Battle Baby Wipes

Huggies Natural Care vs. Natracare Organic Cotton Baby Wipes

Baby wipes are a convenience most parents just can’t do without. Huggies Natural Care wipes with aloe and vitamin E seem like a safe product, but don’t be deceived by the term ‘natural’. The wipes contain a number of ‘unnatural’ ingredients including synthetic cleansers and chemical preservatives.

 

Savvy Alerts:
Polysorbate 20
Sodium methylparaben
Methylisothiazolinone
 

 

Sodium Methylparaben:

Methylparaben is in the paraben family of preservatives and is used in wipes to inhibit microbial growth. Parabens are known endocrine disruptors. They are absorbed through the skin and bind to estrogen-receptors, disrupting hormone function and causing inflammation.

Savvy Pick

We only want the best for our children, so why use risky chemicals to clean your baby’s tender tushie? Many brands of baby wipes are made from synthetic cloth, such as polypropylene or chlorine bleached viscose rayon. Natracare Organic Cotton Baby Wipes are made with certified organic cotton, eco-friendly plant-derived ingredients and are completely chemical-free.
