Skin al­ler­gies

The preser­va­tives, mois­turis­ers and fra­grances in baby wipes after all are chem­i­cals and can be clas­si­fied as al­ler­gens. While they may seem harm­less, their con­tin­u­ous use may make the baby’s skin more sen­si­tive which can lead to rashes and skin al­ler­gies and in­fec­tions. Some stud­ies have shown that reg­u­larly use of baby wipes may cause al­ler­gic and con­tact der­mati­tis.

En­vi­ron­men­tal Hazard

Baby wipes are not eas­ily de­graded mak­ing them a li­a­bil­ity on the en­vi­ron­ment. If you are en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious, you may want to stick to re­us­able cot­ton cloths.

While baby wipes are con­ve­nient and soft on the skin, you must read the con­tents on the pack­age be­fore buy­ing. Avoid buy­ing wipes that con­tain al­co­hol and fra­grances. They tend to ir­ri­tate the skin and may cause skin al­ler­gies.
