Natracare Safe To Flush Moist Tissues Are Truly Fine To Flush

By now you’ve probably heard of the infamous fatbergs forming in our sewers. These fatbergs are made up of all the things you’re not supposed to flush –  tampons, pads, nappies, and especially wet wipes.

There are 366,000 of these sewer blockages every year. 93% of these blockages are caused by wet wipes, which are often made from plastic.

At Natracare we like to solve problems, so we’re launching Europe’s first truly flushable Moist Tissue wipes.

Proudly Fine to Flush!

Water UK recently announced a new and rigorous test for wet wipes and moist tissues, in an attempt to clarify what can actually be safely flushed down the toilet.

We are proud to say that our Safe to Flush Moist Tissues are the first and only wipes to achieve the Water UK requirements and the “Fine to Flush” logo!

Across the world,around 14,000 wet wipes are used every second, if everyone swapped over to 100% truly flushable paper-based alternatives, it would help halt global plastic pollution and reduce harm to our oceans.

The Safe to Flush wipes are 100% compostable and moistened with natural and organic ingredients, meaning they’re suitable for all skin types, including sensitive baby skin and that of young children; they are hypoallergenic and fragrance free.

What can they be used for?

Natracare Moist Tissues are for cleaning bottoms – women who are menstruating; parents of young children; elderly people; disabled people and their carers, and those who find it painful or difficult to wipe with paper. You can use them to wipe anything you like!

Natracare Safe to Flush Moist Tissues can be found in Waitrose and online at Ocado from March and available at independent health stores around the UK.

They retail at £1.99 for a pack of 30. Find out more about the natracare safe to flush tissue here.

    Unfortunately ethics and the environment will sadly be flushed down the toilet when you can get a pack of flushable wipes from any supermarket for around 65p for 42 wipes (cheaper still with the triple packs) yet 30 of yours retail at £1.99?! Austerity forces everyone to buy cheap nowadays…

      Unfortunately, I have to sadly agree with Craig 🙁

    • Natracare said:

      We see what you’re saying, the cost reflects the use of organic ingredients, ensuring the wipes are both skin and marine friendly. Other products on the market contain harsh alcohols, plastic and chemicals which dry skin out and contribute to plastic pollution. The best thing is to drive change for people knowing what can really be flushed.

    Brilliant. Are they only available online? I am really interested if it protects marine life. In fact I think others should be banned. Are they vegan too? Ta

    • Natracare said:

      Hi Lynne, the moist tissues are available online. You can buy in store too – the majority of independent health food shops can order them in very easily and they are also available in larger Waitrose stores! And, yes they are vegan!

    • Natracare said:

      Hi Neil, all larger Waitrose stores are stocking the flushable moist tissues and any of your local health food shops will be able to order them in very easily if they don’t already have them in store.

    If people use them, they will get cheaper. If the law changes, they will get cheaper still.

    I have been buying Safe to Flush moist tissues from my local Waitrose in Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire. I have recently been told that they have ceased stocking them. Is this the case?

    • Madeleine Graham said:

      Hi Diane, no reason for them to stop stocking! They are currently selling the Safe to Flush moist tissues in Chandler’s Ford Waitrose as of today (02/01/2019). Please do get in touch with us directly if you’re having an issues buying them.

    Hi, Can I have the technical information of the test that were carried out in your products?

    Thanks in advance

    Is the plastic packet they are packaged in recycable?

    • Natracare said:

      Yes! It’s made from BPA-free recyclable plastic. This is so the moisture of the tissue can be maintained and no mould will grow.
