FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions


How are they sustainable?

Our pads are 95% biodegradable! Most menstrual pads contain as much plastic as 4 plastic bags and have nasty chemicals in them (the same chemicals found in weed killer). Our products contain no plastic & healthy ingredients. Bamboo (our core material) also uses ¼ the amount of water and less land than cotton uses. Viv for your V was created to bring sustainable and clean products to the hands of those that bleed. It’s about time we have menstrual care that is good for your body & our planet.

What are your pads made out of?

Plants! Bamboo fiber & corn fiber.

Why bamboo and corn?

Corn fiber is incredibly soft and bamboo fiber is incredibly absorbent. Bamboo fiber is naturally anti-bacterial. We use pure corn & bamboo, making it naturally hypoallergenic. The corn fiber also makes our products softer and more comfortable than cotton. Did you know bamboo is also known as the “breathing fiber”? Perfect for period care.

What is your packaging made out of?

Recyclable paper box made with 30% less paper than regular boxes and printed with sustainable ink.

Where are your products made?

Our products are made in a high-quality factory in China that focuses on innovating for sustainability.

How often should I change my pad?

Recommended is every 5-7 hours.

Are your pads vegan?

Yes.

Are your pads tested on animals?

No. 

How long does it take for these pads to degrade/break down?

150 days after disposal.

Where is the Viv for your V headquarters?

Do you sell tampons?

Not yet. We know more sustainable alternatives to tampons with applicators are desired and we are working hard to develop the perfect alternative. It has taken us many months to develop the product line we currently have (liners and pads), and we want to ensure our products are truly sustainable before providing them to customers who trust our brand.

Can I afford this? 

YES! Our products are designed for ALL womxn who bleed. We understand the barriers that are often in place when trying to make healthier decisions. We’re not for it. Our goal is to provide an affordable and accessible substitute within the price point we’re already used to paying. 

What’s your goal? 

Our goal is to build an educational brand that empowers all womxn to live healthier and more sustainable lives. We are dedicated to offering safe and eco-friendly menstrual products delivered straight to your door. We aim to remove all stigmas and shame in talking about our V’s! Period should no longer be a dirty word.
