Recommended For: Average Flow, Heavy Flow, Plus Size, Postpartum
Length: 12" (30.5cm)
Includes 1 Long Pad & 1 Long Basic Liner. For additional LIner Inserts, Click Here.
Suitable for average to heavy/overnight menstrual flow or light incontinence. Long Pad and Liner Insert are each 12" (30.5cm) long and approximately 2.5" (6.5cm) wide when snapped.
Additional Long Basic or Wing Liners may be added to increase absorbency and prevent leaks. A single Pad will get you through a full day of your cycle, provided that the Liner is changed before soaking through. Liners will last approximately as long per use as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon.
Pad Base: 2 Layer, 100% cotton flannel base topped with an absorbent panel made of 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece, and 1 layer of ultra-thin nylon to minimize soaking through. Nickel-free, Silver-plated brass single snap fastening.
Liner Insert: 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece.
A single Pad will get you through an entire day of your cycle; just change your Liner as needed. Liners will last approximately as long (per use) as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. Unlike most disposable pads, Lunapads do not contain any added chemicals, gels, or super absorbent polymers. Given this, Lunapads users need to be mindful of changing the Liner insert as frequently as their flow dictates in order to prevent soaking through the Pad. Frequent changing of the Liners significantly enhances the comfort and performance of the Pad.
Lunapads will last upwards of 5 years with recommended usage and care.
Lunapads can be washed by hand or machine in any temperature with your regular detergent. Pre-soaking or rinsing in cold water prior to washing is recommended (but not always necessary) particularly if the pads are heavily saturated. Please note that if Lunapads are being soaked, soaking water must be changed daily.
Lunapads recommends natural cleaning products such as Nellie's All Natural Laundry Soda for regular cleaning, and Buncha Farmers Stain Remover to perk up stained pads. Heavily stained pads may also benefit from occasional machine wash and dry in hot settings or air drying in direct sunlight.
Please avoid the use of chlorine bleach or fabric softeners to clean Lunapads, as this will decrease the performance of the products and is harmful to the environment.
HOW TO USE
Wrap the Pad around the gusset of your underwear and close the snap to secure. The fleece panel should be facing up (towards your body on the inside of the panty), as this is the most absorbent part of the pad. Incorrect placement may result in reduced comfort and performance of the Pad.
Liners can be added as desired by inserting the ends under the ric-rac bands on the Pad. Multiple Liners may be used for increased absorbency. Pads can be refreshed as desired by removing and replacing the Liner(s). Please note that Liners are not intended to be worn without a Pad.
Please note that Organic Cotton is only available in Magenta Mandala. Regular Cotton pads are available in all other colours in quantiites indicated above except for Magenta Mandala.
