We're going to talk to you about organic cotton panties. In fact, many health professionals advise you to wear cotton panties during your cycle, but also during the menstrual cycle. periods. 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 your 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 want 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 of maintaining healthy flora and avoiding inconveniences and infections, both during and outside the periods period. In fact, mycoses are also favored by hormonal changes, which is the case during periods since it is specifically a hormonal change that provokes periods. This is why many women complain of recurrent mycoses around their periods period.


Why choose organic cotton over conventional cotton?

But cotton is good, and organic is even better, since it avoids putting your vulva in contact with fabrics containing pesticides or allergens that increase irritation, discomfort and vaginal dryness, and also unbalance the flora.

It is for all these reasons that Elia has chosen to create a range of menstrual panties in organic cotton that respects your body and our planet while guaranteeing feminine models, even during your periods.
