Thank you very much for your comments. As for smells, I am not sure what you mean - if sanitary wear is changed often, and if girls and women practice good feminine hygiene then there will be no smells to be concerned about. The solution is to provide girls with enough sanitary wear to enable them to change 4 to 5 times a day. That is why we are packaging the pads in packs of 20s. Deodorizers and scents causes more infection and harm than good, and should be avoided.
