Abstract

Menstrual hygiene is an issue that every girl and women had to deal with in her life, but nowadays there is a lack of awareness about the physical and psychological changes associated with puberty and menstruation process for managing and regulating menstruation. The commercially available menstrual hygiene pads are mainly laced with dioxins, petrochemicals and artificial fragrances and when these chemicals react with the sensitized skin tissue, it can cause skin irritation. The ingredients present in the synthetic pads are problematic for female reproductive system as it is very sensitive and absorptive. In order to overcome and reduce these severities, we can use natural materials like banana fiber, bamboo fibers, papyrus, cotton, water hyacinth, aloe vera, hemp with antimicrobial activity for preparing sustainable sanitary pads. The presence of bamboo in sanitary napkins so that it is an excellent absorbent material compared to cotton and also can reduce the complications of women during menstruation. Bamboo fibers are used in sanitary napkins for its Anti-fungal properties.

Keywords: Napkins, Menstruation, bamboo, Sensitive, Reproductive, Antimicrobial, Absorbent, Papyrus, Aloe vera, Hygiene.
