There is widespread concern about the use of toxic substances in fabrics used next to the skin because of the negative and sometimes long-term effects on health. Unlike many incontinence products our Bed Pads, Mattress Protectors and absorbent underwear are free of chemicals and fragrances. Our Conni products are Oeko-Tex accredited and safe to use against the skin.
At Conni, we have created a proprietary blend of micro-fiber for our waterproof barrier in place of PVC due to its toxicity. For detailed information refer to Technology and Standards

How Conni works?
Conni Bed Pads are made up of a four layer system. All of these layers are laminated together to create an intimate bond which means no bubbling of the surface over time.
Comfort Layer: made from brushed polyester, with special quilting this soft layer ensures optimal comfort and reduces the risk of pressure ulcers and other conditions. The surface layer is comfortable and gentle to the skin.
Filter Layer: this layer is designed to allow fluid to be quickly absorbed.
Absorbent Layer: this layer traps and stores the fluid. It is engineered to stop the fluid coming back to the surface so that the person lying on the pad remains dry and comfortable.
Barrier Layer: made from Polyurethane Laminate (PUL), this layer is waterproof, air-permeable, and will protect your mattress from any accidents.
Why don’t you use cotton?
Cotton holds moisture at the surface which would not be suitable for absorbent products, and would be very uncomfortable for the individual.
How do i launder my Conni products?
Conni Bed Pads, Chair Pads, Undergarments and Liners can all be washed and tumble dried in temperatures up to 80°C. Simply place any product listed above into your washing machine with similar products and a good quality detergent. All of our products will also benefit from air/line drying in the sun if that option is available.
For best results, wash with WARM OR COOL water and a good quality laundry detergent. Conni Absorbent products dry quickly on the clothesline or in the tumble dryer on LOW heat. Too much heat can damage the waterproof layer.
I've noticed discoloration on my Conni Chair Pad, can i use bleach?
Please do not use chlorine based bleach or fabric softeners on any of your Conni products. These chemicals will coat and fill the hi-tech fibres and make your Conni product lose function. We find oxygen based bleach (such as Napisan), or vinegar works great for freshening up the Conni range.
Are Conni products reusable?
All Conni products are reusable. This makes all of our products cost effective and environmentally friendly.
How long will my Conni product last?
There are many variables depending on usage so it is hard to say exactly how long your Conni product will last. In general, Conni Bed and Chair Pads should last up to 350 washes if washed in a domestic washing machine and ensuring the care instructions are followed. Undergarments typically last as long as a normal pair (6 months to a year), which is dependent on the wash and care of the garments.
