Kelheim Fibres

Wood-based alternative for feminine hygiene nonwovens

Kelheim Fibres

The premium tampon fiber Galaxy by the cellulose fiber producer Kelheim Fibres GmbH, Kelheim/Germany, can substitute up to 70% of the synthetics in ADL (Acquisition-Distribution-Layers) in feminine hygiene pads.
The viscose hygiene fibers Galaxy offer significant ecologic advantages: they are made from cellulose, and they are fully biodegradable in arid as well as maritime environments.
These fibers are manufactured exclusively in Germany, in, according to the producer, an environmentally friendly plant. Due to its wicking and absorption capacity the fiber Galaxy conducts liquids quickly and efficiently away from the body and leaves a pleasant feeling on the skin. In addition, Galaxy helps to distribute the liquid evenly in the absorbent core while providing lower rewetting.
