There are two things we hate as women: discrimination and periods. There’s probably more to the list like cheating spouses and bad hair days but period probably tops the list because of the way it affects us physically and emotionally which causes our self esteem to plummet. One of the problems we women face when it comes that time of the month is leakage. Every one of us women would have gotten up one day only to find the map of Australia on our bedsheets or worse, while at work or school.
We restrict ourselves during that time of the month because we worry about staining our clothes and being bloated. All these can cause emotional and physical duress not to mention the dreaded cramps that come along for some girls. Up to 60% of us girls find it hard to concentrate on daily tasks which include being active and fashionable.
THE LONGER THE BETTER?
Longer pads are for women with heavier flows and for night usage because we have the pads on for longer durations. Pads should always be changed every 3 to 5 hours depending on your flow and also for hygiene purposes. Night pads are usually longer towards the back because fluid flows backwards when you’re lying down thanks to gravity but research has proven that longer or thicker pads to not neccesary provide the best protection because it all comes down to design.
Kotex has introduced a revolutionary pad with ProActive Guards which are located at the sides and back of the pad. When they come into contact with fluid, the Guards will intelligently rise to cradle your body for a close fit and form protective barriers to provide the ultimate leakage protection. The pad also comes with Rapid Absorb Funnels which are specially designed to absorb fluid during heavy or sudden flow, locking the liquid away securely and preventing leakage.
According to Chia Oi Peng, Managing Director of Kimberly-Clark Malaysia & Singapore, “Based on extensive research and consumer trials with the new KOTEX ProActive Guards, we have found that overall, 78% of women preferred Kotex versus competitor brands while 7 out of 10 women found Kotext to be more comfortable. Two times more women also preferred Kotex ProActive Guards on protection against back leakage.”
