Is included in the purchase of credit blacklist is: general polyester cloth without proof cloth. Low cost, very likely to carry synthetic fiber, very easy to irritating skin.
Big brands don’t mean safety

Note that the ingredients cannot be added
The role of alcohol in wet paper towels is mainly sterilization, but alcohol is volatile, wipe after easy to make the skin surface moisture loss, feel tight and dry, resulting in skin discomfort, so it is not suitable for the baby.
Fragrance and alcohol are considered to be easy to produce stimulating ingredients, so the aromatic smell should be selected according to the preferences of consumers, but the increased spice ingredients increase the risk of skin allergy, so for infant products, should ensure natural and pure. As a result, many brands of wet wipes are clearly labeled as “no alcohol and spice added.”
The purpose of preservatives is to protect the product from microbial contamination and extend the shelf life and service life of the product. However, improper use of preservatives can lead to allergic dermatitis. Besides spices, preservatives are the second most common cause of skin allergy and skin irritation.
fluorescent agents should also not be found in wet paper towels. If the wipes contain fluorescent agent, it should be added in the treatment of non-woven fabric, which is also bad for the baby’s skin.
Water without sufficient sterilization:
the main composition of baby wipes is water, this water must be treated with pure water, otherwise the bacteria in the water will multiply on the wipes, which is harmful to the baby’s skin and health.

The wipes do not replace washing hands
The key to using baby wipes is to alleviate temporary needs, such as when taking your baby to play outdoors. But one thing you have to remember is that no best baby wipes can replace hand washing, which are two different degrees of cleaning. But currently “disinfection”, “sterilization” is still an important selling point of these products. Because the selling point of wet wipes is “disinfection, sterilization”, people will not wash their hands after using wet wipes, and completely forget that there are chemical components left on their hands, which is bad for children. Using wet wipes is not the same as washing hands. No matter how repeatedly wipe the hands can not remove the bacteria on the surface of the skin, wash your hands with soap, plus the flowing water, is the cleanest. So mothers should not be lazy, when they should wash their hands at home and wash their hands, do not rely on baby wipes.
