Demanding times require products that meet consumers’ needs for functionality and hygiene without forgetting the environment. Suominen introduces a wide range of sustainable nonwovens for cleaning hard surfaces like floors in a home environment without compromise.
Innovation around sustainability is certainly nothing new for Suominen. Over ten years ago, we launched our compostable and biodegradable BIOLACE® product family. It is solely produced from renewable raw materials utilizing both natural and man-made cellulose-based resources with a range of basis weights and blends to different well also for floor cleaning.
The BIOLACE® product line is suitable for several end-uses as it combines different plant based raw materials with developed functionalities required in wipes and hygiene articles. Disposable wipes promote hygienic cleaning as a new fresh wipe taken from the package hasn’t suffered from washing and doesn’t have contaminations from previous uses. As BIOLACE® products are compostable and biodegradable also the environment outside the home is being well considered.
BIOLACE® Air provides an excellent cleaning experience due to high pulp content and higher basis weight. Adding 3D texture to its high lotion release and quick absorption it makes a perfect solution for different floor materials. Thanks to its cleanability features, BIOLACE® Air is an excellent choice when in need of a dry floor wiper.
BIOLACE® Pure has a 3-layer structure made of natural cellulosic fibers with a pulp core that guarantees optimal liquid management and distribution. The textile-like nonwoven has a superior cleanability compared to standard sustainable solutions due to the high surface area. Besides, BIOLACE® Pure has a high lotion load and less fluid migration in the package due to the multiple layers so each wipe guarantees the same cleaning results.
BIOLACE® Bamboo is a tree free and plastic free alternative for sustainable cleaning. Due to its very low linting, and superior absorption and dirt pick-up properties it can be considered a premium sustainable product especially for hard surface cleanings like floors and shiny surfaces.
Different aspects of sustainability are important to Suominen and Suominen’s customers. Suominen has developed a wide range of sustainable nonwovens that meet various sustainability needs. Suominen's sustainable product portfolio consists of products made from renewable, recycled, and/or plastic-free raw materials, as well as products that are biodegradable and compostable. These offer at the same time the possibility for a lower CO2 footprint compared to traditional nonwovens made of oil-based raw materials. The importance of certificates has increased significantly over the years. Suominen offers products on request with the chain of custody certifications for FSC®, PEFC™ & SFI®, as well as skin-safety certifications like STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and compliance with claims and labels such as TCF, Asthma&Allergy and Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
