Seventh Generation has listed ingredients on its home care product labels since it began making them in 1990. Seventh Generation does this because they believe that consumers have a right to know what ingredients are used in the products they buy, and because Seventh Generation are proud of the care they take in their ingredient choices.
Seventh Generation pads are made of a combination of absorbent materials, polyolefins, adhesives, and a silicone-coated paper. The top layer is a non-woven polyolefin cover sheet. The absorbent materials consist of chlorine free wood pulp, and Lysorb, an absorbent gel. Lysorb, also known as SNAP (super absorbent natural polymer), is a polysaccharide derived from wheat. Polysaccharides are complex sugars found in many natural substances, like the fibers of cotton, wood, and wheat.* The removable peel strip is whitened with a chlorine-containing substance.
