WaterWipes are pure baby wipes, made in Ireland with just 99.9 per cent purified water and a drop of fruit extract. The pure baby wipes offer all the benefits of cotton wool and cooled boiled water, as recommended by midwives. They are extra soft, strong and absorbent, with a clean, fresh non-greasy feel. WaterWipes provide the gentlest cleaning of baby’s skin possible. They are safe to use on premature babies skin and are used in many hospitals and neonatal units around Australia. WaterWipes can also be used for make-up removal.
Available from Coles, Woolworths, Chemist Warehouse, Priceline, selected pharmacies and online.
WaterWipes are the world’s purest baby wipes. WaterWipes are the only baby wipes to contain absolutely no chemical additives so they are safe to use on delicate newborn babies’ skin. Made with just two natural ingredients – 99.9 per cent water and 0.1 per cent grapefruit seed extract – WaterWipes are as pure as cotton wool and water but in the convenience of a wipe.
A baby’s skin is much more delicate than adult skin, so it should be cleaned with only the gentlest and purest elements possible. WaterWipes are a fresh, natural product that contains just two ingredients – 99.9 per cent water and 0.1 per cent grapefruit seed extract – so they are suitable for use on newborn babies’ skin.
Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) is a natural skin conditioner. WaterWipes contain one part GSE to 1000 parts water (i.e. 0.1 per cent).

No. We recommend you do not flush any wipes (even if they state on the pack that they are flushable).
Yes. When a baby is born, its skin is much thinner than an adult’s and therefore more delicate.
