Ever think about the content of your most intimate products?…Maxim did!
Maxim is a softer, safer and natural alternative to standard conventional feminine hygiene products. Maxim Hygiene products replace harsh chemical ingredients found in your every day products with the beneficial qualities of organic and natural cotton. In doing so, Maxim products address and resolve major health and environmental concerns associated with the use and production of conventional feminine hygiene and cotton products. Maxim is a little particular when it comes to hygiene so whether it’s “that time of the month” or any other time of the month, we think it’s very important that women receive information about what is going into the most intimate parts of their bodies. We have provided some helpful information below about Maxim Hygiene’s unique qualities to help guide your decision making in helping you to understand the importance of keeping your intimate feminine products 100% organic and natural.

Made with 100% Certified Organic and Natural Cotton
A more naturally breathable fiber that’s better for your body, earth and health. Many brands use what looks like cotton in other feminine hygiene and cosmetic puff products that is not really 100% cotton. It is usually a blend of wood fluff pulp and synthetics like Rayon/Viscose. These cotton alternatives are not as natural, soft on the body, or environmentally friendly as cotton itself. Maxim products are made with 100% certified organic and natural cotton. Maxim is the only 100% cotton-based hygiene line on the market. Cotton’s natural breathable quality helps prevent the risk of irritation and makes it softer on the body and better for the earth.
Maxim also uses organic cotton; the purest form of cotton. Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, sewage sludge, irradiation or genetic engineering. Instead, organic farmers use natural alternative methods and tools that help enhance soil quality and biodiversity and protect the air and water on which we depend. Who wouldn’t prefer their most intimate products to be made from only all organic and natural methods?…all while protecting the air and water we depend on!
For a softer, non-irritable and plastic-less feel. Many brands use synthetics that are man-made chemically composed versions of natural materials like cotton. When synthetics come in contact with the body they can create unfavorable conditions leading to allergy, irritation, discomfort and even that slight discomfort you may have experienced recently with your conventional products. Maxim products are made with 100% pure organic and natural cotton, leaving no trace of synthetics touching the body. Unlike synthetics, only the natural breathable qualities of 100% cotton can reduce the risk of irritation and make a softer feeling product. Also, cotton’s entire product life cycle, being renewable and biodegradable, makes it one of the most environmentally friendly oriented fibers. Compare that to most synthetic or chemical fibers which are petroleum based and either made from nonrenewable resources or less renewable, like tree-based wood fluff pulp.
Wood Fluff Pulp Free
More breathable and absorbent & uniquely saving trees. Many brands use wood fluff pulp for the absorbent core material in sanitary pads. Wood fluff pulp is a tree byproduct. Natural forests are being abused and destroyed in the process of obtaining wood fluff pulp. Maxim sanitary pads’ absorbent cores are made of 100% Natural Cotton instead of wood fluff pulp because cotton is more waste efficient, easily cultivated and its production has less of an overall negative impact on the natural environment. Cotton is a more renewable crop that can be harvested once a year, whereas trees take 6 –12 years to grow. Also, once the trees are harvested and cut down they go through a very harsh chemical treatment in order to break them down in to the cotton-like and looking absorbent core you’re used to seeing in other pads. Do not be fooled – even though it looks like cotton, it might not actually be cotton.
No more rashes, even for those with the most sensitive skin. Other brands contain synthetics and other irritants such as fragrances which are not natural and can cause irritation and discomfort. The plastics, viscose, wood fluff pulp, perfume, super-absorbents and other petro-chemical fillers found in standard feminine hygiene products creates what’s called a “heat-dampness micro-climate” in the body which is an ideal environment for encouraging the growth of bacteria, fungi and other irritation-causing subjects. Maxim uses natural 100% certified organic cotton and eliminates irritable materials like synthetics and fragrances., All Maxim products are hypoallergenic and 100% irritation free. Some women who experience vaginal irritations on a regular basis especially around the time of their menstrual cycle might not be aware that the source of irritation can be coming from the use of conventional products that are made with irritating materials. Women who suffer from vulva-vaginal irritations when using conventional feminine hygiene products find relief in Maxim products after using them for only a short period of time, unique to Maxim products only!
