The Natracare applicator is smooth and rounded to assist with tampon insertion so a good option for girls who are not familiar with using tampons.
Many other brands of tampon applicators are made of plastics which contain phthalates, which may be absorbed through the skin a disrupt the endocrine system. Plastic applicators also greatly contribute to marine pollution. Natracare applicators are made from a smooth, easy glide cardboard which is biodegradable and chlorine-free.

Applicator vs non-applicator
Unlike the applicator style, non-applicator tampons are inserted using your longest finger, which tucks into the flared end of the tampon to enable the tampon to be pushed into place. Deciding between an applicator and non-applicator tampon is generally a matter of personal preference.
About 20% of women naturally have a retroverted uterus (the uterus tilts back towards the spine instead of forwards) and using an inflexible applicator can cause pain during insertion. A Natracare non-applicator tampon is eased into the correct position using the index finger.
Warnings & Precautions
Tampons are associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) a rare but serious disease that may cause death. Read and save the enclosed information and use the minimum absorbency necessary for your flow.
