Always Infinity Pads, Always, 2017.
Advancing technology and fear of Toxic Shock Syndrome combined have successfully wooed consumers, but at what cost? According to the Center for Disease Control, approximately 62% of women today use pads. Since no perfect product yet exists, companies remain on a cycle of innovation. The next step in disposable pad innovation seems to be the use of Superabsorbent Polymers (SAPs), a material developed in Japan in the 1980’s. Brands like Always continue to integrate SAPs into their pad designs.
