Did You Know? Choosing natracare natural organic cotton intimate wipes allows you to avoid materials derived from petrochemicals, and skin irritating ingredients such as propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, and formaldehyde releasing preservatives such as imidazolidinyl urea, which is the second most identified cosmetic preservative causing contact dermatitis according to The American Academy of Dermatology.
Almost all wet and dry wipes available today are made from polypropylene (PP) or its cousin polyolefin, materials that are derived from petroleum. The wipes are usually embossed at low temperatures in order to make the wipe appear much thicker than it actually is. In this way, embossed wipes are being sold at a higher price because marketing people determine that the consumer will think it is a better quality wipe because it is thicker, and therefore, is willing to pay more for the privilege of using even more materials that will not biodegrade. It is not how thick a wet wipe pack is that is important to Natracare, but what the wipe is made from and what chemicals it holds that can potentially damage our bodies and the environment.
Many people are now becoming concerned about the long term effects of using products that contain parabens because of the recent findings indicating a potential link to breast cancer . In the 1930’s, scientists developed something that could preserve creams. Synthetic Methyl, Ethyl and Propyl Parabens were developed from benzoic acid. Researchers from the Department of Biology and Biochemistry of Brunel University in the UK have conducted a study and found that once these parabens are in our system, they stay in there. It is estimated that 99% of all cosmetic and body care products contain some form of the paraben preservatives. Other chemicals of concern that are commonly used in feminine wet wipes, as well as baby wipes, include the following: phenoxyethanol, propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol (PEG), sodium lauryl sulphate, isopropyl myristate, and formaldehyde releasing preservatives such as imidazolidinyl urea. For more information about these chemicals, read health and environment issues.

1 out of 1 people would recommend this product05/08/2011, By JenniGreat product! I took these overseas with me on holiday. I find when one is stuck on an aeroplane, etc for longer periods of time, you tend to feel you need to freshen up. I really found this very convenient to use - took them on the plane with me.
They made me feel much fresher but they don't have any 'nasties' in them so didn't irritate the skin (I tend to get thrush if I use anything harsh or perfumed).
Also, the fact that it's a resealable pouch was very helpful.
I even (don't laugh), when I realised I hadn't packed my face cleanser, used one of the wipes to clean my face (also very sensitive skin) and it worked wonders to get off the grime & make up and didn't irritate the skin.
Excellent product - I highly recommend it!
