New Concept for Flushable and 100% Plant-based Incontinence products Combining Nonwoven and Textile Technology

Disposable incontinence products provide excellent liquid-management using SAP to securely lock urine to the disadvantage of poor sustainability while washable textile incontinence products provide excellent sustainability but inferior liquid-management due to the absence of SAP. A new concept combining textile and nonwoven materials allows to overcome these limitations providing a flushable solution only disposing 100% pant-based and flushable materials without compromising on performance providing a completely new consumer experience.
