The crystals and gel are super-absorbent materials that offer significant benefits: drawing wetness away from baby's skin, as well as helping to keep baby's skin healthy. In Huggies® diapers, super-absorbent material is mixed with the diaper padding, turning liquid into a gel to help prevent leakage. You may occasionally see small beads of gel on the diaper or on your baby, but the gel is nontoxic and not harmful. The safety of super-absorbent material has been proven in over 450 consumer safety tests studying every which way a person could come in contact with it.

The inside absorbent padding on Huggies® diapers is made of a fluffy, paperlike material called wood cellulose fiber and a super-absorbent material called polyacrylate. Other materials used include polypropylene, polyester, and polyethylene -- all synthetic materials designed to enhance the fit of the diaper and help stop leaks. The elastic strands in all Huggies diapers are made of synthetic rubber for a snug but gentle fit for baby.

While there have been some exaggerated reports on the topic of diapers in landfills, the truth is that disposable diapers account for less than 1.5% (1) of the waste placed annually in landfills in the United States. And the makers of Huggies® diapers are continually striving to do our part in making that impact less and less. 1US EPA "Municipal Solid Waste Generation, Recycling, and Disposal in the United States: Facts and Figures for 2006"

Not really. Current landfill sites are operated as sealed environments with restricted air and water flow. Operating a landfill in this way allows the capture of methane gas that can be converted to energy. Kimberly-Clark (makers of Huggies® diapers) is currently using methane from a landfill at our Beech Island Manufacturing Facility. This sealed landfill environment is how consumer waste such as disposable diapers is currently disposed of in the United States (1). Huggies Brand will continue to design products that are compatible with customary disposal methods; as disposal technologies change, Huggies diapers will change.
