Infant wet wipes evaluation: these wet wipes have become poisonous wipes

As the standard of living gets better and better, people’s concept of childcare is gradually changing, especially those young people born in the 80s and 90s who must pay more attention to the exquisiteness of life.

In the eyes of young parents, the behavior of the older generation wiping everything with a cloth when they bring their babies always makes them feel that they are not very clean. In contrast, clean and easy-to-obtain wet wipes are more pleasing to young people.

According to a sample survey of 1,800 consumers conducted by the Shanghai Consumer Protection Commission, nearly 60% of consumers use wet wipes frequently, and 38% of consumers use wet wipes for the sanitation of infants and young children.

But are these wet wipes really as clean as Bao Ma imagined? Perhaps the following assessment can give Bao Ma the answer.

These wet tissues mixed with industrial products will cause a strong stimulus to the baby’s delicate skin, and in severe cases, it will even invade the baby’s nervous system and blood system, affecting the baby’s intellectual development.


No wonder netizens bluntly said after reading this news: Today’s poisonous paper towels are dirtier than dishcloths.



The reason why these wet tissues are called poisonous tissues is not without reason. These unqualified phenomena that often occur in wet tissues will have a great impact on the safety of babies.


1) Excess formaldehyde


Some mothers’ inherent thinking is that excessive formaldehyde will only appear in newly-purchased furniture or newly-decorated houses. In fact, this kind of things that are often used in industry, if not well controlled, will easily appear in life, even those so-called “no additives” wet wipes will be caught.


Formaldehyde will affect your baby’s digestive ability and normal physical development. If you live in an environment with too much formaldehyde for a long time, it may even induce cancer in your baby. If formaldehyde is present in the wet tissue, when Baoma wipes the baby with the wet tissue, the formaldehyde will irritate the baby’s delicate skin and cause the baby to cry.



2) Inappropriate acid and alkali


Generally speaking, the PH value of the human body surface is between 4.5 and 7.5. If it is not strictly controlled, the pH value of the wet tissue directly wiped on the face will be lower than 4.5, which will cause irritation to the baby’s skin, and in severe cases, it may even cause bacterial infection of the baby’s skin.


When Momma uses wet wipes, it’s best to avoid these minefields


1) Don’t be greedy for petty bargains


As the saying goes: greedy small and cheap will suffer big losses. When choosing wet wipes for babies, Mommy should try to choose those big brands, and avoid choosing wet wipes that look cheap but are actually produced by Sanwu merchants.


After all, wet wipes are in close contact with the baby’s skin. Long-term use of wet wipes produced by unqualified businesses will inevitably affect the baby’s safety.

2) Do not wipe the sensitive parts of the baby


The moisture in the wet wipes contains a lot of chemical components. When wiping the baby, Baoma should avoid touching the sensitive parts of the baby, such as the eyes, mouth, and sensitive parts of the body. These parts are easily stimulated by chemical substances, so that The baby is unwell.


3) Wet wipes are not suitable for repeated use


In order to save money when using wet tissues, some mothers often use a tissue over and over for a long time. As everyone knows, this actually violates the original intention of using wet wipes. On the contrary, repeated use will cause the bacteria on the wet wipes that have been used to spread repeatedly.


Especially for private items such as baby bottles and pacifiers that babies often use, it is best not to wipe them with wet tissues. It is necessary to use high-temperature hot water for sterilization.
