Cardia Bioplastics supplied Chinese manufacturer Ben’s Land Baby Articles Corp Ltd with a new compostable moisture barrier film (“Bio-Film”) for the manufacture of a range of baby diaper/nappy and feminine hygiene products.
Cardia Bioplastics was approached by Ben’s Land to collaborate in the development of this specialist film product following demand from United States and European customers for more environmentally friendly hygiene products.
Testing confirmed that, compared to conventional plastic films, Cardia Compostable “Bio-Film” provides the required high performance moisture barrier to prevent leaking, facilitates breathability to keep skin drier, and is soft for comfort.

Achieving the right film for these personal hygiene applications was challenging. Cardia worked closely with Ben’s Land to bring this application of Cardia Compostable “Bio-Film” to market.
