Here at Gift Wellness, our aim is to provide the cleanest and most hygienic sanitary wear possible to women. Gift pads and liners are made in clinically clean factory conditions. During manufacture, workers wear face masks and overalls and the assembly lines are shut down and steam cleaned several times during production. The result is that we provide the cleanest pads on the market. This greatly reduces the chances of infections or irritations in your delicate parts.
To prove how clean our pads are, we commissioned independent lab testing by MSL, Microbiological Solutions Ltd, to test for any harmful bacteria, that can be present in sanitary wear.
They tested for the following bacteria:
Enterobacteriaceae is responsible for various infections such as bacteremia, lower respiratory tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, urinary tract infections, endocarditis, intra-abdominal infections, septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, and ophthalmic infections.
Staphylococcus aureusis the leading cause of skin and soft tissue infections such as abscesses (boils), furuncles, and cellulitis. Although most staph infections are not serious, S. aureus can cause serious infections such as bloodstream infections, pneumonia, or bone and joint infections.
Pseudomonas aeruginosacan be a dangerous bacterium. It is one of the main causes of serious hospital-acquired infection in the UK. It is also a leading cause of death among people with cystic fibrosis.
Channel 4 News reported today that the government is finally abolishing the tax on sanitary pads and tampons. Women all over Europe have been calling for an end to the so called 'tampon tax' for several years,
