An adult diaper, also known as adult nappy, is a type of underwear worn by adults so as to urinate or defecate without using a toilet. It absorbs or contains the waste and prevents soiling of the outer clothing.

Some manufacturers enhance the quality of the inner lining with vitamin E, aloe vera and other skin-friendly compounds. These diapers can be indispensable for adults with conditions like mobility impairment, incontinence or severe diarrhea.
