With the employment of a cutting edge cleantech, patented technique, Biodipers provides the best absorption, comfort, and skin protection through sustainable products. Biodiper addresses the Baby, Feminine and Family Care markets through its innovative ecofriendly products.
The proposed technology can be applied to any type of product with an absorbing function and will represent the first biological absorbent featuring a soothing function thanks to the unique properties of the natural materials employed.
This patented technology represents an innovation in the absorbency products due to the high surface area and unique physical and chemical propertiesof the natural nanoparticles employed.The abundant avilability and inexpensive nature of the raw materials target both a sustainable development and decrease of manufacturing costs. Biodipers will deliver an innovative product that is safe and effective; free of chemicals and dyes but also absorbent and leak-free.
Biodiapers is an academic spin-off that aims at producting and marketing disposable hygene products for babies, feminine hygene and elderly incontinence exploiting a patented cleantech process.
High absorbent performance across a life span: the sustainable choice you wanted.
Absorbency without thoughts: the tranquillity of being dry while preventing diaper dermatitis (DD) or incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD). Absorbency without irritation problems and allergy even for the most delicate skins (1).
The proposed technology is designed for maximum leakage protection through the employment of a naturally occurring material such as clay. The latter allows to keep the skin drier and to maintain a stable skin pH decreasing dermatitis occurrance, compared to currently in use synthetic superabsorbent polymers.
The low environmental impact of Biodipers products is achieved through the employement of fewer plastics and more renewable materials through a patented technology
TARGET MARKET: The company, through its technologies targets the following markets:
-The consumer healthcare market: this market shows a TAM of 405b USD and projects a CAGR of 5.6% on average until 2024
Innovation in Absorbency – from childhood needs to feminine and senile needs throughout a life span of comfort and sustainability – comes to us from Nature.
Clay is the natural element that leads to this revolution: Biodiapers has created a brand new absorbent material, which combines clay bound to a fabric through a patented process, thus creating a totally hypoallergenic and sustainable product with decreased manufacturing costs and enhanced skin health.
The innovative technology used by Biodiapers is based on micro-granular clay, an absolutely natural element traditionally used in the Middle East until the middle of the last century by mothers and their children.
The clay neutralizes the organic materials with which it comes into contact. The different grain sizes of the granular clay, with enhanced mechanical properties in comparison to currently used superabsorbent polymers, are inserted into a natural fabric with a mesh structure.
Currently employed superabsorbent polymers and gels are under scientific evaluation due to emergency of collateral effects such as exposure of infants to endocrine disruptors (2), skin rashes and dermatitis.
The cleantech solution proposed by Biodipers overcomes these issues and permits a lower environmental impact. Use of disposable products in hospitals continues to increase despite limited landfill space and dwindling natural resources. With the increase of the elderly population and the impact of hospithalized elderly patients, through the employment of Biodipers ecofriendly patented technique, hospitals would have a specific measure to substantially reduce one of the most impacting nonhazardous hospital waste item (3).
The product developed is able to perform, in addition to the traditional containment function, also a preventive function, through the dehydration and neutralization of biological materials. Clay, by its nature, has highly absorbent and hygienic functions. The granulation and porosity of the clay makes it possible to increase the surface area on which excretions are deposited. The innovative approach consists not only in the selection of the material, but also in the use of an appropriate granular size.
A new diaper produced with exclusively natural, sustainable and hypoallergenic materials, the absorbent part in micro-granular clay guarantees high levels of absorbency, odour control and rapid dehydration even of the faeces.
A modern absorbent, natural and comfortable to use. Long stay and control of absorbency thanks to the naturalness of the micro-granular clay.
A diaper that can stay on longer without frequent changes, urine and faecal control even in bedridden patients, reducing the risk of infection.
Future developments: the technology may be developed for hospitalized patients and may be further implemented with biosensors to monitor skin and patient’s health.
