Our Story

Product Pioneers, Industry Experts

It starts and ends with the consumer. For over 35 years, we’ve dedicated ourselves to creating meaningful solutions for adults with incontinence. We want our consumers to sleep comfortably through the night, to maintain healthy skin and to have discretion and dignity.

Launched in 1980, Attends was the first body-worn disposable brief to be marketed and sold in North America. As the pioneer in the product category, Attends helped to remove some of the negative stigma associated with incontinence, leading the way towards making the topic more mainstream.

Today, the Attends product line is manufactured in the Personal Care division of Domtar, a global company with the manufacturing flexibility and the domain expertise to innovate at a world-class level.

We develop products from start to finish, with hundreds of people involved in the process of turning consumer needs into unique personal care solutions.

We conduct scientific research, find the best materials on the market, design proprietary features and run laboratory testing and clinical trials, all with the goal of giving consumers reliable protection to live life with confidence.

Attends offers diverse products to fit the lifestyles and needs of a wide range of individuals – all ages, activity levels and stages of incontinence.
