Wet wipes are now an indispensable artifact for Bao Ma to bring her baby. In the face of the dazzling wet wipes brands on the market, how to choose the wet wipes suitable for the baby?
Let me first mention the current status of domestic wet wipes.
Domestic wet wipes standards are relatively backward. You can refer to the wet wipes standard "GB/T 27728-2011" and the sanitary standard for disposable sanitary products "GB 15979-2002". The former only requires materials, tension, packaging labels, etc. The latter only made hygienic requirements for the number of colonies. Therefore, the quality of domestic wet wipes is uneven. Even the products called baby wipes have various safety problems such as shoddy products, the use of recycled fabrics, inferior irritating preservatives, and sanitary conditions that are not up to standard.
Then talk about the important components of general wet wipes: fabric + liquid.
It refers to the main part of the wet wipes. Common wet wipes are called non-woven fabrics. It should be noted here that non-woven fabrics only represent craftsmanship. "Spunlace non-woven fabrics are sprayed high-pressure fine water jets onto one or more layers of fiber webs to make the fibers entangled with each other, so that the webs can be reinforced and have a certain strength. The resulting fabric is the spunlace non-woven fabric. . Its fiber raw materials have a wide range of sources, which can be polyester, nylon, polypropylene, viscose fiber, chitin fiber, superfine fiber, tencel, silk, bamboo fiber, wood pulp fiber, seaweed fiber, etc." (quoted from Baidu Encyclopedia)
The common non-woven fabrics used in the production of wet wipes are generally polyester + viscose (man-made fibers) blends, because viscose fibers are extracted from plant fibers and have the characteristics of natural fibers, such as water absorption and environmental protection. However, the cost of viscose fiber is much higher than that of polyester, so the content of viscose fiber determines the cost of the fabric. The lower end of the wet wipes, the higher the polyester content, poor moisture, poor softness, and poor environmental protection.
High-end wet wipes generally use pure man-made fibers or pure cotton. Since the price of pure cotton non-woven fabric is the highest, it is generally less used for wet wipes. It is known that pure cotton wet wipes are being made in the cotton era, but due to the cost, the general size and thickness are relatively small. In actual use, the cost performance is not high.
At present, there are some businesses on the market that use man-made fibers to pretend to be cotton. This situation is more common in cotton soft towels.

The preparation of wet wipes generally contains: water + preservatives + other additives
Water, as everyone knows, general wet wipes use filtered pure water. In order to save costs, some manufacturers use ordinary filtered water, better RO pure water, and better EDI pure water.
Because wet wipes require long-term storage, preservatives are generally added to the water. Therefore, preservatives have become the hardest hit area for wet wipes. 90% of domestic wet wipes are using inferior irritating preservatives, the most common methyl isothiazolinone (MIT), methyl chloroisothiazolinone ( CIT), etc., because of its low cost and high efficiency, it is widely used in various wet wipes, including all kinds of baby wipes. However, because of its irritation, there will be obvious irritation to the tongue when rubbing the mouth, while rubbing the eyes will irritate the eyes. Do not try to clean your hands, mouth, and eyes with this kind of wipes, especially for babies.
At present, the European Union, the United States, Canada and other countries have included human wet wipes into cosmetics for supervision, and Canada has also managed disinfection wipes as an over-the-counter drug. On April 1, 2016, the "Ministry of Health and Welfare" in Taiwan also issued an announcement that from June 1, 2017, baby wipes will be included in the management of cosmetics. In cosmetics, it is strictly prohibited to use the above-mentioned MIT/CIT and other preservatives that cannot be imported.
Generally, in order to emphasize the functionality of wet wipes, other essential oils or spices are added. The first is to highlight the selling point of the product, and the second important function is to cover up the smell of the liquid. Therefore, the wet wipes generally used by babies are best for odorless, and the less added, the safer. Generally, wet wipes with a strong fragrance are usually made of preservatives that are strong in their irritation.
The above is the current situation of domestic wet wipes and the general basic knowledge of wet wipes. Below we will make a simple evaluation and comparison of selected 10 common baby wipes on the market. The brands are: Pigeon, Goodbaby, Babycare, Shun Shun Er, nuk, kub, Simba the Lion King, Cotton Age, October Crystal, Zichu. Among them, Shun Shun Er is a pack of 70 draws, and the others are a pack of 80 draws.
In this evaluation, we will start with these eleven aspects, which are: whole package weight, whole package height, leaflet area, price, material, leaflet production density, tensile strength, leaflet moisture content, whether to draw continuously , Aluminum film, fluorescent agent, additives (preservative)
