Our story goes back to the year 2014 when a Dutch entrepreneur visited the Philippines for a business convention and noticed to his surprise that menstrual napkins were still most commonly used by 99% of the women.
After a meticulous market research, the conclusion was that in the Philippines there is need for a high-quality tampon product. For that reason, the company Ladouce Philippine Branch was established in the year 2015 and the name Ladouce tampons was granted its legal deposited brand name. From that moment Ladouce digital tampons were specially developed for the Philippine market, produced in the European Community and exported to the Philippines. Ladouce tampons were registered and approved by the Philippine FDA in the year 2016. Sales, marketing and distribution are done from the company Ladouce Philippine Branch which situated her office and warehouse in the clean environment of the Province of Pampanga.
Our Reason of Existence
Compared to the product female menstrual napkins, tampons have huge advantages for its users, both in hygiene, usage and price. Another remarkable difference between napkins and tampons is the volume of waste. Imagine if only 35% of the Philippine users of napkins would change to digital tampons (non- applicator type), every year again 30.000 tons of non-biodegradable waste, the equivalent of 1500 full loaded trailered trucks, will not be dumped as waste. For reason that Ladouce tampons are 100% bio-degradable and napkins are not.
It is a challenge to make Ladouce tampons accessible for all women, through marketing, by on-line shopping and availability in traditional sales places like pharmacies, supermarkets and resorts/ hotels. We see it as our duty to supply the population with information, awareness and knowledge both about the product and the price/quality ratio, for tampons are no more expensive compared to a good quality napkin.
