Our Analysis

Without any chemicals or preservatives, these unique wipes help in preventing diaper rash and are perfect for newborns and those with very sensitive skin. Made of 99.9% purified, softened water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract, WaterWipes are as gentle on baby's skin as using a cotton cloth and water. Pure, mild and soft, they are a natural, convenient, disposable alternative to using water and a washcloth. And, like other disposable wipes brands, these are void of synthetic fragrance, chemicals, and preservatives. In fact, they have been awarded a seal of approval by Allergy UK.

Because these wipes do not contain preservatives, follow the manufacturer's instructions to use within four weeks of opening the package to prevent mold growth.
