Are Bodyform’s pads and panty liners safe to use?

All SCA´s hygiene products are safe to use for their intended purposes and contain common materials that have been safely used in a wide range of absorbent hygiene products over many years by millions of women globally. Raw materials are generally chosen for their ability to absorb and retain fluids, to avoid leakage and to provide comfort.

In addition, we collaborate with EDANA, the international trade association for the nonwovens and related industries, to ensure we comply with the highest environmental and product safety standards. Edanas’ members have voluntarily committed themselves to high levels of quality and safety of absorbent hygiene products.

This is currently not legally required. To help our consumers we declare if perfume has been added so that people who are sensitive to it are alerted.
