Well, a lot of things it seems. The managing director of Irish Breeze who developed WaterWipes noticed that his daughter experienced more skin irritation when he used conventional disposable wipes. This discovery followed by anecdotal evidence of increasing diaper rash incidence inevitably led to a blue sky challenge to the Irish Breeze R&D team: How do we create a totally different kind of product, combining the convenience of disposable baby wipes with the purity and safety of cotton wool and cooled boiled water?’
If you are a parent, you know that you change your baby’s diaper approximately 10 times a day. And if your baby has experienced diaper rash, you know just how irritating a simple diaper change can be on your baby’s delicate skin.
Did you know…
Due to these differences, a baby’s skin requires extra special care and attention. Luckily, parents can take a few simples steps to avoid rashes and skin irritation.
Midwives and dermatologists recommend that ordinary baby wipes are not used for the first few months of a baby’s life. Instead, only cooled boiled (sterile) water applied with cotton wool or something equally soft and clean should be used.
DermaH20 WaterWipes from Irish Breeze, because of their unmatched purity and mildness, are the only the only baby wipes to meet this recommendation while remaining as convenient to use as ordinary baby wipes. WaterWipes are also the only baby wipe that has been approved by leading allergy charity Allergy UK.
You can use WaterWipes without fear of damaging baby’s delicate skin.
