Towel and tissue paper maker Cascades Tissue Group is rolling out Cascades Antibacterial Paper

November 6, 2012


• Towel and tissue paper maker Cascades Tissue Group is rolling out Cascades Antibacterial Paper Towel, which minimizes hand contamination by killing 99.99% of harmful bacteria almost instantly.

The green-colored Cascades antibacterial paper towel doesn’t require additional steps and compensates for people’s imperfect hygiene habits without changing the way they wash or dry their hands, according to Cascades Tissue Group, which North America’s fourth largest producer of towel and tissue paper.

When the towel comes in contact with hands, it releases benzalkonium chloride—the same active ingredient used in gel sanitizers, baby wipes and antiseptic skin solutions.

First cleared by Health Canada, Cascades’ innovative paper product now complies with the regulation and policies of the US FDA.

Suzanne Blanchet, CEO of Cascades Tissue Group said “while this is a groundbreaking innovation, the Antibacterial Paper Towel makes good common sense as it relates to human health. We believe the product will revolutionize the paper towel’s role in proper hygiene because of its efficacy and because it doesn’t require a change of habits.”
