Baby wipes are specially used for babies. Compared with wipes for adults, baby wipes have relatively high requirements, because the baby's skin is very delicate and prone to allergies. Baby wipes are divided into ordinary wipes and special wipes for hand and mouth. Ordinary baby wipes are usually used to wipe the baby's butt, and special wipes for hand and mouth are used to wipe the baby's mouth and hands.
The function of alcohol in wet wipes is mainly to sterilize, but alcohol is volatile, and it is easy to cause moisture loss on the surface of skin after wiping. Besides, it feels tight and dry, causing skin discomfort, so it is not suitable for babies.
Fragrance and alcohol are both considered to be easily irritating ingredients, so products with aromatic odors should also be selected according to consumers' preferences, but the added fragrance ingredients increase the risk of skin allergies. Therefore, baby products should be natural and pure. In this logic, many brands of wet wipes are clearly marked "no alcohol and fragrance added".
The purpose of preservatives is to protect the product from microbial contamination and prolong the shelf life and useful life of the product. However, improper use of preservatives can lead to allergic dermatitis. Next to fragrances, preservatives are the second most common cause of skin allergy and skin irritation.
Fluorescent agents should also not be added in wet wipes. If the cotton wipes contain fluorescent agents, they should be added during the processing of the non-woven fabrics, which are also unfavorable to the baby's skin.
The main ingredient of baby wipes is water. This water must be treated pure water, otherwise the bacteria in the water will multiply on the wipes, which is not good for the baby's skin and health. The quality control of big brands in pure water is still relatively guaranteed. In this field, wipes from small manufacturers may contain unsafe and dirty water.
Baby wipes are divided into different types according to their functions. They can be divided into disinfectant wipes and wipes for hand and mouth. They have disinfection and antibacterial functions. Different brands of wipes have different prices and different comfort levels for babies. They can be purchased according to different usages.
