Have you ever tried to see how long you can stay under water or how long you can hold your breath? Or have you ever choked and felt the desperate need to breathe? If you have, then you know how precious a good breath of fresh air is. Oxygen is the most important element for our life.
But why is it so important for sanitary pads to be breathable?
If you have been using regular sanitary pads, you have most probably experienced irritation and felt very uncomfortable. One of the reasons this happens is because of the sanitary pads not being breathable. In order for the sanitary pads not to allow the liquid to flow through, the manufacturers use an impermeable bottom layer, most often made of plastic, which does not allow liquid or air to pass through either. This way, moisture and heat are kept inside, creating a very good environment for bacteria to develop.
Most of the bacteria that can cause women’s diseases are anaerobe, which means they will die within 30 seconds to 1 minute in oxygen. That is why it is very important for sanitary pads and pantyliners to allow air flow.
Anion Love Moon sanitary napkins have a base film which is permeable to air but not to water. This way, no leakage will occur, while oxygen will still be allowed to flow through, stopping bacteria from developing and keeping you healthy and feeling comfortable.
In the following posts we are going to show some tests that check the breathability of different brands sanitary pads.
I hope you understand better now why it is so important for sanitary pads to be breathable and I am looking forward to sharing more practical information with you about this. Hope you all have a great week!
