What is in WaterWipes Soapberry?
Water (Aqua) 99.9% and Citrus Grandis (grapefruit) seed extract*, Sapindus trifoliatus (Soapberry) fruit extract.
*Contains trace of Benzalkonium Chloride (Benzalkonium Chloride is not a deliberate ingredient added during the manufacture of WaterWipes. It is a trace residue in the protective production of high quality grapeseed extract which is obtained from a third party. Under labelling rules in different countries, processing aids or residues are not normally classed as ingredients. However, to be completely transparent and remain in line with company values, Waterwipes have updated the ingredients list to reflect the minimal trace of Benzalkonium Chloride) .
What is Soapberry?
Soapberry is a cherry-like fruit which contains saponin - a gentle natural cleanser. The berry is made up of a single, relatively large seed, which is surrounded by a layer of fruit pulp, which is where the saponin is contained.
The soapberry fruit has been used for many thousands of years as a gentle cleanser for the washing of fine silks, for hair care and personal hygiene.
Are WaterWipes with Soapberry biodegradable?
At present, WaterWipes with Soapberry are not fully biodegradable but it is absolutely where they’re headed. In fact, they’re already testing different materials and have set themselves a deadline of 2025 (but expect to crack it long before then.) Currently, natural fibers like bamboo or cotton usually need to be treated by chemicals to stay bacteria free, which is why their number one priority is to find another way.
What's NOT in WaterWipes unlike other wipes
Many other non eco baby wipes contain harsh chemical ingredients - even the "sensitive" or "pure" ones. Check the back of the pack next time to see for yourself.
Chemically manufactured preservatives. Parabens have been found in breast cancer tumours. Our wipes are made in a highly controlled sterile environment and WaterWipes use grapefruit seed extract as a natural biocide to keep the pack fresh (in case your fingers bring some bacteria to the during the change of baby).
This is grease from animal fur, aka ‘wool fat’. It is used in shoe polish and rust-proof coatings. Needless to say, our WaterWipes don’t have lanolin.
Babies’ skin is ultra thin, why would you want to put alcohol on their skin? Alcohol causes harsh skin sensitisation.
Perfume / Fragrance
It usually implies a mix of ingredients, possibly including phthatates. Babies need cleaning, not perfuming, We don’t use perfume in our wipe as it can inflame baby skin.
They are chemicals used to make plastics more flexible and harder to break. Bisphenol A is the name to watch out for as well as DBP, DEP, DEHP, BzBP, DMP… No thanks!
A widely used range of chemically made preservatives (look for E211 & E212. The UK Food Commission qualified it as " irritant to the skin, eyes and mucous membranes" - They are also linked to cancers and asthma. Not in WaterWipes.
A cancer causing antimicrobial agent (when combined with chlorine). It causes hormone disruption… No, that’s not one for baby’ skin! Or ours for that effect!
