How to Choose Baby Wipes? Pay Attention to these 3 Points
Now, for families with newborns, the consumption of baby wipes is huge, second only to diapers.
Some mothers who like cleanliness and convenience may consume 8-10 packs of 80-pump wipes in the first month of their new baby's birth, and it is normal to consume 40-50 packs a year.
However, as a wet wipe for babies, it is more demanding than adult wipes, because the baby's skin is very delicate and prone to allergies. Faced with so many wet wipes products, how should mothers choose correctly so that they can use them with confidence?
1. Ensure that the Hygiene is Qualified
Branded wipes also have fakes, so choosing formal channels such as big shopping malls, supermarkets, and big website platforms is the best way to avoid buying fakes.
The shelf life of wet wipes is usually one to two years. Sometimes when there is a discount in the supermarket, it is easy to buy a lot of them on impulse. Therefore, heaping a lot is not recommended unless it is consumed quickly. Pay attention to the labels on the package, including manufacturer information, main ingredients, health license number, health standard number, production date, shelf life, etc. The products of regular manufacturers are marked with more complete labels.
2. Pay Attention to the Raw Material of the Non-woven Fabric Used
Under the premise of being hygienic, the texture of the non-woven fabric directly affects the performance of the wet wipes.
The raw material of baby wipes should be spunlace non-woven fabric. Spunlace is a kind of non-woven fabric forming process, which is widely used in the field of medical and health products.
The main components of spunlace non-woven fabrics for baby wipes are viscose (natural fiber mainly cotton) and polyester (chemical fiber). The higher the viscose content, the better the quality, and the higher the cost and price. In addition, the higher the viscose content, the softer the towel body, and the better the water absorption and water retention.
Wet wipes are of course thicker. Most of the non-woven fabrics for baby wipes are between 40 and 60 grams. 50 grams of non-woven fabrics are the choice of most mothers. They are not high-end, but the price is usually good.
In addition, baby wipes are divided into ordinary wipes and special hand and mouth wipes. Ordinary baby wipes are usually used to wipe the baby's little butt, and hand and mouth wipes are used to wipe the baby's mouth and hands.
3. Pay Attention to the Ingredients of the Solution
Baby wipes should not contain alcohol, fragrance and other ingredients.
Relatively important in the composition of the solution is antibacterial. Antibacterial wipes can reduce the damage of germs to the baby when cleaning up the baby's excrement or playing outdoors, which is beneficial to the baby's health. It is also important to note that some wipes contain chamomile, whose main role is anti-allergy, not antibacterial.
