WaterWipes were created by our 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 and gentle for the most delicate skin but in the convenience of a baby wipe, WaterWipes are the next best thing to cotton wool and water.
Every day, parents around the world are discovering the benefits of our gentle and effective WaterWipes for their baby’s skin, we hope you like them too.
We've come along way in the past seven years, but we still act with the same entrepreneurial spirit and determination to find a better way. With our headquarters in Drogheda, Ireland and regional offices around the world, we are now a global business, selling the World's Purest Baby Wipes in over 50 countries. We are proud to have over 250 talented people working together to bring our products to more and more parents in every corner of the globe.
Our business is built on innovation and developing new product ideas is what drives us forward. We have great ambitions to expand our range by using our unique water technology and process to create new products that clean and care for what is most precious to our consumers, using as few ingredients as possible.
To make the world’s purest baby wipes, we use as few ingredients as possible and a unique 7 stage water purification process that offers a deeper and more effective clean compared to standard tap water or boiled, cooled tap water. All WaterWipes contain is 99.9% water and a drop of fruit extract to act as a natural skin conditioner.
Please dispose of WaterWipes responsibly. Wipes should never be flushed.
At WaterWipes we pride ourselves on making the world’s purest baby wipe for newborn and sensitive skin. We fully understand that we also have responsibility to help protect the planet your little one will inherit. We previously made a commitment to having a 100% biodegradable solution without compromising on the purity of our product in 2020. Unfortunately the COVID-19 situation has caused many issues with supply chains due to the unprecedented demands placed on them. Because of this, we’re sadly not going to be able to bring our customers biodegradable wipes until 2021. We are disappointed that we can’t bring you a sustainable option sooner, but we will continue to work closely with our suppliers during these unprecedented times, so you and your little ones can enjoy our biodegradable WaterWipes as soon as possible.
The terms flushable and biodegradable are often used interchangeably, but they are very different. No wipes, including biodegradable wipes, should be flushed. Often, even flushable wipes take time to break down in our sewer systems. Disposing of wipes with the household rubbish is the best way to help protect our environment.
