Wet tissues are an excellent breeding ground for the growth of bacteria, yeast and mould. Environmental requirements e.g. from the EU Detergent Directive to use only biodegradable detergents increase the susceptibility of the wet tissues to microbial infection.
The demand for flushable wipes and the increased use of natural fibres make mould growth with its easily visible staining more likely. To ensure product and consumer safety, the addition of preservatives is necessary; but also the biocides have to be biodegradable.
schülke offers a wide variety of easy-handling liquid blends to meet almost any preservation need.
