What is Moist Toilet Tissue?

Moist toilet tissue is a more eco-friendly way to maintain personal hygiene both at home and while out and about. It combines the convenience and effectiveness of wet wipes, with the more eco-friendly nature of toilet paper. 

Moist toilet tissue, when manufactured (and disposed of) correctly, is fully flushable. Here’s how. 

If we take Albaad’s hydrofine technology as an example, when applied to their moist toilet tissue manufacturing it produces a fully flushable wipe produced from a strong and electric-based sheet. This has the added bonus of producing a strong, reliable wipe and one that is also biodegradable. This is what makes quality, sustainable moist toilet tissue unique. 

A quality moist toilet tissue must also pass regulatory standards in the country where it is going to be distributed, sold and used. Generally these regulations involve a flushability test. 

The 3 main standards for moist toilet tissue include –

  1. The IWSFG Flushability Standard Test
  2. Fine to Flush Standards (UK Water Industry)
  3. EDANA/INDA flushability guidelines, GD-4 compliant

Passing all of these standards ensures a moist toilet tissue is fully flushable. 

Moist toilet tissue can be manufactured to meet the needs of any distributor. The types available include –

For adults, with extra conditioning agents.

For children, with fun and fruity fragrances. 

For feminine hygiene and intimate areas, requiring sensitive ingredients. 

Moist toilet tissue can be used at home, or on the go. It offers all of the convenience and effectiveness of wet wipes, and it is flushable too.

optimum baby wipes

What Makes for an Optimum Baby Wipe?

Baby wipes are wet wipes that help cleanse the skin of infants. This product has become a staple in parent’s homes to help ensure that their baby is healthy and clean. These wipes are coated with solutions that use gentle cleansing ingredients for optimum use. The origin of baby wipes begins around the mid-1950s, developed from the normal cleansing wipe that was famously created because people were travelling and needed a way to clean on the go. 

Because the technology in producing wipes matured and became an affordable process, a variety of health brands put the manufacturing of baby wipes at the forefront. This caused a great surge in the industry and local brands began to produce this item because of low entry barriers. Baby wipes are not only an essential, but they pave the way for groundbreaking advancements in health and safety benefits for baby care.

Baby wipes are incredibly important for cleaning bacteria off of sensitive areas of the body. Mess from dirty diapers and play time can increase levels of pH, which makes the skin more susceptible to irritation which can cause severe itching or rashes. Cleaning the skin with these wipes can help remove irritants and restore the skin’s natural pH level. As a parent, discovering ways to make sure your child is safe is a number one priority. Wet wipe manufacturers around the world are helping parents reach that goal and ensuring that their product is easy to use and incredibly hygienic at the same time. 

As more millennial parents begin to educate themselves on the sustainability and organic value of wipes, a variety of companies are developing products to suit the needs of the customer. This was able to create a surge and a major rise in the global market for baby wipes. In 2019, the market size value for baby wipes was a total of 4.6 billion dollars and this is expected to grow at an annual rate of 5.2 from 2020 to 2027. Parents nowadays are concerned about their child’s sensitive skin and prefer using baby wipes over dry wipes because of the associated benefits. 80% of millennials with children are in their 30s and they favor spending their national median income on baby products with high quality. 

Due to the excess demand of baby wipes, it becomes difficult to target what makes for a great product. Choosing a baby wipe ultimately depends on use and preference. It is important to note that all skin types are different and your little one might be sensitive to certain formulas and fragrances compared to other children, so this process does consist of trial and error. The best things to look out for include price, environmental benefits, ingredients and quantity. All wipes are nontoxic, but some may consist of certain ingredients that could potentially irritate the skin. There are a variety of wipes that are fragrance-free or all-natural making it easier and healthier for your child. 

It is crucial that parents are willing to do a bit of research on what baby wipe is best for their child. As the market surges, there are more and more products that cater to what your baby needs. Baby wipes have grown into a primary product so whether they are used to change diapers, to use after messy meals, or for sticky hands after playing out all day, they are everything a child needs to feel clean and safe.

How effective are they?

 

Very! Generally, depending on their makeup, they are capable of killing 99.9% of bacteria and fungi found on a surface or piece of equipment. This makes them very effective and the best solution for cleaning in sensitive environments or in environments where optimum hygiene is necessary.

which wet wipes are best for babies

Which Wet Wipes are the Best for Babies?

When it comes to customizing wipes for babies there are a number of considerations to take into account. 

 

Baby wipes are a popular product – loved by parents and other users alike. In the US alone over 100 million wet wipes for babies are produced and used a year. It is estimated that in the first year of a baby’s life parents will use anywhere from 12,000 wet wipes upwards. At around 1,000 wet wipes a month, the demand is almost insatiable.

 

Baby wipes are used by parents for the cleaning of their infants skin. Usually during a diaper change, but they can also be used to clean any part of the body or baby. While they are a great solution for parents who are out and about with their baby, or travelling, they are also now a popular solution used at home as well. 

 

Parents need to trust the baby wipe they are using. This trust extends to their belief in the product as a safe and effective one. Baby wipes need to be manufactured taking into account the sensitivity of babies skin, compared to adults. Generally the demand is increasingly for fragrance free wipes, and the demand for quality ingredients is high. 

 

Parents also want a wet wipe for their baby that is effective. One that cleans, and is durable and strong. Given how often and how many times in a day parents of babies use wet wipes, they expect a quality product. 

 

One of the biggest selling points driving sales of baby wet wipes is convenience. Handy packaging (from larger to mini packs) means they can be carried anywhere – in the baby bag, in the car or in the nursery at home. Parents are able to always have something to hand to clean their baby when necessary. Their disposable nature is also a big plus in terms of their convenience. 

 

When it comes to manufacturing a baby wipe you need a wet wipe manufacturer who understands the needs of the wet wipes for babies market. You need a manufacturer with the proven expertise to produce customised wet wipes for some of the world’s leading brands. Someone they trust, and someone in turn that parents trust.

Wet wipes manufacturing is advancing and improving all the time – not only to be able to provide a better quality product for suppliers and consumers but also to move in line with the times.

In recent years the long term sustainability of wet wipes has been called into question. But this is something leading wet wipe manufacturers have not shied away from answering or discussing. In fact, the discussion and the debate has spurred many of them to produce biodegradable wet wipes, some of which are also fully-flushable. 

Wet wipes manufacturers are, for the most part, committed to finding ways, methods and developing new technologies to ensure that their products not only continue to protect the health of those who use them, but also are developed in-line with a commitment to a more sustainable future for everyone.

pH balancing wipes

What are pH balancing wipes?

Companies that provide cleaning wipes have been looking to expand and elevate their products all whilst maintaining an eco friendly and sustainable mindset. A new addition to these items include pH balancing wipes which is a feminine hygiene product that removes odor caused by bacteria and helps balance pH levels. It can be extremely difficult to know what a good feminine hygiene routine is, what products to use, and who to trust. However, there are several companies that provide products with the correct pH that are alcohol-free, organic, and unmedicated. Feminine care products like these make it easier for women to feel confident and healthy without all the hassle of trying to find the product that is best for them. 

Uses of pH balancing wipes

pH balancing wipes or feminine wipes are used to clean the vaginal area. Women can use these during menstruation or use them everyday to prevent infections and odor. Fragrance found in these wipes are commonly tested and are free of parabens and dyes to ensure the safety of use for all women. These cleaning wipes are made with substances designed to prevent irritation and can be used to just clean and refresh the area. 

pH balancing wipe manufacturers have also created ways in which their products can be stored appropriately with different options for packaging, including smaller sized options, that are easy to stash in your purse, gym bag, and even wallet. They are perfect to use for a post workout routine or during a long day at work.

pH balancing wipes

Well-known gynecologist from Westchester Country, New York and author of The Complete A to Z for your V, Alyssa Dweck M.D., states that in most instances pH wipes are safe to use. Feminine wipes are commonly used for odor purposes only, but this is quoted by Dr. Dweck as the Band-Aid effect. Women should not be solely relying on pH balancing wipes as a source of cleaning, but it is a handy product to carry around in case it becomes rather difficult to be able to clean that area. Dr. Dweck highlights that every vagina contains a natural odor that does not need to be masked, but if you notice any unusual scents or major irritation, consult with your gynecologist to rule out any infections. 

These cleaning wipes help clean away any marks around the vaginal area whilst providing moisture that prevents your most sensitive area feeling uncomfortable or irritated. Some pH products even contain natural ingredients such as aloe to help soothe the area. Feminine wipes are more pleasant on vulval skin than other treatments. This area is known as being very sensitive and can be prone to irritation and dry skin, so the use of wipes become a safer and easier way to ensure comfortability. Furthermore, using other feminine hygiene products such as a pad or tampon can easily retain unwanted bacteria to your vagina. These cleaning wipes can help clean away that bacteria and help support the levels of bacteria without damaging sensitive skin. The packages that they are distributed in are handy and help immensely when other cleaning alternatives may not be available. 

It is important to be aware that some feminine wet wipe manufacturers claim that their product is “pH balancing”, but tend to actually fluctuate the levels causing disruption or irritation around the area. Glycerin and alcohol have the ability to dry out the sensitive skin around the vagina and can potentially affect the body part internally if not used properly. It is also important to avoid feminine wipes if you are experiencing any infection or any complications noted by your gynecologist. This makes it extremely crucial to note that if you are purchasing pH balancing wipes, it is essential that you are doing extensive research to find the product that is the most organic and contains minimal ingredients.

household cleaning wipes

Household Cleaning Wipes and Why They are the Best for Household Cleaning 

There are currently a variety of household cleaning wipes that are perfect for cleaning and destroying powerful germs. Currently antibacterial wipes are the leading product when it comes to household cleaning supply purchases. They are the easiest product in terms of usage, disposability, and spotlessness. Over the past 18 months it has become crucial that the cleaning products used inside family homes are able to not only keep the house clean, but eradicate germs too. 

Household cleaning wipes work by physically removing the germs off the surface. The germs are then attached to the wipe making it fairly easy and quick to get them off of your services. The active chemical generally found in wipes is antiseptic which is usually benzalkonium chloride, a chemical that is approved to kill germs. These wipes are more effective and easier than towels and sprays because they are one-step, easy designs. 

Cleaning with other products does not offer the same protection and safety as household wipes do. For example, using a contaminated towel can actually spread bacteria and germs to an uncontaminated surface. Wipes help get rid of this issue by being able to eliminate germs off surfaces with only a limited number of strokes.

Household cleaning wipes manufacturers have also wipes tailored to many families’ needs. This includes the change in certain components so that the wipe is allergen free and environmentally viable. And if you follow the distinctive instructions on their packaging, it is for certain that the wipes are safe to use.  With proper use household cleaning wipes can properly eliminate the germs off your counters and services. 

Household cleaning wipes are found in almost every home in the world. They are designed to target bacteria and viruses on harsh surfaces such as counters, TV, phones, hinges and more. They are not as effective on soft products which include clothing or certain fabrics. 

Many wipes do in fact kill the coronavirus, but it is important to thoroughly check if the ones you are using can. There are hundreds of EPA-registered wipes that can kill COVID-19 and which are incredibly important and powerful in protecting you and your family.

The most popular types are disinfecting wipes and antibacterial wipes. The difference between the two is that antibacterial wipes kill bacteria not viruses. It is important to note that a variety of disinfectant wipes are pre-soaked in disinfectant ingredients such as quaternary ammonium, sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, and others. These wipes have been tested as more effective than all use all-purpose cleaning wipes as well as antibacterial wipes. These are a reliable source in protecting your family from certain viruses including COVID-19. 

Household cleaning wipes are a true staple for not only homes, but all venue types and settings. Several tests have been conducted to show that certain ones have helped kill the SARS-CoV-2.

are wet wipes safe for dogs

Are Wet Wipes Safe For Dogs?

Generally, yes! Wet wipes can be safe for dogs, cats, and cows and all other types of pets and domesticated animals. You just need to make sure you are using the right ones. Just as there are wipes specially developed and manufactured for babies, so too there are wipes designed and produced for animal care. From birds to horses, and every other domestic animal in between, wet wipes can be a convenient and safe solution for pet owners, veterinarians and anyone involved in the care of animals.

When it comes to choosing a safe and effective wet wipe for animal care it is important to choose one which has been designed and customized for animals. This is priority number one. There are many types of wet wipes available for a myriad of different uses and it is not recommended to use general wet wipes on your pets. Dogs, for example, have a different skin Ph balance than animals, and customized dog wipes would reflect this. 

Leading veterinary wet wipes manufacturers and pet wipes manufacturers will understand what it takes to produce a high-quality, safe animal care product. 

What are some of the specific types of wet wipes for animals?

Animal cleaning wipes

No-rinse shampoo wipes are great to keep your pet or veterinary clinic animals clean without the need for the mess and stress of an actual bath. Just wipe and clean. Shampoo wipes are usually produced in a larger size, for animals of all sizes and for the most effective cleaning. They can also be customized to ensure great smelling fur. 

Bath wipes for dogs can also be useful for those with allergies to pet fur or dander and when produced correctly are a type of wet wipes considered safe for dogs, even when used regularly. Pet no-rinse shampoo wipes can be used to clean a dog regularly and in the process remove outdoor allergens that may have become stuck to their fur. 

Wipes for paw and fur cleaning are great for keeping both pets and homes clean. The best ones are those developed with moisturizing ingredients that condition your pet and animals fur as they clean. Paw cleaning wipes also mean keeping your home or clinic clean regardless of what your dog, for example, walked in before coming inside. These wipes make for good hygiene for everyone. Some wipes for pets are designed with insect repellent ingredients which can be useful if you have a dog or other pet who is outside a lot. 

Some wipes are designed and produced especially for farm animals. One specific example is wet wipes designed for dairy cows in order to ensure clean and try teat care to prevent mastitis in milking cows. 

Wet wipes for animal care are convenient, time saving and easy to use solutions. Just make sure you choose the right manufacturer who understands what it means to fully customize and personalize pet wipes manufacturing based on your customers needs.

moist toilet tissue

Moist Toilet Tissue

Moist toilet tissue is a viable alternative to toilet paper and unlike traditional wet wipes it is, when used according to its manufacturers directions (these can be found on the packet) completely flushable. It must also pass Flushability standards or meet Fine to Flush standards in the country in which it is being used. Each country and region has its own standards and a global wet wipes manufacturer will ensure its moist toilet tissue meets all of these standards to be a truly flushable wipe manufacturer. 

So why moist toilet tissue?

  1. It is truly flushable – if you opt for moist toilet tissue manufactured by a global leader such as Albaad, for example. Not only do their flushable wipes pass the main international standards on flushability, their electric-base sheet makes them fully biodegradable.
  2. Quality moist toilet tissue feels great and smooth on the skin of the user. It can be customized with any number of cleansing ingredients and fragrances for a great user experience. 
  3. It cleans efficiently, more so than toilet paper because it can be customized to meet specific consumer needs. 
  4. It is convenient and can be used anywhere – and is the perfect go to when toilet paper is not available. 
  5. It can be used for a wide range of purposes – from personal cleaning, to the cleaning of objects when out and about. If produced in single-packaging, it can be easy to carry around and keep with you anywhere, everywhere. 

Personalization

Moist toilet tissue can be customized and manufactured to meet the needs of a wide demographic and consumer base.

For adults – it can be infused with a wide range of conditioning agents for cleaning and optimum skin care. It can be personalized for sensitive skin, and for different parts of the body, to reflect the many different ways in which it can be used by a wide client base. 

For children – it can be manufactured with fun and fruity fragrances that make personal hygiene fun, easy and appealing even to the very youngest of children. It can also be produced with ingredients that respect the more sensitive skin of babies, toddlers and young children. 

For feminine hygiene – it can be modified to ensure the safe and effective cleaning of intimate areas without causing irritation, including fragrance free options. 

For menstruation – it can be produced with extra absorption properties to the cleaning of bodily fluids effectively.

With a ‘bidet’ effect – complete with additional cleansing ingredients and properties in order to provide a cleaner, more effective solution than traditional toilet paper.

Moist toilet tissue represents a large step forward in terms of wet wipes manufacturing. It represents the compromise between convenience, that people have come to expect and demand from wet wipes and how and where they use them, and sustainability – if manufactured and used in line with flushability standards, they won’t create fatbergs, and block water systems. In fact the opposite – they are a sustainable alternative in themselves.
