Absorbent Hygiene products finalists for Hygienix Innovation Award

Three new absorbent disposable hygiene products that provide users with greater protection, convenience and discretion are the finalists for the prestigious Hygienix Innovation Award that will be selected at Hygienix, the premier event for absorbent hygiene and personal care markets, to be held from November 14-17, at The Roosevelt New Orleans Hotel.

The innovative and technically sophisticated products vying for the top honours are a revolutionary pH monitoring pantyliner (Kimberly-Clark), a unique roll dispensing period product (Egal Pad) and a novel potty training pad (Sposie Kids), INDA said on its website.

Pads on a Roll is a wrapped super-thin absorbent period pad that dispenses like toilet paper in public bathroom stalls, preventing the personal embarrassment of not having a menstrual product when needed. This product promotes period product accessibility and destigmatises menstrual health. It is targeted to schools and universities and the away-from-home market.

The new Kotex Pantyliner with pH indicator, shifts colour at the moment it needs to be replaced. This technology works by changing the color from yellow to blue when activated by fluids such as urine, sweat, or others. By indicating the moment to change the product, helps to maintain the intimate area clean, fresh, and consequently healthy.

Sposie Dribbles Potty Training Pads is an absorbent potty training pad that adheres to boy’s and girl’s underwear to protect against leaks and accidents during the transition from diapers to underwear, while still providing physical cues to the wearer to promote potty training. The pads absorb over half of an average 2-year-old’s bladder capacity and are 100 per cent free from any fragrance, latex, and chlorine.

The annual award recognises and rewards innovation that uses nonwoven material or technology in a way that provides consumer benefit and expands its usage. Kudos Diaper Subscription Box by Kudos was last year’s winner. 

Each of the companies will present their products during the event on November 15 and INDA’s director of education and technical affairs Matt O’Sickey will announce the winner on November 17, to conclude Hygienix. 

In addition to the award presentation, the Hygienix conference will focus on sustainability with presentations by more than 20 industry experts on sustainable inputs, natural fibres, product transparency, reusable menstrual products, recyclable diapers and the latest market forecasts and insights into consumer buying trends.

Hygienix will also offer two specialised workshops, a myriad of business connection opportunities, a welcome reception, first-time attendee mentorship programme, and two evenings of tabletop receptions.
