- 2-ply, 3-ply or 4-ply: The more layers a handkerchief or facial tissue has, the more resistant and softer the quality. Fewer layers, on the other hand, mean a favourable price. Franz Mensch has a suitable product for every budget.

Frequently asked questions about facial tissues and paper tissues
What is the difference between cosmetic tissues and handkerchiefs?
Cosmetic tissues and handkerchiefs are both hygiene products made of soft paper or other materials that are mainly used to clean the face or hands. Despite their similarities, there are some differences between the two products:
1. intended use: As the name suggests, cosmetic wipes are often used in the cosmetics sector. They are used, for example, to remove make-up, apply lotions or gently cleanse the skin. Handkerchiefs are more versatile. They are often used for blowing the nose, drying tears, but also for general hand hygiene.
2. texture: Cosmetic wipes are generally softer and gentler on the skin. They may also contain special additives such as aloe vera or other moisturising substances to nourish the skin during cleansing. Handkerchiefs are often slightly thicker and more tear-resistant to hold up better when blowing your nose or wiping liquids.
3. packaging: Cosmetic tissues are sold in boxes from which they can be removed individually. The boxes also serve as dispensers and storage. Handkerchiefs are available in small, space-saving packs that can be conveniently stored in your bag or car. Individual tissues can be easily removed without the need for a rigid box.
Can facial tissues be disposed of in the toilet?
No, facial tissues should not be disposed of in the toilet. They have a stronger structure than real toilet paper and do not decompose as quickly in water. This means that they can cause blockages in the waste water pipes, which can lead to serious problems and high repair costs.
Toilet paper is specially designed to dissolve quickly when it comes into contact with water so that it can be disposed of in the toilet. Cosmetic tissues, baby wipes and household tissues do not have this property and should therefore always be disposed of with household waste.
How do you use facial tissues?
Cosmetic wipes are versatile and can be used in a variety of ways to care for and cleanse the skin. Here are some tips on how to use them:
- Make-up removal: A cosmetic tissue can be soaked in a make-up remover or cleansing oil to gently remove make-up from the skin.
- Cleanse the skin: For a quick refresher between uses, cosmetic wipes can also be used without additional cleansers to remove dirt and oil from the skin.
- Wipe hands: Cosmetic tissues can be used to dry hands after washing them or when necessary.
- Refreshment: In warm weather or when travelling, facial tissues offer a quick way to freshen up and wipe away sweat.
- Blowing your nose: Cosmetic tissues are soft and gentle on the skin, making them a good option for blowing the nose, especially if the skin around the nose is irritated. However, they are usually thinner than special handkerchiefs and could tear more quickly under heavy use.
- Cosmetic wipes are a gentle alternative for babies and small children to clean their face and hands.
How are facial tissues made?
The production of cosmetic tissues and cellulose handkerchiefs is a meticulous process that involves various steps to obtain a soft, absorbent and skin-friendly product. Here is a general overview of the manufacturing process:
1. The main raw materials for cosmetic tissues are cellulose from plant parts such as wood. The pulp is purchased in large quantities and prepared for processing.
2. The pulp is dissolved in water and cleaned to remove impurities and foreign materials. This produces a pulp suspension.
3. In order to process the pulp into white paper, it is bleached. This can be done with chlorine, oxygen or other chemicals.
4. The pulp suspension is placed on a sieve through which the water can run off, while the pulp remains as a thin layer. Additional water is removed by press rollers and the paper is preformed.
5. The still damp paper is passed through large drying drums to remove the residual moisture. At the end of this step, the paper is firm and dry.
6.The paper is embossed to give the cloths their characteristic structure and increase their absorbency. It is then cut into the desired sizes and shapes.
Regular quality checks are carried out throughout the manufacturing process to ensure that the cosmetic tissues meet the standards and requirements. This careful manufacturing process results in cosmetic tissues and handkerchiefs that are soft and absorbent as well as hygienic and skin-friendly.
What bin should used tissues go in?
Used tissues belong in the residual waste. Due to their nature and the fact that they can be contaminated with germs and bacteria, they are not suitable for the paper or organic waste bin. Disposal via the toilet should also be avoided, as tissues do not disintegrate as quickly as toilet paper and can therefore cause blockages in the waste water pipes. It is important to dispose of used tissues immediately to prevent the further spread of germs. It is best to use a bin with a lid to maintain hygiene. After disposing of tissues, hands should be washed thoroughly to avoid the possible transmission of pathogens.
