What absorbency levels do LOLA tampons offer?
LOLA tampons follow the standard absorbency rules set by the FDA: Light tampons absorb up to 6 grams of liquid, regular 6-9g, super 9-12g, and super+ 12-15g.
What absorbency levels do LOLA pads offer?
Night pads are great for heavier flows and overnight protection. Day pads are perfect for medium flows.
What absorbency levels do LOLA liners offer?
LOLA liners come in one absorbency and size - ultra thin. They are perfect for light days, spotting, or daily wear.
What are the ingredients in LOLA tampons?
LOLA tampons are made out of 100% organic cotton.
What are the ingredients in LOLA pads and liners?
LOLA pads and liners are made of 100% organic cotton top sheet and core with a plant-based leak-proof backing. We use a non-toxic adhesive made of aromatic/aliphatic hydrocarbon resin, SIS rubber, and mineral oil.
What is the difference between a day pad and a night pad?
Nights pads are longer and a bit wider than day pads for additional protection while you sleep. Both are made using the same ingredients.
How can I adjust my assortment of products?
Easy! Visit My Account on our site to adjust any of your subscription information, from product type to assortment to delivery frequency.
Where are LOLA products made?
LOLA products are made in Europe and packed specifically for you in the USA. Our European partners have been manufacturing feminine products for decades, so they know their stuff.
Are LOLA products FDA approved?
Of course! In addition to our own FDA approval, our partners are also FDA approved and have highly structured systems of testing and quality assurance.
How do I use a compact applicator?
The LOLA tampon is contained inside a plastic applicator, which is made of two tubes, one inside the other. You need to extend the applicator to its full size prior to insertion. Pull the inner tube out until you feel it comes to a stop. From here on out, it works just like any other tampon with a plastic applicator.
We've always had success holding the fully extended applicator between our index and middle fingers using our thumb to push the tampon out. We found that this helped us get a better grip on the applicator. Be sure to push the inner tube into the outer tube until the ends meet. This will ensure that your tampon fully deploys from the applicator.
How do I use a non-applicator tampon?
First, find the uneven place on the blue tape and tear the wrapper off (this can be recycled!). When the tampon is unwrapped, pull down the strings at the base of the tampon. Then, place your forefinger at the base of the tampon and your thumb on the side facing you. Aiming towards your back, push the tampon inside you about as far as the length of your forefinger.
How do I use a pad?
First, unwrap the pad from the packaging. Then, remove the backing to expose the adhesive and place the pad in your underwear with the adhesive down. Finally, expose the adhesive from the front of the pad to unfold the wings and wrap them around the underside of your underwear.
How do I use a liner?
First, unwrap the liner from the packaging. Then, remove the backing to expose the adhesive and place the liner in your underwear with the adhesive down.
How often should I change my tampon?
The FDA recommends that you change your tampon every 4-8 hours. You should never leave a tampon in for more than 8 hours and always make sure to use the lightest level of absorbency possible.
How often should I change my pad?
We recommend changing your pad or liner every 4-6 hours, though really you can change it as often as you need to.
Do LOLA products contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs)?
No, LOLA products do not contain any GMOs.
Can I flush LOLA tampons?
While LOLA tampons are biodegradable, we do not recommend flushing them as tampons can cause blockages in your plumbing or septic systems.
