Absorbent Article Having Improved Surface Properties

May 6, 2008

Patented is an absorbent article for maintaining mucous membranes’ moistness. The absorbent article comprises a liquid-pervious user-facing first side including a first portion consisting of a hydrophobic material. A second portion forms a wetting region adapted to be positioned adjacent the mucous membranes of the user to define the region of the first side to first be wetted by body fluid emitted to the article. A second side opposite the first side includes a liquid-impervious surface layer. An absorbent body is located between the first and second sides. The second portion consists of hydrophilic absorbent material that is adapted to retain moisture. An outer edge of the second portion is bordered by the hydrophobic material of the first portion. An extent of the second portion is smaller than an extent of the absorbent body. The second portion is hump-shaped so as to project past the first portion in the direction of a user.
