Innovation in Wet Wipe Preservatives

Wipes Don’t Go Moldy… Do They?

In this new approach to thinking about preservatives, we look at why we use preservatives in wipes, including regulatory and industry guidance. We will look at the current trend for consumers to be anti-preservatives and show how some brands are starting to turn this conversation around. This presentation will cover a wide range of wipes products, from baby wipes to disinfecting wipes and answer the question "Wipes don't go moldy… do they?"
