Are Scotties®' products hypoallergenic?
Yes, Scotties products are both hypoallergenic and dermatologist approved.
What do the terms hypoallergenic and dermatologist approved mean?
Hypoallergenic is a scientific term used to describe a product that has been tested in a controlled environment and has little likelihood of causing an allergic response. During such tests, a group of individuals are exposed to the product (for a facial tissue, a swatch of the product is rubbed on a section of their skin, under controlled conditions) and they are monitored for allergic reactions.
Based on these tests (we use an independent clinical facility to conduct the tests), Scotties facial tissue has been determined to be hypoallergenic. Further, we have independent medical doctors who are specialists in skin-related topics oversee the clinical testing and confirm both the test results and hypoallergenic designation.
Please note, however, that consumers with known allergies or those who are sensitive to things which most others do not find irritating can still experience a reaction to a hypoallergenic product.
Why do facial tissues have some dust/lint in the carton?
Dust is a normal by-product of the tissue manufacturing process. At Scotties, we strive to remove as much tissue dust as possible from our tissues prior to the final folding and packaging phases. During unbranded consumer testing, Scotties facial tissues are consistently given high marks for having low levels of dust/lint during dispensing.
Are Scotties cartons made from recycled fibre?
Yes, all Scotties cartons are made using 100% recycled fibre and are also fully recyclable where community programs exist.
What is Scotties EnviroCare™?
Scotties EnviroCare™ is Canada's first and only premium quality facial tissue made with 100% recycled fibre, making it an environmentally conscious choice. With 10% more sheets than regular Scotties, EnviroCare tissues help to reduce packaging waste. They're also hypoallergenic and dermatologist approved.

What are Scotties Lotion tissues?
