about WaterWipes.

where it all began.

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, gentle and safe 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 safe WaterWipes for their baby’s skin, we hope you like them too.

our process.

"As pure and gentle as cotton wool and water but as convenient as a baby wipe"

To make the world’s purest baby wipes, we use as few ingredients as possible and a technical process that alters the structure of water to make the molecules even smaller, making it an even more effective cleanser.

Our wipes are clinically sterile, totally pure and gentle, without the nasties.

All WaterWipes contain is 99.9% water and a drop of fruit extract to act as a natural skin conditioner.

Our environmental pledge

Please dispose of WaterWipes responsibly. Wipes should never be flushed.

The science behind a biodegradable wipe is complex. Wipes made from natural fibres like bamboo or cotton mostly need to be treated with chemicals in order to stay bacteria free.

Working out how to produce a biodegradable wipe without adding chemicals is the number one priority for our business. We’re already testing different materials and have set ourselves a deadline of 2023, but expect to crack the science long before then.
