Gift Pads receive 100% Clear Rating from Microbiological Testing


by Admin giftwellness February 24, 2017

One of the main concerns women have about sanitary wear is

“How clean is it?”

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.

Gift pads customers will be pleased to hear that our pads came out with a 100% clear rating on all three products, our Normal, Long and Daily Liners. As our product range develops we promise to maintain these high standards for your menstrual health and peace of mind.

The issue of period poverty is at the heart and origins of Gift Wellness so naturally we were elated when we first heard that that the British government was beginning to take some positive steps towards eradicating the problem. The Gift Wellness Foundation explored the government's promise to provide free sanitary products to girls in schools and colleges and what the impact the policy would have in practice.
