Finland’s Suominen has launched Biolace Ultrasoft, a nonwoven for personal care and baby products made of plant-based, biodegradable, plastic-free, and compostable raw materials. Biolace Ultrasoft is the newest addition to Suominen’s sustainable product portfolio and a continuation for the growing Biolace product line that was launched over a decade ago.

Suominen’s strategy focuses on growth by creating innovative and more sustainable nonwovens. Biolace Ultrasoft was developed to match both the sustainability demands and the quality expectations of their customers and the consumers. Biolace Ultrasoft nonwovens structure and composition enables 25 per cent higher cleaning efficiency compared to same basis weight of 100 per cent viscose spunlace and a 38 per cent improvement when compared to polyester wipes, according to tests conducted by Suominen, the company said in a press release.

“Our strategy is put into action with the new innovative and sustainable products such as Biolace Ultrasoft. In 2020, the sales of sustainable products increased by more than 20 per cent compared to the base year of 2019,” Lynda Kelly, SVP, Americas and business development said in a statement.

“Biolace Ultrasoft is a sustainable product with great cleaning efficiency and exceptional softness. It is a perfect solution for baby and personal care products, such as cosmetic wipes and baby wipes. The softness makes it also suitable for gentle skin products,” Johanna Sirén, manager, category management said.
