There has been an informal proposal to eliminate taxes on feminine care products in order to manage the growing issue of menstrual poverty in the Dominican Republic. The argument set forth by the congressman Omar Fernandez is that these items are essential for girls and women and should be classified as essential products with low/no rates of tax added, so as to make them more affordable to women in all income groups.
In terms of sanitary protection and design, the wingless format of napkins (towels) is less popular among Dominicans in 2022. Indeed, most consumers have migrated over to formats featuring wings, for heavy absorption or even for lighter products, such as pantyliners.
Over the forecast period, additional innovation is expected in this space, with new formats, design and presentations arriving. In particular, consumers are demanding lighter fitting towels that offer discretion, comfort, and protection.
