From design to manufacturing, Mapelsa products are developed in Barcelona. We are one of the few companies in the world that manufactures 100% organic cotton pads thanks to our patented technology. We undergo internal and external controls to ensure the quality of our products and their compatibility with users. Our design department is able to adapt to requests for customizing of our products through a new brand. The wrappers (individual wrapping bag) (PLA) are customizable with up to four colors.

Raw materials

At Mapelsa we manufacture all our products with raw materials grown in environments and land free of pesticides, insecticides and chemical fertilizers. With this commitment we can offer our customers a hypoallergenic and toxic-free option that, in turn, provides fair working conditions for farmers. We have a traceability system backed by the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certificate that guarantees the quality of our products and encourages a cultivation of non-genetically modified and organic products.

Research and Development

This department is divided into 2 areas: research area and product development area + technological processes. We work closely with laboratories across Europe to incorporate the most advanced and sustainable technology into our products, available to our clients. Our research focuses on product refinement and the development of new ways to meet the demands of our market. For this reason, we investigate new, healthier supply chains and innovative technologies capable of promoting the physical well-being of clients, complying with the standards of protection and preservation of the environment. An example is biodegradable PLA (vegetable foil), which allows us to manufacture a higher quality product, guaranteeing functionality and reducing energy consumption by up to 65%.

100% organic cotton

The use of cotton as a raw material allows us to offer great quality in our products. Cotton is a material made of high resistance fibers. These fibers, apart from their high absorption potential, give a great softness to this material and prevent excessive contact as well as possible adhesions to the skin. For this reason, constant perspiration and a feeling of freshness are maintained.

CELLULOSE

Cellulose is an organic compound made up of β-glucose. It is the most abundant molecule on Earth and is part of the structural tissues of plants. Its fibers make it an ideal material to form part of the nuclei of our most absorbent compresses. The cellulose used in the manufacture of many tissues comes from recycling this material and may contain traces of toxic chemical compounds that could be absorbed through the skin. For this reason, at Mapelsa we only use virgin cellulose from sustainable forests to ensure its purity and preserve its properties. Cellulose bleaching is completely chlorine free.

BAMBOO

Bamboo is a fast growing plant with low water requirements. Its properties make it a 100% biodegradable raw material and ideal to give our products more absorption. It is a material that is respectful of sensitive skin, non-irritating, hypoallergenic and antibacterial. Its porosity allows the perspiration of the tissues and the non-accumulation of odor.
