Abstract (en)

The present invention relates to wet wipes (1) for use in wiping surfaces in the home and in industry, in addition to their use on the human body such as for baby wipes, make-up removal and other skin care applications. The wet wipes (1) are provided with an improved stacking configuration which comprises the insertion of at least one anti evaporation layer (24) within the stack to reduce the evaporation of the volatile components of the lotion formulation from the stack, particularly once the packaging has been opened. <IMAGE>
