I just received a bag of Abena Super from drugstore.com (pretty efficient; good pricing; my housemates won't second guess the purchase), and I noticed something VERY different:
The tapes are quieter when you pull them off the tab. Yes, it's true.
I haven't worn a plastic-backed disposable since the end of August, but my memory sure tells me that these suckers are a whole new adhesive! I used to CRINGE when I would pull the tapes from their original home. The noise was unmistakable. This time, they pulled smoothly off their plane; think of a fabric band-aid.
Any who, I figured I'd share and see if anyone else has experienced this. Let's see how the new adhesive holds up ... I can follow-up on that after.
