Organic, Herbal, Non-Herbal… What’s the Difference?One of the main differences between herbal and non-herbal pads is the materials that they contain. At Lhamo, all our pads are organic, while non-organic pads are typically made from synthetic materials such as plastic and chlorine bleach. Our pads, on the other hand, are made from natural, plant-based materials such as organic cotton and herbal extracts, namely essential oils which have been shown to help with many parts of your menstrual cycle including period pain. The use of natural materials in herbal pads makes them more environmentally friendly and gentler on the skin, as they do not contain any harsh chemicals or synthetic materials that could potentially irritate or harm your skin. That being said, you may have sensitive skin, in which case herbal pads may not be ideal for you.
Same Level of AbsorbanceIn terms of effectiveness, there is little difference between herbal and non-herbal pads. Both types of pads are designed to absorb menstrual flow and prevent leaks, and both are effective at doing so. However, some may find that our thinner herbal pads are more comfortable to wear due to their natural materials and slimmer, more flexible design.
Ultimately, the choice between herbal and non-herbal pads comes down to your personal preference. If you are looking for an option that is going to offer you more freshness and the many benefits of essential oils, opting for our herbal pads may be your best option. On the other hand, if you have sensitive skin, our newest essential oil-free line of Lhamo pads may be better for you.
