

My only advice is that they are a little small/less absorbant than what I am used to. I used to use platex gentle glide... I'd say that the Seventh Generation "regulars" are closer to a mainstream "junior" and their "supers" are closer to "regular". I would recommend using one level up from what you are used to with other tampons.

I was excited to get these chemical free tampons, but I was pretty disappointed with the design. They are the shorter kind that gets wider as they absorb which is really uncomfortable for me. Also the string is very thin so it hurts your fingers to pull it out (and you need more force to pull it out cuz it got so wide!). They did absorb very well. So buy them if you prefer the short style that gets thicker, but I prefer more of a slender design. I usually use the regular Tampax so I might like it if this brand made a thinner version...

      No chorine used, not tested on animals, and made with organic cotton? I don't understand how anyone could use any other brand!

      Design not easy to use. Some needed to be thrown away because the applicator wouldn't seperate. Not a total bust but they could certainly use a design upgrade to increase ease of use.
      Still a great alternative to not-as-body-friendly products.

      I am in my late twenties and I had been using the same brand of mainstream tampons since I was 15. Suddenly one day recently I noticed I was irritated for a week after my period ended. It started happening each period afterwards. I put two and two together and figured I was starting to develop an allergy to the mainstream tampons. Sure enough I ordered this brand of natural tampons and overnight pads and the problem went away! I am so very happy I found this product!!! My only gripes are is I wish these tampons were easier to grip when inserting they can be a little tricky. Also I was used to plastic applicators before so getting used to a cardboard applicator was also tricky at first. I found out that I had to use a next size up from what I am normally used to....I used the super tampons for most of my period and the regular on my lightest days...these tampons are smaller in my opinion than the mainstream brands. There was 1 or 2 times I didn't get a good enough grip on the applicator and the tampon went in incorrectly and uncomfortably so I had to start over with a new one but this wonderful product far outweighs any small gripes I have. I will be making a monthly purchase from this website from now on!

        I'm very sensitive and this was the first month trying them. I will be using only these. Never going back to non-organic brands.

        This is a great product ! For once, a tampon that respect the women's body, natural, just doing the job. Could be more compact, difficult to hide in your hand when needed but not really a big deal. Would recommend this to all my friends and more !

          I find it kind of funny to be reviewing a tampon, of all things, but ok. To put it simply, I like this product. It catches and holds what it is supposed to with no leakage. The cardboard is sturdy and the cotton organic. My only complaints are the string is too short and unravels easily and the indented grips on the cardboard are useless. Before use, I push the cotton through the tip of the cardboard a little to make it easier to push it all the way through when it's being used. Seventh Generation makes good products and I recommend this product and this brand.

            I switched from the brand I had used for years (Kotex) after putting 2 & 2 together and realizing they were the cause of my feminine itching. After doing some reading I found most of these products are made with harsh chemicals that can cause a reaction. I decided to purchase an organic tampon to see if that took care of the problem. Sure enough it did. The only down side is the fact they are smaller than other tampons (ie the super would be the equivilent of a regular in the other brands). Other than that they're a god send.

              I started using seventh generation tampons after I found out that most other brands treat their products with dangerous chemicals!! I was really surprised how well this product worked - especially while exercising... i'll definitely never go back to the toxic mainstream tampons!!!!

                Started using these when conventional products began causing skin irritation. All is well with these. I use a liner as well for heavy days just in case, but these seem to do the trick. They were much more expensive at the local health food store, Drugstore.com is a definite bargain for these.

                I tried to switch from Natracare organic tampons to this brand because this brand was a little bit cheaper. Big mistake. The regular absorbancy did not absorb anything! It was half the size of the regular natracare tampon but had the same size applicator. I went for not even half the day and had a problem. I do not have heavy days by any stretch of the imagination. I am going back to natracare. This product is comfortable and easy to use but not going to cut it unless you get super but who knows what size that will be since they were way off with the regular.
