Applicators are straight and stiff whereas the vagina is actually curved. Using a fingertip allows you to follow your own natural curves and lets you place the tampon where it feels most comfortable and protects you effectively. Once you try it a few times, you’ll see that using a fingertip is very intuitive.
At o.b., we've always believed that the best applicator is no applicator at all. But we also know a lot of women prefer using a tampon with an applicator. So, we've created our "second best" applicator. It's plant-based* (*up to 92% plant-based., and comes with a 100% Organic Cotton Tampon.)
