Gently Inserts are mostly made from natural and biodegradable materials and of course they are fragrance and chlorine free.
The Contact Layer is made from Bamboo which makes it very soft. There is also a Bamboo leak guard which ensures leaks don’t occur and is also very soft against the skin. We like Bamboo for its biodegradable characteristics but also because it is naturally antibacterial and wicks moisture away from the skin.
Our water proof back layer is made from a combination PBAT and CSA and is certified for Industrial Composting Standards for Europe (EN13432) and the US (ASTM D6400). This means that Gently doesn’t leak in use but that it breaks down in nature quickly. A recent study by Lismore Council in NSW showed that Gently Inserts biodegraded in only 2 months.
