Black-owned Canadian company launches NIIMA fem-care line with 100% organic cotton pads [From the web]
NEW YORK, June 7, 2021-
While feminine hygiene sections of stores are filled with familiar names like Always, Kotex and Stayfree, there has been a significant increase over the years in newer brands offering plant-based and organic products. Not only is it good for the planet, but it’s also needed for women looking to be protected during that time of the month while also being protected from unnecessary chemicals. Some of the newest offerings have come from Black women, including Beatrice Dixon‘s The Honey Pot Company, and now, Canadian-based Toun Omezi with NIIMA (pronounced “nee-ma”).
Omezi’s recently launched organic period care line was inspired by her own needs following the removal of an endometrial polyp. She desired cleaner feminine care products, and some of the options she’d used in the past, she realized, were far from that.
