CLAIMS

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. A disposable absorbent article comprising:

a. an apertured nonwoven topsheet having a body surface and an opposing garment surface; b. a backsheet;

c. an absorbent core disposed between said topsheet and said backsheet;

d. a surface modifying composition disposed on said body surface of said topsheet, said composition comprising hydrophobic particles and a hydrophobic binder in a ratio of binder to particles of 4:1 to 1:4, and wherein, post insult, said article has a Topsheet Stain Area is less than 30 mm2.

2. The disposable absorbent article of claim 1 wherein the ratio of binder to particles is from 2:1 to 1:2.

3. The disposable absorbent article of claim 2 wherein the ratio of binder to particles is 1:1.

4. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 3, wherein said apertured nonwoven topsheet comprises a constituent material that is hydrophobic.

5. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 3, wherein said apertured nonwoven topsheet comprises a constituent material that is hydrophilic.

6. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 5, wherein said topsheet exhibits a Fiber Roughness of 1 μιη to 3.5 μιη.

7. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 6, wherein said surface modifying composition is coated in an amount of 0.1 gsm to 3 gsm on one or more of a front, central, and rear portion of said body surface of said topsheet.

8. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 7, wherein the hydrophobic particles are selected from the group consisting of hydrophobically modified silicas, modified polyacrylates, polymethacrylates, acrylate-vinylacetate copolymers, styrene acrylic copolymers, carboxylated styrene butadiene copolymers, and combinations thereof.

9. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 8, wherein the hydrophobic binder is selected from the group consisting of hydrophobic silicones, hydrophobic amino silicones, dimethylsilicones, hydrophobic triglycerides, soy waxes, polyols, and combinations thereof.

10. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 9, wherein said topsheet exhibits an average % effective area of less than or equal to 20%.

11. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 10, wherein said body surface has an effective aperture area of less than 3.5 mm2.

12. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 11, wherein said body surface has an effective aperture area of greater than 1.8 mm2.

13. The disposable absorbent article of any of claims 1 to 12, wherein the article is selected from the group consisting of a sanitary napkin, a pantiliner, a diaper, a pant, and an incontinence pad.
