Baby Wipes Safety

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Baby and Child Health at 2:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A new study has found that baby wipes are as safe and hydrating as using water on newborn skin. The University of Manchester study, published in BioMed Central’s journal ‘BMC Pediatrics’, compared baby wipes against cotton wool and water on 280 newborn babies split into two groups over a three-year period at Central Manchester NHS Foundation Trust.

Throughout this trial, parents were advised to bathe their newborns in water alone and not to use any other product on their baby’s skin. The findings showed that the wipes were equivalent to water and cotton wool in terms of skin hydration. No significant differences were found in the secondary outcomes. The trial was conducted fully independently by a group of health-care professionals and was approved by the ethics committee and monitored by and external Data Monitoring Committee (DMC).

The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends that parents should use water only on newborns. However, the study found that wipes, much more convenient for parents, were as effective and as safe as water and hydrated babies’ skin just as well.
