About Pampers Cruisers with Dry Max
Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers with Dry Max are the brand's new high performance diapers and the biggest innovation for the Pampers brand in the last 25 years. Pampers has invented the Dry Max technology and applied it to the current Swaddlers and Cruisers core, which allows the diaper to be thinner than before. This game-changing diaper - Pampers' driest ever - helps lock wetness in for up to 12 hours and its less bulky design helps give flexibility and comfort - perfect for all babies' play. The new diaper design also helps families reduce their impact on the environment by containing 10 percent less material weight than before. In fact, if current North American Pampers Swaddler and Cruisers users switched to the new Pampers with Dry Max diaper, they could together throw away the weight of one billion less diapers every three years (based on 08/09 volume for Swaddlers/Cruisers).
Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers with Dry Max are available at mass, discount, baby specialty, grocery and eRetail stores where Pampers products are sold beginning March 15, 2010.
