My True Moon Organic Tampons

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

When I decided to live a more natural and organic life, I knew I had to make the changes to my food, cleaning supplies, even clothing. However, one thing I didn't really think about at the time was switching my feminine products like tampons and pads to a safer, organic alternative.

Until recently, I didn't even know there were companies out there offering organic and natural alternatives for women during their menstrual cycle but I am proud to introduce you to one of them: My True Moon!

They decided to start an organic tampon company that:
- Gives girls and women a healthier product.
- Gives parents better ways to help their daughters understand and feel good about being a girl.
- Gives women a way to optimize all 28(ish) days of their hormonal cycle.

You (and I ) would never EAT a plateful of dioxins, pesticides, chlorine and rayon. But SCARY FACT: If you’re using conventional tampons, you’re doing something even worse than that every month. Since chemicals absorbed through internal tissues do not metabolize in the digestive system, they can reach the bloodstream quicker and at more potent levels than eating them.

Ever wonder what your insides are absorbing?

Most major brands of tampons are made with wood pulp and synthetic fibers and use a chlorine bleaching process, which leaves a by-product called dioxin. The FDA “recommends” that tampons be free of pesticides and dioxins, but doesn’t make it mandatory. And the EPA states NO level of dioxin exposure should be considered safe. When you consider that the average woman will use about 12,000 tampons in her lifetime… well, we think it’s a good idea to stick with only 100% organic cotton.
Plus, they also only use cardboard applicators, which helps keep those plastic applicators out of our oceans and off our beaches.

I got to try out The Starter Kit from My True Moon and it contains a great assortment of helpful products for my menstrual cycle!

Complete with organic tampons, their signature case, the essential dry erase tracking chart (with pen), and the 24 page book by REALgirl® Empowerment Camp Creator, Anea Bogue. This is like no other kit you’ve seen. See below for more about the contents.

The Starter Kit contains:

TrueMoon™ Organic Tampons

16 ct. 100% organic cotton, regular absorbency tampons with cardboard applicator.

Moon Cycle Dry Erase Chart

An innovative dry erase chart with pen, to easily track the varying levels of hormones in your cycle and how they affect the way you feel mentally, physically and emotionally.

Tampon Carrying Case

The signature case, perfect for carrying your tampons and pads in style.

I love this carrying case (maybe the most out of everything in this kit) because I have never had a good way to carry my tampons on the go! This is discreet, feminine and great for protecting and carrying tampons!

The Essential Guide to Understanding and Loving Your Cycle

This isn’t your typical instruction book. The 24 page guide written by REALgirl® Empowerment Program creator, Anea Bogue, is chock full of important and inspiring information that most people haven’t heard anywhere else.

First Moon Keepsake

A unique code to redeem your personalized First Moon keepsake – a beautiful piece of art to frame or keep in a scrapbook to celebrate a girl’s first period.

Overall, I love the mission and the organic products from My True Moon and I love that I can now go through my menstrual cycle with a peace of mind knowing I am using safe, organic tampons and not putting dangerous chemicals right into my internal tissues!
