s. rosa organic: tampons to your door

We created s. rosa organic so that women can have 100% organic tampons delivered to their door on a regular basis, with enough supply to last at least 3 months. Our tampons are organic cotton and do not have any rayon, synthetic materials, chlorine, bleaching agents or any other toxins.

It all started when I got my period at 3am in the middle of winter. Disgruntled, I drove to 7-11 and paid about $9.00 for a pack of 16 synthetic tampons. I went home but didn't sleep - there needed to be a change. We are from Melbourne, Australia and want to revolutionise the way women deal with their periods.

The way we access tampons has remained the same for years and years. We want to disrupt this for good. Large tampon companies are not obliged to include an ingredient list, so we don't know what we are putting into our bodies every single month.

Typically, chlorine, bleaching agents, rayon, viscose, fragrances, plastics, toxins and other chemicals are used in the process of manufacturing synthetic tampons.

A new design. We wanted to create tampon packaging that was compact, durable, functional and had a subtle, modern design. We wanted to make sure that tampons did not fall out too, so we built the s. rosa organic linen zip pouch. 

Features of the linen zip pouch:

  • Recyclable and reusable 
  • Soft gold, metal zipper
  • Zip closure to keep tampons safe inside
  • Pure woven, linen material
  • 11.0cm x 13.5cm (height x length)
  • No bleaching agents used on the linen
  • Compact, functional and durable

Tampon details:

  • Pure cotton
  • 100% organic
  • Absorbency of approximately 11g, suitable for medium flow
  • Cotton is grown and tampons are made in Spain
  • No synthetic materials
  • No chlorine
  • No bleaching agents
  • No toxins
  • Hypoallergenic 
  • No fragrance
  • No dioxins or furans
  • No pesticide residue
  • No plastics
  • No rayon
  • No synthetic ingredients

Tampon box features:

  • Recyclable 
  • Holds x16 tampons 
  • Flat, compact 
  • Easy to store

Compact and easy to take everywhere

You will never have to worry about buying tampons again and have peace of mind that you are giving your body the best. With all your help, support and belief in our project, we will bring this to all women.

Finding the right material took a lot of time, but it was worth it. We found a pure, soft linen material that is not bleached and has texture that makes it look and feel unique. I've been using it since I got my sample and I love it! It is also highly durable and will not rip or break like conventional tampon boxes. They're brilliant for reusing too and will hold anything you want in there safely.

Finding a zipper that was strong, metal and had a soft shade of gold ended up taking us the most time to find. Finally, we were left with these two and chose the larger zipper. The reason is because the larger size makes it easier to grasp the zip and it adds a nice, jewellery-like touch to the zip pouch.

We wanted a colour that was soft and subtle. We ended up printing many samples that were either too dark or far too light for our logo to be seen. In the end, we found one that was ideal and stuck with it. It is a subtle pink and works well with other accessories that you use.

Compact and functional. Holds 16 tampons

The new zip pouch means that tampons will stay right where they should be (and not on the floor, in public, to many furtive stares). It is small, compact, functional and subtle!

No more driving to the shops

Say goodbye to last minute trips to the convenience store when you're in no condition to leave the house, uncomfortable and moody. We'll deliver right to your door, with enough tampons to last you about 3 months.

This funding will be used to make the zip pouches, make the tampons and send them out to anyone in the world. If you're from Australia, you will also have free shipping on any of the prizes.

On a very important note, we want to keep the conversation alive about the fact that women all over the world are still being taxed for an essential item. Governments make millions directly from women getting their periods and it is time to put an end to it. Sign as many of these petitions as you can! If you know of another one, send us a message and we'll put it up.

Risks and challenges

As we've already sourced the suppliers and manufacturers and given them a guideline and provided a timeline, there shouldn't be too many challenges relating to the production.

If there are any delays in the delivery of the rewards due to unforeseen funding or any other reason, we will keep every one informed throughout every step of the way and always be available to answer all your questions.
