Hygiene & Cleaning - Meeting Demand through Innovation

A combination of high performance characteristics and the ability to meet the requirements of both regulatory authorities and retailers ensures nonwovens continue to play a leading role in many areas of hygiene and cleaning.

Hygiene & Cleaning

The demand for increased sustainability throughout the life-cycle of hygiene products continues to grow, and the use of bio-based raw materials is just one of many possible solutions adopted by the industry.

Nonwovens are also helping meet the need for more discreet adult incontinence products, suitable for the differing needs of an ageing population. Features such as coloured or decorated products, more garment-like material and a more tailored fit, together with specific functions such as bacterial barrier, absorbency, cushioning and durability, make nonwovens the material of choice in the field.
