Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0147455A1] An absorbent article for containing biological fluids that has a skin contacting surface with a reduced affinity for skin irritants is described. The absorbent article may include a liquid permeable bodyside liner that defines a bodyfacing surface; a backsheet located in facing relation to the bodyside liner; and an absorbent body located between the bodyside liner and the backsheet. The affinity between the bodyside liner and skin irritants found in the biological fluids is less than an affinity between the absorbent body and the skin irritants such that the skin irritants are drawn away from the skin of the wearer.
