Incredibly soft to the touch and highly absorbent, supersoft foams are ideal for skin contact applications such as cosmetic and medical applications where non-irritant, soft and hydrophilic properties are of paramount importance.
As the leading UK-based engineering-biased supersoft foam supplier, at Technical Foam Services we convert an expansive range of these specialised foams to offer high performance products that are strong, yet extremely gentle on the skin.
The ideal material for medical applications, we produce supersoft hydrophilic foams in a range of densities and grades, to provide superior dressing and support solutions. We supply products across a wide spectrum of medical applications, which include:
- Dressings and negative pressure wound care
- Splints and supports
- Pads and protective equipment
Completely breathable, non-toxic, flake and peel resistant, non-linting and non-adhering, supersoft foams provide an unequivocal hydrophilic performance, while also offering support, protection and encouraging wound healing. We also produce many composite forms as well as solutions with additional anti-microbial and anti-fungal active ingredients.
Manufacturing foam products for medical applications is a highly specialised field as there are many factors to consider, but as an established supplier, we have all the necessary procedures in place for manufacturing and handling medical grade foams including a written protocol and a long-established relationship with an accredited sterilisation provider. We can even deliver supersoft foams already packaged, thus providing a truly one-stop service.
Supersoft foams come into their element in the cosmetic sector, where their unrivalled softness and hydrophilic properties provide the perfect material for skin contact on the delicate facial area.
Much more resilient than other PU alternatives, our supersoft foams are 100% latex-free, completely odourless and non-crumbling. Furthermore, their softness reduces friction and drag on the skin for flawless liquid, solid or powder make-up and cosmetics application and removal.
All of our supersoft cosmetic foams are washable and re-usable, which means they are not only highly suitable in terms of performance they are also extremely cost-effective.
In addition to standard supersoft applicators and removal pads, we can also manufacture fragrance and product release solutions for a huge variety of cosmetic products ranging from soap-filled sponges to moisturisers and make-up.
