Why Natracare does not use more adhesive for its products:
The type of adhesive used for Natracare products is the same type of adhesive delivered to most companies. Unfortunately, these corporations patented the length, width and number of adhesive tapes, so we had to struggle in order not to infringe these patents. Also, the adhesive is the least environmentally friendly part, so we use only the necessary amount to maintain an optimal ratio between the stability of the product and its biodegradability.
Due to the fact that we use natural cellulose instead of plastic, there is a very fine margin of error for the temperature at which the adhesive adheres to the material. Too hot and the product becomes very sticky, too cold and it will not stick. If you find yourself in this situation, heating the absorbent between your palms will heat the adhesive enough to adhere effectively to the textile material. For optimal results, cotton underwear is preferable to synthetic.
