What's In My Baby's Wipes?

When it comes to changing time, a gentle clean makes all the difference. Developed based on years of expertise in skin care and baby products, Pampers wipes are designed to be mild and effective, and are dermatologically tested. Research shows that Pampers baby wipes help maintain healthy-looking skin, and are milder than cotton wool and water on baby’s skin.
