As female entrepreneurs are on the rise, so is the feminine hygiene movement. There’s also no coincidence that now more than ever, we are seeing more feminine care products that are made with cleaner and healthier ingredients. We want to make sure that we are introducing you to brands that you cannot only use, but that you can understand what they are made from. Rael, a company whose mission is to raise the standard of feminine care and address women’s changing needs throughout their lives has designed a collection of feminine hygiene and skincare products from organic pads and wipes to chemical free skincare that are all made with sustainable ingredients.
