Putting a Face On Nonwovens: Nonwovens in the Beauty Industry

Posted by Chris Rowlett

nonwovens in beauty industryWhat do supermodels strutting down the runways of Paris have in common with the nonwovens industry?   Well, for one thing, they owe some of their flawlessness to nonwoven products. Granted, that’s probably stretching it just a hair, but you could probably expect to find at least one or two nonwoven products in dressing rooms, nail salons, spas and other bastions of beauty worldwide.

From depilatory strips to face masks to makeup applicators, nonwovens abound in the beauty industry. But why?


  1. They’re lightweight, but strong. Salons go through depilatory cloths by the dozens every day. Meltblown or spunbond nonwoven cloths are an inexpensive, lightweight and sturdy answer to this consistent salon need.

  2. They’re disposable…and hygienic. Hygiene is incredibly important in the beauty industry. After finishing with one client, salons can conveniently and quickly dispose of nonwoven fabrics and quickly clean the area before starting with another.

  3. They are flexible. And I don’t just mean in the traditional sense. You can emboss beauty wipes with signature patterns, make them antibacterial or add soothing lotions. Nonwoven fabrics can often be made more or less absorbent. Whatever your product need, nonwovens can usually be engineered to fit the bill.

If you are looking to enhance your product lines with nonwoven beauty products, talk to you nonwoven manufacturing partner to find out what you need to get started.
