Who we are
We are a family-owned and operated business founded in 2021, hoping to inspire change where the need for it is globally overlooked. Our shared values as both founders & activists for change translate to an unrelenting dedication to creating a better future for the menstruation industry.
As a Family & a Company, Femmé Organic is dedicated to driving a movement that de-complicates this market for good, using straightforward and honest practices & empowering all consumers who use the products.
What we do
Femmé Organic was born to spread the importance of high-quality period care products in which we can ensure that our products are:
•Made of 100% Organic Cotton
1. Women Health Benefits
Femmé Organic comprises a range of products that all have the key focus of providing health benefits to our consumers – this is our assurance.
-Our products are made from 100% Certified Organic Cotton; cotton is a pure and natural fibre known for its soft texture as well as being delicate on all types of skin.
- As our products are made from pure cotton natural fibres, we are able to promote the benefits associated with their organic makeup. In turn, the naturality and absence of harmful chemicals work to prevent the risk of itching, irritations and allergies.
-The cotton used in all products is purified without the use of chlorine or dioxins (these are chemicals that are often to whiten other substances such as cellulose, rayon & viscose).
-We pride ourselves on our commitment to avoiding artificial chemicals to scent our products. This environmentally and consumer conscious decision allows the user to avoid potential irritation or allergies due to friction or direct contact with artificial allergens.
-Gynaecologists, midwives and obstetricians recommend the use of cotton in intimate feminine hygiene and, in particular, for more sensitive, atopic skins and those that suffer allergies
-Our products ensure no pesticides are used & are hypoallergenic.
2. Environment Impact:
Femmè Organic prides itself on only providing the highest quality products for women’s health. In doing so, we make sure there are no compromises when it comes to our environmental footprint
-All of our products and packaging are made with natural, biodegradable & recyclable materials which have a less environmental impact with the goal of reducing waste wherever possible – we are one of the only distributors on the market who supply tampon units with paper packaging.
- Organic cotton allows us to strengthen the soil with crop rotation - this is achieved within an annual cycle that is fully conscious of the environment; present and future.
-During the manufacturing process of our organic products we use techniques that minimize the use of chemicals, water and energy. These practices occur at our hydroelectric plant that uses natural means to produce more electricity.
-All of our products are free from pesticides & synthetic fertilisers - our manufacturing processes for organic cotton allows us to reduce the usage of water & protect the quality of the soil.
3. Ethical Process
It is important to us that all processes at Femmé Organic are of the highest quality. Equally important is the commitment we have to our ethical production, so we have put in place the following measures:
-Femmé Organic has a 0% child and forced labour production process guarantee. Through this, we ensure that at no point during the cultivation and production chain do we use child or forced labour.
-All our workers are provided with a satisfactory wage that adheres to all local regulations. At no time are not they made to work hours that are excessive or in conditions that endanger their safety. Beyond this, we consciously seek to mitigate discrimination during the recruitment and all workers are given the right to join any partnership/collective representation.
-All kinds of forced labour and violent or inhumane treatment are prohibited, guaranteeing safe, hygienic working conditions.
-Farmers and manufacturers all receive appropriate training to create a safe working environment.
4. Products made for everyone
-Femme Organic works to provide unique products for all individuals regardless of their shape, size, ethnicity, faith OR gender. We make it clear that menstruation is not strictly a ‘women’s issue’ but rather an issue for PEOPLE who menstruate.
-Not everyone who needs our products identifies as female, and in no way do we intend to contribute to the ongoing experiences of gender dysphoria for those who are underrepresented in this market.
-Our products are made for the people with the goal of empowering consumers by giving them the option of high-quality safe products.
1. Share the Dignity
Share the Dignity is a women's charity in Australia, that works to make a real difference in the lives of those experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, or doing it tough.
We distribute period products to women, girls, and anyone who menstruates who needs support. When someone is doing it tough, the last thing on their mind should be dealing with their period.
2. Australian Marine Conservation Society
Over 50 years ago the Australian Marine Conservation Society was formed by a community of scientists and ocean conservationists, who came together to take action to protect our marine life.
Together we advocate for real, evidence based solutions based on the best available science. We work closely with research centres across the globe, and employ conservation experts to drive our work safeguarding the future of Australia's amazing oceans.
