If you have been reading my posts you should have a fairly good idea that I am very particular about what goes into my skin so you can well imagine the care I take of my baby’s skin. Even when it came to wipes, I was always hunting for alcohol and fragrance free wipes with minimal ingredients and did find a few in Dubai but they were pretty expensive. MAMA EARTH heard me I guess and they have introduced India’s first ORGANIC BAMBOO BASED WIPES. I am simply elated!

So how are these wipes different and why should one purchase these?
As you can clearly see from the list above, these wipes are made of few ingredients that are mild enough to keep skin from getting sensitized but good enough to do the job of cleansing and hydrating. The bamboo fibre used here is biodegradable and environment friendly .You may think that makes these wipes are slightly more expensive the other wipes but do you know that all wipes in the market have cheap polyester as their base material which is not recommended to be used on babies. Now you can only imagine how safe are they combined with all other sensitising ingredients present in them since many parents use them on babies’ private parts!
The natural mild fragrance of the lavender oil is extremely refreshing and I can’t wait for excuses to use these on my girl and myself. Usually I try to save my wipes but with these it’s the opposite. I am happily using them up and gearing up to stock some more! (Only for baby and me, everyone else in the house is NOT welcome to use these!)
These are standard sized wipes though I do wish they make slightly bigger ones (maybe add another variant) to clean baby’s bum and body in general. These will surely be small for that and you will need to use 2 wipes. They are perfect for face cleaning and one is enough because even though they are standard size, these are much stronger than the other wipes out there.
If your baby has sensitive skin, or like me you care about what goes into their skin (or yours), then this is it. Your search for good wipes should end right away. Right from the cute packaging to the thick strong wipes, MAMA EARTH BAMBOO WIPES are a winner!
