Irish Breeze has developed DermaH20 WaterWipes to address concerns which health professionals have raised about commercial baby wipes.
Pure, natural and free from harmful chemicals, our revolutionary DermaH20 WaterWipe product is unlike any other baby wipe on the market.
Our advanced technologies (patent pending) have allowed us to develop the world’s purest and mildest baby wipes, containing only 99.9% water and 0.1% fruit extract.
And because our product essentially contains just purified water, it is much less likely to be irritating for a baby’s skin than ordinary commercially available baby wipes.
There is compelling scientific evidence about the impact of commercial baby wipes in the onset of nappy rash, eczema and other sensitive skin conditions in babies and young children.
One in three babies will suffer a sensitive skin condition and of these, four in 10 will go on to develop eczema, according to a recent independent study.
Independent studies in Britain, Australia and the US have identified the use of soaps, bath and shower gels, and baby wipes as among the main factors in the increased incidence of nappy rash, eczema and other skin conditions in babies and young children.
Professor David Atheron, honorary senior lecturer in paediatric dermatology at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, writing in Community Practitioner 2005, stated that: “Current research suggests that irritant napkin dermatitis (nappy rash) is principally a response of the skin to the assault by irritants.
“The worst offenders in this respect are baby-washing products. Indeed, evidence is accumulating that the rapid increase in atopic dermatitis in children is due to the parallel increase in the use of such products.”
The average baby care product can contain dozens of chemicals in the guise of perfume, preservatives and colours. These chemicals include:
DermaH20 WaterWipes are also the only wet wipes product safe to use on newborns.
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.
Independent trials and validation
DermaH20 WaterWipes have been thoroughly tested and approved by independent third-party laboratories and researchers. They have been found to be non irritant, and are stable with a long shelf life after opening.
