Baby wipes have become an essential part of daily life for many families. As their use has expanded with time, Pampers Baby Wipes have been continually improved to meet changing consumer needs, with notable advances in skin health features.
Gentle Care for Diapered Skin
The skin around baby’s diaper area is regularly exposed to wetness, urine, and poop. Additionally, this skin has more folds and creases than other areas, which can make it difficult to clean thoroughly. This is a major factor in why most babies experience at least one case of diaper rash.
Effective prevention and treatment of diaper rash requires frequent changings and cleansing to remove urine and fecal enzymes from the skin, application of creams, superabsorbent disposable diapers like Pampers, and the use of gentle wipes like Pampers Baby Wipes to thoroughly clean the skin at each changing.
Gentle, effective cleansing can help to interrupt the diaper rash cycle by removing skin contaminants and restoring the skin pH level.
While water and washcloth are often seen as the gold standard for cleansing, it is important to note that water can’t remove oily substances from the skin easily, and water alone is incapable of providing pH-buffering action.
In fact, water can negatively impact skin physiology over time and does not provide an advantage over other cleansing methods such as use of baby wipes. In addition, if washcloths or sponges are used, they can create too much friction against baby’s skin, or can reintroduce skin contaminants if they are reused before washing.
