The world's first sanitary pad product with air permeability applied with new nano materials has been released. Lemon, a nano material-specialized company, held a press conference at a Seoul hotel on April 2 and released "Air Queen," a sanitary pad that is applied with the new material "Nano Membrane."
Nano Membrane is a new material with high air gaps due to its thin fiber diameter. It has a network structure of three-dimensional piles of nano fibers, which are about one-five hundredth of a person's hair in thickness. Not only is it very thin and light, but it also boasts high ventilation and water resistance.
Unlike regular sanitary pads, Air Queen offers more than 20,000 times air permeability and six times more humidity than conventional products, maintaining its freshness for a long time without smell, a company official explained.
It also applies 100 percent organic pure cotton cover to give it a comfortable fit without skin irritation. The ultra-slim design and five to seven small packing packs make it easier to carry and store.
Its price range is similar to premium products of other sanitary pad brands. Lemon will first invest about 33 billion won within the year to build six sanitary pads manufacturing lines that can produce 800 million sanitary pads a year.
It will then inject an additional 200 billion won to expand a total of 36 lines by 2024 by increasing six manufacturing lines every year.
