Choosing the right wipe for your baby
The best baby wipe for Nappy Rash
When your baby’s skin is already damaged or sensitive, it can be hard to know whats the best baby wipe to turn to. Which is why we created our Terra Manuka Honey Baby Wipes, allowing one of nature’s most powerful healers to take care of delicate skin and nappy rash naturally.
Manuka honey’s antibacterial properties are what set it apart from traditional honey. Methylglyoxal is its active ingredient and likely responsible for its strong antibacterial effects. Manuka honey also has antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, and in 2007 was approved by the US FDA as an option for wound treatment. Honey helps to maintain a moist wound environment and protective barrier, which prevents microbial infections in the wound. A recent two-week study investigated the effects of applying a manuka honey dressing on 40 people with non-healing wounds. The results showed that 88% of the wounds decreased in size. Moreover, it helped create an acidic wound environment, which favours wound healing.
Nappy rash is unpleasant enough for delicate baby skin, but it’s an area that requires frequent cleaning. While other baby wipes contain alcohol and harsh chemicals that can further dry out and damage skin, our Manuka Honey Baby wipes not only provide a very mild and gentle touch to sore skin, they also leave a natural protective barrier to reduce further damage. Now, you can cleanse, protect and heal your baby’s skin with the best baby wipe.
The best baby wipe for everyday use
After two years spent studying and testing, we found the answer to taking care of your baby’s skin lay in the simplest of solutions – water. Except we knew that it would have to be water like no other, and so began our hunt for the most pure H20 in the world.
It makes sense that water, being the essence of life, makes up more than 90% of the liquid in our wipes. But we knew that to be effective, the water must be clean, pure and naturally enriched with minerals.
We didn’t have to look far. Isolated water sources in New Zealand’s untouched environment, with its diverse natural landscape, would be where we found the most pristine and pure water with an unrivalled mineral composition. Here, where water flows direct from mountains and sparkling glacial lakes, free from pollution and chemical contamination, is where we would discover the perfect foundation for our wipes, allowing us to create the world’s most pure hydrating wipes, naturally.
The best baby wipe for sensitive skin
With extensive research, we selected naturally protective goat’s milk as our ingredient of choice for our deeply moisturising baby wipes.
This decision came down to its natural ability to replenish and care for skin like few other ingredients can. Goat’s milk is full of vital minerals that are readily absorbed by the skin. Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue or nappy rash, and maintain healthy skin.
Goat’s milk has also historically been used to offer relief to those suffering from skin conditions like acne and eczema. That’s owed in some part to the exfoliating qualities mentioned above, as well as its excellent antibacterial properties.
A unique fatty molecule works to inhibit the growth of microbial organisms that act as a catalyst for those troublesome skin concerns, while the cream in goat’s milk makes for an excellent moisturizer to soothe and rejuvenate the skin, giving it a powerful anti-inflammatory quality.
One of the best things about goat’s milk- and really any skincare product that is truly natural – isn’t just about how it can improve your skin, but also what it can’t harm. At the very core, goat’s milk offers a moisturising, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, nourishing (take a breath here), repairing and revitalising treatment that doesn’t carry with it any of the negative effects.
With all these natural benefits, we believe the goat’s milk our baby wipes contain is the ideal choice for those who have extremely delicate skin. But don’t just take our word on it. We’ve undertaken the sensitive skin test with German Dermatest and received “excellent” on the sensitive skin trial, proving that our Terra Goat Milk Baby Wipes are the most gentle yet effective solution for cleaning, moisturising and protecting your baby’s skin.
