Natracare continues to protect women’s health and the environment with new product lines at Expo East 2006

NEW YORK –Natracare is continuing to defend women’s health by raising funds for the Pink Ribbon Campaign and Breast Cancer with their Organic Cotton Wipes, and make advances in environmentally responsible feminine care with their new Dry & Light Incontinence pads and New Mother product line. Natracare will be previewing their new lines in the new products showcase at Booth 833 at Natural Products Expo East, October 6-8, 2006.

Consequences of feminine exposure to parabens and dioxins are becoming an increasing concern, and Natracare’s products, which are made only with natural and organic ingredients, are helping to reduce women’s contact with these trigger elements that can seep into body tissue through skin contact. Going even further to promote feminine health, from this fall Natracare is linking their Organic Cotton Wipes with Cancer research and cancer care groups in order to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research and Cancer care. Natracare’s Organic Cotton Wipes are made from certified organic, 100% pure cotton and ingredients such as certified organic Chamomile and Calendula. They are free of parabens, petroleum derivatives and synthetic perfumes.

“Parabens, which have been flagged for caution because of their potential link to breast cancer, are extensively used to preserve toiletries and wipes used everyday by women,” said Susie Hewson, founder of Natracare. “Parabens are even used as preservatives in tampons that are perfumed and lubricated. Toxic dioxins are by-products also created during the manufacturing process of chlorinated products like sanitary pads, panty liners and tampons. Dioxins, which are not only harmful to the environment, but also to the women who are exposed to them every time they use these products, should be avoided whenever possible.”

Natracare is initiating another new and unique feminine care category with the introduction of their new Dry & Light Incontinence pads. To protect women suffering from light bladder weakness, these innovative pads are made from biodegradable, sustainable cellulose materials, are Totally Chlorine Free (TCF), and free of plastics, polyacrylate super absorbents and other synthetic materials.

Offering the unrivaled health and safety features of their environmentally-friendly feminine care products to new moms, Natracare’s new mother product line includes Natracare new mother Natural Maternity Pads and Natural Nursing Pads. Each new mother product is created from all-natural materials, in order to maintain the health and safety of mom and baby.

“Many popular brands of feminine care products and maternity and nursing pads contain chlorine-bleached materials, petroleum-derived super absorbents and plastics and other synthetic materials, including paraben preservatives,” said Hewson. She concluded, “These materials and ingredients have been linked to dermatitis, Allergic Feminine Irritation (AFI), breast cancer, and other serious health risks.”

Natracare’s products have been an advantage for women since they were first introduced in 1989 as a natural choice for women seeking a chemical free option. Their feminine hygiene products provide the perfect solution for women who are chemically sensitive as well as those who have health and environmental concerns, such as the use of pesticides, toxic dioxin pollution and sanitary waste disposal. Other Natracare products include certified organic pure cotton tampons, with and without applicators, ultra pads with wings, regular curved pads, super, slender and night time press-on pads, a full range of panty liners, as well as Natracare Baby wipes and baby toiletries, consisting of a shampoo, lotion, bath, and massage oil.
