What it does: Tea tree oil is a natural antibacterial agent with broad-spectrum antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. It has a significant effect on preventing microbial growth in wet wipes.
Pros: Tea tree oil is derived from the Australian Camellia sinensis tree and is generally considered to be less irritating to the skin while being excellent at preventing microbial contamination.
Precautions: Although tea tree oil is a natural ingredient, it may cause allergies in some cases. Therefore, it is best to conduct a sensitivity test before use, especially for sensitive groups such as infants.
What it does: Parabens are a class of preservatives widely used in cosmetics and skin care products that have antibacterial and antifungal properties that help extend the shelf life of products.
Pros: Parabens are safe in the vast majority of cases, and for baby wipes, lower concentrations of parabens are usually needed to ensure product safety.
Precautions: Because some studies have shown that parabens may be related to hormone levels, you may want to be careful when choosing one, especially for babies with special health conditions.
Function: Phenoxyethanol is a common preservative and antibacterial agent that has a good inhibitory effect on bacteria and mold.
Pros: Phenoxyethanol is widely regarded as a less skin-irritating antibacterial agent and is often used in baby products in relatively low concentrations to ensure safety.
Precautions: Although phenoxyethanol is widely used in skin care products, it may cause allergies in some cases. Sensitivity testing is recommended before use.
Function: Bromodiphenol is an ionic surfactant that has strong antibacterial effects on a variety of microorganisms.
Advantages: Bromodiphenols have strong ability to act as a broad-spectrum antibacterial agent and are often used in products requiring high hygiene standards.
