WaterWipes, the World’s purest baby wipe, donates free WaterWipes packs to families of premature and sick babies in NZ.

As part of the partnership with The Neonatal Trust (New Zealand), WaterWipes packs are being donated to families with premature or sick babies. WaterWipes and the Neonatal Trust are working together to help raise awareness of the potentially harmful chemicals in other baby wipes. WaterWipes are manufactured by Irish Breeze, an Irish company which has been manufacturing cotton wool and personal hygiene products since 1993.

Irish Breeze spent several years researching and testing, in conjunction with internationally renowned microbiologists and toxicologists, to develop the perfect baby wipe. The result is WaterWipes – a revolutionary new product in the baby wipes market.

Few parents realise that there are chemicals in baby wipes – but they should. It’s their right to know what they’re actually using on their baby. They could be cleaning their baby’s delicate skin up to 20 times a day with wipes containing harsh chemical ingredients. We want to raise awareness of this issue and we’re calling it “The Great Bottom Campaign”.

As part of this campaign, WaterWipes is providing the Trust with a supply of WaterWipes for the Trust to distribute to parents in their NICUs (Neonatal Intensive Care Units). Parents around NZ can help that support by clicking on ‘Like’ on WaterWipes NZ Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/WaterWipesNZ. So tell family and friends to get clicking and help make a difference to our little miracles!

Andrea Hawes, Marketing Manager for the Distributors, reports that sales in the last 4 months have quadrupled due to overwhelming support from Health Professionals and discerning new mums who care for their babies and go out of their way to avoid any type of chemicals on new born skin.

WaterWipes are for sale in over 140 stores including Countdown, selected New World and Pak ‘n’ Save supermarkets, Fresh Choice and Super Value Stores as well as Online.
