Your organic cotton core journey

Cotton is Grown

Cotton is Grown

Organic cotton is grown not manufactured. The quality varies considerably depending on the soil and rainfall.

Global demand is high, so to make it sustainable - most cotton is grown from genetically modified seeds so less fertilizer, water, and land is needed.

Cotton is Harvested

Cotton is grown in warm climates. It has been harvested, spun, and woven into cloth by hand since 3,000 years BC.

Cotton Plant Goes through the Ginning Cycle

Cotton Plant Goes through the Ginning Cycle

The cotton gin, short for engine, separates the soft fibers from the seed. The inventor, a native of Massachusetts, secured a patent on the cotton gin in 1793. The gin could do the work 10x faster than by hand.

The gin made it possible to supply large quantities of cotton fiber to the fast-growing textile industry. Cotton fibers destined for this industry then go on to be spun into thread and woven into fabric.

Cotton is Purified

Tampax Pure Cotton is processed free from elemental chlorine and free from chlorine dioxide. The cotton used in Tampax tampons is purified using a Totally Chlorine Free (TCF) process.

The purification process also removes:

  • The natural waxes & oils, so cotton is more absorbent
  • Natural colorants and contaminants, so cotton is purified
