LUCCA, ITALY, May 26, 2020 (Press Release) -Sofidel, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of tissue paper for hygienic and domestic use, continues to innovate and diversify its solutions for personal and household hygiene proposing the new Nicky Defend, a disposable tissue paper towel with antibacterial lotion designed for the Consumer market and specifically developed to guarantee proper hygiene.

The issue of hygiene is one of the Group’s key concerns, especially now that the Covid-19 pandemic has focused everyone’s attention – thanks to the efforts, among others, of the World Health Organization (WHO) and public health authorities worldwide – on the importance of using disposable paper products to ensure proper personal hygiene and cleanliness in the workplace and at home.

Generally used in public spaces and workplaces (Away-from-Home), disposable paper towels are now making their entrance into homes, offering a soft, strong and absorbent alternative to fabric towels for drying the hands.

Disposable antibacterial towels are designed to retain the germs and bacteria present on wet hands and prevent them from multiplying, and the special interfolded dispensing system allows the towels to be taken out one at a time, protecting the product against external contamination. It actually represents an effective way of further raising the level of personal hygiene and cleanliness at home.

Thanks to the DissolveTech technology, Nicky Defend towels are also 100% biodegradable and can be individually flushed after use. The towels dissolve in water like normal toilet paper without creating blockages, while preventing the dispersion of germs and bacteria into the air and the environment, thus further contributing to high levels of hygiene and comfort.
