Hygenex Eco-Friendly Flushable
& Compostable Patient Wipes

A convenient solution for simple-yet-effective skin and surface cleansing, the Hygenex range of wet and dry wipes are soft, strong and easy to dispose of – just flush them away when you’re done.

Made from 100% non-woven cellulosic material, these cleaning wipes have been developed to deliver exceptional performance whilst offering outstanding environmentally friendly benefits. They are fully tested and compliant with EDANA & INDA standards, while also being suitable for macerators, where required.


What’s more, your conscience can be clear knowing that Hygenex wipes are made from 100% natural materials, which will quickly break down into non-toxic components. This means they’ll cause no harm to the environment – or your plumbing systems!

Designed with all personal care and cleaning tasks in mind, they are ideal for use at home, in healthcare, or anywhere with a need for quick and reliable cleansing.

What Makes Hygenex Wipes Different?

To put it simply, they are fully compostable – they completely break down and disperse into 100% organic matter.

Whilst many competitor products can claim that they are biodegradable, this simply means that they will eventually break down into smaller pieces by natural processes.

In reality what this means is they decompose into microplastics, further polluting our already dangerously damaged natural environment.
