Did you know that … feminine hygiene products contain up to 90% plastic?
- Every woman uses up to
- period products in her lifetime.
- of all women buy single-use period products.
- tons of “menstrual waste” are produced in the UK alone every year.

Our solution for plastic free femcare products
With our capability to modify and functionalize our hygiene fibres we can meet the specific and fundamentally different requirements of each component in feminine hygiene products. Our fibres offer a plant-based and fully biodegradable alternative to existing synthetic solutions without compromising on performance.
Perfect performance layer by layer – an application example
Our hydrophobized fibre Olea for quick acquisition time and lowest rewet is super-soft and leaves a pleasant feeling on the skin.
ACQUISTION-DISTRIBUTION LAYER (ADL):
Fast fluid aquisition
Efficient liquid distribution
Our trilobal Galaxy improves wicking via capillary channels – for a fast fluid acquisition and an efficient liquid distribution
High liquid capacity
Our hollow fibre Bramante absorbs up to 260 % of its weight in liquids inside the fibre. That is super-absorbent and also excels in its retention capacity.
