Materials and Precautions of Newborn Wipes

Feb 10,2022

Newborn wipes are specially designed for babies. Compared with adult wipes, newborn wipes have relatively higher requirements, because the baby's skin is very delicate and prone to allergies.

Newborn wipes are divided into ordinary wipes and hand and mouth special wipes. Ordinary newborn wipes are usually used to wipe the baby's butt, and hand and mouth wipes are used to wipe the baby's mouth and hands.

1. The function of newborn wipes

Newborn wipes are divided into different types according to their functions. They can be divided into disinfection wipes and hand and mouth wipes. They have disinfection and antibacterial functions. Different brands of wipes have different prices and different comfort levels for babies. You can purchase wipes according to actual situation.

2. The material of newborn wipes

The cost and price of wet wipes for newborn mainly depend on whether there is the non-woven fabric. Newborn wipes generally use spunlace non-woven fabrics, which are divided into two types: straight laying and cross laying.

Straight laying type has poor tensile strength, which is thinner and more transparent, and is easy to deform, fluff, and cause discomfort to the baby. The cross laying newborn wipes are also called vertical and horizontal netting. They are basically non-deformable with tensile resistance, and the cloth is thick and not easy to penetrate. Yoboo uses this material.

Baby wipes are generally used to clean and care for the baby's delicate skin and small buttocks. The ingredients of the wipes are mainly treated purified water, and then some skin-nourishing ingredients that are gentle and safe for the baby's skin are added.

Infant wipes that are gentle on baby's skin cannot contain alcohol, soap and other ingredients that can cause baby allergies. Some high-quality and thoughtful wipes also take into account the characteristics of young babies who are prone to red buttocks, such as yoboo baby hand and mouth wipes, adding ingredients that can prevent red buttocks: rich aloe vera and vitamin E, which can moisturize the skin while cleaning and protecting the delicate skin. Also, good quality wipes do not fluff after use.

3. Precautions for newborn wipes

(1) Newborn wipes are insoluble in water, so please do not throw them in the toilet to avoid blockage.

(2) If the skin has wounds or symptoms such as redness, swelling, pain, itching, etc., please stop using it and consult a doctor in time.

(3) Please do not put it in a place where there is high temperature or direct sunlight. Please be sure to close the seal after using the newborn product.

(3) Put it out of the reach of the baby to prevent the baby from accidentally eating it.

(4) Please open the sealing sticker when using, and close the sticker tightly when not in use to keep the soft wipes moist.

(5) In order to keep the newborn wipes moist, different types of wet wipes should be selected according to the actual use.

(6) Ingredients that cannot be added to newborn products


The function of alcohol in wet wipes is mainly to sterilize, but alcohol is volatile, and it is easy to lose moisture on the skin surface after wiping, and it feels tight and dry, causing skin discomfort, so it is not suitable for babies.


Essence and alcohol are both considered to be easily irritating ingredients, so scented newborn wipes should also be selected according to consumers' preferences, but the added essence will increase the risk of skin allergies, so for baby products, it should be added to ensure the materials are naturally pure. Therefore, many brands of wet wipes are clearly marked "no alcohol and essence added".


The purpose of preservatives is to protect the product from microbial contamination and prolong the shelf life and useful life of the product. However, improper use of preservatives in newborn wipes can lead to allergic dermatitis. After essence, preservatives are the second most common cause of skin irritation and skin irritation.

Fluorescent agent

Fluorescent agents should also not be used in wet wipes. If the wet wipes contain fluorescent agents, they should be added during the processing of the non-woven fabrics, which are also unfavorable to the baby's skin.

Inadequately sterilized water

The main ingredient of newborn wipes is water. This water must be treated pure water, otherwise the bacteria in the water will multiply on the wipes, which is not good for the baby's skin and health.

The quality control of big brands in pure water is still relatively guaranteed. This is the most unsafe aspect of newborn products from small manufacturers.
