The towels evaluated in Profeco’s laboratory correspond to the brands: Alei, Always, Aurrera, Envisage!, Eres, Fiore, Intimate, Kotex, Naturella, Saba, Selena, Soriana and Stela.
The products were tested to determine their quality (performance), as well as consumer information, finishes, weight (mass), absorption capacity and speed, moisture return, pH, adhesion, characteristics and finishes.
Towels (Regular Moderate Flow) were rated as follows:
Evisage!: Very good
Alei: Very Good
Always: Very Good
Aurrera: Very Good
You’re: All right
All samples analyzed have complete the required information. The models analyzed rated as excellent because they were free of defects.
Except for the ultra-thin Kotex model with moderate-regular flow wings, which featured irregular channels and rated as very good as it does not significantly impact its overall performance.
The thinnest are Always soft ultra-thin day with wings, Always dry ultra-thin day with wings, both for moderate-regular flow, Always soft ultra-thin extra-karga night and Always dry ultra-thin extra long night, both for super abundant flow. The thickest is Always soft extra long night.
