How WaterWipes were 'born'

“When our first daughter was born, she suffered from sensitive skin and developed bad nappy rash.  I wanted to find out why, so I took a look at the ingredients in the baby wipes we were using. I was shocked to learn just how many chemicals were in them.

I thought there had to be a better way so I set about creating a purer, natural and safe alternative.  Many years later and after a lot of hard work, testing, and scientific research, the perfect baby wipes, WaterWipes were born.  As pure and gentle as cotton wool and water but as convenient as a baby wipe. Every day, in every corner of the world, new mums and dads are discovering the benefits of chemical-free, gentle and safe WaterWipes for their baby’s skin. I hope you like them too”

What are WaterWipes?

WaterWipes are the world’s purest baby wipes. Made with 99.9% purified water and just a drop of fruit extract, they offer all the benefits of cotton wool and cooled boiled water as recommended by midwives, but in a convenient pack. WaterWipes are suitable to use on newborns and can help avoid nappy rash as they are non-irritating. They are also large and extra soft, strong and absorbent with a fresh non-greasy feel.

Providing the gentlest cleaning of baby’s skin, WaterWipes are even safe for premature babies and are favoured by clinical professionals in hospitals and neonatal units around the world.

WaterWipes are the only baby wipes approved by Allergy UK and awarded the USA National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance and are also a sponsor of the Eczema Association Australasia. WaterWipes is also a proud supporter of Australian premature baby charity, Miracle Babies.
