Frequently Asked Questions – Baby Wipes

Customers love Simpleaf baby wipes because they are made with the high quality standards in an environmentally conscious way, perfect for the sensitive skin of babies. Here are a few questions that get asked about baby wipes. If you have any questions that aren’t addressed here, please feel free to contact us.

Can you use baby wipes on your face?
Absolutely! Simpleaf baby wipes are made with soothing Aloe Vera, and they never contain any alcohol or parabens, which makes them perfect for sensitive areas such as baby’s skin or a face. Perfect for freshening up during the day or cleaning up at the end of the day, these baby wipes work great on your face. Baby wipes provide a gentle clean that you may not be able to get from other types of wipes.

Can you use baby wipes to remove makeup?
While baby wipes are not specifically designed to remove makeup, they can definitely help you clean up at the end of the day. Cleansing wipes that are often used for makeup removal contain specific chemicals that help to break down the makeup, but many women prefer the more natural treatment of a baby wipe when washing off their face. While you may need to wipe a little more with a baby wipe, they are a safe and effective way to remove makeup at the end of the night.

Can you use baby wipes on pets?
Pet owners love our Simpleaf baby wipes, as they provide an easy way to clean pets and keep them fresh! One of the reasons they are so good for pets is that they are made of premium quality materials, making them durable whether they are used to wipe down a human or a pet. They are also larger than our competitors wipes, so you need to use fewer with each use. Whether they’ve been rolling around in dirt or simply need a cleanup, our baby wipes help keep pets cleaner, and remove any odors or dust they might have picked up throughout their busy day.

Are baby wipes biodegradable?
Most baby wipes are not biodegradable, which can cause major problems for sewage systems and for the environment. In addition to filling up landfills, many wipes can clog sewers when they are flushed down the toilet, as they are made with plastic fibers that do not easily break down. However, Simpleaf wipes are made to be flushed and to be biodegradable, meaning they will naturally break down. This is great for you, because you can throw them away or flush them down the toilet without any worry about what they will do in the future.

Do flushable wipes breakdown?
This is something that can vary by brand, but you can flush Simpleaf wipes with confidence knowing that they will breakdown and dissolve in water. Unfortunately, many wipes that say they are flushable do not easily break down, causing environmental harm in the future. It’s important to find a company that makes environmental stewardship an important and integral part of their business, so that you can have complete trust in the product you are using.

Do baby wipes expire?
Many wipes contain notes on the back of the packaging which indicates their shelf-life. However, if your wipes do not say, the general rule is that many wipes can last for around two years if they are not opened, and about 3 months if they are open. It’s important keep the pack closed to keep them as moist as possible, which helps extend their life cycle.

When were baby wipes invented?
Baby wipes were most likely invented some time during the 1950s, as travel became more common and with it, the need to clean up on the go. One of the first companies to have a hand in baby wipes was called Nice-Pak, which made a type of wipe with a scented skin cleanser. By the 1990s, most large retail super stores had their own brand of wipes, along with baby industry companies such as Huggies and Procter & Gamble.

How many wipes does a baby use in a year?
The answer is – it depends. Many factors can influence how many baby wipes your baby might use in a year, ranging from how liberal you are when using them to clean up messes, to the baby’s age, to what type of messes you are cleaning up with wipes, to how messy your baby tends to get. In general, the higher quality the wipe, the fewer you will need to use.

Our Simpleaf wipes are thicker and larger than other leading wipes, meaning you will need less to clean up even big messes. This can help you cut down and waste and experience money savings

How do I keep baby wipes moist?
If baby wipes are not kept moist, they will become unusable, costing you money and forcing you to go through more wipes. Every time you finish using wipes, be sure to seal the packaging back up. This will not only extend their lifespan, but also keep them more effective when you do use them.
