Natracare Ultra Super Period Pads with Wings are ultra absorbent and thin pads with an absorbency suitable for medium or heavier menstrual flow. Natracare pads come individually wrapped so are easily carried around when you are out and about.
Women today are conscious of the need to restrict their contact with synthetic materials and unnecessary chemicals and additives. They are becoming more aware that most of the widely available sanitary pads sold today, contain a blend of chlorine-bleached pulp, polypropylene, polyacrylates and plastic. For each monthly cycle, it makes sense to choose a pad that is made from natural materials.
Natracare chemical free pads are high quality products made from only pure and natural materials that are made from plant cellulose. They are not chlorine bleached and are free of rayon, plastics and other similar synthetic materials that have a negative impact on our environment. They are comfortable and reliable and available in different absorbencies and styles.

Why use wood pulp inside of the pads?
We never use chemically processed pulp (such as rayon aka viscose) or synthetic materials in our pads. Instead, we use fluffed wood pulp in the absorbent core of our pads. Natracare pulp is sustainably sourced from fast growing, Scandinavian pine trees – which is very absorbent! We mechanically process the wood to make it soft and fluffy – this fibre structure is more absorbent than using cotton alone. Pulp is natural, renewable, and more sustainable alternative than the use of superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) found in most conventional pads. The cover is made from certified organic cotton, and this sits next to the skin, acting as a soft cover to wick away leaks
How do you use the wings on a pad?
Natracare ultra extra pads come with wings. When prepping the pad for use, remove the central paper strip and press the sticky side into your underwear. Then peel the paper off the wings, and fold around the sides of the gusset and press underneath. This helps hold the pad in place whilst being used.
Are pads with wings better?
Choosing whether to use pads with or without wings comes down to personal preference. You may prefer keeping a pad extra securely in place with wings. Or your may find it an unnecessary extra or prefer the feel of pads without wings.
How do I dispose of Natracare ultra pads and packaging?
Natracare pads are commercially compostable to EN 13432 where facilities exist. It is also possible to compost our pads at home. If you don’t have a compost bin, pads should be disposed of with your regular waste. The packaging is made from recycled cardboard and the pad wrapper from paper.
