REGAL CONTINENCE PRODUCT RANGE

Regal continence products are manufactured with high quality materials sourced from the USA, Canada and Japan and comprise of up to four layers of non-woven, breathable material, super absorbent polymers (SAP) and fluff pulp.

JS Hayes exclusively uses Sumitomo Seika SAP who was and still is the pioneers in the global development of SAP for use in incontinence products. The Regal Continence Range uses the AB Series of SAP from Sumitomo Seika. The AB Series acts on various types of bacteria to arrest enzyme development and activity. As a result, it is possible to suppress further growth of bacteria. This reduction of bacteria growth also helps to keep skin cleaner and healthier, helping to combat the results of Incontinence Associated Dermatitis.

The fluff pulp used is sourced from US and Canadian suppliers who are members of associations such as the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Standard (SFI), American Tree Farm System (ATFS), Continuing Forestry Education (CFE) and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) all endorsed by the international Program of Forest Certification (PEFC).
