About storage method

Tampons should be stored hygienically in a box, away from water leakage, high temperature and humidity, and direct sunlight. Do not store tampons with fragrances, chemicals, detergents, etc. Be sure to keep the instruction manual attached to the product with you. When carrying the product, please keep the applicator in the box as it may be deformed. If the applicator is placed in direct sunlight for an extended period of time, it may deteriorate and break, possibly causing injury during use. If placed in a humid place for a long time, the absorbent material may absorb moisture and swell, making it difficult to insert. Please use with care in storage.
