Biodegradable wipes are made from a variety of materials that are designed to break down into natural elements over time.
Some biodegradable wipes are made from plant-based materials, such as wood pulp or bamboo, while others are made from synthetic materials that have been formulated to be biodegradable. These synthetic materials may be made from polymer resins, such as polylactic acid (PLA), which are derived from renewable resources such as cornstarch or sugarcane.
In some cases, biodegradable wipes may be made from a combination of natural and synthetic materials.
It’s important to note that biodegradable materials do not necessarily break down at the same rate as natural materials.
The rate of biodegradation can be influenced by a number of factors, including the type of material, the conditions in which it is disposed of, and the presence of microorganisms that can facilitate the breakdown process.
