    ^^ Ingredients in Pampers Sensitive wipes. From what I can tell, your ingredient list while unpronounceable isn't too uncommon. I'd use them.

  • Well, it's a long way from my mouth so.............??? Yea for me. But for the baby I usually buy unscented or sensitive & they have less dangerous chemicals.

  • Most of the stuff in there is actually preservatives to keep the wipes themselves from getting moldy.

  • We use water- dd's skin is pretty sensitive, and water has far fewer potential irritants.
