THE LiZZOM STORY
In an era where choices are endless, how we shop, eat and live our everyday lives matters more than ever. We make certain choices because of how they make us feel: –
And downright good.
So why aren’t we doing the same when it comes to our period? Regular Sanitary Napkins, the world over are produced using harmful toxins, plastic and chemicals that have known to cause rashes, allergies, skin sensitivity amongst other fatal diseases. Yet when it comes to feminine hygiene, our choices are limited.
At LiZZOM, it started with an inquisitive journey to find choices that matter. We’ve created products that allow you to make choices that make you feel good from the inside out.
Being absolutely transparent about what goes into our product, how they are made, we hope to make a positive impact on the environment as well.
We choose change. We choose absolute honesty. We choose good.
WE’RE IN IT FOR GOOD
WHY BAMBOO & CORN
CHOICES THAT MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.
Period is a dirty word. Sadly, the industry even dirtier. What does that really mean?
Sanitary napkins are made entirely of synthetic materials and plastic that take over 400 to 500 years for the environment to break down. With over 3,000 to 5,000 napkins used over a lifetime of a woman, this means a basic sanitary napkin used perhaps 130 years ago is still around.
Because Sanitary Napkins are classified under the category ‘medical products’ companies are exempt from listing their ingredients. A generic napkin is created using cotton, harmful dioxins, toxins and plastic. Conventional cotton is grown using insecticides and pesticides that don’t just put our health at risk but also endanger the ecosystems around them whilst pulling on vast amount of resources.
When we began our research, we wanted to create a product that was as good for the environment as for you. Organic cotton is a much cleaner raw material than conventional cotton but it also requires a large amount of resources to produce. That’s why we chose Organic Bamboo and Corn to create a cleaner, safer, more absorbent and compostable sanitary napkin.
