WaterWipes, the world’s purest baby wipes participated in the 6
Arab International Paediatric Medical Congress held in Dubai witnessing over 800 professionals. This
event is the region’s biggest platform where experts and key opinion leaders in the field share
experiences and insights into the latest advancements in paediatrics and neonatology. The region’s
premier event attended by leading healthcare professionals promotes quality care for children.
WaterWipes emphasized the sensitivity of baby’s skin and its three primary functions: protection,
regulation and sensation. A baby’s skin is far more delicate and vulnerable than adult skin, requiring
special care and protection. The outer layer of the skin acts as a protective barrier against dehydration,
microorganisms, chemical substances and allergens. Medical professionals across the world recommend
that any topical agents used for bathing and cleansing, should not adversely alter or affect the skin
barrier. Therefore, it is important to select the correct types of product to use on baby skin to prevent
nappy rash and preserve the barrier function.
WaterWipes have been specifically developed to be as mild and pure as cotton wool and water, to help
maintain the important skin barrier function of the stratum corneum, while offering the convenience of a
wipe. The product is made from 99.9% purified water and a drop of fruit extract. These wipes provide safe
cleansing for the most delicate newborn skin and can be used on babies from birth. WaterWipes are so
gentle they can also be used on premature babies.
Taking baby skincare a step further, WaterWipes are alcohol and fragrance free to help reduce the risk of
drying out the skin and the potential development of contact or allergic dermatitis.
WaterWipes are highly recommended by midwives and other healthcare professionals worldwide and
have become the preferred wipe for many Neonatal Intensive Care Units throughout Ireland, the UK, the
US, Australia and New Zealand.
WaterWipes were created by 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.
Pure, gentle and safe for the most delicate skin but in the convenience of a baby wipe, WaterWipes are
made with 99.9% water and a drop of fruit extract. They are a suitable alternative to cotton wool and
water. WaterWipes are the only baby wipe approved by Allergy UK and the French Association for the
Prevention of Allergies as well as to get the National Eczema Association of America’s seal of
acceptance. WaterWipes are recommended by midwives* for nappy rash or skin allergies.
WaterWipes has come a long way in the past seven years. With its headquarters in Ireland and regional
offices around the world, WaterWipes is a global business, selling the World’s Purest Baby Wipes in over
50 countries. WaterWipes is proud to have over 250 talented people working together to bring products to
more and more parents in every corner of the globe.
