It can be used comfortably and securely under any type of clothing. It can be worn for up to 4 hours, depending on your flow.

The same construction as the Panty Liner except in between the two layers is a super absorbent organic cotton fleece layer.

One Night Pad

Longer and wider than the other pads, the night pad has a double absorbent organic cotton fleece layer.

It is perfect for heavy flows or during the night. Same construction as the Day Pad except with a double layer of absorbent fleece.

How to Use

Reusable Sanitary Day Pad

Discreet and absorbent, the day pad, like a regular disposable pad, is used for medium flow. It fits discreetly and securely in underwear with the use of strong but unobtrusive poppers. Using the pad could not be simpler:

-Simply unsnap the poppers, place the pad in your pants velvet cotton side up, wrap the wings to the underside of your pants  and snap the poppers to secure in place.
-When changing your pad simply unsnap the poppers and fold the pad within itself and use the poppers to secure.

-We recommend use of ApiAfrique's carefully designed 2 compartment, 100% waterproof 'wet bag'. Store your used pads in one compartment, and new pads in the other. Perfect while out and about.
-Change your pad every 3 to 4 hours depending on your flow, just as you would with a disposable pad. 


The positive impact you will have by switching to reusable cannot be underestimated. 

Here are some facts for you:

How Many: One individual uses 11,000 disposable period products in their lifetime.

In Just the UK: 4.6 MM period products flushed down the toilet every day.Packaging: Tampons, pads and pantyliners along with packaging generates more than 200,000 tonnes of waste per year.

Plastic: Including the packaging up to 90% of the tampon or pad is plastic
Decomposition: Takes 500 years to biodegrade.

Our Oceans: On UK beaches on average one product washed ashore every 6 metres. We can but imagine how much is left in the sea.

Damaging life-cycle: Cotton production (water, pesticides and insecticides); plastic; chemicals (50+) including dioxin, chlorine and rayon.

Side Effects: It is well documented the issues that many have. Pads and liners and tampons don’t breathe which can cause rashes, undesirable odours, and even toxic shock syndrome.

Chemicals: Harmful to environment as they leech out of landfill and get into groundwater and air.

Reusables from a social enterprise

These people are really pioneering change! I love the African prints and they are super easy to use and wash. Never going back to disposables, I am a convert! I just bought the RainbowLife laundry soap too and it works so well. Thank you RL.
