Our Reusable Sanitary Pad Products
We have five sizes available to suit each girl’s individual flow and time of the month.
The pads have a full absorbent and waterproof layer.
All that differs is the length and the thickness of the core material.

We also sell Flo Kits which contain everything a girl needs to start her journey through menstruation.
The kit contains 4, 6, 9 or 12 pads plus a bucket and cleaning materials to wash the pads.
In our experience of rural African life there is usually not a spare “anything” available, much less a bucket, which is a valuable item is communities where girls are required to fetch water for the household from a communal tap.
A dedicated bucket would be the ideal solution to keeping pads clean and hygienic.
Each pack of pads contains instructions on how to wear the pads and how to wash them.
The pad is completely waterproof and folds into its own bag so there is no need for extra wet bags or plastic packets which pollute the environment.
Instructional videos are also available and are the files are small enough to send over WhatsApp and upload onto a website or social media platform.
All educational material is currently in English but can be translated into a language of your choice for a minimum order of 5,000 packs.
To wash her pads using the Palesa Pads Flo Kit, a girl will only use between 15 and 20 litres of water per month.
This is only a fraction of water used to wash clothing, so it won’t add too much to the burden of fetching water in rural communities. It is really manageable, even for a young girl.
