Tampax has been serving consumers with period care products for more than 80 years. Ensuring that our products are safe for the millions of consumers who use them is at the foundation of everything we do. We are confident in the quality and safety of every single ingredient in our Tampax brands, and we are proud to share our history because nothing is more important to us than your well-being.
At Tampax, the safety of our ingredients and materials is the most important choice we make for our products.
When we explore ingredient options or work with our suppliers, we ask questions, just like you. We review all existing safety information and if we can’t be sure that it can be used safely, we won’t use it.
Our PhD scientists and outside experts help us define a safe level for each ingredient. Almost everything in the world has a safe and an unsafe level or limit, including life-sustaining basics like sunlight, oxygen and water.
Safe Product Use
We rely on analytical data in combination with supplier information to ensure that the amount of an ingredient is within the safe limits.
Monitor Use and New Information
Perspective on an ingredient’s safety can change, sometimes seemingly overnight. That’s why we review new literature, assess consumer comments and connect with experts to stay on top of the science.
With your well-being as our ultimate standard, we will continue to feature our ingredients on our packaging, on SmartLabel.org and Tampax.com so that when you reach for our products, you’ll know they are made with thoroughly evaluated ingredients. Your trust in our products is what keeps us innovating and continuing along our ingredient transparency journey.
