Soft-Tampons are the ideal complement to conventional tampons. Swimming, sauna, sport, nudism and sexual intercourse no longer have to fall victim to the natural cycle thanks to Soft-Tampons. If you have your days and still want to have fun swimming or doing sports, then use Soft-Tampons instead of conventional tampons or pads. The Soft-Tampons do not require any tedious tapes, they are ultra-soft and adapt flexibly to your anatomy.
Soft-Tampons give you the freedom where otherwise visible hygiene articles disturb.
Soft-Tampons have also been certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®.
This worldwide standardized and independent certification system meets the highest safety requirements according to Class 1. OEKO-TEX® has tested the materials for harmful substances:
Soft-Tampons meet the strict criteria that also apply to baby textiles and are suitable for daily contact with your body without hesitation!
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
For instance Soft-Tampons are available at Rossmann and in pharmacies.
No, Soft-Tampons are by no means a contraceptive as they do not kill sperm! After removal, the sperm can still migrate towards the uterus.
Discoloration of the foam may occur before the shelf life has expired, but is completely harmless. The tampons can still be used. If the Soft- Tampons have been exposed to UV radiation in the form of daylight or artificial light and atmospheric oxygen, under unfavourable circumstances the dye may degrade and discolour. This is a normal process and does not affect the properties or purity of the foam. Soft- Tampons are manufactured and packaged under hygienic conditions. The material meets the strict criteria of the Ökotex standard and is very kind to the skin (Study Dermatest GmbH 2012). Due to the sensitive area of application, we deliberately do not use colour-stabilizing additives.
We're not aware of any contraindications.
As with other hygiene articles for the period, the tampons should simply be disposed of with the household waste. Please put the outer packaging into the yellow sack and into the waste paper.
The wearing period must be adapted to the strength of the period. On stronger days a change after 3 to 5 hours is recommended, on weaker days the soft tampon can be worn for approx. 5 to 8 hours. After sexual intercourse without a condom, the tampon should be replaced immediately.
Soft-Tampons are adapted to the average anatomy of the woman. However, the intimate area of each woman is individually shaped.
For this reason, Soft-Tampons are not suitable for all women equally. One, and/or 'woman' often finds out this only with the application.
Since a Soft-Tampon can do without strings, it can slip behind the cervix in unfavourable cases and is then more difficult to access.
In rare cases, women cannot remove a tampon themselves and then a visit to a gynaecologist is unavoidable.
According to gynaecologists, this also happens with cellulose tampons, e.g. if the thread breaks.
This circumstance is pointed out in the instructions for use.
No, no more or less than when using a conventional tampon, if you wash your hands before and after. In contrast to conventional tampons, Soft-Tampons are even hygienically packaged.
No more or less than with conventional tampons, if the following rules are observed: Soft-Tampons should be changed as often as possible (max. wearing time 8 hours). When inserting the Soft-Tampon, make sure your hands are clean. Especially at night tampons should not be used.
To be sure, you should talk to your gynaecologist.
Yes! The surface of the Soft-Tampons is soft and cannot damage the condom.
It is important that the Soft-Tampon is inserted deep enough - directly in front of the cervix. In addition, in women who tend to lack lubrication, the entrance to the vagina could also be dry immediately after insertion of the tampon. In this case we recommend the use of a lubricant, e.g. AQUAglide. This will ensure that your partner will not feel the soft tampon. However, depending on the length of the genitals, it can rarely be completely ruled out.
We recommend to change Soft-Tampons directly after the traffic to prevent infections.
Since the Soft-Tampon is already compressed in the body, this danger does not exist.
Wash your hands before inserting the Soft-Tampons.
For easier insertion, we recommend that you apply some lubricant, e.g. AQUAglide, to the tampon or moisten it with clean water - then squeeze well to obtain maximum fluid absorption. The easiest way to insert the tampon into the toilet is to put one leg up (e.g. on a chair). Place your index finger on the tampon's trough, grasp the tampon with your thumb and middle finger on the sides and squeeze it together to form the grip tab. Open the labia with the other hand and push the tampon into the vagina with your index and/or middle finger until the side of the tampon touches the cervix.
You should wait at least 6 weeks before using any type of tampon.
The weekly flow is bacterial, so it should not be hindered from draining. The bacteria would multiply very quickly.
The PUR foam of the Soft-Tampons consists of polyaddition products of isocyanates and polyether polyols. It does not contain latex or rubber and can be used safely by latex allergy sufferers.
Midwives recommend its use even during pregnancy, as the soft tampon can prevent the penetration of bacteria.
Consult your gynaecologist before use if you are using a spiral with a slightly protruding return cord for contraception. As a rule, there is no risk of the spiral being accidentally pulled out with the tampon. However, experience has shown that minimal bleeding (commonly known as spotting) can cause the end of the thread to stick to the top of the tampon. Then the spiral can be accidentally pulled out when changing the tampon.
We also offer the Soft-Tampons in the variant "Mini". However, the material of the tampons is so variable that it always adapts to the female body shape. Conventional cotton tampons swell up and Soft-Tampons already have their final size. The foam of the Soft-Tampons can be easily compressed during insertion.
It is important that the tampon is inserted deep enough - directly in front of the cervix. In addition, in women who tend to lack lubrication, the vaginal entrance could be very dry immediately after inserting the tampon. In this case, a lubricant such as AQUAglide or BIOglide should also be used.
The tampon can be easily removed by pulling it out with your index finger or middle finger by the integrated grip straps. If it is still difficult to remove the vagina, we recommend that you squat down or sit on the toilet with your legs spread, as this will reduce the depth of the vagina from 9 to 10 cm to about 4 to 5 cm.
It is generally recommended to use the Soft-Tampons on days with heavy bleeding, as a full tampon will then become very soft and can be easily pulled out. If the grip tab is not felt, simply form the index and middle fingers into "tweezers".
Please use each tampon only once, as this will no longer guarantee hygienic safety and high absorbency and can lead to infections. We therefore strongly advise against washing out the soft tampon and wearing it again.
The packaging consists of cardboard, plastic and aluminium foil, which are 100% recyclable. The Soft-Tampon consists of a special environmentally friendly foam which is completely thermally recyclable. Therefore, there is absolutely nothing against Soft-Tampons from an environmental point of view.
The Soft-Tampons consists of a medical sponge material (polyurethane) without chemical substances in order to exclude internal irritations.
Soft-Tampons cannot be lost in the body or get into the uterus. The opening of the uterus is far too small for a tampon to pass through.
The best way to remove the tampon is to squat down and press on the lower abdomen. Pull the integrated grip tab out with your index finger or middle finger. It is generally recommended to use the Soft-Tampons only on days with heavy bleeding, because if a tampon is soaked with blood, it becomes very soft and can be easily pulled out.
If, in rare cases, the tampon cannot be reached, please consult your gynaecologist.
As with normal tampons, the sensitive hymen may be damaged during insertion. We therefore recommend that young women who have not yet had sexual intercourse wear bandages.
Here, too, it is the same as with conventional tampons. You should use a fresh tampon before swimming and refrain from swimming if there is heavy bleeding.
Wearing the Soft-Tampons even makes a lot of sense when swimming, as this can reduce the penetration of chlorinated or possibly contaminated water into the vagina.
If you use it, you should be able to handle your body a little and be familiar with its anatomy. Then nothing stands in the way of its use.
It is not necessary to remove the tampon every time you go to the toilet. The vagina and urethra are separate organs, each with its own opening. How to change depends only on the strength of the bleeding. Important: Do not exceed the maximum wearing time of 8 hours.
- Soft-Tampons do not have a return strap and are therefore the ideal and discreet alternative for activities such as sauna, sports, swimming or the act of love.
- Soft-Tampons consist of soft, hygienic and dermatologically well-tolerated foam that adapts to the female anatomy.
- Soft-Tampons can be worn during sexual intercourse and are hardly noticeable for the partner.
Soft-Tampons are individually sterile packed and, when used as intended, extremely hygienic in use.
The Soft-Tampons are characterized by their low own weight of only 2 grams. Despite their low weight, the liquid absorption capacity of the Soft-Tampons is above average – comparable to the absorption capacity of a conventional cotton tampon.
No, with a tampon, various parameters such as mucous membrane compatibility, absorbency, shape, etc. must be taken into account. Therefore, hygienic and safe self-made production is not possible.
