Review: Huggies Natural Care Fragrance Free Wipes

August 28, 2008
I am obviously already partial to using the Nature Babycare line of products and so no this is not going to be a very positive review for these wipes, they aren’t necessarily bad, there are definite pluses to these wipes, but I do not see the pros outweighing the cons.
Pros:

  • Very moist
  • Very thick
  • You can first purchase a hard case and then purchase bulk packages of refills which is nice.
  • Alcohol-free.
  • Cheaper than Nature Babycare per wipe.

Cons:

  • While they are moist, they have a tendency to almost be soapy, they actually left what looked like soap bubbles on our daughter’s bottom after wiping.
  • They are not fragrance free as stated, they have a chemical smell to them.
  • They tear easily despite their thickness.
  • The list of ingredients are not as natural as one would think, and just to make my point here is the list of ingredients on the back of the packaging: Water – Aqua, Potassium Laureth Phosphate, Glycerin, Polysorbate-20, Tetrasodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Methylparaben, Malic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate – Vitamin E (Note: The links lead to a website “Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Database – Ingredient Report” that lists possible dangers of the chemicals found in personal care products, it is a great website to look up ingredients both in your and your child’s personal care products).

Personally for me they just didn’t fit the bill since they seemed to increase the frequency of diaper rash. But I guess if you can’t find anything else they will do the job, but I would rather just use some water and a cloth wipe if that is the case. For those still interested in purchasing you can find these at almost every drugstore, I purchased my package at Target, and you can find them at Diapers.com as well.
