It has been docu
mented that the modern version of the Sanitary napkin
was invented by an American man who loves his wife very much. He accidentally discovered that the clean cotton fiber and the absorbent pulp were wrapped with a soft cloth to make a long strip of cotton pad, which can effectively alleviate the pain and inco
nvenience of the wife during menstruation. This cotton pad became popular in Europe and the United States in the 1940s. Since then, Sanitary
napkins have begun to diversify.
At that time, the sanitary napkins used by women were mostly made of cotton and pulp, and the shape was 20 cm long and 5 cm wide. Because the woman moves the position while the woman is walking, an American woman tries to fix it on the underwear with glue. This method has been welcomed by many people and gradually evolved into a sanitary napkin with adhesive.
In the 1960s and 1970s, with the invention and application of new materials, soft inorganic cotton replaced the gauze outside the sanitary napkin. In addition to the pulp, inorganic cotton and medical moisture-proofing agents are added. In order to solve the problem of side leakage, the manufacturer added wings on both sides. This change makes women feel more comfortable and safe.
In the 1990s, polymer materials that increased absorption and dry mesh surfaces that were resistant to back-reversal were applied to sanitary napkins. The type of sanitary napkins also takes into account the needs of women, and there are different types of daily use, monthly use, exercise, and health care.
In addition to sanitary napkins, many women in Europe and the United States also love to use tampon. In 1929, Dr. I. C. Haas of the United States invented sanitary napkins, which were tampon. Dr. Haas is an ordinary doctor who spends most of his spare time on inventions. At that time, Dr. Haas’s wife felt that the use of sanitary napkins was too big and caused a lot of inconvenience to her. This made Dr. Haas feel the idea of doing something for his wife.
In surgery, doctors or nurses often use cotton or gauze to absorb bleeding. Dr. Haas applies this practice to the use of women's menstrual hygiene products. He invented the world's first internal sanitary napkin. The invention was patented in 1933 and was named "TAMPAX".
The development of sanitary napkins has undergone a process in which, firstly, during the menstrual period of women, it has the effect of covering and shading for indecentness; then, attention to health, hygiene, health and comfort has gradually become the main direction of the development of sanitary napkins.
