WaterWipes were created by our founder Edward McCloskey after his newborn daughter suffered with bad nappy rash. After an extensive search he couldn’t find a baby wipe that didn’t contain chemicals or other ingredients that would’ve been too harsh for her sensitive skin, so he decided to make his own. Many years later and after a lot of hard work, testing, and scientific research, WaterWipes were born. WaterWipes® have been specifically developed to be as mild and pure as cloth wool and water, to help maintain the important skin barrier function of the stratum corneum, while offering the convenience of a wipe. They provide safe cleansing for the most delicate newborn skin and are so gentle they can also be used on premature babies.
