    Sustainably harvested and biodegradable, Sea Sponges are an excellent eco-friendly option!

    Each package contains 2 Sea Sponges and 1 cotton storage bag. Since the sponges are are naturally occurring organisms, they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. 

    An important notice from Jade & Pearl:

    Due to FDA regulations we are no longer able to market our Sea Pearls specifically for menstruation or as a prolapse support. We also no longer wish to associate our sea sponges with the word “tampon”. By definition, our Sea Pearls are not tampons, they are just sponges.

    Due to these restrictions, we can no longer advise customers on the use of their sponges. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Rest assured, we are still selling the same high quality sea sponges that we have offered to the women of the world for the past 40 years.

best thing ever.

  • By: loulou Verified Buyer from Providence, RI US on July 13, 2012

OK these are way more comfortable than disposables, and easier to deal with than cloth pads. Best part? You can totally have sex while using it, and it's clean and tidy.

Works Great but buy the right size!!

  • By: Dee Verified Buyer from Sanford, NC US on November 7, 2012

I bought these sponges in regular size and teen size. My periods are on the light side and I wasn't sure which one would be best. My mouth almost dropped when I saw the size of the "regulars". OMGoodness they're like cupcakes!! Be aware, people, that even when soft and wet these things are MASSIVE! If you don't get the sponge ALL THE WAY UP to your cervix you will feel uncomfortable so I'm not sure what they were thinking or I guess people just come in all sizes. I have gone through normal childbirth so its not like I'm miniature but I had to use the teen size TRIMMED DOWN. They work like a charm when you get them right. My "regulars" I plan on cutting in half and reshaping . Everything being said its a great invention!

Sooooo convenient!

  • By: Tiffany Verified Buyer from Bloomfield , MI US on August 26, 2012

I am in love with these sponge tampons. Super easy to use, comfortable and absorbent. Pop one in with a glad rag panty liner. Several hours later I take it out, rinse and put it back in! All day just one item to use. No waste, nothing extra to carry around with me. Then, when I get home, I wash well with the Bac-out and let air dry. FAB!

Love the sea sponge!

  • By: spongelover Verified Buyer from Warrenton, OR US on September 6, 2012

Wow! I love the sea sponge and have found it works great for me with, even during heavy flow and with no accidents! I even was camping and swimming and was so pleased with the performance of the sea sponge! Surprise, surprise! My new favorite.

I'm glad these were my first tampon encounter!

  • By: Clen Verified Buyer from San Gabriel , US on August 6, 2012

The last time I tried to (unsuccessfully ) insert a conventional tampon was probably in early high school, so I can't really compare the two, other than I remember the cotton tampon being really dry (and I tried to insert it with lubricant . . .). I really like the sea sponge tampons, they're easy to use and clean! I love that it comes with thorough instructions, too. I don't know if this is a problem that anyone else has, but when I sit down to pee, I can feel the sea sponge pushing out; it feels extremely uncomfortable and I'm freaked out that urine is going to be absorbed into the sea sponge and give me a yeast infection or an UTI. I'd still use it for the most part, though.*** ***GladRags Note: If a Sea Sponge tampon ever seems uncomfortable, you can trim around the perimeter to make it smaller. In addition, if you experience discomfort while using the restroom, just remove the Sea Sponge first and reinsert it after!

Great product

  • By: ks1234 Verified Buyer from Brooklyn, NY US on January 18, 2013

These are really nice - much better than various cups, etc, that can leak or are a bit painful to put in and out all day. No more of that horrible mostly dry-tampon-pulling-out feeling, no dangling string to pee on. I usually wear a liner/glad rag just in case on heavy days, but I rarely have problems. I've bought them before and just got my second set -- first lasted me easily a couple of years before they got too worn out. Highly recommended for an eco-friendly, body-friendly option!

  • By: KA Verified Buyer from Portland, OR US on October 8, 2012

I appreciate the natural option of sea sponges but they are not for everyone. I found them very uncomfortable and by the time I trimmed them down to a comfortable size, there was hardly any sponge left to absorb anything. I won't be using them any more. Might not be a quality issue, just an individual preference. Definitely not a universal solution.

cycles plus birth control

  • By: naturallymarried Verified Buyer from Kamuela, HI US on November 20, 2012

Sea sponges have been a part of my cycle for almost ten years, at the middle end when my flow is lighter than the need for the diva cup. For my personal lifestyle, they serve now as birth control as well.
