Just like I imagined! 5 stars!

I really liked it alot. It was very comfortable. It was the same as I had imagined. It is broad, long, wide, soft and long-lasting too. It gave me no problems. I will give 5 stars to this pad.

- Mother of a six year old boy & teacher

Didn’t ‘feel’ the period!

This one was quite smooth and soft. The feeling was good, comfortable. I thought the blue line was there because it could soak more. It was a nice feeling. Not ‘on periods’ feeling. I think it absorbed more.

- TCS Employee

Lasts really long!

No leakage, the upper layer is very soft and smooth and works for a longer period of time. I change my current pad 6-7 times while RIO I change only 4-5 times. The blue part I liked I feel its absorbing more, no leakage at all.

- Qualified CA & homemaker

No need to go to the bathroom!

Yeh bilkul bhi uncomfortable nahi hai, ekdum light weight hai aur theek se mere clots absorb karta hai. Mujhe malum hi nahi pada ki clots waha hai. Wo joh chip chipa tha wo poora absorb kar liya. Real mein mujhe bathroom mein jane ki vapas jaroorat nahi padi.

Questions & Answers


How much can a RIO pad absorb?

RIO Pads have rapid absorption technology which makes it 3 times more effective than an ordinary sanitary napkin. A single RIO Pad can accommodate 375 ml of liquid.


How are guards better than wings?

Wings create depression which can allow the liquid to pass through the gaps. Guards are made of hydrophobic sheets which act like a lining along the length of the pad and counter the gaps created by wings.


What is SAP present in RIO pads?

In RIO Pads, Super Absorbent Polymer or SAP is used in the form of fine granules. It is solely responsible for the retention capacity of a pad. When the SAP comes in contact with water it transforms it into a gel like form, thus effectively locking the liquid in.


What is the pack size?

RIO Pads are available in packs of 6 and 12 pads.
