Learn how WaterWipes has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, including safeguarding quality and ensuring wipe availability worldwide.

WaterWipes are the world’s purest baby wipes, made with simply two ingredients: 99.9% water and a drop of fruit extract. WaterWipes are hypoallergenic and have no fragrance or sulphates making them suitable for sensitive, newborn, and premature baby’s skin.

Unlike other baby wipes on the market, WaterWipes have been approved by The Skin Health Alliance, Allergy UK, and have been awarded the National Eczema Association of America Seal of Acceptance.

WaterWipes Response to COVID-19

Safeguarding Quality

Our staff are at the heart of everything we do. We are closely following local health guidelines to make sure that we have every possible measure in place to support them. Our wipes are already produced in extremely hygienic conditions, as they are manufactured in clean room conditions. This not only ensures the safety of our staff working on the production line but means we can continue supplying our much-loved wipes during this time to hospitals, healthcare professionals, and parents.

Ensuring Availability

We did see a surge in demand as many people stocked up for fear of not being able to purchase their preferred wipes. As a result, we recruited extra team members and were producing wipes at record levels for a number of months, to ensure that hospitals, healthcare professionals, and everyday parents could continue with their normal routine and requirements, as much as possible.

WaterWipes production increased by half to meet the needs of consumers and clinicians worldwide
During COVID-19, WaterWipes shipped two-fold more wipes from Ireland to the USA

A Wipe You Can Rely On

Wipe of choice in over 220 NICU Units in the USA
Trusted by over 23 Children's Hospitals in the USA
The Skin Health Alliance validates WaterWipes as purer than cotton wool and water

“WaterWipes are important in our bathing protocol for skin care and infection prevention at Advent Health for Children.”

--Kathryn Mikulencak MSN, APRN, PCNS-BC, RNC-NIC, Clinical Nurse Specialist

“We use WaterWipes in our NICU because of the purity and gentleness of the product. We have babies in our unit from 22 weeks gestation to over 6 months and we use it for all of them. Our families appreciate that when we considered a diaper wipe, we looked for a product for use on neonate or that was pH neutral (pH 5.5 – 7), fragrance-free, and contained only a mild preservative.”

--Susan Bowles, DNP, APRN, RNC-NIC, CBC
