I have been using Always pads for over 15 years, but recently I developed feminine issues that I discovered could be related to the chemicals in the sanitary pads I use monthly. I did thorough research on alternate feminine hygiene products and decided on organic cotton pads. After the very first time using Rael pads, all of my feminine issues immediately stopped. I even went to the doctor to double check and I received confirmation that everything had cleared up. Changing to organic pads has been a positive life changing experience. It solved an issue I had been dealing with for 2 years in only 1 week. What you put close to your most intimate part really makes a difference. I highly recommend Rael, I will buy their product over and over again as I sincerely believe in what they are doing and what their brand has done for me.
