What is the difference between a booster and a personal care pad?

Booster pads have a flow-through design that allows the pad to fill to capacity first and then pass additional fluid to the host (primary) garment. Booster pads are placed inside any disposable undergarment with a moisture proof backing. A Personal Care pad has a moisture proof backing and is meant to be worn in regular underwear. It should not be used as a liner inside a host garment, as the moisture proof backing would not allow the fluid to flow through, it will actually cause it to run out of the product and leak.

Health

Overflow incontinence is involuntary urination. The bladder muscles are unable to contain urine under pressure and feel like the bladder is unable to be emptied completely.

No. Cutting back on fluid intake can lead to dehydration, constipation and irritation of the bladder. It is true that certain types of fluids should be avoided such as alcohol and caffeine that irritate the bladder.

Products

No, doubling up on products that contain a moisture barrier will not increase absorption. Briefs, disposable underwear and pads/ liners are typically designed with a moisture proof backing that stops the urine from passing through. This approach to adding more capacity or addressing leakage concerns only works if the second product is a “flow-through” design with no moisture proof backing.

Latex-Free means that the product is not made from natural rubber (latex) or doesn’t contain any natural rubber.
