[Complete title, which runs across
the right-hand page] The secrets
behind Mimosept Mini's success
1. Mimosept Mini is a webbed
sanitary napkin consisting of a soft
fiber layer that quickly soaks up
liquid in the pads dispersing layer.
Mini is soft like cotton wadding.
Because the liquid is spread around
in the pad the surface and sides
remain dry and soft.
2. Mimosept sits by itself in
everyday panties. The Mini pad is
put right into the panties and sits
securely because a thin layer of
foam on the pad's underside holds it
securely in place. The foam layer
next to clothing doesn't slip.
