Baby Wipes – The Chemicals! Your Natural Wipes May be Harmful.
It is a crime that certain manufacturers use formaldehyde releasers and worse.
As a result, traces of unreacted ethylene oxide might be left in the final product.”
It is known that 1,4-dioxane gets created during the ethoxylation process.
Unless a manufacturer uses a vacuum-stripping method to get rid of 1,4-dioxane, the dangerous chemical will remain in the baby wipes (it is a carcinogen).
Regular application of baby wipes containing those chemicals may increase the risk of cancer for babies down the road.
Here are the examples of ingredients I saw in baby wipes, which may be contaminated with ethylene oxide and 1,4-dioxane (carcinogens):
- Bis-PEG/PPG-16/16 PEG/PPG-16/16 Dimethicone
- Potassium Laureth Phosphate
- Polysorbate 20
- PEG-75 Lanolin
Kirkland Brand – get a million wipes for $20! BUT look at the chemicals!
***Phenoxyethanol*** a chemical preservative with a black box warning: .
 to severe, life-threatening allergic reactions.
 Infant oral exposure to phenoxyethanol can acutely affect nervous system function.
The FDA warned that phenoxyethanol can cause shut down of the central nervous system, vomiting and contact dermatitis.
(It is being used instead of parabens, but is equally evil).
Earth’s Best, Burt’s Bees Wipes have Phenoxyethanol and other harsh chemicals.
Huggies Natural Care has PEG-4 PG-Amodimethicone and preservatives.
Pampers Baby Fresh Wipes have mostly horrific ingredients including:
PEG-40, Sodium Citrate, Sorbitan Caprylate, Sodium Benzoate, Disodium EDTA, Bis-PEG/PPG-16/PPG-16/16 Dimethicone, Fragrance (a chemical soup of possibly hundreds of chemicals).
