Suominen introduces BiolacePure for wipes

Suominen, a leader in nonwovens innovations and sustainability, has introduced Biolace Pure for wipes. The product is made from biodegradable, compostable, and renewable plant-based fibres and wood pulp from certified forests, the company reports. The product does not contain any chemical binders or plastics, Suominen adds. As the newest product in Suominen’s sustainable Biolace product family, Biolace Pure is designed to meet the growing wipes market’s increasing demand for sustainable, plastic-free materials.

“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,” says Marika Mäkilä, Manager, Marketing and Category Management, Europe.

Suominen says that the development of this innovative material with excellent liquid management and cleaning properties is based on long history and know-how in producing pulp-based products. Compared to, for example, 100% viscose product for wipes, Biolace Pure brings superior cleaning power with a lighter carbon footprint and a lower environmental impact, the company says.

“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,” concludes Marika Mäkilä.

Biolace Pure will be commercially available in 2021.
