There are so many brands available.. which baby wipes are toxin free? You may be a first time mom building your baby registry, or maybe you’re looking to swap out your current brand for a safer option.
First, we’re going to take a look at common ingredients you want to keep an eye out for when buying baby wipes (and really ALL products for ALL members of your family.) Then, I’ll share a list of brands I avoid, as well as a list of clean options. Let’s dive in!
I was actually surprised to see baby wipe ingredients improving since I first became a mom about 5 years ago. That means they are listening to us! Remember ladies, we vote with our dollars! If we stop buying these products they will see the demand for safe options.
But I did see many that still missed the mark.
Wipe Ingredients To Avoid:
⛔Petroleum based ingredients
⛔Formaldehyde releasing ingredients

➡️ Worth mentioning.. safe preservatives you may hear about that I personally am comfortable using topically…sodium benzoate and benzyl alcohol. You can decide if you would like to avoid them.
