Women’s Voices for the Earth, a national women’s health nonprofit, claims it found toxic chemicals in Procter & Gamble’s Always menstrual pads, but the Cincinnati company says the claims aren’t relevant.
The group commissioned an analysis of the pads in August that revealed the emission of carcinogens and reproductive and developmental toxins that aren’t disclosed on the product labels. It claims the toxins are present in scented, unscented and Infinity versions of Always ultra-thin pads. They include styrene, chloromethane, chloroethane, chloroform and acetone.
