The Natracare tampon without applicator is made from a rolled wadding of 100% organic cotton. As the cotton gently absorbs the menstrual flow, the tampon expands widthways.

Deciding between an applicator and non-applicator tampon is generally a matter of personal preference. However, about 20% of women naturally have a retroverted uterus (the uterus tilts backwards towards the spine instead of forwards) and using an inflexible applicator can cause pain during insertion. The Natracare non-applicator tampon, gently eased into the correct position using the longer index finger, makes inserting the tampon more comfortable. The organic cotton withdrawal cord allows you to easily remove the tampon after use.
