Suominen Extends Its BIOLACE® Product Line With New Nonwovens For Hygiene Products

HELSINKI, Finland — November 6, 2018 — Suominen, a global nonwovens company, announces the launch of two new nonwoven products, BIOLACE® Move and BIOLACE Cozy. As members of the long-lived Biolace product line, both are spunlace products but made of renewable raw materials, such as polylactic acid (PLA) and cotton.

Both of these Biolace products are developed specifically to serve the absorbent hygiene product market, which is one of Suominen’s strategic focus areas.

Biolace Move for acquisition and distribution layers (ADL) offers exceptional dryness, thanks to its fast and steady fluid management properties. It is a superior material in stain masking and ghosting. For hygiene product converters, Biolace Move offers first-class convertability and it does not dust when converted. Changing a conventional ADL to Biolace Move is an easy way to make a hygiene product more eco-friendly.

Biolace Cozy is designed for topsheets. It is a superior material in softness compared to other topsheets, which guarantees unmatched user comfort. Biolace Cozy also excels in masking and ghosting stains. In fluid management, Biolace Cozy is the fastest eco-friendly topsheet available in the market and it also maintains its speed level, ensuring dryness. In addition, Biolace Cozy can be enhanced with Suominen’s unique and customizable high definition patterns, which offers brands differentiation that is unprecedented in the hygiene category.

“There is a high demand among people for environmentally friendlier, safer and more sustainable hygiene products. These Biolace nonwovens were created to help offering those to the consumers,” says Johanna Sirén, Assistant Product Manager for Hygiene at Suominen. “The best thing in Biolace nonwovens is that they do not compromise anything: Consumer gets a product that performs as well as any conventional product but is also more sustainable.”
