Second, the non-woven fabric on the surface layer of the sanitary napkin absorbs the fluff pulp and polymer materials in the core layer, which are not nutrients for the survival of live insects.
The third is that the raw materials of sanitary napkins and the production of sanitary napkins themselves need to go through the process of high-speed rolling, high-temperature spraying and high-pressure embossing. Even if there are bugs in, it is impossible to survive in this environment.
Fourth, the production equipment of many enterprises has also been equipped with high-resolution visual inspection systems to monitor and remove products with dirt and foreign objects, even foreign objects as small as the size of a needle tip. The possibility of worms is extremely low.
The final product will go through several tests such as product appearance, microorganisms, physical and chemical indicators, etc. before leaving the factory, and the product must meet the national standards before leaving the factory.
