Growth of e-commerce market
Organic tampons are relatively difficult to find in grocery stores due to lack of prior product knowledge. However, retailers are focusing on enhancing the online shopping experience through effective initiatives, which include online education and targeted marketing. This has led to an exponential improvement in online sales over the past few years. This has increased the comfort level of consumers in buying this category of products online. For instance, e-commerce sites like Amazon are selling a wide range of natural and organic tampons from different companies worldwide. They also offer discounts on bulk purchases. There is a shift in shopping patterns where customers are adopting digital avenues for research on information and pricing. Consumers prefer to compare prices before investing in a particular tampon product, which is possible through online chats and forums.
Increase in product miniaturization
The increasing need for comfort and convenience in the use of natural and organic tampons has led to several vendors continually developing better products that cater to such needs. Vendors in the market are continuously distinguishing themselves from others through product innovation. They are developing high-quality tampons in small sizes, which provide the same benefits as the older versions.
Women are also more likely to adopt small-sized tampons as this will ease the insertion of the product and will increase the comfort level, especially the ones leading an active lifestyle. It will also lead to tampon adoption by new users as they would be more comfortable and less fearful of using a small-sized product. The miniaturization of products will enable vendors to increase their sales margins.
Rising demand for biodegradable products
Natural and organic tampons are made from non-genetically modified and certified organic cotton. They are free from dyes, rayon, fragrances, and all other risks that accompany rayon. Certified organic cotton and chlorine-free tampons reduce the number of chlorinated toxins and pesticides in the environment and help keep these toxins out of the body.
These tampons function in the same way as conventional tampons and come with a variety of absorbency levels, with or without an applicator. It is recommended to use the lowest absorbency organic tampons to avoid any potential risk of toxic shock syndrome. Organic tampons are only slightly more expensive than conventional tampons.
“Consumer in the Americas and EMEA prefer these tampons as they are safe, biodegradable, and made of 100% organic materials,” says Amber.
