Celebrating International Women’s Day at Albaad

At Albaad, we acknowledge the individual and celebrate the people on the ground who make our company what it is. Today, on International Women’s Day, we give an extra special nod of recognition to all the strong women in our team. 

Throughout the year, we shine the spotlight on employees and have featured many of the women who are pillars of Albaad. Judith Rottmann from Albaad Germany has been an important part of our Albaad family for the last 17 years. After all this time she says she loves the diversity of her job and creating new products. As HR Manager, Vera Kühlwein says “I love working with 34 different nations and taking on the responsibility of education, training, and development.” Sarit Dino, an account manager at Albaad, lives by her own advice by embodying professionalism and commitment to Albaad’s mission. We are proud to have her, and all our female employees at Albaad this International Women’s Day and all year round. 

Through the products that we manufacture, Albaad is also focusing on women and their needs. For example, pregnancy is a time of great expectation and joy for a woman, as she prepares to bring new life into the world. However, pregnancy can also create discomfort. In response to these changes and based on over 25 years experience as a global wet wipes manufacturer, we were able to create maternity wipes which can be customized to meet the maternity needs of women all around the globe. 

As moist toilet tissue manufacturers, we know that this too is a product that many women find indispensable in their homes. These wipes simultaneously meet consumer requirements and environmental needs. Our flushable wipes are based on a strong and elastic base-sheet, which provides ease of handling during usage. The wipes are biodegradable and pass through wastewater conveyance and treatment systems without causing blockage.

When it comes to keeping a home clean, Albaad as household cleaning wipes manufacturers offer wet wipes solutions that are fully customizable to meet the needs of our clients. From bathroom wipes to floor, furniture and stainless steel wipes, we cover it all.

Something many women are searching for is care for their skin. Albaad, as leading and global cosmetic wipes manufacturers, have developed a cosmetic wipes range to clean and nurture the skin with beneficial nutrients to help improve its appearance and maintain its beauty. Our cosmetic wipes may not be able to fully stop the changes that occur due to the passing of time, but they can ensure healthier looking and feeling skin at any age. Albaad’s range of products and wet wipes manufacturing solutions are designed for different age groups as well as for different applications, such as refreshment, moisturizing, cleansing and make up removal.

Albaad’s Intimate care wipes designed for women respect the unique needs of the skin and provide a wide range of solutions for freshness, care and protection. The function of the skin is to protect organs from external aggressions. The skin in intimate areas has special needs as it is more sensitive due to the unique composition of nerve cells. The pH level of the skin in intimate areas is different from other parts of the body. If this delicate balance is disturbed, harmful bacteria can multiply. At Albaad, we care about the comfort of women.

This International Women’s Day, we at Albaad wish all the lovely ladies around the globe a happy women’s day as we strive to continue to provide our clients with the highest quality products, while meeting their full wet wipes manufacturing needs. Our wet wipes are always fully-customizable according to our clients exact needs.

what is most important in a wet wipes manufacturer

What is Most Important in a Wet Wipes Manufacturer?

We consider what is most important in a wet wipes manufacturer and how we provide that for you.

When seeking a wet wipe manufacturer, buyers place importance on different aspects. It is crucial to understand what those factors are to make informed decisions. In a poll we conducted on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/company/albaad), we asked our followers what is most important to their organization when they are looking for a wet wipe manufacturer. We explored factors such as global reach, expertise in wet wipes, high quality materials, and customization capabilities. 

High Quality Materials 

In this poll, 58% of our followers prioritize high quality materials above all else. This makes sense – after all, the quality of the materials used determines the quality of your end product. We produce every part of the product in-house, including the raw materials. We also have our own dedicated R&D team with proficiencies in each of the specific arenas needed to produce world-class wipes.

When you take an inside look at how we manufacture our nonwoven fabrics in wet wipes, you get an idea of how much of an emphasis we place on this too. This sustainable fabric is biodegradable, plastic-free, fully flushable, and made entirely from natural fibers. From web formation to web bonding and drying, our machines are equipped with a process and quality control system that monitors all the relevant parameters of production. These wipes are exceptionally high quality as a result. Our moist toilet tissue is truly one-of-a-kind in terms of how eco-friendly and high-quality it is. 

Expertise in Wet Wipes

Another 33% of votes chose expertise in wet wipes as their main parameter. This is crucial to creating a seamless process in developing and manufacturing our customer’s product. As a trusted and experienced partner, with over 25 years of wet wipes development and manufacturing experience, we proactively seek to improve each product line. We do this while protecting and enhancing brand quality and visibility. Coupled with this extensive experience comes our commitment to innovation. We are continually upgrading and developing our products according to the latest research and technological advancements. This commitment has led to us becoming pioneering flushable wipes manufacturers. We also believe in the importance of manufacturing that commits to environmental sustainability, and this runs through our product lifecycle planning.

Customization Capabilities

Although a smaller percentage voted for “customization capabilities”, we view this factor as being a critical component of your experience. One example of this is in our refreshing wipes, which are meant to clean your skin and absorb sweat. There are a wide range of fragrances and ingredients available depending on your needs. We know that there are widely varying opinions about smells, so you can customize the fragrance of your wet wipes. Not only that, but you can decide their size, shape, weight, ingredients, and packaging. You control every single detail. This also matters for the type of wet wipe you want to produce. If you are manufacturing baby wipes, for example, you need to create a more gentle and sensitive product than if you are manufacturing household cleaning wipes

Global Reach

Global reach is crucial when you need to deliver your wet wipes quickly while considering international regulations. With 3 plants in Germany, Spain, and Poland, manufacturing over 500 million wet wipe packages annually, Albaad Europe is the continental-European market leader. Beyond that, we also have plants in the USA and in Israel. We have created the infrastructure necessary to provide on-time service to anywhere on the planet. 

Our international company culture enables us to provide consultation and product development to meet the needs of our global clients. We promise fast, flexible, and reliable service every time. 

Although people have different priorities when it comes to what is most important in a wet wipes manufacturer, they mainly want their wipes to be made by experts and with high quality materials. As your global wet wipes manufacturer, we provide our customers with exactly what they need.

Pet Wipes and Why You Should Use Them

Find out why you should use pet wipes and what kinds make the most sense for you.

If you have just adopted a pet, you might be wondering what the benefits of pet wipes are. After all, wouldn’t you just bathe them? Why would you need specific wipes for your pet’s needs? The truth is, there are many reasons to use pet wipes. Learn about the types of wet wipes we offer and why they matter. 

Clean Paw Wipes

You know better than anyone where your pet’s paws have been and why you need to keep them clean. After every walk, it is important to wipe your pet’s paws down, especially if you want your carpet to survive. Otherwise, you have no idea what they might be tracking into the house, and you will be lucky if it’s just mud. 

But wiping down their paws isn’t just for you – it’s for your pet, too. In the winter, they can get chemical burns from sidewalk salt. Prevent this by cleaning their paws and making sure that they are safe. 

As wet wipes manufacturers, we make sure that our clean paw wipes are suited for the gentle and effective cleaning of pet paws. Veterinary specialists and dermatologists confirm that the cleansing lotion used in our wipes dissolves dry dirt. Therefore, they are ideal for treating sensitive dog skin. Our wipes ensure pet owners do not need to compromise on quality, safety, or hygiene when it comes to paw cleaning. 

Clean Fur Wipes

Your pet’s fur gets dirty all the time! On top of that, different areas of pets need more constant care. One example is wrinkly face folds. These areas of the face often get dirty before your pet truly needs a bath (especially if your pet drools a lot). Quickly wiping all the mess away is the best way to keep your pet clean. 

If your pet stops to sniff at everything they pass during the spring, they might be bringing pollen into your home. Help keep your allergies at bay by wiping off all traces of this after a walk. Other reasons to use clean fur wipes include minimizing their smell and making sure they stay clean on hikes or long walks. You also need to clean your pet after bathroom excursions. 

Our clean fur pet wipes are infused with a blend of moisturizing vegetable oils that clean, nurture, and condition pet fur. We designed them to pamper and clean your pet with safe, effective ingredients. 

Substitute for the Bath

Our no-rinse pet shampoo wipes are an effective substitute for pet baths. Avoid messy situations at home and in veterinary clinics with our no-rinse pet shampoo wipes. They make cleaning more efficient, more effective, and a lot less messy too!

There are all kinds of reasons you might prefer wipes to a bath. Senior pets in particular often have limited mobility, which means that getting them into a tub can be difficult. The solution to keeping them fresh and clean without the stress of lifting them (which might be too much for you to do) is through the power of pet wipes. It’s also the best solution for newly adopted pets, especially rescue animals. Because they need time to get acquainted with their new home, bath time can be a stressful experience. 

Another reason to substitute the bath is for spot cleaning. If you bathed your pet every time you noticed a speck of dirt, your pet would never leave the bathtub! Sometimes you are just dealing with a small mess, and you don’t have the time to go through the process of bathing your pet. This is especially true if your pet hates the process and is fighting you the entire time.

We manufactured our non-rinse pet shampoo wipes as extra-large wipes and infused them with a mild cleansing solution that keeps pet fur clean and smelling fresh. Our pet wipes are of the highest quality and are safe to use at home or when out.

 

Treat your pets with our customizable pet wipes solutions. Our wet wipes are specially designed to provide a convenient and safe solution for anyone involved in the care of animals. From our clean paw and fur wipes to no-rinse shampoo wipes, pamper your pet with safe and effective ingredients.

Supply Chain Disruption

COVID-19 has led to a significant supply chain disruption, which means that sustaining business operations has been a challenge for companies everywhere. 

Coronavirus has had a widespread impact on the supply chain globally. 94% of Fortune 1000 companies saw disruptions, 75% of companies experienced negative or strongly negative impacts on their businesses, and 55% of companies plan to downgrade their growth outlooks (or have already done so), according to a study by Accenture. In the face of so much grim news, it is hard to see how businesses can recover. Selling at the usual pace has been impossible for most companies worldwide. 

The pandemic has seriously tested supply chain leaders globally in maintaining essential operations. They still need to deliver goods and services, despite the virus. This means that business leaders must make quick decisions to serve their customers and their own employees. 

Here at Albaad, we keep up with production even when the world is shut down. This is because we have the means to continue delivering large orders worldwide. 

Global Reach

The first reason for this is because we have manufacturing plants all over the world, including in the USA, Germany, Poland, Spain, and Israel. Each plant has hundreds of employees and has broad production capabilities. Because of our vast production capacity, we are able to deliver large orders around the world quickly. As one of the three largest wet wipes manufacturers in the world, Albaad has world-leading production facilities on three continents, each equipped with the latest technologies to provide cost savings and to ensure efficient and timely manufacturing to meet our clients’ needs. We are proud of our global reach, combined with our ability to provide local services and solutions, fast.

Supply Risk

The supply risk of overseas manufacturing sites is another factor in supply chain disruption. With the pandemic raging throughout the world, plants that relied on getting their supplies from factories around the world had to delay or stop their manufacturing processes completely. However, we produce every part of the product in-house – including the raw materials. This means that we do not need to wait for other factories to supply us with the materials we need; we can manufacture our products from start to finish ourselves. We also have our own dedicated R&D team with proficiencies in each of the specific arenas needed to produce world-class wipes. The latest example of our innovative manufacturing process is in our flushable wet wipes, Hydrofine. We manufacture these wipes with biodegradable, raw materials (without petro-sourcing fibers) that meet the highest flushability standards. 

 

This pandemic is not a short-term crisis; it has consequences that we will be dealing with for years to come. Because of this, it is crucial to build long-term resilience to face future challenges. We have created a holistic approach to manage the supply chain and have built in sufficient flexibility to protect against any other unforeseen circumstances that may come up in the future. Having a secure framework with responsive risk management is crucial to handling global production. 

We pride ourselves on helping communities and enabling businesses to continue operations as usual during these challenging times.

albaad's sustainability team in germany

ECOPROFIT® – Albaad’s Sustainability Team in Germany

We are proud to introduce Albaad’s sustainability team in Germany, giving us the tools to go green while reducing costs.

Companies are constantly faced with the challenge of acting sustainably while maintaining a high level of competitiveness in the market. The ECOPROFIT® project gives participating companies the tools they need to meet this challenge. Since the project was first implemented in Munich in 1998, there has been an increasing number of German municipalities taking it on for themselves. Here at Albaad, our sustainability team in Germany consists of Dr. Wolfgang Lemming, Marcus Wieling, Jörg Schumacher, and Christian Föllmann. Together, they have been actively working on corporate environmental protection. 

The word “Eco” in ECOPROFIT® stands not only for “Ecology” but also for “Economy”. This is because their motto is to protect the environment while reducing operating costs. Identifying areas in companies that have savings potential and optimizing them individually is all a part of this process. Even minor changes can bring noticeable and promising results in increasing a company’s resources. 

Our Sustainability Mission

Albaad has always had sustainability in mind. As a company whose main focus is wet wipes, we continuously seek new ways to protect health, the environment, and the people in our communities. Our in-house production of Hydrofine flushable wipes, made with natural fibers, allows us to ensure that our product is environmentally-friendly from the earliest stages of production. This sustainable fabric is biodegradable, plastic-free, fully flushable, and made entirely from natural fibers.  The most stringent institutes in the US and Europe rigorously tested and approved Hydrofine’s flushability properties. This attests to our directive to create, manufacture, and deliver sustainable and environmentally friendly products.

We also installed a solar farm above our Dimona, Israel facility as part of our ongoing mission to provide sustainable products. These solar panels reduce Albaad’s carbon footprint and provide cleaner, safer products for both our customers and our planet. A smaller change we made was to give our employees personalized reusable mugs. This focus on preserving our precious resources is crucial to building a better future for our planet. 

Funded by the NRW Environment Ministry Project, ECOPROFIT® supports small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in reducing the consumption of valuable resources, which in turn reduces operating costs. This creates more sustainable companies and ideally helps secure long-term jobs as well. 

As one of the first wet wipes manufacturers in the world to create a range of environmentally-friendly products, we are proud of the work Albaad’s sustainability team in Germany does to ensure continued progress in creating a better world for us all to live in. To learn more about the many ways Albaad works to create a sustainable world, read this message from our CEO.

what do you look for in wet wipes

What Do You Look for in Wet Wipes?

As leading wet wipes manufacturers, we take your needs into account. We explore what you look for in wet wipes, why that is, and how we provide that for you.

Amid a global pandemic, balancing the demands of life, work, and running a household is an almost impossible task. On top of that, our hands must always be germ-free, our living and working spaces need to be cleaner than ever, and our time and money are particularly precious. Because of this, it’s important to understand what you really need in wet wipes. 

In a poll we conducted on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/company/albaad), we asked our followers what they first look for in wet wipes. We explored these top 4 factors: 

Natural Materials

44% of voters chose “natural materials” as their #1 priority in the wet wipes they buy. Luckily, we prioritize natural materials too. For example, take an inside look at how we manufacture our nonwoven fabrics in wet wipes. This sustainable fabric is biodegradable, plastic-free, fully flushable, and made entirely from natural fibers. From web formation to web bonding and drying, our machines are equipped with a process and quality control system that monitors all the relevant parameters of production. These wipes are exceptionally high quality as a result. We are one of the first wet wipes companies in the world to create a range of environmentally-friendly products. Our moist toilet tissue is truly one-of-a-kind in terms of how eco-friendly and high-quality it is. We are proud of our continued progress in creating a better world for us all to live in.

Soft Feel

In this same poll, 33% of our voters chose “soft feel.” We manufacture a wide range of products that are meant specifically to be gentle and soft, leaving behind a cleansing, soothing glow. This is especially important for our baby wipes. Because baby skin is much more sensitive than adult skin, it tends to lose moisture faster and is more prone to irritation. The skin in the diaper area is even more sensitive because of microorganisms in body secretions, excessive exposure to moisture, and potential friction with diapers. 

In another poll we conducted on LinkedIn, we saw that 17% of our followers use baby wipes the most. Therefore, it is important to ensure that our baby wipes are up to standards in every way possible. 

Thickness

Another 15% of votes chose thickness as their main parameter when it comes to what to look for in wet wipes. These same voters would be big fans of our Cleanitize disinfecting wipes, which provide the ultimate cleaning experience and kill 99.9% of the virus that causes Covid-19. Their thick, quality fabric tackles even the toughest jobs with ease and is bleach-free with no chemical scent. In general, the thickness of wet wipes material depends on the job it is meant to do. These Cleanitize wipes are thicker because they take on the job of disinfecting, whereas other wipes meant to be more gentle might also be thinner. Household wipes manufacturing is sure to provide you with thicker fabrics for the same reason.

Pleasant Fragrance 

Although only 7% voted for “pleasant fragrance,” we still view smell as being a critical component of the wet wipes experience. One example of this is in our refreshing wipes, which are meant to clean your skin and absorb sweat. There are a wide range of fragrances and ingredients available depending on your needs. Because we know that there are widely varying opinions about what smells good, we provide the option to completely customize the fragrance of your wet wipes. Not only that, but you can decide their size, shape, weight, ingredients, and packaging. You control every single detail. 

Although people have different priorities when it comes to what they look for in wet wipes, they mainly want their wipes to be natural and soft. As global and European wet wipes manufacturers, we provide our customers with exactly what they need.

what are wet wipes used for

What are Wet Wipes Used For?

From germ removal to skincare, we discuss why wet wipes are a valuable and irreplaceable part of your daily life.

We are seeing organic growth in the wipes market due to the many time-saving and safety benefits they offer. Cleanliness is more important than ever; it’s no wonder that the options and capabilities of the wipes we buy have become more advanced.  So what are wet wipes used for? 

Removing Germs

Not all wipes are meant to remove germs. Take baby wipes, which are water-based because they need to be sensitive for a baby’s delicate skin. But if you are using wet wipes for cleaning purposes, you will want to ensure that they are actually killing germs. Wipes that do this properly include household cleaning wipes, which are designed to target bacteria on surfaces like counters, TV, phones, and more. The active chemical usually found in these wipes is benzalkonium chloride, which is approved to kill germs. Hand wipes also remove germs; they are more effective in removing bacterial sores from hands than hand sanitizer, according to a study by the Special Pathogens Laboratory. This is mainly because hand wipes require a mechanical wiping action, which physically removes more bacterial sores. 

Substituting Toilet Paper

Toilet paper is not pre-moistened or ready for heavy duty cleaning, and its material is often rough on the skin. However, wet wipes were not a good alternative to toilet paper because you couldn’t flush them…until recently.  Flushable wipes (also called moist toilet tissue) are wet wipes with a special cleansing solution that clean both gently and effectively after using the toilet. 

Taking Care of Your Skin

High quality cosmetic wet wipes protect your skin from unwanted changes over time. One such change is hyperpigmentation, a condition in which some patches of your skin are darker than the rest of your skin. Another change is a loss of elasticity because your skin produces less elastin and collagen. When this happens, you begin to develop more fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, your skin often becomes dryer, and it is harder to address common skin problems properly. 

One major area to focus on specifically is your face, which is why we offer a wide range of facial care wipes. You need to consistently and habitually clean your face. Removing makeup every single night is crucial because makeup can clog your pores, which ultimately leads to acne breakouts and other issues. 

However, skincare isn’t just for your face. People also use body wipes and feet care wipes to address specific skin needs. Wiping off sweat throughout the day and exfoliating properly are just some steps you can take to preserve your skin. 

 

Wet wipes are used around the globe for a variety of reasons. We are committed to developing a catalog of new products that prioritize comfort, safety, and convenience. This means that we are continually improving our ability to customize products based on clients’ specific needs. As European wet wipes manufacturers, we take great pride in the quality of our products and the contribution they make to your everyday life.

wet wipes production process

Wet Wipes Production Process

Come behind the scenes with us and learn about our wet wipes production process in manufacturing plants all over the world. 

The wet wipes production process is a complex one, with each step requiring much thought. This is even more true when running a global production. Here at Albaad, we have manufacturing plants all over the world, including in the USA, Germany, Poland, Spain, and Israel. Each plant has hundreds of employees and has broad production capabilities. Because of our vast production capacity, we’re able to deliver large orders around the world quickly. 

Because we are running a global operation, there is a lot of work involved in delivering our high-quality products. Here are some interesting factors to keep in mind about the wet wipes production process: 

Wet Wipes Material

Our dedicated R&D team is proficient in each of the specific areas needed to produce world-class wipes. From start to finish, we create our wipes with the highest quality materials (many are in-house). We select the exact fibers necessary for each particular type of cloth sheet. We then integrate the perfect combination of materials, fibers, lotions, cleaning solution or chemicals needed to create each particular wipe product. It is also critical to consider regulatory requirements in our design process. This way, our products meet strict international standards in the marketplace. One example of this is our in-house production of Hydrofine’s moist toilet tissue. Its flushable fabric is made with natural fibers. This allows us to ensure the sustainability of our product from the earliest stages of production. Hydrofine has been rigorously tested and received flushability certifications at the most stringent institutes in the US and Europe.

Albaad’s Machinery

Have you ever wondered how enormous production machines stay clean and safe? At Albaad Iberia, we invested in a new CIP (clean-in-place) system. This provides us with the highest levels of cleanliness and sanitation for our production lines. Our fully automated system cleans the liquid pipe systems of our equipment, allowing for a consistent and efficient process while creating a safe environment for our employees. This is just one more step that we have taken to improve the versatility and safety of our powerful operations system.

Manufacturing Options

We offer different manufacturing options, from private label and contract manufacturing to institutional manufacturing. Private label means that you choose one of our existing products and use your company branding to sell it. You have a ready product to sell (you can always customize your product to suit your exact needs). If you are looking for contract wet wipes manufacturers, the process is different. You figure out each component of the product from scratch, with our help and expertise. Our institutional manufacturing capabilities are the best solution for hospitals, elderly care facilities, and general care.

Customization 

As a vertical manufacturer, we can customize every step of the wet wipes production process according to your specific needs. This makes us the perfect fit for all of our global clients. We consider elements like ingredients, fragrance, size, shape, weight, and packaging, and we ensure your product meets both international and local requirements.

Albaad Employees

The most important element of our wet wipes production process is our employees. Our operation is smooth and seamless because of the people who make Albaad what it is. On our LinkedIn account (https://www.linkedin.com/company/albaad), we introduce you to our global team. We shine the spotlight on our employees because we are proud of them and of the work they do. 

We take wet wipes seriously and carefully consider every step of the production process. Learn more about how we operate as European wet wipes manufacturers and how we can help you.
