Ill-pads / Material application


In Taiwan, the wet climate in winter makes bacteria easier to grow, but the sanitary pads users wouldn’t see this. In order to let the user know whether the sanitary pads can be used or not, we design the “ill- pads ” with color identification.Function: Damp part of the sanitary pads which grow bacteria will show green color, which can be easily identified as being placed for too long.
