When it comes to feminine hygiene, some stores only carry what they feel are the basics: standard throwaway pads and tampons. Savvy shop-owners, however, know there’s much more to monthly protection. Allergies, discomfort and concern over their environmental impact can all affect what women face during their menstrual cycles. Help your female customers have a better time-of-the-month by giving them relief and peace of mind with a broader feminine hygiene section. From disposable eco-friendly basics to reusable innovations, your customers will love being given more natural options.

Are you meeting the needs of your male clientele? I’m not talking about your saw palmetto or your bodybuilding supplements. I’m talking about your hair and skin care products.
