Gift Wellness Ltd was founded in 2012 by Dr Zareen Roohi Ahmed who designed a new, innovative range of sanitary pads & pantyliners. The idea was two-fold. Firstly, to address the poor quality of sanitary protection products that filled our supermarket isles, most of which were made with toxic materials and artificial fragrances that caused a wide range of feminine problems. The other purpose of Gift Wellness was to provide sanitary pads to women in crisis situations, such as homeless women and women in refugee camps. So far, around 1000,000 sanitary pads have been donated!
After 5 years of trading our product range is now a best seller in Holland & Barrett and is fast becoming a leading brand.
Gift Wellness sanitary pads and daily pantyliners combine the power of nature and science to provide a breakthrough in sanitary protection. You’re probably thinking ‘sanitary pads’, that’s hardly rocket science? Well actually it is! We found a form of technology that is used by NASA in astronaut’s space suits; by airlines in air purification units and many other products. We applied this technology to sanitary pads. The amazing thing is that it comes from nature!
Our secret is a semi-precious mineral stone called Tourmaline which naturally emits negative ions and far infrared ray providing antibacterial effects. According to many scientists and naturopaths, this mineralis thought to help women during menstruation. Amongst the many benefits the monthly cycle becomes more regular, there is less discomfort, tension and pain, for a much calmer and happier experience during your period.
The mineral is pulverized, made into a resin and used to create a thin layer in our pads, which are made in clinically clean and hygienic conditions.The benefits are incredible and women everywhere are telling us how Gift pads are helping them.
Gift pads are at least 6 times more absorbent than most ordinary brands. This makes them better for the environment, because around a third less product is used and thrown away. The friendly packaging & branding dispels taboos. It celebrates women, so they don’t have to hide them away or be embarrassed. And don’t forget – for every pack we sell we’re helping women in crisis.
As a new company, with no budget for marketing, we knew we were relying on the power of word of mouth to promote our product range. Sure enough, soon after we launched, women started using Gift pads and telling other women about them and the messages of encouragement were reaching us through social media, personal testimonials and reviews. Women were telling other women of their relief and excitement that there was finally a sanitary range that actually addressed their needs and performed beyond their expectations. I’ve met many of our customers at trade shows too where they tell me how much they love Gift pads because of their calming and healing affect.
But there’s much more we can do. We are now developing the product range to include other types of sanitary wear using the same anion technology. This will include a range of incontinence pads, maternity pads and teen-sized pads. And due to popular demand, we’re also about to launch a range of organic cotton tampons.
We’re so grateful to all our customers for giving us this opportunity to serve your feminine hygiene needs. Also, thanks to you, we can continue to help many thousands of women around the world to safeguard their dignity during times of crisis.

“Gift Wellness sanitary pads are the best choice for women who suffer from Endometriosis, as the painful symptoms of the condition are often triggered by the harmful chemicals contained in ordinary pads.
We are therefore extremely pleased to endorse the Gift pads range and looking forward to working with Gift Wellness to raise awareness of Endometriosis.”
Kathleen King, Chair, EAoI
