FAQs

HOW ARE DAME TAMPONS BETTER FOR MY BODY?

The average woman uses 12,000 tampons in her lifetime. That's a tampon inside your vagina for a total 7.5 years. Most tampons are made from synthetic fibres, plastics, and treated with harsh chemicals. We think it’s time to be honest about what goes into women’s bodies, so we make our tampons with nothing but organic cotton.

WHAT TAMPON ABSORBENCIES DOES DAME OFFER?

We now offer three absorbencies of tampon - all made from our 100% organic & toxin-free cotton: Regular Tampons which absorb 6-9 grams of blood (good for most days of your period) Super Tampons which absorb 9-12 grams of blood (extra absorption for heavier days) Super Plus tampons which absorb 12-15 grams of blood (we've got you covered for the heaviest days)Make sure to always use a tampon with the minimum absorbency to match your flow.

HOW DO I USE A DAME TAMPON?

Step 1: If this is your first time, we recommend choosing a day when your bleeding is moderate. Try to relax - it's totally normal to need a few tries before you get it right.

Step 2: Wash your hands, unwrap your tampon (pull on the loose end of the coloured tape) and insert into your DAME reusable tampon applicator. To learn how to load your applicator, check out How it Works.

Step 3: Gently insert the tip of the applicator into your vagina. You want an upward angle of 45 degrees. Now push the plunger all the way in to insert your tampon.

Step 4: Carefully remove the applicator and clean it. Rinse it under the cold tap, and wipe it dry with loo paper to make sure it's completely dry. If you don't have a reusable applicator, or prefer to use your tampons without an applicator, then you can insert DAME tampons with your finger too.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHANGE A DAME TAMPON?

Make sure to change your tampon every 4-8 hours. Please don't leave it in for any longer. And if you’re switching to organic tampons for the first time, it’s a good idea to check your tampon a bit more frequently than before.

While the absorbencies of DAME tampons conform to industry standards (6-9g for Regular, 9-12g for Super and 12-15g for Super Plus), they do absorb slightly differently to conventional tampons. This is because ours rely on the natural absorbency of organic cotton and *nothing else*.

Unlike conventional tampons, you won’t find any plastic, rayon, polyester or other synthetics that impact absorbency.
When it’s time to change your tampon, please pull your tampon out from your vagina gently - organic cotton tampons need to be treated with a bit more care than a standard synthetic tampon.
