  • INDA has announced three finalists for the World of Wipes Innovation Award: Kimberly-Clark Professional's multi-purpose cleaning wipes, OrganoClick's OC-Biobinder Lily1450 for nonwoven materials, and Rockline Industries' Skin Care Wipe with unique skin benefits.
  • The winner will be revealed on June 20 at the WOW International Conference in Minnesota.
INDA, the association of the nonwoven fabrics industry, has announced the three finalists for the World of Wipes Innovation Award. The award will be presented at the annual World of Wipes (WOW) International Conference, from June 17-20, at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis in Minneapolis, Minnesota.    

The three products vying for this award are multi-purpose cleaning wipes from Kimberly-Clark Professional, a bio-binder technology from OrganoClick, and facial care wipes from Rockline Industries. The winner will be announced on June 20.

Scott Xtreme Multi-Purpose Cleaning Wipes by Kimberly-Clark Professional are great for tackling extreme cleaning tasks, like removing oil, grease, grime, paint, adhesives, caulk, and more, yet are gentle enough to clean hands. Featuring a patented citrus cleaning solution, the dual-action cleaning fabric incorporates a textured side to increase scrubbing action for cleaning tough soils and a smooth side for wiping surfaces clean. Scott Xtreme Multi-Purpose Cleaning Wipes are truly a must-have for any DIY job and cleaning on-the-go, INDA said in a press release.

OC-Biobinder Lily1450 by OrganoClick represents a series of bio-based and biodegradable binders intended for the nonwoven and paper industry. They are produced from renewable raw materials and residual streams from the food industry and replace traditional fossil-based plastic binders. OC-Biobinder is available with many different properties adapted to the production of home compostable nonwoven materials such as premium napkins, table cloths and wet wipes.

Rockline has innovated a new Skin Care Wipe containing a unique multifunctional complex of two medium chain glycine, a phospholipid and a blend of special glycol ingredients that provides for a multitude of skin care benefits as well as providing a unique preservation system for nonwovens. The Skin Care Wipe provides substantiated improved skin smoothness, elasticity, and hydration alongside an anti-ageing claim. This innovation is amongst the first to use these unique glycine ingredients in a Skin Care Wipe formulation.

INDA’s technical advisory board selected the finalists based on the creativity, uniqueness, and technical sophistication employed in finding novel ways to expand the utilisation of nonwovens. Categories considered for the award were wipes-related raw materials, roll goods, converting, packaging, active ingredients, binders, additives, and end-use products, the release added.

The 2023 World of Wipes Innovation Award winner was Indorama Ventures and Polymateria for their Nonwoven Wipe Using Biotransformation technology. This innovative spunlace wipe utilised advanced biotransformation technology developed jointly by Indorama Ventures and Polymateria. Meeting the BSI PAS 9017 specification, this wipe in the event it becomes fugitive, and exposed to heat, sunlight, air and moisture will transform into a harmless, bioavailable wax at its end-of-life, eliminating microplastic pollution. Compatible with mechanical recycling and combating ‘fugitive’ waste, this wipe represents a significant leap towards eco-friendly, sustainable nonwoven hygiene products.
