Huggies Natural Care Wipes Review

0 comment

Grippy | Cloth-Like Feel | Mild Potential Skin Irritant 

Easy to buy just about anywhere, and totally fine for all but the most sensitive of bottoms, Huggies Natural Care wipes are similar to Pampers Sensitive wipes, but contain an EWG 4 ingredient which seems a bit careless.

Things We Love

  • Chemical and Fragrance-Free: Alcohol-free. Paraben-free. Fragrance-free. 
  • Soft and Grippy: Super soft wipes with grip to help get bums (and faces and hands and other things) clean.
  • Super Affordable: At two cents per wipe, this is a great option if you use wipes liberally or are on a tight budget.

Things We Don't Love As Much

  • Known (Mild) Skin Irritant: Huggies Natural Care wipes contain malic acid (pH balancer), polysorbate 20 (surfacant), tocopheryl acetate (skin conditioning agent), sodium benzoate (preservative), all of which are a 3 or 4 (malic acid) on the EWG Skin Deep database. Many of these ingredients seem unnecessary. 
  • Greenwashing: There's nothing particularly “natural” about these wipes, which contain several skin-irritating ingredients. They are not made with any special “green” ingredients, nor are they compostable (and therefore they go to landfill where they will not decompose).
