Hygenex Maceratable & Flushable Wipes

Introducing our brand-new range of eco-friendly personal hygiene and cleaning wipes – completely maceratable, flushable, dispersible, biodegradable and compostable!

The Hygenex range of wet and dry wipes provide healthcare professionals with a high-quality product which can be disposed of in bedpan washers, macerators, slop hoppers or toilets. What’s more, your conscience can be clear knowing that they are made from 100% natural materials which will quickly break down into non-toxic components, causing no harm to the environment – or your plumbing systems!

Hygenex wipes are made from 100% non-woven cellulosic material. Soft yet strong, these cleaning wipes have been developed to deliver exceptional performance whilst offering outstanding environmentally friendly benefits. They are fully tested and compliant with EDANA & INDA standards of flushability.

Designed with all personal care and cleaning tasks in mind, they are ideal for use in hospitals, care homes, nursing homes and domiciliary care.

What Makes Hygenex Wipes Different?

To put it simply, they are fully compostable – they completely break down and disperse into 100% organic matter when disposed of in bedpan washers, macerators, slop hoppers or toilets.

Whilst many competitor products can claim that they are biodegradable, this simply means that they will eventually break down into smaller pieces by natural processes. In reality what this means is they decompose into microplastics, further polluting our already dangerously damaged natural environment.
