Because Periods Matter

Product Review - Carmesi Sanitary Pads-- Aarti Kapur Singh


The personal care industry has witnessed a tremendous evolution, bringing the fanciest of experiences designed to pamper a woman- from exquisite body washes, lovely scents to dreamy lingerie, and what not! But despite all the superficial talk on the women’s personal hygiene front, the conversation has seldom gone more than skin deep. Literally and figuratively.

Even in the 21st century, it is sad to note that there still are no conversations around the health aspects and issues that women face with a personal care product that they use 4-5 (or more) days in a month for nearly 40 years of her life!

There, I seem to have bowed down to the stereotype about talking about it in hushed tones. And this is what needs to change. Because periods are the reason life goes on, generation after generation.

From rags of cloth to rudimentary cotton pads to swish and fancy sanitary towels that boast designer ‘oopari parat’ , pads have come a long way. But in times when reducing carbon footprints is not just important, but also critical, it is time that about Carmesi – a brand that makes healthy, organic and 100% biodegradable sanitary pads.sanitary pads also become a little more eco-friendly. This is what excited me in the first place
