getting your period is stressful.

Asking about it doesn’t have to be.

pinkie® has answers.

Why should I use pinkie pads?

Pinkie offers custom-sized ORGANIC peroid pads for tweens and teens. Our pads are the ONLY pads that come enclosed in one-of-a-kind baggies for easy use and convenient disposal.

We meticulously designed our pads based on youth-sized underwear.

Our leak-free pads are the only small-sized period pads made from 100% organic cotton top-sheets in the U.S.!

How do I use a pad?

One of our interns (age 15) created a video to show you how to use a pad! Watch it here!

What are pinkie pads made of?

Pinkie pads are made of 100% organic cotton topsheets — this is the real stuff for a hypoallergenic, irritation-free experience. The next layer in our pads is a biodegradable super absorbent, plant-based Japanese polymer core that works as the absorbent material. Than we have a PE waterproof backsheet to prevent leaks. We also use non-toxic adhesive on our pads and wings to keep the pads securely in place. All of our pads are bleach-free, dye-free, toxin-free, chlorine-free and come with zero drama!

How should I dispose of pinkie pads?

We literally invented the best way to dispose of your used pad!
Pinkie’s one-of-a-kind baggies!

After you peel off the used pads from your underwear – simply insert it back into our slip-out baggie. You can use the baggie from the new replacement pad or save the last pad’s baggie in your pocket, bag or bathroom. Our baggies are recyclable and our pads. Please don’t put the pads in the compost bin – compost is for natural healthy soil and human bodily fluids should not be mixed into your compost.

Where are pinkie pads made?

Our pads are produced in Guangdong City, China with 100% organic cotton. Most of our cotton is grown in Georgia, USA and Texas, USA. The pads are hypoallergenic, dye and toxin free, fragrance-free and FDA-registered and GOTS certified among other certifications.

How absorbent are pinkie pads?

Our Mini pads are light absorbency BUT can still hold up to 30ml of liquid (2 tampons worth). Our Small pads are medium absorbency and can hold up to 40ml of liquid (3 tampons worth) and our Regular pads are heavy absorbency and can hold up to 80ml of liquid for a leak-free experience.
