    Feminine hygiene products

    Leading an active life without constraints – day after day: Superabsorbents are the secret behind today's trend towards smaller and thinner sanitary napkins, improving a woman's wellbeing so she can always feel at her best.

    Modern feminine care products consist of thin cores that are manufactured directly or use airlaid technology and are low-loaded with superabsorbents.

    For feminine-care products the absorption of blood is an important requirement and BASF superabsorbents provide this feature whilst retaining good core integrity.
