Susie-Hewson croppedSusie Hewson is the founder, owner and developer of the global brand leader of organic and natural feminine hygiene, Natracare.

A lifetime environmentalist, Susie changed the feminine hygiene category forever thanks to her impassioned protest against the effects of dioxins in the manufacture of paper pulp products such as tampons and sanitary pads.

The immense environmental task that Susie undertook in the 80’s, resulted in a full product range including the world’s first certified organic cotton tampons and totally chlorine-free sanitary pads and panty liners, which are genuinely created from sound environmental principles.

In 2008 she received the Women in Ethical Business Award and was elected Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) joining a highly respected society whose past and present members include Charles Dickens, Adam Smith, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, William Hogarth, John Diefenbaker and Stephen Hawking.

Susie readily supports many environmental and humanitarian causes including Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, The Women’s Environmental Network, Circle of Health International and The Algalita Marine Research Institute. She has given essential support to many humanitarian causes, including Israeli and Palestinian midwives who are working together amidst the violence in the Middle East and Rural Women’s Network in Nepal who are providing emergency relief items for victims of the earthquake, particularly in the poorer villages.
