An ageing population means an increase in demand for adult diapers and pants but FairPrice Housebrand has got any incontinence needs covered.

These are designed not only for the elderly with medical conditions, but also to be used in situations when access to a toilet is unavailable or for those who not permitted to leave their posts for any reason.

FairPrice Housebrand adult diapers ($11) have a super dry-fast dual core with an embossed surface, superbly absorbing liquid while keeping skin dry.

A fast-dry acquisition distribution layer also has excellent liquid retention that prevents leakage for maximum protection.

It comes with a leakage barrier-the combination of advanced technology super-absorbent core design and leak guards forms a total absorbency system that significantly reduces leakage.

There is a wider frontal tape for ease of refastening to provide a comfortable fit, as well as a wetness indicator that fades in colour as the diaper gets wet.

The diapers are unisex and come in two sizes - medium (28-inch to 45-inch, waist/hip) and large (43-inch to 60-inch, waist/hip).

FairPrice is also offering adult diaper pants ($11.40).

These feature a super absorbent core allowing for quick absorption and retention of liquid that keeps skin dry, and effective leakage protection via a standing leak guard to ensure optimum leakage security.

The 360-degree elastic waistband provides a comfortable fit even on the move.

Blue elastic lines on the back of the pants make it easy for the user to determine the front and back, and it tears with minimal effort for easy removal.

These are also unisex and available in medium (23-inch to 35-inch, waist/hip) and large (31-inch to 51-inch, waist/hip).

Both FairPrice's adult diaper pants and diapers can be worn standing or in a lying position.

To maintain healthy skin conditions, a regular changing routine is recommended.
