Moon Times Organic Cloth Pads & Panty Liners;
The soft and comfortable alternative to disposable pads!
Not a step back in time but a positive step towards our planet’s well being! Even if you only use Moon Times products at night it will reduce the amount of sanitary waste we women produce with ‘disposable’ products.
They suitable for all women of all ages but especially make an ideal gift for young women new to their menses and for new mothers who need soft cloth against their delicate tissue after giving birth. They can also be used by women who suffer from slight incontinence.
Moon Times pads and panty liners are hand made in the UK!
How do they work? Inserts (small liner) go inside the pocket of the pad (or a few if you are bleeding heavily) choosing cotton, hemp or towelling inserts. The whole pad (including inserts) gets changed when you need a fresh pad.

Moon Times pads are an ideal gift for:
young women new to their menses
new mothers who need soft cloth against their delicate tissue after giving birth
Moon Times are made with organic cotton flannelette and fair trade organic cotton. Inserts are available in organic cotton, hemp and towelling for extra absorbency. Flannelette is both soft and absorbent and used as the ‘top’ layer- next to your skin. You put an ‘insert’ (a small liner) inside the pocket of the pad (or a few if you are bleeding heavily) choosing cotton, hemp or towelling inserts. Pads have wings and fasten with velcro/press studs so they are very secure!
There are a few colour themes- plain organic (white or naturally dyed colours), dark colours** and patterned* (*prints of flowers, butterflies, animal prints, rabbits, teddies etc dependant on what is available)
** The top fabric on the red/dark and patterned flannelette pads are not organic
When you first use Moon Times, it may seem as if your flow is heavier or even lighter than usual- this is natural- I believe that some of the chemicals used in other sanitary products can affect the amount we bleed-also we may not be used to seeing our blood that closely!
Moon Times also supply other ‘moon time’ products; moon cups & sponges, herbal teas, Women’s Wisdom Booklets and much more.
We believe a healthy appreciation of our bodies and ourselves as women can be learnt through menstruation.
We believe when women are aware of the benefits of a sustainable, healthy, economically viable and comfortable alternative, they appreciate the contribution they can make by choosing alternative menstrual products.
We also believe women deeply appreciate learning about alternative and positive ways to think about their bodies.
