Preferred Abstract (Original): 
A treatment composition for producing acquisition fluff pulp, the treatment composition being a mixture of a cross-linking agent and a modifying agent. The cross-linking agent may be a polycarboxylic acid. The modifying agent may be a material that is water soluble non-anionic, non-polymeric material, and can function as debonder and plasticizer. A method of producing acquisition fluff pulp using the treatment composition involves treating a cellulosic base fiber with a treatment composition solution to impregnate the fiber with the treatment composition, and then drying and curing the impregnated fiber. The resultant acquisition fluff pulp may be utilized in an acquisition layer and/or an absorbent core of an absorbent article intended for body waste management.
