The Honest Company has grown exponentially in its short existence and is making exciting new products with serious eco-credentials. Their hypoallergenic tampons are made with 100 percent GOTS certified organic cotton. The applicator is made of at least 90 percent plant derived materials and is phthalate-free. The Honest Company would get 4 stars if they just ditched the plastic in their applicators.
These tampons are available in three absorbencies, have woven cords (so no need to worry about glues), and have a good record for being leak-free, odor-free, comfortable, and easy to use.
The Honest Company’s Honest Free Guarantee states that their tampons are made without: rayon, polyester, fragrances, deodorants, glues and adhesives, phthalates, chlorine or chlorine dioxide processing, polypropylene, myreth-3-myristate, synthetic zeolites, alcohol ethoxylates, glycerol, glycerol esters, polysorbate-20, or antibacterial agents.
The Honest Company is a company that gives back, with one exciting business endeavor including funding a research facility at Mount Sinai to help investigate how various chemicals affect human health. They are also a certified B Corp and are involved in advocacy work to help promote better regulation of personal care products in the U.S.
The Honest Company offers tampons in Regular and Super absorbencies with applicators, and in Regular, Super, and Super Plus absorbencies without applicators.

The Honest Company is an exciting new player in this industry, with a clear commitment to eco-friendly, healthy product development. That said, their use of plastic in their tampon applicators is disappointing and is why they’re still beaten by Natracare and Organyc for top place in this category. As an independent company with an otherwise solid track record for commitment to sustainability and health, they’re arguably now a better option than Seventh Generation and other contenders such as Bon, Lola, Cora, and L Organic.
