What Nannocare Means to Us
‘Tis the season... as we reflect on the past year here at Nannocare, our growth has been breathtaking. We have had the honor of selling over 100k packs of pads and positively changing the lives of those who experience their period and were waiting for something new. A day doesn’t go by where we receive an email, review or comment on social media and we aren’t humbled by the overwhelming support and genuine love for our pads. It is ingrained in our company culture to do with a purpose! We all started on this journey together to make an impact on the quality of life for both us and the planet.
There’s No Time Like the Present
With the year coming to an end, it is a time when everyone reflects on what they have accomplished, what they are working on and what to plan for. Don’t let another year or day go by without making yourself and your health a priority.
With the daily grind always on GO; it is easy to let taking care of yourself fall by the wayside. From stopping at a fast food restaurant for a quick bite, skipping a workout or picking up an item at the store that you would not normally use because you don’t have time to hit your favorite health store.
Take time to slow down and remember that planning and time management go hand in hand. If you can give yourself a few moments to plan your morning, week or even an evening shopping trip it will save you the trouble of backtracking and thinking of how you could have done it better!
NannoCARES about You!
Do you know why Nannocare was started? It was to help women globally have access to a holistic and all natural solution to discomfort that occurs monthly. We want each and every one of you to know that we share in your quest for something better- and we are working every day to bring it to you directly!
Not only do we take health seriously; we also know everything is about balance. Periods are no fun, but they are necessary and a part of our lives so with that said- we want to make sure you can make the most of every day, period. Menstrual health is a thing, and it is at the forefront of the industry now more than ever.
Nannocare also wants to make period talk the norm! Every young adolescent gets “the talk” but periods are often left out. It is important for both boys and girls to be comfortable with the change in their bodies and not feel awkward about what is happening. Moms, Dads, Sisters, Uncles, Aunts, Grandparents – we want you to know it is ok to tell young girls about how their bodies will change and how menstruation will affect them. We also want you to be knowledgeable about the products out there that are good for them.
Here are some helpful tips for the new and even experienced who want to delve deeper into menstrual health:
Pros and Cons of Using Organic pads
Many brands talk about how organic pads/tampons are great with no toxins and chlorine bleach, but they barely talk about how it actually feels to use the organic pads/tampons compared to the non-organic ones.
First of all, it is true that our vagina is good at absorbing anything we put in there, which is why some medications are delivered vaginally. So being concerned about what might be absorbed by the body by using tampons made with synthetic fibers is reasonable. However, when it comes to how it feels to use an organic product compared to using a non-organic tampon, there isn’t much difference. Neither is the chance of getting TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome).
Regarding the feeling of using pads made with organic cotton or synthetic fiber, the difference is way more noticeable.
What Does Maximizing Life Mean to You?

What does it mean to minimize discomfort and maximize life? Well, here at Nannocare – it means a vast array of things. Life encompasses happiness, love, family, friends, success, education and runs the whole gamut of what we all truly value. While it is different for everyone – the underlying component that always remains the same is the need and want to maximize it. We all have our own version of it and that changes daily, hourly and sometimes within seconds.
Memoirs of the Travelling Woman
We all know the feeling, a great trip coming up! We have been anticipating it for some time…be it a business trip with a huge client or a much needed vacation. You have your outfits packed, all of your essentials – creams, pastes, gels, liners, mascara, the whole bit. You are ready to take on the world and you are so anxious to get it going.
But then…it happens! Your period comes. Out of all the toiletries and perfumes and extra hair ties you packed, there is only ONE pantyliner in the bottom of your favorite travel bag. What do you do? Most of the time, when I travel and stop in the airport shops – feminine hygiene items are neither here nor there. Even the bathrooms are a space of despair. What do you do? You resort to asking someone, oh so politely, in the bathroom while standing at the sink. Ahhhhhh!

I would highly recommend the Nanno pads to any woman, especially those who suffer from menstrual issues. This type of pad is literally a life saver. I was highly allergic to other brands which caused much discomfort. I came across these at my local CVS and they were the best. I won't use any other brands. You will be very pleased they help to lessen menstrual cramps and they are more pure.
I have purchased this product once before and that prompted me to purchase more. I can say they help with coverage during your heavy days. I like the fact that they are thinner than most brands.
I love these pads sooo much. They actually do help with my period pain and so absorbent, don't smell at all... literally perfect!
I have been using Nannopads for the past few months. I've held off writing a review because I wanted to really see if there is a difference between more natural products & that of the big manufacturers. Welp! I can safely say...I don't miss the heat that the plastic on most pads make you feel all day. I don't miss the minute crinkling sound as I walk with a "traditional" pad. And, I don't miss my privates perspiring & irritation! So, I recommend highly recommend Nannopads!
My review may seem a little biased. I didn't purchase these for my cycle. I purchased these based off the fact I was having major surgery and I would need pads during recovery . What drew me in, was the fact it was suppose to help with discomfort and they weren't the typical pad. So far, I love these pads. I don't feel like I'm wearing a pad, especially how even the thins in other brands felt bulky. Since I'm still recuperating, these have helped me through the spotting and I've noticed there has been a reduction in discomfort.
For the first time in over 20 plus years I didn't have to take any medication during my menstrual cycle. While I did experience some discomfort, it was tolerable without pain medication. Now I'm a bit of a skeptic, so even after the amazing results, I had to wait for a second cycle to post my results. Comparing the two cycles I consider the first cycle a "light" (not the norm for me) which consist of me talking about 1800mg of motrin during each of the first two days. The next cycle was a doozy, ( the norm) which usually consist of me taking the 800mg of motrin every six hours and still having discomfort. I'm very excited to report I only had to take 400mg of motrin during the first 24hrs. These results are amazing, on my worst cycle the nanno pad significantly reduced my pain. I have given the nanno pads to my nieces, I'm hopeful they see the same results since they too suffer from cramps. LIFETIME CUSTOMER!
These are the best pads I’ve ever tried! They are super absorbent so I feel more confident wearing them. I really didn’t see much of a difference in my cramps but I’m ok with that. The only thing I would change is to make to panty liners a little longer or have an option for longer ones.
I had some of the most debilitating cramps a few days ago and my mom gave me these NannoPads. I put it on and literally within 20 mins my cramps were going away. I couldn't believe it. Now I am the person who pops in an Advil or ibuprofen to get rid of the pain because I am a workaholic and I NEVER want to miss work. BUT I hate painkillers so the fact that I found a product that is natural AND SO EASY to help relieve my cramps is very exciting for me.
To say I’m pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. Nannocare DOES work......it was both absorbent and subsided my cramps about 70-75% – which is huge!
I really didn't think it was possible for a pad to help with cramping so | didn't think it would do anything. I was very surprised that I had no cramping at all! I started using them a few days before I probably should have but my period was about 3 days later than expected. I really liked the bigger pads as it covered more area for night time.
I felt the pads not only kept me dry and did not cause and leakage but most importantly they helped with my cramps. | definitely felt as a result of using the pads my cramps were more manageable as | felt a lot less pain and was able to do normal activities without having to worry about the pain being so bad.
I have fallen in love with everything from Nannocare. I literally don’t want to leave the house without a panty liner because they truly keep you fresh feeling all day. As for the actual pads, I have been able to go from lying in bed with a hot water bottle and popping Motrin, to being able to go on like any other day due to the reduction in cramping and overall pain. I highly recommend this product even if you are a hard No against pads (which I totally get because that was me), at least give it a shot. I will take pain relief over anything.
I was really happy with these pads. I used to have very severe cramps right before my period and on the first day of my period but this product really worked for me. I still had cramps but they did not hurt as much as they usually hurt me. I was very happy with this product.
I have no idea what is in these pads, but they are wonderful! I normally have horrible backaches and migraines and it seemed when I was using these pads, I didn't experience any migraine pain and very little back pain, I am a full-time college student and my period usually keeps me out of school one day a month and this month, I was able to attend school every day, as I did not have any discomfort that was so extreme that 1 had to miss classes! Please tell me what this product is! Thanks again for letting me be n part of this great study and letting me he practically pain-free for at least one month of my period!
