Time to Shout it Out About: The Four Unspeakables Inside Your Unmentionables

The number of US adults with incontinence issues is growing and it’s not just Baby Boomers or the grandparents buying up diapers and pads. According to cotton industry association, Cotton Inc., of the 115 million known sufferers in the U.S., the fastest growing population in this market is obese African-American women between the ages of 20 and 30. Heck, people of all ages sometimes need something extra down there.

So, let’s stop whispering and really talk about what you’re putting in your pants.

Most adult diapers and pads contain the following Unspeakables:

  • Polypropylene (PP)

A plastic film extruded over whatever material the pad or liner is made of, that touches your private parts. Yes, the same thermoplastic polymer used in carpet, 
plastic bottles, and truck liners.

  • Polyethylene (PE)

Another plastic used to wick water away from the skin. Still, it’s plastic touching your most private parts. I just threw up a little writing that.

  • Manufactured Chemical-Pulp: Rayon, viscose, or lyocell (Tencelâ)

Yes, wood chips and sawdust dissolved in chemicals to form a frothy goop then put through a long chemical process that forms fibers then bleaches the fibers to be white in color. On a scale of 1-5 I give that 4.5 Ughs and 5 yikes!

  • Petrochemical Materials: Polyester

Good old-fashioned leisure suit polyester. Synthetic material bleached to be white and made to resemble something natural when it’s the farthest thing from natural. Good for the disco, but not good for your hoo-hoo or beans and franks.

Wouldn’t 100% Purified Cotton be better against your most private and sensitive parts? Natural pharmaceutical grade cotton, purified of all toxins, residual chemicals, and contaminants? That’s a rhetorical question, we all know it is.
