We're going to talk to you about organic cotton panties. Indeed, many health professionals advise you to wear cotton panties during your cycle, but also during your period. Today, we're going to tell you why.

What are the advantages of organic cotton panties?

The advantage of wearing cotton panties is that they allow your vulva and vagina to breathe. We can't stress this enough: inside the vagina, your vaginal flora is made up of good bacteria that protect you. However, this flora is very sensitive and can quickly change and no longer protect you. This can be the case, for example, when you wear synthetic clothing or clothing that's a little too tight, which creates a warm, moist environment that can upset your flora and lead to vaginal infections such as vaginal mycosis. Vaginal mycosis is a vaginal infection caused by a disturbance in the flora. Contrary to what you might think, it's not necessarily an infection caused by an external fungus; it can be a fungus which is present in a completely physiological way in the vaginal flora, but which in certain contexts can modify itself and multiply in a pathogenic way. To give you an example, the fungus involved in most vaginal mycoses is Candida Albicans, which thrives particularly in warm, humid environments (if you'd like to know more about vaginal mycoses, you can check out the Instagram account @les.conseils.pharma.de.lea, or our Youtube video on the subject).

Wearing cotton panties is therefore an excellent way to keep your flora healthy and avoid inconveniences and infections, during or outside your period. In fact, mycoses are also favored by hormonal changes, which is the case during menstruation, since it's specifically a hormonal change that causes menstruation. That's why many women complain of recurrent fungal infections around the time of their period.

Why choose organic cotton over conventional cotton?

Cotton is good, but organic is even better, as it avoids exposing the vulva to fabrics containing pesticides or allergens that increase irritation, discomfort and vaginal dryness, as well as destabilizing the flora.

It's for all these reasons that Elia has chosen to create a range of organic cotton menstrual panties that respect your body and our planet, while guaranteeing feminine designs, even during your period.
