Properties of wet cleaning wipes in relation to their intended use such as: soil removal capacity, antistatic properties, streak-free shine etc., become self-evident. Furthermore skin compatibility and environmental aspects are important issues.Therefore, many wet wipe formulations based on water.
Wet tissues are an excellent source of growth for bacteria, yeasts and moulds. Environmental acceptability, including the sustainable use of raw materials, is becoming a decisive factor to customers.
The synergistic combination of benzisothiazolone (BIT), methylisothiazolinone (MIT) and bis(3-aminopropyl)dodecylamine (BDA) has been shown to minimize the level of biocidal actives needed for preservation. With the Hygiene- Concept, it is possible to control waterborne contaminations and impure natural nonwovens by adding a single optimized dosage of preservative. Along with the economic and product safety improvements, this approach fulfils the demands for eco-labels like European Flower, White Swan and even from the German Öko-Test magazine.
