Suominen, a Finland-based frontrunner in nonwoven innovations and sustainability, has introduced Biolace Pure for wipes. The product is made of biodegradable, compostable, and renewable plant-based fibres and wood pulp from certified forests. Biolace Pure is designed to meet growing wipes market’s increasing demand for sustainable, plastic-free materials.
The product does not contain any chemical binders or plastics.
“Biolace Pure offers our customers a unique, sustainable option that does not compromise on the most important features needed for a perfect wet wipe. Its 3-layer solution guarantees optimal liquid management and the soft outer layers ensure that the wipe cleans effectively, yet softly,” Marika Mäkilä, manager, marketing and category management, Europe, said in a press release.
The development of this innovative material with excellent liquid management and cleaning properties is based on Suominen’s long history and know-how in producing pulp-based products. Compared eg to 100 per cent viscose product for wipes, Biolace Pure brings superior cleaning power with a lighter carbon footprint and a lower environmental impact.
“Global environmental concerns, such as climate change and marine plastic pollution, are creating new market expectations and demand for sustainable nonwoven products. These global challenges drive also us to continuously develop innovative solutions with smaller environmental impacts and our novel Biolace Pure is a great example of our efforts,” Mäkilä said.
Biolace Pure will be commercially available in 2021.
