Bamaboo 100% Biodegradable Wipes by Mama Bamboo

What are Bamaboo wipes made from?

Our wipes are entirely made from the softest breathable bamboo fibre and contain no plastic at all.  They are 98% water and plant based ingredients.

What are the ingredients in the wipes?

We are always seeking out better ways to manufacture our products and so we are currently phasing out the use of the last 3 ingredients and replacing them with 2 plant based ingredients:

E211 - Sodium Benzoate

Plant

A food grade preservative to limit bacterial growth

E202 - Potassium Sorbate

Plant

A paraben free alternative stabiliser to prolong shelf life

 

All of our ingredients have been tested and approved for use in pediatric cosmetic products, unlike other plastic wipes available we have to add these preservatives to our wipes to stop them breaking down before they can be used. The plastic versions do not need these as they will not degrade at all; in the packet or for 400 years after use!

Why should I use Bamaboo wipes for my baby?

Bamboo is not only soft on baby’s skin it is naturally antibacterial which reduces the chance of irritation but they are also strong enough to deal with the messiest situations.

Our wipes are made from 100% sustainable bamboo and are 100% biodegradable.  They can be put in compost or food waste bins and will be totally biodegraded in just 6 months.

Not only have we vigorously tested out wipes other parents have too and feedback has been great even for babies and parents with the most sensitive of skin and eczema.  They were also awarded a Made for Mums Bronze award.

Mama Bamboo biodegradable eco nappy comparison
Choosing the best nappy for your baby

March 21, 2020 5 min read

It’s not easy to compare nappies, particularly from an ‘eco’ perspective, so we have done the comparison for you. We’ve stripped out the ‘fluffy’ descriptions, to give you the comparable facts - what materials are used in the nappies and how biodegradable they are – we’ve even checked what packaging is used.

We're so proud to be a friend of the Bamboo Village and be carbon neutral!

In January 2018 we began a 9-month journey to research, design and launch an eco-friendly range of disposable nappies and wipes. One year on from launching Mama Bamboo, we are 'mummies on a mission' - we want to raise awareness of what standard disposable nappies are doing to our planet and push councils to do the right thing with nappy waste.
