Unlike conventional maternity pads that can contain a large amount of plastic and synthetic chemicals that may cause rashes or irritation, Sparkle maternity pads are made using natural, sustainable and renewable ingredients that are soft on your skin and gentle to the planet.
We have designed Sparkle maternity pads by focusing on the entire product life cycle starting from choosing sustainable ingredients to their responsible disposal. Therefore, Sparkle maternity pads are also compostable which means they designed to biodegrade in warm and humid conditions.
You may need to change your pad every hour or two at the beginning when there might be heavy bleeding. As your bleeding becomes lighter, you can change your pad every 3 to 5 hours.
Most conventional maternity pads are made using non-biodegradable petro-chemical by-products. When they are disposed of, they either end up in landfills where they remain unchanged for over 500 years or they are incinerated which may release harmful fumes in the environment. If the used products are flushed down the toilet, they end up in oceans and water bodies, harming precious marine life.
Sparkle maternity pads are made using biodegradable and compostable ingredients which makes them commercially compostable according to EN 13432 meaning Sparkle maternity pads are capable of breaking down into organic matter in 4-6 months under composting conditions and go back to nature without leaving any toxic residue. Since our back film is made using certified home-compostable materials, it is also possible to compost Sparkle maternity pads at home.
The best way to dispose of Sparkle maternity pads is to compost them so they can go back to nature in the most sustainable way.
If there are composting facilities where you live, Sparkle maternity pads are commercially compostable according to EN 13432. Since our back film is also made using certified home-compostable materials, it is possible to compost Sparkle maternity pads at home.
If you don’t have a compost bin, you may dispose of Sparkle maternity pads in a normal waste bin.
Sparkle maternity pads are manufactured in India at our Surat, Gujarat plant.
