Safree is a sanitary napkin for visually impaired women, designed to make menstrual management more reassuring and convenient for visually impaired women by built-in menthol material reminding and simplifying change steps. Combining the original sanitary napkin and panty, the design is dismantled into two parts, the waist belt and the bottom piece, which is changed once a day and the bottom piece uses a moisture-sensitive water-soluble film with a built-in menthol material reminder to simplify the act of changing the sanitary napkin and thus increase the frequency of changing. Menthol is an important essential oil component of peppermint oil and has been used in various industrial applications and even in the food sector due to its low toxicity. Menthol and peppermint oil enriched with menthol have a variety of biological properties, in addition to biological properties including antibacterial and analgesic effects, its cooling properties are one of the main effects, with the cooling sensation it produces on the skin. It can be used as a reminder to change sanitary napkins.
