As the parent or caretaker of a little one, you want what’s best for your babe. From the food they eat, the toys they play with, and the diapers they wear, there’s a lot to consider to keep your baby happy and healthy. The same goes for their baby wipes.
If you’re not sure what baby wipes to use on your little one, this guide can help.
Here are 6 things to consider when shopping for baby wipes so you can find the best option for you.
Let’s take a closer look at what you need to know below!
The first thing you should look for on the baby wipe label is a certification. When baby wipes are certified by certain organizations, you can rest assured you’re using a safe, clean product. What’s better than being certified by one of these trusted organizations? Being certified by four of them!
Here’s what you need to look for and what each certification means.
EWG regulates the ingredients and manufacturing quality of products. They outline various chemicals, hazardous ingredients, toxins, and allergens in products, food, and even water. Being EWG certified not only means the product is considered safe, but it’s backed by the organization as well.
FCS is responsible for ensuring manufacturers use safe means of harvesting their ingredients.
The National Eczema Association ensures that products are safe for us to use. This is especially important when it comes to our littles.
Tuv is a foundation based in Vienna that regulates the general safety of ingredients, production, and quality of different products.
Finding the right certifications is a great way to find baby wipes worth considering.
In addition to finding baby wipes that are certified by reputable companies, look for wipes that are plant-based. Other types of wipes can take years to decompose and lead to a range of environmental consequences. Look for 100% Plant-based wipes that are great for your baby and for the planet.
When it comes to baby wipes, ingredients matter. Many baby wipe options are made with harsh ingredients, additives, synthetics, and harmful preservatives that aren’t the best for your little one. It’s important to check the ingredient label when shopping for baby wipes so you can know exactly what’s going on your baby’s skin.
When scanning the ingredient list, here are a few things to look for. First, look for simplicity. Look for ingredients you recognize, can understand, and can pronounce.
For instance, take a look at all the ingredient present in our baby wipes:
The skincare ingredient Vitamin E, a naturally occurring compound that supports skin.
The skincare ingredient Glycerin, a naturally occurring hydrating skin care ingredient.
A gentle preservative to ensure safety known as Citric Acid
Sodium Benzolate, another organic preservative in alcohol form that’s found in fruits and teas. This ingredient helps prevent microbial growth in products, extending the shelf life.
Hydroxyacetophenone, an anti-irritant, antioxidant, and natural preservative.
This is an excellent way to find the best ingredients and the best baby wipes.
It’s no secret that babies poop–a lot. When shopping for baby wipes, you want to find options that can handle the poop without endlessly wiping. If you have to use more than two wipes, you probably need to start shopping for a different wipe.
Our wipes are 20% larger than the alternatives! This means one wipe is all you need. Say goodbye to endlessly wiping and hello to more time snuggling and gigging with your babe.
Plastic finds its way into many different products, foods, and even water. Microplastics have no business being in baby wipes, so it’s important to look for baby wipes that are plastic-free.
Instead, look for baby wipes that are made with plant materials, such as VEOCEL™ Lyocell, a 100% plant-based fiber that comes straight from nature. Not only is this a more sustainable option, but it’s better for your baby’s skin, too.
It’s also a good idea to check a brand’s toxicity report to see their ingredients and how safe the product is for your little one’s skin. After all, you have a right to know what’s in your little one’s products. A toxicity report breaks this down in easy to understand terms so you can make informed decisions about what to use on your babe.
Having the right wipes to use for your little one can make a big difference in making big messes easier to clean up. Babies are messy, but having the right tools can help you be prepared and make clean up as easy as possible.
With no plastic, harsh chemicals or toxins, harmful ingredients, and a size designed to get everything in one wipe, you can give your baby the best.
