Army nurses repurposed the ultra-absorbent bandages as menstrual pads and a  product was born!  Kimberly Clark then created the Cellucotton Products Company and launched Kotex  (K)Otton-like (TEX)ture! The initial  Kotex ads ran in 1921 in the Ladies' Home Journal and the Good Housekeeping magazine.  Readers of the Ladie's Home Journal were encouraged to call upon a Kimberly-Clark staff nurse, Ellen J. Buckland (also a brand ambassador), for advice and comments on the product.
