Why choose negative ion sanitary pads?

Some females have reported itching, rash, redness, yeast infection, bad odor, vaginal pain, and urinary tract infections from normal sanitary pads. Because normal sanitary pads are made up of petroleum products and just absorb the period blood. Due to lack of oxygen, bacterial growth takes place after 4 hours of wearing a pad.

But, the case is different with negative ion sanitary pads. These pads contain a charged ion strip which could be green or blue, that releases negative ions or anions. These anions prevent bacterial growth, itchiness, bad odor, and lowers menstrual cramps or pain. They also are beneficial for females who feel extremely fatigued all the time.

Negative ions (6090 Anion/cm2) are on the green part of the Anion pantiliner which should be in contact with the skin of the genital area, additional Anion can be on the plantar or bottom surface of the foot or inside of the bra or anywhere on the skin. To activate negative ions few drops of water should be on the green Anion part. To have better results, it is better to change once or twice per day.

According to research conducted on females, it was evident that using negative ion sanitary pads is very beneficial for females. It also prevents mood swings during menstruation.
