The history

Under the influence of the COVID-19 epidemic, there has been a wave of panic about buying toilet paper. This panic is reasonable. If we know how our ancestors solved the problem of wiping their buttocks, we will surely be very grateful and cherished today’s soft, comfortable and clean toilet paper.

About a million years ago, Humans first wiped their butts with stones.

Before paper came out, the cleaning materials people used after going to the toilet included water, cloth, leaves, corn on the cob, and bamboo chips.

The modern crepe toilet paper was born in America.

The last big change to toilet paper came in the 1990s when the Brits first introduced non-woven wipes to wipe their buttocks.

  • Whiteness is naturally white, very pleasing to the eye, not white, very clean and dazzling.
  • The packaging indicates that the raw material is [virgin wood pulp] or [raw wood pulp], and the content is 100%.
