INDA Announces World of Wipes Innovation Award Finalists Winner to be Selected at 2021 World of Wipes International Conference this July in Atlanta

Nonwoven-based wipe products for sanitizing, cleaning and beauty applications from Kimberly-Clark Professional, Lenzing and SharkNinja are the finalists vying for this year’s prestigious World of Wipes Innovation Award® that will be selected at the 15th edition of the 2021 World of Wipes® (WOW) International Conference, July 12-15, in Atlanta, Georgia.

These three leading companies will present their innovations live at WOW 2021 to the wipes professionals attending the in-person event who hold an important one-third of the vote in their hands.

Finalists for the World of Wipes Innovation Award are:

  • Kimberly-Clark Professional: Scott® 24 Hour Sanitizing Wipes are the first pre-saturated wipes to quickly disinfect and maintain surface sanitization for 24 hours, killing 99.9 percent of bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes and Community-Associated Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Bacteria. The wipes patented formulation is found to be effective by the United States Environmental Protection Agency for disinfecting on hard, non-porous surfaces against numerous strains of bacteria and viruses, including SARS-COV-2 when used as directed. (It is not approved in California for use against SARS-CoV-2.);
  • LENZING™: LENZING Lyocell Skin fibers are designed with a patented technology that makes them translucent when impregnated with serum. Designed for the growing facial sheet mask market, these fibers are the basis for a premium facial sheet mask skincare routine that meets the expectations for translucency, smoothness, fineness and comfort. LENZING Lyocell Skin fibers are an exquisite solution for consumer demands for more sustainable single-use masks made from natural cellulose and contributing to circularity; and
  • SharkNinja: The Shark VACMOP™ is a cordless hard floor cleaning system that utilizes suction and spray mopping for a more thorough clean. The all-in-one disposable pad uses multiple nonwoven types allowing consumers to pick up and lock away dry debris, and also spray-mop to tackle the toughest messes. Shark VACMOP pads consist of two components – a dirt chamber that collects and locks away dirt and debris picked up by vacuum, and a fiber pad that mops up tough messes. Lightweight and cordless, the Shark VACMOP goes anywhere. With a click of a button, the pad can be tossed away – without touching the dirty pad.

Attendees at WOW 2021 will reportedly have the opportunity to interact with and learn from the top companies who are changing the face of the wipes industry.

An “On-Demand” version of the WOW Conference speaker presentations and Q&A’s will be available for purchase after July 19.
