Have you looked at the list of ingredients on a package of baby wipes lately? I have, and do not like what I have read. Baby bums are the most sensitive parts on their body and yet, we clean them multiple times a day with wipes that contains ingredients that can be harmful and irritating to their bum.

Ingredient List for a Brand of Natural Baby Wipes

Aqua, Gluconolactone, Glycerin, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Propylene Glycol, Decyl Glucoside, Citric Acid, Calcium Gluconate, Chamomilla Recuita Flower extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice.

While not horrible, and if I was in a bind I would probably reach for this brand, I still think the ingredients could be better. They are still using Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate and a non-organic aloe juice which can always have a risk of paraben preservation from the distributor and the citric acid could be from a GMO source.  I am still very leery of propylene glycol degrading into the environment and actually being safe. Apparently, it has a fast rate of degradation and a “low toxicity” to animal and sea life. However, is that good enough for you? Not sure. Seems pretty unnecessary for a baby wipe.

Have you thought of making your own baby wipes? How to make homemade baby wipes is extremely easy and cost effective. I love to use Earth Mama Angel Baby castile soap as the cleaning agent; raw apple cider vinegar and salt to act as a preservative; rosehip seed oil to sooth and soften skin; lavender and tea tree essential oils are known to maintain the appearance of healthy, and toned skin; and boiled water (to help prevent mold). Doesn’t this ingredient list sound much better than the one above? That is what I thought. Now pair this safe baby wipe solution with these soft hemp cloths (love these ones!!) and you have yourself the perfect baby wipes.
