Responding to the need to purchase only small quantities when necessary

According to an announcement by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare*, approximately 20% of respondents answered that their menstruation was "irregular.

If you have "irregular periods," it is difficult for you to predict when you will have your period, and you may be in trouble if your period suddenly starts when you are out and about and you do not have any sanitary products with you. In this case, it is also expected that there is a latent need to purchase menstrual products when and where they are needed, and only in necessary quantities (i.e., small quantities used on the spot).

Convenience stores, pharmacies/drugstores, and supermarkets are the most common places to purchase sanitary napkins, but in all cases, they are generally sold in large bags containing multiple sheets for stocking up at home.

Some shopping malls, department stores, and amusement facilities have vending machines in the restrooms where small quantities of sanitary products can be purchased, but it is considered a burden to travel to such facilities to purchase only a small amount.

This time, Daido Dolinko has decided to install Natura Moon sanitary napkins in its "Women's Health Care Support Vending Machine". The company plans to expand the use of these vending machines to train stations and commercial facilities. We hope that this will enable consumers to purchase sanitary napkins in vending machines, a familiar place, and meet their latent needs to purchase only what they need, when they need it, and where they are familiar with it.

What are "natural" sanitary products?

The top sheet, which touches delicate skin, is made of 100% natural cotton non-woven fabric, and the absorbent is also made of cotton pulp, a natural material.

Both cotton and cotton pulp have excellent moisture absorbency and breathability, so even if they absorb sweat and menstrual blood, they do not cause rashes and are comfortable to use.
