Abstract

The absorbent article has a water-impermeable outer layer (14), a water-permeable inner layer (18) and a first absorbent inlay (28) located next to the water-permeable inner layer (18). The first absorbent inlay (28) comprises a fibrous velvety material. A second absorbent inlay (30) is arranged between the first absorbent inlay (28) and the water-impermeable outer layer (14). This second inlay (30) comprises a fibrous velvety material having embossed sites (50) extending through the greater part of the second inlay (30). The uncompressed areas (52) lie next to the embossed sites (50). The fibre distances of the embossed sites (50) are considerably smaller than the average fibre distances in the first inlay (28). The embossed sites (50) thus quickly lead body fluids to more remote parts in the second inlay (30) in such a way that the body fluid is retained in regions remote from the inner layer (18). The absorbent article is especially suitable for nappies, sanitary towels and clinical substrates. <IMAGE>
