Lady Anion – first antibacterial sanitary pads

Saturday, November 21st, 2020

Lady Anion sanitary pads are made with 100% certified organic cotton and have antibacterial properties.

Vagina is an effective drug delivery ecosystem. Due to a dense network of blood vessels in the vagina, a wide range of medications can be easily and rapidly absorbed directly into the systemic circulation. The vagina is therefore a more sensitive and more absorbent that typical skin, and not all sanitary products are beneficial to women’s health.

Technology allows us to make a step further and create a product with antibacterial and health-beneficial effects and, at the same time, soft and comfortable. Wearing non-breathable sanitary pads for too long can affect the temperature and humidity balance in the genital area and favour harmful bacteria. Bacterial vaginosis (BV) and vaginal thrush are the undesired consequences, when the vaginal microbiome becomes over-colonised with either other vaginal bacteria or yeast candida, respectively.

You might ask how antibacterial affect is achieved. The answer is: negative ions (anions).

In nature, negative ions are created with air molecules broken apart from sunlight, radiation, moving air or rushing water. You encounter the greatest densities of negative air ions in pleasant and hydrated places. You will feel awe when you experience something truly profound. Have you felt more energetic in the mountains, at the beach or in a thunderstorm? That is the effect of negative ions.

Lady Anion sanitary pads have a core strip releasing negative ions.

Scientific evidence suggest that negative ion exposure may:

  1. promote antimicrobial activity, i.e. inhibit the growth or kill harmful bacteria and yeasts by inducing the oxidative damage to their DNA.
  2. reduce symptoms of depression in some people.
  3. improve cognitive and physiological functions.

In addition to the negative ion strip and delicate organic cotton fabrics, Lady Anion pads are ultra-thin and light. The thin layer is especially designed to allow the liquid to penetrate only in one direction. As a result, Lady Anion pad can absorb a higher amount of menstrual fluid and prevent it from side leakage, accumulation of harmful bacteria and contact with the outer skin.

Lady Anion is a carefully designed organic product beneficial to women’s health.

How to choose a good sanitary pad – things to consider

Tuesday, September 1st, 2020

Choosing the right sanitary pad is essential for maintaining hygiene during menstruation. Several factors are important to consider, e.g. material, absorbency and odour control, length and flow, and your lifestyle.

In this article, let us look at what makes a sanitary pads high-quality product.

Quality material

Vagina is one of the best routes for drug administration. Due to the presence of a dense network of blood vessels in the vagina, a wide range of drugs are easily and rapidly absorbed directly into the systemic circulation. Keeping this amazing property in mind, how should quality sanitary pads look like?

The type of material used affects product’s breathability and comfort level. Ideally, a sanitary pad should be made from sustainable and natural materials, such as pure cotton; feel soft and comfortable to wear. Softness and natural absorbent fabrics will be the key factors for women with sensitive skin. In contrast, liners made with synthetic fibres will contain only a small percentage of cotton, if any at all. Most of the companies use fabrics with certain characteristics to simulate the texture of cotton. But above all, such products are not natural; contain additives, such as artificial fragrances or absorbency agents, to enhance the properties but can cause skin irritation, itchiness or even allergic reactions.

Sanitary pads made with 100% cotton are breathable and highly absorbent compared to their synthetic analogues. Breathability is crucial to eliminate the smell and to avoid growth of harmful bacteria. Organic pads contain a soft organic cotton cover that allows your skin to breath, and an absorbent cellulose core, which locks away menstrual fluid to keep your skin dry.

Good absorbency

The ability to absorb a large volume of menstrual fluid in a short span of time is another essential quality for a good sanitary pad. Always choose sanitary products with an absorbency level appropriate for your menstrual flow. During the day, when you are more active, it is critical that the sanitary pad holds the fluid and prevents it from leakage and direct contact with the skin. Many women note that pads made with synthetic materials are not absorbent enough compared to the cotton liners. The average amount of a woman’s menstrual discharge is 30-80 ml. For women experiencing a heavy menstrual flow (80ml and more), a reliable sanitary pad with high absorbency to minimize any possibility of leakage is a must.

Eco-friendly packaging

Only organic products are fully biodegradable, odour and chemical free. For hygienic reasons, each sanitary pad should have an individual wrapping.

We are excited to offer our customers a quality product with a positive impact and health benefit. Lady Anion is a modern, discreet and Eco-friendly pantiliner sanitary pad, which has an antibacterial negative ion strip for a better comfort, breathability and long-lasting protection.

Healthy vaginal microbiome

Sunday, August 23rd, 2020

Menstruation, known as period or menses, is normal vaginal bleeding which occurs as a part of a woman’s monthly cycle. Maintaining proper menstrual hygiene is vital to woman’s health, well-being, physical activity and productivity.

Vagina is a finely tuned and dynamic ecosystem, a home to billions of bacteria, with lactobacilli being the most dominant. The vagina is self-cleaning, and vaginal discharge (secretions) plays an important role in keeping the vaginal environment healthy. Healthy vaginal discharge is a joint product of fluid from the vaginal walls, mucus from the cervix and the lactobacilli. Variation in the volume of discharge throughout the month is completely normal. Lactobacilli keep the vagina’s pH balance acidic (less than pH 4.5) and produce bacteriocins, naturally occurring antibiotics, to reduce the growth of undesired harmful bacteria.

Healthy vaginal discharge has a characteristic smell, and in some women it can become stronger because of the large number of sweat glands in the hair-bearing pubic area. However, it is important to keep the skin around the vagina clean and dry to prevent it from redness, itching or soreness.

Insufficient menstrual hygiene can lead to disturbed balance of vaginal bacteria. A change in vaginal discharge, colour or unpleasant smell can be a sign of infection, although the most bacterial sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia and gonorrhoea, usually do not cause any change in discharge. Seek a medical advice! More common causes are yeast candida (vaginal thrush) or bacterial vaginosis (BV), which occur when the vaginal microbiome becomes over-colonised with either yeast candidaor other vaginal bacteria.

Women’s health during special days

Always choose sanitary products with an absorbency level appropriate for your menstrual flow. During the day, when you are more active, your menstrual flow is normally heavier, so the pad absorbs more blood, sweat and sebum. This creates an excellent breeding ground for harmful bacteria, which is why you should not wear one pad for more than 4 hours! In general, organic liners have several advantages over the regular sanitary pads. They contain fewer additives and dyes and are therefore suitable for women with sensitive skin, are “breathable” and environment-friendly.

Why choose our product?

We care of your health and well-being. Our product is designed for you in your most vulnerable days. It is made of 100% organic cotton, which is delicate to wear and has antibacterial properties. In Lady Anion we use negative ions –air molecules that are constantly breaking apart due to sunlight, radiation, moving air or rushing water. The idea behind negative ion therapy is simple: positive ions hurt, negative ions make you feel good and awakened.

In nature, you encounter the greatest densities of negative air ions in pleasant, hydrated places like near a waterfall, in the forester close to the breaking ocean waves on the beach, and during summer months (freshness after the thunderstorm). In contrast, positive ions are often associated with pollutant particles like smog, dust or pollen and are therefore more prevalent indoors, in urban areas and in winter. Scientific evidence suggest that negative ions could inhibit the growth or kill harmful bacteria and yeasts by inducing the oxidative damage to their DNA.

A unique strip in Lady Anion is activated by a drop of liquid, and it starts to emit negative ions, which neutralize odours and kill the bacteria. In addition, Lady Anion sanitary pads contain a unique layer that allows liquid to penetrate only in one direction. As a result, it can absorb a higher amount of fluid and prevent it from side leakage, accumulation of bacteria and contact with the outer skin. Delicate organic cotton fabric in Lady Anion sanitary pads is exclusive comfort that will please even a very exacting customer!
