the Oi difference
We're all about protecting what's precious, our bodies, our planet and the people who make it all possible.
Oi’s disposable period products, pads, tampons and liners, are made to have minimal impact on the environment and will biodegrade over 5 years. Made with non-toxic organic cotton to be gentle in and on our sensitive bodies.
No plastic, no toxins, no leaks, just total confidence.
Our precious bodies
Your vagina and the skin around it are very sensitive and absorbent, and more likely to get irritated or inflamed. Our organic cotton is grown without toxic sprays or pesticides. No Chlorine is used to bleach the cotton.
Plastic and toxic chemicals can really do a number on your body. Give your body the natural, plastic-free periods it deserves.
Our precious oceans
The vast majority of pads, liners and tampons are made of or contain non-biodegradable single-use plastic. Yes, even those ones that say ‘organic cotton’ or ‘cotton’ still have components of plastic in them which prevents them from fully decomposing
— leaving a legacy of plastic in our environment.
Period care and our planet
It can take
years for synthetic period care to break down in the environment
You'll likely use
period care products in your lifetime
Assuming 5 day period, 5-6 products used daily, 13 periods per year, for 38 years*
Together we've stopped
kilos of plasic from ever happening.
Our precious planet
Oi’s certified organic period products contain no toxic chemicals, harmful preservatives, synthetic additives, or GMO. Because they’re made from plant-based, biodegradable materials, they help you reduce waste and environmental impact.
Great for the planet. Oh and yeah because who wants plastics and toxins inside of them?
Oi products are made in Europe, Israel and New Zealand with stringent safety regulations and fair labour laws and working conditions to meet International Labour Organization standards.
Certification to the GOTS standard requires a direct measure against 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, covering environmental, technical quality, human toxicity and social standards.
Our precious water
Organic cotton uses up to 90% less water than non-organic cotton. (Non-organic cotton is thirsty!)
Organically grown cotton also doesn’t use any pesticides – so there is no leaching of chemicals into the waterways which can have harmful impacts on the ecosystem around cotton fields.
Talk about a win-win-win!
Our precious environment
We spend a considerable effort to minimise the packaging of our products. It’s always a balance to ensure the product is protected through the supply chain so it reaches you, the consumer, in good condition. A great example is our menstrual cups: the carton is as small as we can make it, minimising the packaging. Plus, we use vegetable inks and recyclable cardboard throughout our packaging, and all is biodegradable!Shop Oi Cup
Our precious environment
Our Bladder Care range uses an innovative naturally derived Bio-SAP, a plant-based Super Absorbent Polymer. Bio-SAP is not only biodegradable but also has a smaller carbon footprint as it does not contain any petrochemicals. It provides protection for our consumers against leaks and at the same time protection for our precious environment.
Our precious bodies
You avoid toxins in your toiletries… why not your tampons? Oi products are free from Chlorine bleaching. This is an important difference, as the use of Chlorine in bleaching produces dioxins which are classed as endocrine disruptors that are really not good for our bodies.
Our bodies & the environment
Oi’s disposable period products use organic cotton for its top sheet and core and Oi’s adult (bladder) care products has an organic cotton top sheet to ensure that the parts that go in and next to your body is non-irritant, breathable, comfortable and biodegradable.Shop Organic
Zero waste? A no brainer.
The Oi menstrual cup is a zero-waste alternative to tampons and pads. It is reusable and can last for three to five years. No more monthly waste from using tampons or pads. It is made of medical grade TPE making it softer and more pliable.Shop Oi Cup
We can’t do this alone
We’ve built partnerships with likeminded organisations like GirlGuiding NZ and Dignity to bring periods out of the dark ages and support women to take control of their own health, wellbeing and confidence.Meet our friends
