Van Houtum


For more than 75 years, Van Houtum has supplied hygienic paper and innovative solutions for better toilet hygiene in combination with exceptional environmental performance. We produce the most environmentally friendly toilet paper in the world, new generation of Cradle to Cradle Certified products, under the brand name Satino Black. The production of most hygienic paper and soap involves the addition of numerous chemicals. All of these chemicals have been analyzed in detail in collaboration with the EPEA, a well-known international scientific institute in Germany, not only to identify the presence of pollutants but also to determine their bio-degradability. All the substances that did not comply with strict requirements have been replaced by natural and bio-degradable ingredients. As a result, Satino Black hygienic paper and soap are suitable for the biological cycle.
