Answers the questions you asked us
Why should I wash my underwear before the first use?
We recommend that you wash your lingerie in order to develop itsabsorption capacity and of course for hygienic reasons.
How do I wash my panties?
After use, simply rinse your lingerie in cold water and then put it in the machine at 30°C. The materials used in the absorbent core are delicate and cannot be washed at over 40°C, as this would risk coagulating the blood and fixing it to the fabric, which would leave marks. Then let it dry in the open air. Do not use strong heat, as this may damage waterproof fabrics.
Which detergent should I choose for my menstrual panties?
You can use conventional and mild detergents, preferably in powder form. As an ecological alternative we recommend the use of ash detergent, washing nuts or ivy detergent.
All soaps with fatty substances (Marseille soap, Aleppo soap, etc.) should be avoided.
Why not use fatty soaps to wash my underwear?
To preserve the absorbency of the menstrual panties, you should avoid all Soaps with fatty substances (Marseille soap, Aleppo soap, etc.). These soaps are the result of a cold saponification method. These types of soaps block the pores of the absorbent fabric of menstrual underwear.
Why use a washing net?
If you wash your underwear with the rest of your clothes, zips, buttons or other items on your clothes may damage your panties during the wash.
Be careful not to put too much panties in the same net, as this will prevent the laundry from being stirred properly.
Why not put my underwear in the dryer?
Does it smell bad?
Many women think that their periods smell bad. What they don't know is that blood does not give off unpleasant odours. These are caused by bacteria that grow as a result of blood soaking on 'traditional' chemical-laden pads. This creates foul odours, unbalances the vaginal flora and causes irritations, infections and fungal infections.
Doesn't it have a nappy effect?
Our lingerie doesn't have a diaper effect at all. The fabrics of the effecient absorbent core are ultra-thin and guarantee optimum safety.
Made in Switzerland?
Our lingeries are conceived and designed in Switzerland. We wanted to make a 100% Swiss manufacturing. Unfortunately there is no lingerie factory in our country.
Our gaol is to foster short circuits as much as possible (Italy and France) in order to reduce the environmental impact.
We have to be aware that the majority of materials used for textile production are grown in Asia. We opt for the "law of the least worst" and have to make compromises. Between consuming disposable or reusable, the choice is quickly made!
Why not have them made by Swiss seamstresses?
We would ideally prefered to produce panties in Switzerland by local seamstresses. However the labour would considerably increase the price of our lingerie. We care about the fact that all women can afford quality menstrual lingerie.
What fabrics are used in your lingerie?
Our lingeries are made of OEKO-TEX certified bamboo, cotton and modal. The lingerie will mainly be made of modal, a material obtained from the cellulose extracted from beech wood. This natural fabric is ecological and environmentally friendly.
Do you use PUL in your lingeries?
PUL is a waterproof fabric that prevents leaks. This is an essential material for menstrual panties, as blood would pass through the lingerie whitout it.
Our PUL is OEKO-TEX certified. This label carries out numerous controls to guarantee the harmlessness of textiles for health.
This label with very strict specifications is aimed at consumers who wish to consume responsibly, of course, but also at manufacturers who want to control their entire production chain.
What is the composition of the absorbent core?
- A first layer of organic cotton fabric.
- An ultra-absorbent layer made of bamboo fibres.
- A waterproof PUL material that prevents leaks and protects you in all circumstances.
Will you be offering large & small sizes?
As of now we offer sizes from XXS to XXL. We remain open to the idea of expanding our range later.
