Waterwipes wipes are recognized as the purest baby wipes, consisting of 99.9% water and a "drop" of fruit extract.
The WaterWipes were carefully designed to be gentle on baby's sensitive skin. They are the only wipes that contain absolutely no chemicals, just 99.9% water and a small drop of grapefruit seed extract - a natural skin conditioner. They are, therefore, the best alternative to compresses and water. Babies have very delicate skin that must be preserved and protected.

What does “biodegradable” mean? Can biodegradable wipes be placed in the toilet?
If you go to your local supermarket, you will find plenty of baby products with "biodegradable" on the label. But what does biodegradable really mean? And how is it different from other ecological terms such as compostable and recyclable? We explain...
1. What does biodegradable mean?
When a substance or object is biodegradable, it can be decomposed naturally by temperature, sunlight, or microorganisms such as bacteria. This means it will not remain in the landfill forever.
For a product to be certified as biodegradable, it has to decompose into natural elements in a reasonably short period of time, usually less than a year.
2. What is biodegradable plastic?
Although most things eventually decompose, some take much longer than others. Kitchen paper decomposes in two to four weeks1, for example, but a plastic bottle made from petroleum products can take more than 450 years2.
Biodegradable plastics, on the other hand, can take just three to six months to fully decompose, if the conditions are right. Made primarily from plant-based sources, they are designed to decompose when exposed to the presence of microorganisms.
3. Biodegradable vs. compostable vs. recyclable – what's the difference?
As described above, biodegradable products naturally decompose when exposed to temperature, sunlight or microorganisms.
If something is compostable, it means it's made from organic matter and can be quickly broken down into a nutrient-rich, non-toxic soil conditioner (ie, compost). However, to achieve this, special composting conditions are needed.
Recycling is the process of converting used waste (eg glass or plastic bottles) into new products and materials.
4. Can biodegradable baby wipes be placed in the toilet?
Putting baby wipes, even biodegradable baby wipes, in the toilet is something you should never do. They take a long time to decompose in a sewer system environment and consequently clog pipes and mechanisms. Furthermore, they are harmful to wild animals, which often confuse them with food.
5. How should biodegradable products be disposed of?
Biodegradable products are designed to decompose in landfills, so they should be disposed of with general household waste.
6. Are WaterWipes products biodegradable?
Yes. In January 2021, our baby wipes started to be produced with biodegradable material, so now WaterWipes has 100% biodegradable baby wipes, not tested on animals, vegan and compostable. Our wipes still contain minimal ingredients to clean your skin or your baby's skin, but now they're plant-based and better for the planet.
