We know how busy you are so, we took the initiative to help you make an informed decision for child care with a review of the 10 best baby wipes today.

"What Should I Consider Before Buying Baby Wipes?" 

Looking for the best baby wipes in the market still remains a challenge for parents whether it be their first born or their second, third and even sixth. Each baby has different skin that will need different care. With so many products in the market, we need to have proper guidelines to get what we need, what we want in a manner that is most efficient for us. With this in mind, here are four things you need to remember:

1. Chemicals - Most of the baby wipes available in the market nowadays promised to be chemically free. But, there are those that still have chemical ingredients in them. That is, the wipes are partially natural and combined with alcohol, fragrances or lotion among the other chemical elements.

This does not necessarily equate to being harmful to you or even your baby’s skin. But, there are babies whose skin are easily irritated or are suffering from eczema. With such ailment, the chemicals will produce imbalances in the skin and cause more breakouts. This is the very reason why we recommend that you know your baby’s skin requirements vis-a-vis the chemicals found on the baby wipes.

2. Baby Skin and Sensitiveness - Being parents, we need to understand that each of our children has varying needs, especially when it comes to skin care. But the common consideration we have is to ensure that their skin is well protected from any ailments that can cause discomfort and harm to them.

It is part of your concern and consideration to take into account the level of sensitivity, the skin type and the caring it will require. It is only when you are knowledgeable that you have high chances of finding the right baby wipes for them. We understand that sometimes we go through an experimental phase to look for the right wipes for our children.

Talking to your doctor may help you understand your children’s skin care requirement. Then coupled with a product review, you will have an easier time in looking for the right materials.

3. Materials and Elements used - Some may contain vitamins, other wipes have special water used and others have these minerals incorporated to the baby wipes. Just like chemicals, some parents want as many natural elements and materials on the wipes more than harmful chemicals. But, parents should also know which of these elements are appropriate for their children.

Different elements provide different comfort and care. It is an important consideration that you look into the ingredients of the wipes and see which will you require most. There are wipes that give soothing care. While there are those the provides moisturization of the skin.

Provided with all these options, you need to consider from among these baby wipes is most appropriate to the needs of your baby. You need to make sure that all elements are compatible with the skin to avoid breakouts, irritation, and allergies.

4. Special Features - As consumers, we also look for unique experiences when we purchase products. We understand that need and so we remind our readers that they should consider products that have more to special features to offer.

With baby wipes, the product is among those products which have a simple purpose. But it does mean that we will compromise a special experience taking into account that it involves the little ones. Taking care of our baby’s skin is not easy and simple that even the smallest mistake can cause serious hazards to both you and the baby.

Special features do not also have to be grand or big. In the outset, these special features may be small or immaterial, but it can add so much comfort to parents and babies alike.

How we Assessed and Evaluated these Baby Wipes

Online research

We scoured the virtual market space through our reliable research to look for the best baby wipes in the market. We looked into different brands and visited their website to access more information and data about the product. We believe in thorough research to come up with the best products we can put under review.

A challenge we have encountered is that there are hundreds of baby wipes we found online. One brand even has several selections of baby wipes. So it has been difficult for us to narrow down the choices into ten. What helped us most is having the buyer’s guide and we strived to have a complete comparison of the products.

Comparison

When choosing the ten best baby wipes, we look into the features and promised benefits. We used the criteria from the buyer’s guide above. We then examine whether the product has reached the criteria more so than others. We examine the product individually then in contrast with others.

We spent a good part of the entire review process with comparing the product we deemed can be part of the top ten. It was not easy as there are many things to consider from the product itself. But, there is more to look when comparing the product since as said there are a lot of them.

Buyer’s Guide

The buyer’s guide is based on the perceived needs and preferences of the primary target market of the product, which are the parents. We searched what the parents are looking for in baby wipes.

We came up with four items, which served as the basis for selecting the top ten and for examining these. The primary consideration we used was the safety and health of the babies and their skin. That is more than the novelty and the feature of the product, we ensure that it is compatible with the needs of the parents and their babies. So we had four criteria that are directed to the product and that of the needs of the product users.

#1. Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes

While regular products are made with fabric materials and other plant sources, the Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes is made from bamboo strands engineered to produce soft, but strong baby wipes.

At first, we (and maybe you) thought that bamboo as wood produces hard materials, but the wipes are actually soft to the touch.

This is suited for baby’s very sensitive skin especially the newborns.

You also need not worry about tearing since bamboo durability is a very durable material. So parents can also use this to clean the mess from toys, bottles, and feeding utensils among others.

The brand understands how parents want not only the softest but the safest as well. The Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes was created by Aleva's founder (and pharmacist) to help soothe a baby’s nasal congestion. With this, the pharmacist-founder also ensure that it is safe as it is effective by using the principles behind Ayur and Veda or life science.

We found that the benefits of traditional medicines are the use of all natural products that is the basis of the vegan lifestyle. For parents who are looking for ‘vegan’ baby wipes, this product is made with organics like Aloe Vera, Tea Tree and Lavender oil and Chamomile extracts. These combined leave your baby's’ skin smooth and rash-free, most especially those exposed to diapers. Also, we’ve discovered that these add soothing comfort to babies with ultra-sensitive skin. So we recommend these to parents whose baby’s skin can easily be irritated.

But, one problem we found with Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes is that it is drier that what we’re used to. Since its dry, several wipes need to be used to complete the cleaning. This is disadvantageous when cleaning baby poop and food mess as these are a little solid. One may want add water which is an additional hassle for parents who does not have someone to help them.

What We Liked

  • Made from bamboo fiber
  • Vegan ingredients

What We Didn't Like

  • May be too dry

#2. Jackson Reece Kinder by Nature Natural Unscented Biodegradable and Compostable Baby Wipes

This baby wipes is closely similar with Aleva, but instead of nasal congestion, the founders’ baby was suffering from eczema and diaper rash.

These parents weren't able to find the right wipes for their child that is free from harmful chemicals since these are also one of the causes of the skin ailment.

With this need, the parent-founders have developed baby wipes that are made from natural herbs with less harmful chemicals

The adage from its name ‘kinder by nature’ shows what is the product is about. Our research uncovered that this product does not include harmful chemicals like parabens, alcohol, benzoates and petrochemicals, which causes dryness and skin irritation.  This product for parents who prefer chemical free baby wipes, but can still do proper cleaning of bacteria and dirt. That is why they have been awarded Gold Mother and Baby award, an annual celebration for the top brands for Moms and their babies.

This baby wipe has the right pH balance that protects baby’s skin from breakouts and rashes. This product is recommended if your baby is suffering from these skin problems. It is suitable for your child's extra sensitive skin.

Its unscented feature also caught our attention. Some parents want their babies to smell clean and good. But, the chemicals from scented wipes may cause break out, and some scents are too strong for babies. 

A drawback we found with the Jackson Reece Kinder by Nature Natural Unscented Biodegradable and Compostable Baby Wipes is that it is also dry like Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes. It can wipe off the dirt, but leaves a not so clean feeling. You may end up using more wipes.

What We Liked

  • pH balanced
  •  No harmful chemicals

What We Didn't Like

  • Quite dry

#3. Bloom BABY Sensitive Skin Unscented Hypoallergenic Baby Wipes

We try to diversify the product we placed on review to get the best in the market. This led us to come across a brand that went an extra mile to give the purest elements for their baby wipes.

The brand, Bloom Baby believes in doing good by doing right with creating products that is safe for both the consumer and the environment.

With this in mind, they created the Bloom BABY Sensitive Skin Unscented Hypoallergenic Baby Wipes made from HydroPure™ water that is known for their water treatment.

Baby Bloom claimed that they used glacier water as the base of their wipes. We discovered that the benefits of glacier water is that it is distilled in itself and free from contamination. We recommend this product if you are anxious about the type of water used in the wipes. This also leaves the baby’s skin free from any irritation and rashes since it is pure.

Aside from HydroPure™, this product also has EcoFiber™ which produces soft and smooth wipes that are gentle on the skin as it is supposed to be skin-friendly and contains vitamins. But, the Bloom BABY Sensitive Skin Unscented Hypoallergenic Baby Wipes was found to cause breakouts and rash for other babies. Some parents have reported that their baby experienced skin irritation when using this product. 

We also love its longer size and stretchy texture of the wipes. This is helpful for parents to clean up the mess without it smearing in your hands or other clean areas. The wipes are also thick enough to prevent the dirt (liquid or semi-solid) from leaking of the baby wipes.

What We Liked

  • Use of glacier water
  • HydroPure™
  • EcoFiber™

What We Didn't Like

  • Cause skin irritations

#4. Pampers Baby Wipes Baby Fresh

A baby brand that has been in the industry since the 1950s founded by a chemical engineer.

As a key player in the market, the brand has been a constant for many households.

It is no wonder it also developed Pampers Baby Wipes Baby Fresh in their line of their baby products.

Similar to that of Jackson Reece Kinder by Nature Natural Unscented Biodegradable and Compostable Baby Wipes, this product also has the right amount of pH to rebalance the acidity of baby’s skin after these are exposed to harmful bacteria from poop, urine, and other elements. The products leave the skin extra clean and healthy.

This baby wipes likewise use pure water as a base, but also includes lotion. It can both be an advantage and drawback depending on the sensitivity of the baby’s skin. Lotion may help moisturize baby's skin to keep it healthy and hydrated. But, there are some babies whose skin are very sensitive that the chemicals from lotion can cause irritation. We suggest that you know your baby’s skin sensitivity beforehand when considering the product.

The packaging will show a 4X stronger label, true to this, the baby wipes does not easily tear up. These are thick enough so it does not tear up especially when used to clean up poop and food mess. But, we found that although it is strong it feels rough and cottony. It is not very soft on the skin. This may be a problem if the baby is extra sensitive to rough materials.

Another issue we found with Pampers Baby Wipes Baby Fresh is that it is too wet. If we found that Jackson Reece Kinder by Nature Natural Baby Wipes and Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes are too dry, this product is the opposite. It is very wet, that at times is not helpful because it causes dirt to smear and seep through the hands.

What We Liked

  • Strong wipes
  • With lotion to moisturize
  • Good scent

What We Didn't Like

  • May be too rough to feel comfortable
  • Extra wet

#5. WaterWipes Sensitive Baby Wipes, Natural & Chemical-Free

Another award winning brand with the National Eczema Association of America Seal of Acceptance on their belt, as a recognition and to encourage innovation for brands to help augment the life conditions of those with sensitive skin and eczema. Let us then see their performance.

If some baby wipes contain natural oils and vitamins, WaterWipes Sensitive Baby Wipes, Natural & Chemical-Free contains only two elements, purified water, and fruit extracts. This simple solution assures parents that their baby’s skin will not be exposed to any chemicals that will lead to skin breakouts and irritation, even eczema.

Some good features of the product are its size and moistness. There are parents who opt for bigger sized wipes to have bigger coverage and to conserve the wipes as well. Also, there are times that parents fold the wipes to ensure that the dirt or mess will not seep through and get in contact with your hands. So, it will be helpful to have larger sized wipes. The good thing is that these wipes are big enough for parents to have greater wiping coverage, while the can also fold it if preferred.

As to its moistness, we were disappointed to know that the first few wipes were quite dry compared to the ones we commonly consume. But, lower into the pack, the wipes moistness has improved. This may be because water has seeped down because water runs through the wipes. This is a big disadvantage because each wipe does not provide consistent performance. Some babies are too sensitive to dry and rough wipes.

Like the Bloom BABY Sensitive Skin Unscented Hypoallergenic Baby Wipes, the WaterWipes Sensitive Baby Wipes, Natural & Chemical-Free is thick that it is effective enough to absorb wetness and will not leak to your hand. 

What We Liked

  • Large size
  • Thick enough

What We Didn't Like

  • Other wipes in the pack are not moist enough

#6. Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes Hypoallergenic Fragrance Free

Huggies is also one of the brands that have gained popularity for mother and baby needs, taking into account that they have been in the industry for quite some time.

An addition to their baby products is the Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes Hypoallergenic Fragrance-Free that highlights chemical free wipes.

K-8 schools trusted the branded to include it as part of their lists. This may be due to the essential elements found in each wipe. This product has a duo power of Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. Our research concludes that Aloe Vera is good for soothing skin and provides moisture. We recommend that parents consider this product if they are on the hunt for baby wipes that does not only clean but maintains the baby skin after.

Thisproduct is for babies who are sensitive to scent and fragrances. The Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes Hypoallergenic Fragrance Free as the name suggests has no fragrance and alcohol mixed into the baby wipes. 

Some may think that the packaging is an insignificant feature of the product. But, for parents, a useful and easy packaging is advantageous considering that babies can be fidgety. Because of their restlessness, parents want to finish cleaning up immediately. This product has the EZ Pull Dispensing Technology which allows you to easily pull the wipes out.

But, we found that the product is a little dry and rough when used on the skin. Similar to Jackson Reece Kinder by Nature Natural Unscented Biodegradable and Compostable Baby Wipes, WaterWipes Sensitive Baby Wipes, Natural & Chemical-Free and Aleva Naturals Bamboo the wipes are dry making the wiping experience ineffective and rough to the baby’s skin.

What We Liked

  • Made from natural elements
  • No harmful chemicals
  • Easy pull

What We Didn't Like

  • Dry
  • Rough

#7. Seventh Generation Free and Clear Baby Wipes

The Seventh Generation brand is also an old player in the market. For over 25 years in the industry, they focused on creating products made from plant sources.

This product comes in a new package and promises improved baby wipes. The wipes are soft and feels like cloth. It helps with providing protection against roughness and irritation. But, an issue we’ve discovered from this product is that although it is soft it is not strong enough to hold-up. That is, cannot clean your baby without it tearing apart.

A redeeming quality of the Seventh Generation Free and Clear Baby Wipe is its extra large size. You can fold the wipes, but it can still give you a good amount of coverage. Also, the good thing about having to fold the wipe is that it has less probability of leaking.

True to their brand principle, this product is made from plant elements. The brand has moved from plastic to plant essences. In effect, the product has become safer to baby's skin since it has more natural ingredients.

Similar to other wipes we reviewed, this product is also alcohol-free and contains no harmful chemicals. Thus, making the product more and more safe for babies and their skin.

An issue we found with the product is that it is not only thin it is also dry. Some parents found that the wipes are too dry to their liking. This will mean that several wipes need to be used in order clean everything up. But, other parents find that their wetness is just the right amount. 

What We Liked

  • Leaves a soft and gentle feel
  • Large sized wipes
  • Made from plant materials

What We Didn't Like

  • A little dry
  • Rough on skin

#8. Babyganics Face, Hand & Baby Wipes, Fragrance Free

A brand managed by two dads, Babyganics come from a simple beginning.

As parents, they were concerned with giving the best for their coming children.

Even before the founder’s son was born, Babyganics is becoming a reality.

The brand’s focus is to offer baby safe and environmentally friendly products.

A majority of their products have the NeoNourish® Seed Oil Blend registered service including Babyganics Face, Hand & Baby Wipes, Fragrance-Free. A nourishment service from the brand that comes from blended seed oil. The baby wipes are fused with oil from black cumin, sunflower, tomato, cranberry, and red raspberry seeds. These oil extracts give the proper nourishment to help in the development of children’s skin.

But, like Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes Hypoallergenic Fragrance-Free, it also maintains the skin by giving off antioxidants. Truly, the product is quite gentle on the skin. It will be a good combination for baby’s sensitive skin that is still in the process of developing.

To add to the blended oil elements, the Babyganics Face, Hand & Baby Wipes, Fragrance-Free is also hypoallergenic. It does not contain harmful elements like parabens, fragrances or dye from many others. Parents won't constantly worry that their baby will develop skin irritation with this hypoallergenic formula.

A downside we discovered about the product is that although the packaging indicates it is fragrance-free, there is a certain strange scent that makes the wipes unappealing. Some parents may not favor the weird odor. Thus, this may be a negative point against the product.

Another issue we’ve found is that the opening is not totally resealable. Air can enter drying out the moisture of the baby wipes. In effect, it defeats the wetness character of the wipes. This also exposes the wipes from foreign elements that may or may not cause problems.

What We Liked

  • NeoNourish® Seed Oil Blend
  • Chemical free

What We Didn't Like

  • Strange odor
  • Un-resealable opening

9. Elements Baby Wipes, Unscented

This baby wipe is also made from natural elements. The water in the wipes was purified from a river in Indiana, which is gentle on your baby’s skin while also keeping it safe.

To add more protection and a healthier result, it also has Aloe Vera and Vitamin E.

These two elements ensures that the wipes soothe the skin most especially if the baby’s skin is already suffering from rash.

One distinguishing character of this wipes is that it is stronger in combating the cleaning process. It means that even the most rigid cleaning, it will not easily tear. You may find the  Elements Baby Wipes, Unscented helpful if you require lots of wiping especially during the potty training phase. This is because the product does not easily break. Thus you won't be needing too many wipes in one cleaning activity.

This product is unscented. Similar to other unscented products, this is good for those who do not want any odor on their wipes or those with a low tolerance for fragrances and may develop allergies. 

The product may be strong, but it is among those wipes that are drier than necessary. It means that because of the dryness level, we find that it does not clean effectively. More wipes are needed to completely clean poop or other mess. On top of being dry, it is also less absorbent. TheElements Baby Wipes, Unscented, cannot clean, but smear liquid mess because the material will not immediately absorb it.

What We Liked

  • Made from natural elements
  • Strong

What We Didn't Like

  • Dry
  • Unabsorbent

#10. Medpride baby wipes

Coming in scented and unscented wipes, the Medpride baby wipes is among the disposable products made by Medpride.

A rising brand that offers care products for patient care.

Their products are based on hospital standards including their baby wipes. So it is expected to perform well.

As to the ingredients, it is at par with other products as it comes with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. It feels gentle on the skin and will leave baby’s skin smoother. This is an good feature because of how sensitive a baby’s skin can be. It will not only keep it from rash and irritation, it will also help avoid skin dryness.

The size is one thing that we love about the product. It is also large like WaterWipes Sensitive Baby Wipes, Natural & Chemical-Free, and Seventh Generation Free and Clear Baby Wipes with Flip Top Dispenser. The large size allows you to fold the wipes for more absorption of the dirt or mess.

It is pointed out above that the wipes come in scented and unscented. The odor is fine and is not too strong. It will leave baby’s skin not only smooth but also smelling good. But, this may not be favorable if your baby is sensitive to scents.

Another thing we liked about the product is the ease of its resealable package with it double seals. It can easily be opened and resealed so as to not leave the product open, which will lead to dried wipes.

Since the size is bigger, we expected that it can clean as much mess. But we found that the Medpride baby wipes are relatively thinner. The tendency of thin wipes is that you will need to more wipes to complete what you are cleaning. With babies, a mess will oftentimes double or even triple. So the thinness of the wipes is a serious drawback.

What We Liked

  • Good smell
  • Large size
  • Made with natural elements
  • Double seal

What We Didn't Like

  • Thin wipes

Our Recommendations

Editor’s Choice: Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes

Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes stands as our Editor’s choice from among the ten reviewed products. Our selection was highly influenced by the value we got from the product through the ingredients, the materials used and the outcome of the usage of the product.

Plant extracts are usually used to make baby wipes, but we found excellence in the use of bamboo fibers as the fabric of the baby wipes. Being made from bamboo does not produce rough wipes, it rather produces a durable material that can withstand rigid cleaning.

But the thing we like the most is that it is soft, smooth and made from a combination different vegan plant sources as Aloe Vera, Tea Tree and Lavender oil and Chamomile. These have proven to be safe for baby with super sensitive skin and keeps it health as well. We give premium to the safeness of the product since baby’s skin is very sensitive.

Although it is drier than expected, it is enough to clean out the mess, most especially poop and pee.

Runners Up: Bloom BABY Sensitive Skin Unscented Hypoallergenic BabyBabyganics Face, Hand & Baby Wipes

Coveting the 1st runner-up position is the Bloom BABY Sensitive Skin Unscented Hypoallergenic Baby. It was very close to being the Editor’s choice because of its trademarked EcoFiber™ feature and the branded water treatment (HydroPure™) for as base of the product. These features ensure the purity and natural character of the baby wipes.

It also has a good size for larger coverage. You can even stretch the material to maximize its surface. The concern we have for this is that there are reports of breakouts from babies who have very sensitive skin. But, this product is effective and efficient.

The second in the running is the Babyganics Face, Hand & Baby Wipes, Fragrance-Free. It also has a unique feature that is a registered service of the brand, NeoNourish® Seed Oil. This combines oil coming from cumin, sunflower, tomato, cranberry, and red raspberry seeds, which are known for the nourishment they give to the skin. The product not only cleans but also ensure that baby’s skin is kept healthy
