Continuon is a brand that is all about being able to continue on living life to the full when bodily changes happen. One
key customer group for them is women who suffer incontinence during
pregnancy and after childbirth. They make reusable incontinence underwear with
black bamboo charcoal pad built in that absorbs up to 300ml of liquid.
This means women can confidently head off to yoga, a run or laugh and
sneeze without worrying about embarrassing leakage.
Small amounts of incontinence is actually pretty common, especially after giving birth, and the nice thing with this underwear is that it was comfortable and didn't really feel that much different from other underwear. Because it's washable, it can save a great deal over buying disposable products constantly.
Smart Cups are their brand of
menstrual cup, and these mean no pads or tampons are needed ever again,
and save thousands of dollars as well as a lot if unnecessary plastic
waste going to landfill. Menstrual cups are a little tricky to get used to, but I had no issues with leakage. Although it looked like it would be huge to insert, it actually was no less comfortable than a tampon. It also absorbed quite well all day long, and was no less hygienic to use than any other feminine hygiene products. In fact, I used it on a recent camping trip, and it stayed put with hiking, and was very easy to use, even while on the go.
Continuon brands are new to the market, recently launched by a stay at home mom. You can learn more on Facebook. You can also check out Eco Parenting Life for more eco-friendly products.
