We started Lilypads when we learnt girls in Kenya were exchanging sex for sanitary products. We now work with organisations around the world to provide a safe and affordable alternative, our reusable pads. In some communities, we sell the pads at a subsidised price but for some, this is still too expensive and therefore we donate what we can. If you'd like to support this you can purchase this pack and we'll donate it to someone who needs it. The pack contains three day pads, a night pad, a carry bag and instructions for use.

Every pack will come with care instructions.

Soak or rinse the pads in cold water before washing- this is optional but can help remove stains if the pads are not getting washed straight away.

Pop the eco-friendly pads in the washing machine with your regular washing (apart from bedsheets), run a cold wash (30 degrees or less) and add your normal detergent. (No fabric softener or bleach). To dry, either line dry, air dry or dry on a radiator. Please do not tumble dry or iron.

Top: 100% polyester, Core: 100% polyester, Bottom: 75% Polyester 25% PU.

What Pad Is Right For Me?

Light

You: Wear the lightest absorbency pad and change it because the packet says, rather than because you’re worried about leaking

For you: Our Little One is our pantiliner – it’s super thin and you’ll barely feel it

Medium

You: Change your pad every four hours roughly on a normal absorbency pad

For you: Our Superstar Pad will last you twice as long as a normal disposable or get our Full Range pack with day pads, night pads and pantiliners

Heavy

You: Three hours between changing is as long as you can currently hope for on a heavy day

For you: Our superstar pad is able to absorb twice as much as a disposable, or you can use our Night Pad if you want even more security

Tampon or Cup User

You: Love your tampon or cup but are worried about occasional leaks

For you: Our Back-up Pad is perfect to stop any worries about occasional leaks

How Many Period Pads Should I Buy?

This is really up to you and depends on how heavy your flow is, how long your period lasts and how often you want to do the washing. You may want to start with a smaller pack, to begin with, or if you are feeling confident, feel free to dive right in. About six reusable sanitary pads are a good starting point, and you can add as you go

Additional Info and Reviews

Our reusable period pads are thinner, comfier and cheaper than disposable sanitary pads. Swapping to reusable products may seem like an added inconvenience, but the comfort will make up for it. Using our reusable pads for their life can reduce the carbon emissions created by using disposable pads by up to 90%.

Our pads are made of a moisture-wicking later keeping you dry, a super absorbent core and a leakproof bottom later. The soft wings lay flat next to your legs, preventing side leaks and ensuring comfort. The reusable sanitary pads are kept in place using poppers that attach under your underwear.

The pad is 2mm thin and 20cm long. It can be worn by those with a ‘regular’ flow for up to 6 hours. After wearing, simply pop them in the washing machine on a cold wash, air or radiator dry and reuse. We recommend replacing the reusable period pads after 2 years.
