In recent years, the growing concern for the environment and the need for sustainable, allergen free alternatives has led to the rise of innovative products. In this blog post, we will explore what ZERO Baby Wipes are, their environmental benefits, their advantages for sensitive skin, and the reduction of plastic usage compared to conventional baby wipes.

What are Zero Baby Wipes?

ZERO Baby Wipes are a new generation of eco-friendly baby wipes designed to minimize waste and reduce environmental impact. They are made from natural, compostable wood pulp with no plastic in the wipe itself, or the packaging. 

The fundamental difference between ZERO wipes, and a traditional wet wipe is that they come dry, and that brings multiple benefits for sensitive skin and the environment. Read on and we will unpack these benefits in detail. 

Environmental Benefits of ZERO Baby Wipes:

One of the significant advantages of ZERO Baby Wipes is their positive impact on the environment. Here's why they are a better choice:


ZERO Baby Wipes are made from biodegradable and sustainably sourced wood pulp, This ensures that they do not leave behind harmful microplastics or contribute to the growing waste problem.

Reduced Waste:

Traditional baby wipes contribute to landfill waste because 90% of all baby wipes contain plastic, and 100% of them are wrapped in plastic. ZERO Baby Wipes are 100% plastic free so they don't contribute to the plastic waste and microplastic problem.

Reduced consumption:

ZERO dry wipes can be washed and reused, reducing our consumption and reducing waste generation significantly. 

Sustainable Sourcing:

Our wipes material is Certified FSC and PEFC sustainably sourced. These standards are independently monitored, and take into consideration not just the sustainable forest management, but the impact of supply chains. Essentially, this means that timber is grown and harvested in a manner that minimizes negative impacts on ecosystems and supports the local communities involved. 

Benefits of ZERO Wipes for sensitive skin and nappy rash:

ZERO Baby Wipes are the preferred choice for babies, toddlers and teenagers with delicate skin. Here's why:


ZERO Baby Wipes are free from harsh chemicals, fragrances, and other additives that can irritate sensitive skin. ZERO wipes help prevent irritation, redness, and rashes that can occur when using conventional wipes that contain artificial fragrances and chemicals.

Soft and Soothing fibers: 

Wipes that contain plastic can be abrasive on delicate areas. The soft fibers of ZERO Baby Wipes have been engineered for sensitive skin and are super soft when applied to skin. 

Proven safe on skin: 

You can have peace of mind knowing that you are using a product that has been specifically developed with sensitivity in mind. ZERO Baby Wipes undergo rigorous testing to ensure they are hypoallergenic and safe for sensitive skin and have been Certified OEKO-TEX Standard 100 safe for baby. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification is an independent test that guarantees products are safe and gentle on children's skin.

Gentle Cleaning and pH-Balanced:

ZERO Baby Wipes provide effective and gentle cleaning without disrupting the delicate pH balance of your baby's skin. The pH-balanced formula helps maintain the natural protective barrier of the skin, reducing the likelihood of skin rashes and irritations. By using ZERO Baby Wipes, you can cleanse your baby's skin thoroughly while minimizing the risk of nappy rash or other skin conditions.

Plastic Reduction in ZERO Baby Wipes:

Plastic waste is a significant environmental concern, and the use of conventional baby wipes is a big contributor to this problem. In the UK and Australia alone, an estimated 15 Billion plastic wet wipes went to landfill in just one year. That's a big waste problem that will likely end up in our waterways, and eventually our bodies in the form of microplastics.

ZERO wipes are a plastic free solution you can trust: Here's why? 

ZERO Plastic fibers: Unlike conventional baby wipes, ZERO Baby Wipes are made from natural, biodegradable material reducing the reliance on plastic fibers. This prevents the release of microplastics into the environment.

Reusability: ZERO Baby Wipes can be washed and reused multiple times, reducing the need for single-use disposable wipes. We do recommend single use for a nappy change, and as needed for good hygiene. But for many many messes that your beautiful baby is going to make, you can simply wipe, rinse and repeat for a more sustainable wipe. 

ZERO plastic sustainable packaging: ZERO Baby Wipes come in a box, not a plastic wrap. 

So, here's the wrap up on ZERO baby wipes.

ZERO Baby Wipes offer a sustainable and gentle alternative to traditional baby wipes. They reduce environmental impact, are better suited for sensitive skin.
