The Latest in Sanitary Napkin Technology

Editorial Staff

The sanitary products market is a minefield. With young women being more conscious about the products they use, Angels Secret brings to the table safe, super-absorbant and all-natural sanitary napkins with integrated negative ion technology.

What’s in your sanitary napkins?

Dioxin is a toxic chemical that is found in sanitary napkins, liners and tampons that women and girls have been using for many years. These products are typically made with recycled materials that have been bleached eight times to make them white, which causes the production of dioxin. According to the World Health Organization, excessive exposure to dioxin can have a detrimental effect on your health. Exposure may lead to reproductive problems, damage the immune system and disrupt hormones. Dioxin is formed as an unintentional by-product of many industrial processes involving chlorine such as waste incineration, chemical and pesticide manufacturing and pulp and paper bleaching. On average, a woman uses 15,000 sanitary napkins over a span of 35 years of her life—therefore, the risk of being exposed to dioxin is extremely high.

Angels Secret with negative ion technology

If a woman is not careful during her menstruation cycle, she can become more susceptible to some gynecological diseases that may impact her quality of life. Not to mention the discomfort of cramps, migraines, PMS, and disrupted vaginal pH balance.

Why use Angels Secret?

Angels Secret is the ideal hygienic sanitary napkin that works to kill 99.9 percent of bacteria. Its super-absorbent properties mean that you will only require two to three pads instead of four to six per day. Beyond this, these sanitary napkins are highly breathable odor-free. The pads are also double-lined to help protect from any leakage from the sides.
The negative ion technology incorporated in this product has many potential benefits for the body. It may improve energy levels, strengthen the body’s immune system, promote better sleep, maintain a healthy alkaline pH balance, may act as pain relief, balance the autonomic nervous system, neutralize free radicals and help to purify your blood.

Does Angels Secret make tampons?

Angels Secret does not make tampons because tampons have been associated with toxic shock syndrome (TSS). According to the Mayo Clinic, TSS has been strongly linked to the use of superabsorbent tampons.
TSS is a rare, life-threatening complication of certain types of bacterial infections. Staphylococcus aureus (staph) bacteria are toxins that cause TSS. Tampon products that are sold in stores   tend to have a warning about the risks of TSS on the boxes. You can almost entirely avoid the risk of getting the disease by not using tampons.

If these toxins are bad, is anyone trying to have them removed?

Yes, Carolyn Maloney is the U.S. representative for the New York’s 12th congressional district. She has a bill that would study health effects and safety of feminine hygiene products. The Robin Danielson Feminine Hygiene Product Safety Act (H.R. 1708) would enable research and a better understanding of how additives in these products that contain dioxin, synthetic fibers, and other chemical additives like chlorine, colorants and fragrances, pose health risks. Given the present lack of research, there is no way of knowing if diseases such as cervical cancer, endometriosis, infertility and ovarian cancer may be linked to a woman’s use of feminine hygiene products.
We know that formaldehyde releasers, dioxin, pesticides and other harmful chemicals are found in feminine care products. What we don’t know, is exactly how these chemicals are impacting women’s health.

How is Angels Secret different from the other negative ion pads?

Angels Secret is the original sanitary napkin that holds the patent for the negative ion technology. We have certifications for No Radiation, Compliance or Gamma-emitting. These super-absorbent pads are super thin, reduce/eliminate cramps, migraines, odor, inflammation and help to balance pH.
