Do you know what cellulose is?

Cellulose is a natural, biodegradable fiber extracted from trees. It’s used for the production of toilet paper, kitchen towels and handkerchiefs.

Depending on the origin, it may have different properties. Cellulose obtained from deciduous trees (for example beech, eucalyptus) has shorter fibers and provides softness to the final product. Cellulose from coniferous trees, which has longer fibers, provides the essential strength. Therefore, various types of cellulose mixed in different proportions are used in the production of hygienic products.
