Find out more about our Menstrual Panty Detergent

Elia s has teamed up with Les Lavandiers, an ecological laundry brand, to design a special allergen-free menstrual panty detergent, perfect for respecting your intimate flora. Natural and ecological, it is traditionally made in France, and comes in the form of flakes to be melted. Each sachet provides 1 liter of detergent for our menstrual lingerie.

A special detergent for periods knickers to prolong their absorption.

Its formulation is dedicated to the care of your menstrual underwear, but also to all absorbent household linen (washable towels, washable baby diapers, washable cotton pads, bath towels...). Its composition is boosted with bicarbonate of soda, compared with conventional detergents, to neutralize bad odors and bacteria more effectively, without the need for chemicals. This special period pants detergent also contains 100% cold-saponified olive oil soap, with no added glycerine to avoid clogging fabric fibers, to prolong the life and absorption of your periods panties.

How to make your own special menstrual-panty detergent

  1. Boil 1 liter of water and pour the sachet of detergent into a glass bottle or jar of the same capacity (giving a second life to a glass fruit juice bottle, for example!).
  2. Pour the boiling water into the bottle and stir with a long wooden spoon or stick, without burning yourself!
  3. Allow to cool and pour a dose (about 2/3 of a mustard glass) into your 30 to 40° machine cycle.

This detergent has a neutral scent, but you can add a few drops of essential oils after step 2, when cold (except for pregnant and breast-feeding women). However, we recommend that you reacclimatize your nose to the smell of real clean laundry, rather than synthetic perfumes, and avoid overuse of essential oils, which are immiscible in water and toxic to aquatic environments. And did you know: "clean" has no smell! For a more natural deodorizing action, use a little white vinegar in the softening tank.

Ecological detergent

Our detergent uses virtually inexhaustible resources for French baking soda, from chalk and salt. The inner lining of the kraft detergent sachet is made of PLA from corn starch, while our label is printed by an Imprim'Vert-certified printer on FSC-certified paper. As our detergent contains no stabilizers or chemicals, it's perfectly normal for it to biphasize after cooling: simply shake it before use to restore its uniform appearance.

Not suitable for wool and silk - Suitable for hand or machine washing.

Avoid for heavy flows

For the price, I'm very disappointed. I bought special heavy flow panties and they didn't even last 3 hours. The fabric lets the blood through and doesn't keep its promises. Considering the price I paid for them, I'm very frustrated.

I've been using another brand of menstrual panties for years, but it was time for a change, so I turned to this brand on the advice of an influencer.

Hello Justine,

Many thanks for your valuable feedback, which we take very seriously!

Our knickers are made to last up to 12 hours and up to 4 pads in terms of absorption for our most absorbent models, the shorty and the cyclist, but this is a maximum estimate which of course depends on the flow of each one, its viscosity, your moment in the cycle, whether you bleed forwards or backwards, your activities and positions during the day etc....

Your model is watertight in the absorbent zone, but if the panty's maximum absorption capacity has been reached, leakage generally occurs on the sides and through the seams - unfortunately, this is the critical point found in all menstrual panties!

What's more, some women have a very central flow, which accumulates in the center of the panty, the narrowest area, causing it to overflow rapidly, while the rest of the absorbent zone is far from saturated. Those whose flow direction is forward or backward generally benefit from a longer wearing time before saturation of the absorbent zone!
This is by no means inevitable, as it is possible to use interlabial petals to redirect the flow and thus achieve a better distribution of bleeding.
Don't forget to wash your lingerie once or twice before wearing it, to maximize its absorption capacity: https: //www.elia-lingerie.com/pages/conseils-dentretien

In the meantime, we recommend that you change your clothes more often, or use period pants in addition to protection if this is not sufficient on its own.

We're sorry we couldn't meet your expectations, but periods briefs aren't always the magic bullet for every woman.

Don't hesitate to test them in various conditions (with or without additional protection, at the end or beginning of periods etc...) to find out what suits your flow best!

Have a wonderful day,

Very good product but pouch opened on arrival

I've ordered them twice now and I'm quite happy with them. This time, however, the pouches arrived open and I inhaled some of the powder. This was not pleasant. Customer service was very quick to respond and very professional.
Otherwise, the detergent washes well and has no toxic smell.

Very good for panties

I do my own washing with olive oil Marseille soap, which didn't totally remove the smell of the panties, then I read on Elia that olive oil soaps were not recommended for menstrual panties. So I switched to this detergent and it's perfect! The panties are clean, they smell clean and I'm sure they're not damaged by this detergent. So, perfect!
PS: I always tend to have a chemical reaction when I put the powder in the hot water, which causes it to foam up a lot all at once. You have to be careful to add the powder gradually and not all at once.

Open bag in delivery package

Hello Virginie,

Thank you for sharing your opinion.

Our detergent is specially formulated for our delicate lingerie.
To make it easier to dissolve, we recommend heating the liquid in a bain-marie.

It's not normal for a bag to be delivered open. If you notice this type of problem, don't hesitate to let us know so that our after-sales service can take care of it;

Beautiful day,

Our prices

Why are there no sales?

At Elia, we've opted for 100% French manufacturing, valuing every link in the
production chain: from the cotton manufacturer, to the seamstress who will make your panties, to the order picker.

Sales and fast-fashion are often the result of overproduction of textile products, at the cost of a disastrous ecological footprint and a waste of polluting raw materials during manufacture. So at Elia, we prefer to produce exactly what we need, with natural, high-quality raw materials. Our pricing policy is to offer you the best quality at the fairest price. We have chosen to produce everything in France to ensure traceability and maximum comfort of our panties, without compromise. 

As part of our referral and loyalty program, however, you can quickly benefit from advantages that enable you to acquire our beautiful lingerie at a more attractive price.

Is a pair of underpants from periods a saving?

Absolutely! If you use disposable sanitary protection, that's just as much money and waste going into the garbage can every cycle. In the long term, periods panties are more economical. But beyond the cost savings you make with
menstrual underwear, using periods underwear is above all a commitment to the planet (zero waste, fewer pollutants...) and to your body
(100% organic cotton, no risk of toxic shock syndrome...).

Take the test and find out how much you could save with our savings calculator.
