  • Nobel Hygiene has introduced Friends UltraThinz, India's first 'slim' disposable absorbent underpant.
  • Friends, their flagship brand, has developed this product to cater to the needs of younger individuals experiencing mild incontinence.
  • The targeted group includes those affected by conditions such as obesity, prostate problems, and postpartum incontinence.
Friends, the flagship brand of Indian diapering giant Nobel Hygiene Pvt Ltd, has launched the country's first 'slim' disposable absorbent underpant - Friends UltraThinz. This new product is designed specifically for younger consumers who suffer from light incontinence due to conditions such as obesity, prostate issues, and postpartum incontinence. It is also effective for heavy blood flow post-pregnancy, menopause, and endometriosis.

Friends UltraThinz comes in two separate variants - a peach-coloured dry pant for women and a grey-coloured dry pant for men.

The R&D team at Friends observed that the age of incidence of incontinence is decreasing, with younger customers facing milder forms of incontinence. These customers shy away from using 'bulky' diapers that may show up under their clothing. Therefore, Friends developed a sleeker, more-functional product that is absorbent, disposable, and provides an invisible, 'bulge-free' fit under even the tightest clothing.

This along with the packaging in black and fluorescents helps rebrand the dry pant itself, and make it more relatable for 30+ users. Apart from the sleeker design, UltraThinz retains the absorption mechanism, comfortable cottony fit, and anti-bacterial and odour-lock properties that its parent brand is known for. It is available in three different sizes - medium, large, and x-large.

"We have been making diapers for 20+ years. In the last decade we have observed that the age of incidence of issues such as diabetes and prostate cancer is coming down. Diapers can no longer be bulky products used by 70+ immobile seniors. A fresher, younger product is needed. As the market leader in the adult diaper category in India, it is our duty to lead the way. Which is why, UltraThinz: an absorbent, disposable replacement to the conventional underwear,” Kamal Kumar Johari, MD and founder, Nobel Hygiene, said.
