Suominen launches BIOLACE® Ultrasoft, a nonwoven for personal care and baby products made of plant-based, biodegradable, plastic-free, and compostable raw materials. BIOLACE® Ultrasoft is the newest addition to Suominen’s sustainable product portfolio and a continuation for our growing BIOLACE® product line that was launched over a decade ago.
Suominen’s strategy focuses on growth by creating innovative and more sustainable nonwovens. “Our strategy is put into action with the new innovative and sustainable products such as BIOLACE® Ultrasoft. In 2020, the sales of sustainable products increased by more than 20 % compared to the base year of 2019,” says Lynda Kelly, SVP, Americas & Business Development.
BIOLACE® Ultrasoft was developed to match both the sustainability demands and the quality expectations of our customers and the consumers. BIOLACE® Ultrasoft nonwovens structure and composition enables 25 % higher cleaning efficiency compared to same basis weight of 100 % viscose spunlace and a 38 % improvement when compared to polyester wipes, according to tests conducted by Suominen.
“BIOLACE® Ultrasoft is a sustainable product with great cleaning efficiency and exceptional softness. It is a perfect solution for baby and personal care products, such as cosmetic wipes and baby wipes. The softness makes it also suitable for gentle skin products,” says Johanna Sirén, Manager, Category Management.
