Have you ever wondered what exactly tampons are made of?
Jordana Kier and Alex Friedman did. And when they couldn't figure it out, they created LOLA, a tampon delivery service that formulates its products out of 100 percent cotton -- and nothing else.
The company, which launched yesterday, allows women to order tampons online for $10 per box with the option to mix and match sizes to create the perfect personalized period-care system.
In addition to the body-friendly cotton, the applicators are made out of BPA-free, recyclable plastic -- a gift both to the environment and our bodies.
Kier told ELLE,
The more we started doing research around the ingredients [in conventional tampons] and what was actually in the products... the more we realized we couldn't figure it out. ...[LOLA is] about making women more conscious about everything that they are consuming.
After ordering the tampons at mylola.com, customers will receive their deliveries within a few days. You can also set up a monthly shipping plan, so there's no need to reorder each time Aunt Flo comes to town.
And there's a bonus: The tampons are delivered in discreet, minimalist packaging. That's a relief for women who don't want their cycles broadcasted to the entire house.
Head to the site to learn more and stock up for your next period; you'll be glad you did.
