I have been a big fan of herbs and essential oils for many years, loving the simplicity and effectiveness offered by the harvest from nature, which does not contain chemical elements. After observing the use of these herbs and oils in skincare and body products, on a very hot summer afternoon I started to think – what if they could be applied to sanitary pads? Will it make my period a little bit special?
I had been sharing the same discomfort as many women have during periods – feeling hot and sweaty, sometimes even itchy down below. And I was always self-conscious, feeling embarrassed and wondering someone could smell it, or whether the pad has a leak. If there had been one product that dealt with all these problems but only relied on natural ingredients, it would indeed make many women like me very happy.
A big thank must go to traditional herbalists in Taiwan, as after a year of research and development, Afresh Pads were finally ready for UK consumers in 2016. It is the first sanitary pad that can truly give women the freshness without using any chemical scents but instead natural ingredients extracted from a range of selected herbs, for better and much more comfortable period protection and everyday lives.
With Afresh Pads’ unique design you do not need to change them as often as other pads. As a result, you will use fewer pads, making your efforts environmentally friendly too.
