Daio Paper established the Chinese unit in 2012 and opened a factory in Nantong in 2013 to make Goo.n regular disposable diapers as well as a premium version called Goo.n angel. The company's latest launch is Goo.n light plume, which uses a proprietary material that feels softer on the skin. This diaper is 30% more breathable than earlier products and less likely to become damp, even after extended wear.
Priced between $30 and $33, the ultra premium diaper is about 50-100% more expensive than other Daio diapers and is in the highest price range of China's disposable diaper market.
Daio also plans to enter the Chinese e-commerce market. About 40% of Chinese diapers are sold online.
