The wet wipe manufacturing industry was created in 2004. Immediately, this cleaning tool became a widespread phenomenon and widespread presence in families with young children. 2007, wet wipes are officially introduced into Vietnam. Like other advanced countries in the world, this product is widely accepted by consumers -  which is considered the "revolution" in baby care because of the outstanding characteristics that it brings to the customer. - mothers and babies, especially newborns.

SUPERIOR FEATURES OF WET WIPES

The reason for wet wipes invention is not simply to clean dirt, but clean BACTERIA - the standard of cleaning. And that is also the most outstanding feature of wet wipes compared to traditional sanitary tools (such as face towel, cloth towel, towel ... washing, several times washing, have the ability to accumulate bacteria - the main cause of dermatitis.

At present, many mothers have a habit of using dry tissues for babies or using wet cotton - wool, which is thought to be clean and safe for children. However, this practice is not scientific and is a backwards step. If only cleaned with water, the mother only clean dirt (visible stains). The physical cleansing with invisible bacteria is the highest level of proper hygiene and skin care.

In addition, the young skin’s acid membrance is very thin, imature, which promotes the growth of the corneum and prevents the invasion of pathogenic microorganisms. In order to have proper hygiene and skin care, the mother needs to thoroughly examine the water source because it directly affects the skin of the baby.

At birth, the pH of the skin falls between 6.5 and 7, but continues to decrease to around 5.5 after a few days, weeks or months. If the pH balance is broken, it will cause a series of skin diseases. For example, the pH is at 6 - the child may have a headache, pyoderma. At level 7 - eczema appears, at level 8 - causes anal itching, level 9 - intermittent. Maintaining a pH of 5.2 to 5.5 helps develop the corneum shell, preventing dehydration and helping to protect against bacterial invasion. This explains why maintaining and balancing the physiological pH of the skin is so important.

EPA - The US Environmental Protection Agency demonstrates that regular tap water pH can be as high as 8.5; distilled water can range from 6.5 to 7.0. Meanwhile, according to a study at the NICU - the United States Organization for the Care of Newborns, wet wipes (if produced from 99.9% purified water from EDI) does not only have pH from 4.5 to 5.5 lower than tap water but also helps to protect the skin's acid membrane. Therefore, it can be concluded that wet wipes have superior skin care characteristics compared to conventional cleaning methods.

Because the amount of minerals is controled, micronutrients and heavy metals in the skin's water supply - ensures physiological pH balance and protects the acid membrane, with biopsy technology by ultraviolet rays, Wet wipes are 100% safe and should be used for babies. Mothers can be assured of using a wet wipes for babies.
