A Father’s Mission

If you are a parent, you know all those amazing emotions & feelings you go through with your first baby or newborn. The excitement, the joy, the love, the fear, and even at times the anxiety. You worry about being the best parent to your baby you can possibly be. We wish the best for our children. So when your child is uncomfortable or you know something is wrong we as parents rush to resolve our baby’s issue. Within a few weeks of having our beautiful daughter, my wife and I realized that she was breaking out with diaper rashes on her skin. Like most new parents, we called our parents, our doctor and of course, we Googled What to do if my baby or newborn has a diaper rash. All three sources came back with the same answer. She was having a negative reaction to some chemical that was having direct contact with her skin. My wife and I stopped wearing perfume and cologne. We even changed our and our daughter’s lotion and laundry detergent. When we still saw no change in our daughter’s skin condition we quickly realized like most skin care product you put on your child, we needed to check out the ingredients in the baby wipes we were using. You go through tons of wipes daily and every time you use one you are applying the ingredients from the wipe to the delicate skin on your baby.  I don’t think there is another product used more than baby wipes in those first few years of your child’s life. I knew how important it was to educate myself on how to select the best organic baby wipes available. No worries. We have a list of the top organic baby wipes for 2016 and 2017. 

Baby Wipe Ingredients you should look to avoid

What my wife and I discovered early on with our daughter, was that it was best to avoid anything scented. Perfumes and most fragrances in baby wipes among other products mean that there are Phthalate (pronounced “thah-lates”). Phthalates are found in a large number of products. In personal care items such as baby wipes, they’re used to help lubricate other substances, help lotions penetrate and soften the skin, and help fragrances last longer. Many baby wipes on the market also contain suspected carcinogens like phenoxyethanol and preservatives like parabens.

Baby Wipe Ingredients not listed 

There are several other chemicals that may be included or are byproducts of the production process for some of the ingredients that go into the baby wipes.  Of course, these additional ingredients are not listed on the side of the wipes packaging.

  • Polysorbate-20, a common preservative, is often contaminated with carcinogenic 1,4-dioxane.
  • 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol (the preservative in the old Kirkland wipes, although they recently removed it) releases carcinogenic formaldehyde.
  • Tocopheryl acetate (synthetic vitamin E that’s used as a skin conditioner) is produced using hydroquinone, a skin toxicant, and potential carcinogen.

Lets recap…Ingredients you should look to keep out of your baby wipes

  • Parabens: Sometimes personal care products use parabens as a preservative. Main concern is the effect on hormone function and development.
  • Methylisothiazolinone: Also known as ‘MIT’, this is a preservative that is sometimes used in baby wipes, and is also sometimes used in personal care products like shampoos and lotions. It has come under some scrutiny from parents because it’s classified as a sensitizer, which means it could cause contact allergies when touching skin.
  • Phthalates: Fragrances sometimes use phthalates. Main concern is their potential for hormone disruption.
  • Bronopol: Has been used as a preservative in baby wipes. Bronopol is considered a formaldehyde donor, meaning under certain conditions it can break down to produce formaldehyde and cause contact allergies.
  • Dyes: Many personal care products—such as shampoos, lotions, and cosmetics—include dyes to make the product a more attractive color. Most are unnecessary synthetic ingredients.
  • Alcohol: Cleaning wipes for the kitchen and bathroom sometimes include alcohol. Alcohol drys the skin and can be irritating on delicate skin.

With all these factors in mind, here are some of the best Organic Baby Wipes:
