We believe that everyone has a right to know what goes into their body and that's why all of our TOP products are clean and green. To ensure our full line of products meet even the most rigorous set of standards, we connect with experts in the industry to get their take. Recently, Dr. James Burke worked with the TOP team and this is what he had to say:
In 1979 when I was in my second year of medical school, Proctor and Gamble mailed out 43 million free samples of a new highly absorbent tampon called Rely. I have enclosed a picture of their synthetic product. By the fall of my next year we were reading about hundreds of cases where menstruating women were dying of a Staph infection that produced a toxin. More than 25 women had died by September of 1980. The CDC, Physicians, University centers, my teachers were searching for an answer to a syndrome where the numbers of cases were rising, looking like an epidemic. That September, the CDC was able to link Toxic Shock Syndrome to Rely tampons and the product was recalled by P&G 2 days before their report was due to be published. On December 12, 2018, KIMBERLY-CLARK recalled one of their tampon products that fell apart when removed sending women to physicians, like me, to check for retained pieces. In 1979 women and their daughters did not have the choices women now have in 2019. In my opinion TOP provides women with a perfect choice, a safe, organic, pure cotton solution that does not dissolve during use.
It is our mission to provide the very best for you and generations to come. Better for you. Better for the planet. Better for others.
