    Durian-Based Wet Wipes

    Durian-Based Wet Wipes

    Singapore-based med-tech start-up N&E Innovations uses specific parts from ground durian husks to create wet wipes.

    Durian is arguably the most prized of all produce in Southeast Asia and these C2+ wet wipes help to make the most of an abundant material. These wet wipes help to repurpose a part of a popular fruit that often goes to waste. Didi Gan, founder of N&E Innovations, says “out of the 744m food waste generated annually in Singapore, around 12m is completely durian husk. Around 60% of a durian gets thrown away while we consume the flesh, usually around 40% of the fruit.”

    To create these C2+ wet wipes, N&E Innovations grinds and blends the durian husks, then boils them and extracts certain parts.Singapore-based med-tech start-up N&E Innovations uses specific parts from ground durian husks to create wet wipes.
