What is Tissue Cotton?

With the improvement of consumption level and the growth of hygiene and cleaning needs in the post-epidemic period, consumers have a higher pursuit of the functionality and professionalism of household tissue. Cotton tissue is a kind of non-woven fabric made of 100% cotton as raw material, processed by non-woven technology such as spunlace, and then cut into dry towel products of different sizes. It is a daily necessities that are often used in baby care and personal cleaning care. Unlike eyeglass lens cleaning tissues, which are specially used for cleaning items, cotton tissue can be in direct contact with the body, which is safer to be used as face cleaning wet tissue or face tissue wipes.

What Are Cotton Tissues Made of?

The general tissue paper is made of plant fibers or even chemical fibers. Different from traditional tissue paper, cotton tissue is made of 100% cotton. Cotton is a naturally grown fiber that can be used directly. In the process of making finished products, only simple physical impurity removal and carding are required without chemical processing, which is safer and healthier. Some products will be written "cotton like" or "cotton feel", and the products described in this way are not made of pure cotton unless they are "100% cotton". 100% cotton tissue does not add any chemical fiber, fluorescent agent, formaldehyde, fragrance, etc.

Is Cotton Tissue Biodegradable?

As mentioned before, cotton tissue is made of 100% cotton. Since cotton is made in nature, it can be biodegraded by nature. According to Cotton Incorporated's research report, cotton can be naturally degraded in a variety of environments, such as wastewater, soil, oceans, lakes, and more. It's estimated that there are now at least 5.25 trillion plastic particles, weighing 270,000 tons, floating in the world's oceans. Instead of breaking down, these particles continue to accumulate, causing further damage to the planet's marine habitats. Scientists predict that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the world's oceans than in fish.


What is Cotton Tissue Used for?

Premium Cotton tissue is an eco-friendly alternative to paper napkins and face towel. Winner uses spunlace non-woven fabric made of 100% cotton to make cotton tissue, which is thicker and more flexible than paper towels, and is more convenient and cleaner than towels. It can be used to clean the face, hands, and mouth, and it's more than enough for even delicate baby butts. Because of its soft texture, wet water does not break, so it can also replace face towel to wash your face. It can also be paired with a makeup remover to remove make-up, or soaked in a toner and applied to the face. Since it does not add any chemical additives and has passed the EU's safety standards, it can also be in direct contact with food, used to scrub fruit and contain food.

The invention of cotton tissue originated from the spunlace nonwoven technology of Winner Medical. Different from the spunlace non-woven fabrics produced by other manufacturers, this technology uses 100% cotton as the raw material, combined with the post-bleaching process, so that the microbial burden of the fabric is extremely low, and the flexibility of the fabric is at a high-quality state. Moreover, due to the breathability and softness of cotton, the cotton spunlace non-woven fabric is softer and more skin-friendly, which is an ideal material for cotton tissue.
