Better for your body

No harsh chemicals or fragrances that may cause skin irritation, rashes or UTIs

Conventional pads contain plastics, synthetic fibres, artificial fragrances, deodorants, dyes and many other harsh chemicals that may be harmful to your health. Extremely sensitive permeable membranes of the vagina allow direct transfer of harmful toxins from conventional pads into your circulatory system. Since these pads remain in close contact with vaginal tissues for long durations, they can be seriously harmful for your health.

Made with banana fibre, bamboo fibre and corn starch, Sparkle pads do not contain harmful chemicals that may cause rashes, irritation, infections or UTIs. Unlike other period brands, we believe that your pads should protect you from more than just leaks. With feather-soft top layer made with bamboo fibre, super absorbent core made with banana fibre and leak-proof bottom layer made with corn starch, Sparkle pads are gentle to your skin and kind to the planet.

Better for the environment

Made with biodegradable and compostable bamboo fibre, banana fibre and corn-starch

On average, women use around 10,000 sanitary napkins in their lifetime. Conventional pads contain up to 90% plastic and remain unchanged in the landfill for around 600-800 years after disposal. Most pads contain around 3.5g of petrochemical plastic with every sanitary pad releasing around 21 grams of carbon dioxide in the process. With only 1 in 6 women using pads in India, around 150,000 tons of pad waste is generated per year.

If all of 355 million women in India start using pads, it would result in around 1,000,000 tons of pad waste annually.

Sanitary napkins that get dumped in acres of landfills get picked up by birds and animals and pollute land and water. Microscopic plastic particles that reach the ocean get transferred through multiple layers of the food chain and could end up on your plate.

Sparkle pads are different. Made with biodegradable and compostable banana fibre, bamboo fibre and corn starch, Sparkle pads can degrade in around 6 months of disposal. Compared to growing cotton, which is often used in “premium” pads, banana fibres require six times less water and ten times less fertilizers.

Better for farmers

Farmers earn extra income each harvest from banana stems agro-waste

Banana plants grow rapidly in just 9 to 12 months. Once bananas are harvested, these plants become agro waste. Farmers typically burn these discarded stems which pollutes the environment or they have to pay additional labour to remove them from their farms. We transform this agro-waste into sustainable raw material for making Sparkle pads. Banana farmers earn extra income each harvest by selling banana stems or fibre.

We transform this agro-waste into sustainable raw material for making Sparkle pads. Banana farmers earn extra income each harvest by selling banana stems or fibre.

As a by-product of fibre extraction process, we get nutritious banana stem sap which can be used as organic fertilizer. We also recover banana stem scutcher which can be used to produce vermicompost. By using locally sourced banana fibre, we not only reduce agro-waste, but also support circular economy and positively impact local agriculture, economy and the environment.

Better for local communities

Every time you purchase a Sparkle pad, we donate a pad to a girl in need

In India, millions of girls and women miss up to 50-60 days of school or work every year because they cannot afford menstrual hygiene products. Due to high cost of sanitary napkins, over 200 million girls, especially, in rural communities of India rely on old rags, plastic or ash during their periods. Such unhealthy methods may cause infections, rashes, and many other serious health problems.

With our Buy One, Give One initiative, every time you purchase a Sparkle pad, we donate a pad to a girl in need. When adolescent girls have access to sanitary napkins, they can participate in school, engage socially and carry out daily activities with dignity. According to UNICEF, around 23% of girls in India drop out of school once they reach puberty. When adolescent girls have access to sanitary napkins, school dropout rate decreases by 90%. Access to sanitary napkins can provide girls and women equal opportunities to reach their full potential at both school and work.
