As a new parent, you’ll want to find diapers and wipes that are safe for your little bundle of joy.

The Ingredients

Coterie baby wipes are made with ingredients that are gentle on your baby’s skin, such as vitamin E and glycerin. So, even though our baby wipes are not antibacterial, The Wipe is safe for use on all areas of your baby (external only!).

To make our gentle baby wipes, we use 99% purified water without harsh chemicals or soaps. This is why our baby wipes are highly sought after by parents whose babies have sensitive skin.

Our wipes are also made with 100% plant-based and biodegradable fibers.

Can Baby Wipes Kill Microbes?

Sadly, baby wipes aren’t designed to kill bacteria and other microbes. Most antiseptic and antibacterial properties can be quite harsh on your baby’s delicate skin, so we refrain from adding any antibacterial ingredients to our wipes.

Imagine wiping your baby with wipes that contain disinfecting properties like sodium hypochlorite. These disinfectants are meant for tough surfaces like kitchen cabinets, ceramic boards, and concrete floors–not your baby’s skin. This is where The Wipe comes in.

Staying Ahead of Germs

It’s important to use the right baby wipes when changing diapers. Fortunately, Coterie baby wipes are up to 30% larger than the average wipe, which means you don’t have to use nearly as many to wipe your baby clean when changing their diaper–so you can spend more time snuggling and less time cleaning your baby.

Coterie’s The Wipe has the seal of acceptance from the National Eczema Association, and is also EWG Verified. This means that our baby wipes will be gentle on your baby’s skin, minimizing the risk of irritation and other skin reactions.

Unlike some other baby wipes on the market, Coterie baby wipes don’t contain plastic elements that are known to cause allergic reactions in babies with sensitive skin. Our wipes are also free of more than 200 harsh chemicals found in many other baby products, including phthalates and parabens.
