WaterWipes was created by a father, inspired by a daughter. Our founder developed WaterWipes after his newborn suffered from bad diaper rash, and he realized skin this pure needs care that’s just as pure. So, he created the world’s purest wipes to help protect his child and help other parents do the same for theirs. Now families around the world trust pure and simple WaterWipes for all kinds of messes. These plastic-free wipes are gentle on the planet, and they’re clinically proven to be kind on baby’s skin, giving parents the confidence to help protect their children in the purest way possible.

Q: New label includes (contains trace of benzalkonium chloride). Why have you added a potentially toxic ingredient. I believe bc is banned in Europe. Used WW in past and bc wasn't listed.
A: We can reassure you that the only thing we have changed is removing the plastic from the wipe material. The old material was made using polyester (plastic) and viscose, the new material is now 100% viscose. We have not changed or introduced anything new to the formulation, we use the same water, purified in the same way, with the same drop of fruit extract we have used since WaterWipes were first created, that is including the trace listed on the back of every pack before and after the change in material. Benzalkonium Chloride is deemed safe by the EU Cosmetics Regulation at levels of 0.1% (EC 1223/2009). As our product contains a fraction of this maximum limit, within the fruit extract which makes up for 0.1% of our product, it is safe for newborn babies and furthermore is fully compliant with the regulations.

Q: What is the shelf life of unopened wipes? I am planning to stock up for baby's arrival
A: WaterWipes carry a 24 month shelf life. Every retailer will have different stock with different expiry dates, so we would recommend looking at these in store before purchasing or ordering online closer to your due date. Congratulations too from us here at WaterWipes.submitted byWaterWipes Team - 7 months agoBrand expert
Q: hello my latest batch has a faint chemical odor - is this normal?
A: We updated our wipe material to 100% viscose, which is a renewable, plant-based material. Some folks have noticed the natural smell of the material, as we don’t add any artificial fragrances or ingredients to mask the natural smells in our product. The smell experienced is likely a combination of the wipe material, the formulation (water and a drop of fruit extract) and the manufacturing process. Each pack of WaterWipes is hermetically sealed, which means it is completely airtight, and as a result smell is strongest upon initial opening of the pack.submitted byWaterWipes Team - 1 year agoBrand expert
