100% organic cotton, plastic-free tampons with a biodegradable cardboard applicator. Eco-warriors, we got you.
Need To Know

What→ Natural biodegradable tampons made from 100% organic cotton with a biodegradable cardboard applicator.

Why→ Body-safe, environmentally-friendly period products should be the norm. Your vagina’s skin is the most absorbent skin on your entire body, making it super susceptible to absorbing bleach and other unwanted chemicals that are often present in non-organic period products.

How→ It’s simple: we use 100% organic cotton and absolutely nothing else. No fragrance, bleach, or dyes. Our tampons fully decompose over the course of 4-5 months, compared to a non-organic tampon that can take 500-800 years. ohne tampons follow the standard absorbency rules set by the FDA and AHPMA: light tampons absorb up to 6 grams of liquid, regular 6-9g, super 9-12g, and super+ 12-15g.

The boring bits→ While ohne tampons are biodegradable, we do not recommend flushing them as tampons can cause blockages in your plumbing or septic systems. The AHPMA and FDA recommend that you change your tampon every 4-8 hours. You should never leave a tampon in for more than 8 hours, and always make sure to use the lightest level of absorbency possible.


Made in Europe.

100% organic cotton.

How To Use
  • Step 1

    Remove the applicator tampon from its wrapper. Give the cardboard applicator a little twist to free it up from the ‘locked’ position (usually just a tiny hole in the two pieces of cardboard holding them together). With your thumb and middle finger, hold the end of the outer applicator tube (the big bit with the tampon inside it) firmly using the anti-slip grip rings (little ridges around the middle of the length of the tampon applicator.

  • Step 2

    Ensure that the string is hanging down through the lower part of the applicator. With your other hand, spread your labia – the folds of skin around your vagina—outwards. Place the rounded end of the applicator at the opening of your vagina with the tip angled towards your lower back. push it inside you until the part of the applicator you have a grip on reaches the opening of your vagina.

  • Step 3

    Keeping a hold of the base of the outer tube, push the inner tube up as far as it will go inside the outer tube. This will push the tampon up through the outer tube and into your vagina. You will then be able to carefully remove both tubes. The tampon should feel comfortable inside you. If you can feel it (it may feel like like a dull ache or like it’s pushing against the sides of your vagina) then it needs to be gently pushed further inside until it feels comfortable and unnoticeable.

    Great and sustainable

    I love these and I have been hooked ever since i found out about Ohne in 2020 when they were on the How I Made it Happen podcast with Elizabeth Ogabi!

    It would be 5 stars if i felt the applicator was foolproof e.g a different design, another brand does this perfectly but I use Ohne because of the sustainability principles. Im not sure if the applicator i prefer can be made in a very sustainable way but i really hope they can be.

    Can't fault these

    I wanted something organic and body-friendly, and didn't like the idea of using the most common brand anymore and I honestly can't tell the difference between these and the other famous brands, so it's such a no-brainer to use these! They are the cardboard applicators, so not the smaller plastic ones, but honestly who cares lol these are great and the absorbency felt spot on.

    What not to love? They keep you comfortable, dry and they are good for the planet! Love also how easy is to customise to your liking. From delivery to what you need. You just need to try this.

    Would never go back to other brands now. Very much sold on Ohne - the most comfortable tampons.
