The Secret

PECTIV’s advanced technology is the secret behind improved feminine menstrual hygiene. But what makes it so effective? This is where we introduce PECTIVOLOGY.
Our sanitary pads are made with nanotechnology, which combines maximum absorption and comfort with a variety of added health benefits. Take a deeper dive into what makes PECTIV so advanced:


an antibacterial agent used to eliminate any microbes which can cause infection. Nanosilver is harmless to the human body and used in many everyday hygiene products such as toothpaste, shampoo and cosmetics.

Far infrared rays

stimulate increased blood flow, cell regeneration and oxygen circulation.

Negative ions

not only eliminate odours by removing pollutants, but also have antibacterial capabilities to maintain optimum health in you intimate area.

Bio-magnetic elements

neutralise and maintain the pH of your intimate area which is essential to reduce the risk of infection-causing microbes.

We understand that it is important for you to feel comfortable and secure with the products you use when you have your period. All Pectiv products are made from approved materials which have been thoroughly tested both internally and by external certified test institutes, to ensure that they can be used safely and satisfy all legal and regulatory requirements.

To help you understand the materials included in our pads and panty liners we have created this overview containing the different materials and their constituents:

Layer 1:

Made of soft cotton which is gentle on even the most sensitive skin.

Layer 2:

This is our green chip core containing the nanosilver, bio-magnet, far infrared rays and negative ion elements for additional health benefits.

Layer 3:

An air layer that is wrapped in soft but strong, porous paper which initially absorbs any liquid.

Layer 4:

A superabsorbent polymer absorbs liquids and turns it into a gel which prevents any leakage.

Layer 5:

A specially designed diversion layer that prevents leakage by locking in all the liquid collected inside the pad. This also helps to prevent any odour.

Layer 6:

Another air layer with paper for absorbing any liquid that makes it through the superabsorbent polymer.

Layer 7:

Made of polyethylene which is both breathable and leak-proof. It allows for circulation to reduce humidity, keeping you dry.

Layer 8:

An adhesive made of high quality food-grade gum to help keep the pad in place.
