WaterWipes® was founded by a concerned Dad, Edward McCloskey. The following quote by Mr. McCloskey details how WaterWipes® originated:
“When our first daughter was born, she suffered with sensitive skin and developed bad nappy rash. I wanted to find out why, so I took a look at the ingredients in the baby wipes we were using. I was shocked to learn just how many chemicals were in them- and questioned should be putting them on her delicate skin? I thought there had to be a better way so I set about creating a purer, natural and safe alternative. Many years later and after a lot of hard work, testing, and scientific research, the perfect baby wipes, WaterWipes were born. As pure and gentle as cotton wool and water but as convenient as a baby wipe. Every day, in every corner of the world, new mums and dads are discovering the benefits of chemical-free, gentle and safe WaterWipes for their baby’s skin. I hope you like them too.”
