What are Daisy Sanitary Napkins made of?
Daisy Sanitary Napkins are made of cotton that is compostable and absorbent, and does not undergo the rigorous bleaching procedure that other absorbent materials undergo. This prevents the presence of dioxins or toxic compounds like lead. The bottom part is a compostable bioplastic, overall creating a biodegradable, compostable, and disposable sanitary napkin.
Where do Daisy's profits go?
Daisy is a non profit organization. Therefore, all profits from sanitary napkin purchases, as well as donations, go towards providing Daisy Sanitary Napkins to underprivileged and marginalized women at subsidized rates, at various menstrual hygiene camps and drives.
