Product Review: Organic Feminine Care

Be Self-Aware, Love Your Body, & Make A Positive Change. They Don’t Call Us Superwomen for Nothing #GirlLove

A large part of Studio One’s ethos is making a healthy lifestyle available for all our clients. Today we will improve your education on feminine hygiene. Why you should be kinder to your vagina, how to access proper care, and ending this wacky taboo on “no working out during your menstruation.”

Why You Should be Kinder To Your Vagina?

When it comes to skin care and food, buying organic has become a trending topic. So, if we are so concerned about what goes on our faces and into our bodies then there should be no excuse in abandoning our vaginas! After all, the skin of the vulva is the most sensitive part of a woman’s body.


In today’s consumerism, there is a wide range of feminine care available. So much so that it’s easy to get lost in what goes into all these products.

Unless its stated otherwise, most feminine care brands are filled with harsh chemicals and pesticides. This is due to helping the cotton grow and keeping pest aside to stop destroying the growing process. Additionally, conventional tampons are also bleached to get that super white look. All these chemicals remain in the product soon after distribution.

One of the major problems is when these tampons shed inside you, causing small cuts that can be filled with bacteria and become further inflamed. This can lead to irritation, itching, and major discomfort.

Plus, you can’t rely on just reading the ingredients, as tampon manufacturers don’t have to disclose the ingredients used in their product. So, what are you really putting inside you?


I’m putting in TOTM 100% organic cotton tampons! A company that strives to protect you while helping the environment. TOTM’s products don’t contain any toxins like parabens, harmful chemicals or bleach. I would recommend any women who Is concerned about their health to give them a go!

Because your intimate health is delicate, investing in a product like TOTM should be a no brainer. You can rest assure, knowing that you are getting a quality product while avoiding the risk of potential harm.

You might also simply choose TOTM to be kinder to the environment. As plastic waste is a growing problem today. Did you know it takes up to 800 years for normal pads to biodegrade? TOTM’s 100% biodegradable tampons dissolve naturally in landfills, so you don’t have to be worried about your DNA hanging around for so long ;)

No Working Out During Your Menstruation

Now let’s end this crazy taboo once and for all! After hours of research we can confirm that working out during your period is fine, in fact it can even be better?

Working out can help you relieve menstruation pain that makes your period so troublesome to begin with. Anything creating less heavy, less cramping, and less pain we are all in!

Exercise also takes your mind off the discomfort while releasing multiple endorphins. Best work out during your period? HIIT! As this hormone shift creates fuel more accessible to your body, allowing an increase of calorie burning.

Not feeling high intensity workouts? Then just a relaxing Vinyasa Yoga will have you feeling better in no time. As this will help blood flow and reduce inflammation around the body. We encourage you to come to Studio One during your menstruation to relax, unwind, and recharge.
