When you’re wary about your health, a careful and deliberate look on your panty liner and sanitary napkin is a must: choose a product that’s sterilized, chemical and additive free with a strict, high sanitation standard. Just like local brand Jeunesse Anion sanitary napkins and liners, you can be assured that you’ll never run the risk of putting toxins in your body. Its high-grade cotton covers without scent, rayon, plastics, and synthetic material not only provide comfort, there’s also a peace of mind that there’s no building up of possible long-term harmful effects of chemicals from the inside of you. Available in leading supermarkets and Mercury Drugs nationwide, Jeunesse is also available in five variants: panty liner, ultra day pad, non-wing pad, ultra night pad, and all night pad. And is there’s anything highly beneficial added in its material, that’s the unique anion strip in the pad which may help bring comfort during dysmenorrhea, eliminates bacteria, acts as a natural deodorizer, and helps to fight against vaginal irritations and infections. The good news is you can now scour your favorite variants via www.lazada.com.ph with ease and convenience, complete with door-to-door delivery as long as LBC can reach you.
