HYGIENIC SANITARY PADS AND TAMPONS MADE FROM MAXIMUM ABSORPTION NATURAL COTTON

Innotex Center/CTF, in collaboration with the Cotton High Tech (Cohitech) company, has carried out a project to obtain the first hygienic sanitary pads and tampons made from 100% natural cotton. The use of 100% natural cotton reduces the risk of irritation, itching and allergies in people with sensitive skin. The new sanitary pads and tampons have the same absorption capacity as standard products. This has been achieved by modifying the rheological properties of the fiber, that is, their arrangement within the product, as this is the factor that affects breathability and the capacity to absorb liquids.
