As the skin of babies is very sensitive, it is necessary to ensure that the baby wipes are not made of toxic ingredients or chemicals. Various chemicals such as formaldehyde-releasing chemicals, preservatives, penetration enhancers, fragrance mixes, parabens, triclosan, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)/sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), polyethylene glycol (PEG), methylisothiazolinone (MIT), and iodopropynylbutylcarbamate (IPBC) are used in baby wipes and facial wipes. Consumers are unaware of all toxic ingredients as these are not listed on the product. These chemicals cause several health issues, and therefore its use in wipes should be avoided. For instance, formaldehyde that is used in wipes is a toxic chemical that is known to cause cancer, damage the central nervous system, and impact reproductive health. It can be absorbed into the body or skin by inhalation or ingestion. Sometimes, the products may not contain formaldehyde as an ingredient but will contain formaldehyde-releasing chemicals. Often baby wipes and facial wipes contain formaldehyde-releasing chemicals as preservatives.
