There are a ton of benefits that make Tampax Pearl plastic tampons one of the best tampons out there. It has a Built-In Backup™ Braid that helps stop leaks by channeling them back into the core, protecting you in a way no other tampon does. And its plastic applicator is smooth and rounded, making it super easy to insert. Plus, its contoured Anti-Slip Grip makes the applicator easier to hold and position, which is great for girls just learning how to insert a tampon.
So exactly what are Tampax Pearl tampons made of? The tampon and string are made from a combination of cotton and rayon while the braid is made of polypropylene. Don’t let that throw you off. Rayon is a natural cellulose fiber found in trees and has been used to make tampons for over 25 years!
