How can Fluus be absorbent and flushable?

Enter Flushtec®, an innovative technology. Flushtec® makes our pads 15% more absorbent than the market leader, yet it only breaks down when you flush. That’s because of the motion and the amount of water (100x more liquid than the average period).

What exactly is Flushtec®?

Flushtec® is the technology that makes our pads fully flushable. We use plant fibres and natural adhesives, which makes Fluus pads strong and absorbent when you wear them, but 100% biodegradable when you flush them down the toilet.

Is it really flushable?

Yes, but don’t just take our word for it. We’ve got proof - the WIS 4-02-06 certificate if you want to get technical. It’s an independent, internationally-recognised certificate that gives manufacturers and consumers the confidence that our products are fit for purpose. 

What are Fluus pads made of?

There are three parts to our pad:

1. Our super-soft topsheet is made of cellulose plant fibres
2. Patent-pending absorbent core and barrier are made from biodegradable polymers and plant fibres.

3. Bottom sheet is made from plant fibres (no more plastic against your skin), and we use a non-toxic, plastic-free adhesive derived from tree sap.

How does the pad break down?

The motion of water breaks the pad down, pulling the layers apart and loosening the plant fibres as it moves through the pipes. The pad is then treated along with toilet paper and sewage breaking down, regenerating into clean water, renewable energy and fertiliser at your local water treatment centre. Most period waste will hang around in landfill for over 500 years. Our pad is gone in a flush.

Are Fluus pads safe for oceans and aquatic life?

Yes. They are microplastic free and completely non toxic, so will never pollute waterways or harm aquatic life.

Can I also throw Fluus pads in the bin?

We’d rather you didn’t. Fluus pads are designed to break down through flushing, and so a bin may not provide the right conditions for them to fully biodegrade. By flushing them, you know they will break down into clean water, renewable energy and fertiliser at your local water treatment centre. Organic and biodegradable alternatives often end up at landfill, waterways or incineration. Fluus pads are designed and tested to break down through flushing. There is currently no sustainable way to dispose of regular-period products. Using Fluus halves the carbon footprint of your pads.

Are Fluus pads suitable for people with sensitive skin?

Absolutely. The pad itself is made from natural plant fibers with no added fragrances, harmful chemicals or artificial materials. We’ve had incredible feedback from user trials and customers, which you can read on our website.

Are the pads suitable for vegans and vegetarians?

Yes. There are no animal products in Fluus and we never test on animals.

How often should I change my pad?

As per recommendation by the NHS, we recommend changing every 4-6 hours.
