What are your tampons made from?

Our tampons are made of 100% organic cotton. They're certified with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Our tampons are glue-free, the string is cleverly woven and attached without any adhesives. This means they're free of toxins, bleach and other chemicals. Better for your body. 

What are naked tampons?

Naked tampons are 100% organic cotton without the applicator. The packaging on our naked tampons is made from wood pulp and is biodegradable.

How are your pads sustainable?

Our pads are made from 100% certified organic cotton, they are biodegradable including the backing film and packaging. Not only that, our leak-proof pads are made with patented design so you can continue to live your daily life stress-free. 

Why is Organic Cotton a better choice?

Organic cotton is naturally soft, pH-neutral, breathable and absorbent. Unlike most commercially grown cotton, our 100% organic cotton is grown without the use of fertilisers, herbicides & pesticides. We are talking about one of the most delicate organs in the body, your vagina, which is highly absorptive. By choosing our chemical-free and toxin-free products, you are taking care of yours.

On top of that we've been independently reviewed by the Soil Association and our pads and naked tampons are certified GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) which is an organisation developed by leading standard setters to define world-wide recognised requirements for organic textiles.

What is the GOTS Certification?

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading governing body for organic textiles like cotton. GOTS certification ensures our cotton is pure, ethically sourced and made without chemical pesticides, forced labour, child labour, or unfair wages.

Where are your products made?

All of our products are manufactured within the EU and have all of the necessary healthy and safety certificates. We only partner with ethical manufacturers who adhere to strict codes of conduct. This means throughout the entire supply chain, we know they're paying their workers fairly and provide safe working conditions.

How should I dispose of the product in an eco-friendly way?

As our tampons and pads are compostable, we recommend putting them in the compost bin after use. Why not put a small compost bin in your bathroom? If you don't compost, it is fine to put them in a normal waste bin as they will still break down over time. 

The packaging on our pads and naked tampons are also 100% compostable. So chuck those in the compost bin too.

As for our applicator tampons, the cardboard tube is 100% recyclable. Just give it a rinse and pop it in with the recycling.

Can I flush my tampon down the toilet?

No tampon should be flushed down the toilet, although apparently half of women do this regularly. Our 100% cotton tampons are compostable, but they do require time to break down and don’t disperse instantly as is the case with toilet paper. 

Only toilet paper should be disposed of down the toilet. Of course, if our organic cotton tampons were to be accidentally disposed of and end up at sea, then they will break down and disperse. They won't harm marine or birdlife, unlike conventional tampons with plastic veils. But better safe than sorry - don't flush 'em.

Do your tampons and pads expire?

We recommend using your Riley products within 18 months. While the bathroom may be the handiest place to keep them, it's also the most likely breeding ground for bacteria. So keep them in a cool dry place.

What is Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)?

TSS is a rare but serious disease that can be fatal. It is caused by toxins produced by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. Symptoms of TSS often mimic flu & can include a sudden high fever (usually over 39°C), vomiting, diarrhoea, muscle aches, a sun burn like rash, sore throat, dizziness and/or fainting.

It may be that not all symptoms are present, only a few. If you believe that you have one of more of the symptoms of TSS, remove your tampon immediately & contact your doctor, informing them that you have been using tampons.

TSS can occur during your period or some days after & although TSS can have fatal consequences it can be easily treated at an early stage. It is therefore important to consult a doctor as soon as possible.

You can reduce the risk of TSS by using tampons with the lowest absorbency necessary, by changing your tampon regularly & by alternating with pads, liners or a menstrual cup instead of tampons.

How many products fit in a dispenser?

How do I install the dispenser?

We have a range of different style dispensers available. We do not offer an installation service however you can find out more information below:

Perspex Free-vend Dispenser: These dispensers have a flat base so can be freestanding or wall-mounted. They are uniquely designed with adhesive strips on the back so can be securely affixed to the wall. We recommend applying to a clean, dry wall and securing with pressure for 2 minutes during installation.

Steel dispensers: Our steel dispensers are designed to be wall-mounted only. These come with relevant hanging guidelines.
