Puncture test score
We assess the strength of the toilet paper by testing its resistance to puncturing. In this test a higher force is the most desirable result, meaning your finger is less likely to go through the paper.
enter value/s in increments of i between 45 and 90
Disintegration test score
We time how quickly the toilet paper disintegrates. The faster the better - you want your toilet paper to break up quickly as it moves through sewage, making it less likely to block pipes. The quickest takes just over a minute to disintegrate while the longest takes just over 16 minutes to disintegrate.

Toilet paper generally ranges from two-ply to four-ply. This simply refers to the number of layers of paper used. Generally the higher the ply count, the thicker, softer, stronger and more absorbent the toilet paper should be.
Bleaching (chlorine free) claims
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international, non-profit organisation that promotes responsible forest management. It achieves this by setting standards on forest products with a certification process. You'll find the FSC tree-tick logo on many toilet paper packs, but if you take a closer look at the fine print you'll notice there are three classifications to the label – FSC Mix, FSC Recycled, FSC 100%.
The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international organisation that works to promote sustainable forest management.
Suitable for all toilet systems
