Oi Organic Cotton

Integrity is at the heart of Oi. Our promise to you is that we will always strive to be the best we can be, from the packaging to the product inside. Oi tampons, pads and panty liners are all made with certified organic cotton.

As we introduce new products we will work hard to be the best we can; sometimes this means being on the journey to organic, to be as healthy as possible and as environmentally friendly as we can. For example, our Oi Cup is not organic but as it lasts on average 3 years its use means the removal of over 700 tampons or pads from the world during those 3 years.


Our organic certification standards.

Certified Organic means that the cotton we use to make our products has been grown according to strict standards as verified by independent certification bodies such as GOTS (Global organic textile standard) BioGro and the FDA.

GOTS is based on the IFOAM family of standards for fibers and as such has environmental, technical quality/human toxicity and social criteria which covers issues such as child and indentured labour, safe working conditions, hours of work/rest, discrimination/equal rights and a living wage convention.

These certifications include rigorous farm, field and processing facilities, detailed record keeping and periodic testing of soil and water to ensure that growers and handlers are meeting the set standards.

Organic products contain no chemicals, no harmful preservatives or additives and are GMO free.

Fair Trade

Fair Trade is a certification for products produced in developing countries that do not have industrial labour laws. Our products are manufactured in first world, developed countries (Europe) that have fair labour laws and working conditions. GOTS certification has a social criteria based on the key norms of the International Labor Organization (ILO) must be met by all processors and manufacturers.

Organic standards prohibit the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) so you can rest assured that all our products are 100% GMO free.
