Meet D, the world’s first reusable tampon applicator.
Award winner D is a tampon applicator that provides the same comfort and practicality as a single-use applicator, but a reusable, ethical version, offering you a totally organic menstrual care solution. Designed with sustainability in mind, D prevents millions of plastic applicators from going to waste every single year. Better still, it is carbon neutral.
Made from medical grade Mediprene© and Sanipolymers©, D uses self-sanitising technology for clean and easy use, making it not only safe and hygienic but a convenient alternative to single-use applicators. D is designed for life, cycle after cycle.
Able to fit all sizes of non-applicator tampons, from light to super plus, this set comes in a reusable tin and includes 6 organic tampons and a carrying pouch.
A period product driven by menstrual wellbeing, one that’s easy to use, and helps to save the environment - what’s not to love?

- Made of Mediprene® by UK medical engineers
- Reusable, designed for life

- Hygienic: antibacterial Sanipolymers® inside the Mediprene® act as natural sterilisers, helping the applicator to stay clean
How to use
To start with, take off the lid. Then pull out the plunger and place your unwrapped tampon inside the applicator. Make sure the tampon string is in the string lock hole, and freely hanging down towards the floor.
Insert the applicator into your vagina at a 45 degree angle and use the plunger to push the tampon into your vagina. Stop pushing just before the plunger clicks into the applicator - your tampon’s now in place. Gently withdraw the applicator from your vagina, leaving the tampon safely inside you.
And you're done! Simply rinse and wipe after each use and you're good to go.
Why we love DAME
Tackling the plastic crisis in menstrual care head-on is DAME. By re-telling the story of period products for the 21st century, DAME has managed to get their products seen in Vogue and even on the sides of London buses. DAME is all about promoting non-toxic, ethical and sustainable menstrual care and we can’t get enough of it.
It took me a while to come round to the idea of a reusable applicator, but I finally decided to give it a go. It's actually way easier than I thought. The cute case and tin in this set is also really nice.
