How do people select which wet wipe products to use? What is the distinction between regular wet wipes, hygienic wipes, and baby wipes?

There are tons of wet wipes on the market, but we need to know first, what is the definition of spunlace nonwoven fabric? Spunlace nonwoven fabric is the optimal product cloth we use for wet wipes. Long fibers and short fibers like cotton, polyester, and viscose are bonded together using industrial technology like thermal or mechanical water processes, not woven.

Wet wipes are classified into wet wipes use for the human body and wet wipes for all other things.

Human Wipes

Wet wipes consumed for the human body are divided into ordinary wet wipes and sanitary wipes. The PH value must be between 3.5-8.5. We only use virgin fibers, not recycled fibrous materials, as raw material for human wet wipes. The purity of the fabric is also a major factor in its result.

Wipes for All Other Things

Wet wipes for objects are categorized into kitchenware wet wipes and sanitaryware wet wipes. There are no special requirements for raw materials and bleaching agents. However, the detergence and specifications relied on usage.

There is a qualified range of ceramic corrosion for wet wipes used for kitchen utensils. Since it is purposely used for metals, it requires certain detergency and corrosivity levels. The wet wipes for sanitary ware also have a different qualified range for ceramic corrosion.

All types of wet wipes need to have shed hair or swarf.

At present, most of the wet wipes on the market are made of nonwoven fabrics as a carrier with RO pure with added ingredients, such as common fungicides, detergents, scents, skincare agents, etc. These determine the high outcome.

The usage outlines are roughly divided into ordinary wet wipes, sanitary wipes, baby wipes, kitchen wipes, etc. Besides, there are also wet toilet papers that are not counted as wet wipes but are similar to wet wipes.

Wet wipe ingredients

The basic cleaning function of ordinary wipes is equivalent to non-fabric + RO pure water + others.

  • Sanitary wipes
Nonwoven fabric + RO pure water + fungicides (benzethonium chloride, benzalkonium chloride, AG + anion, etc.). In addition to the cleaning function, it can sterilize Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans, and Escherichia coli effect.

  • Baby wipes

Nonwoven fabric + RO pure water + skincare agents (glycerin, xylitol, vitamin E, aloe, chamomile essence, etc.). The cleaning function is perfect for infants and children's delicate skin, with nourishing and moisturizing effect.

  • Kitchen wipes

Non-woven fabric + RO pure water + flavor + detergent (alkyl glycosides, anionic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants, etc.). Others used spunlace embossed, with certain decontamination.

  • Wet toilet paper

Similar to sanitary wipes, both are carrier + RO pure water + fungicide + others. The variation is that if the carrier is a nonwoven fabric, it must be decomposed and not blocked when flushed into the toilet. Most wet toilet paper carriers are wood pulp paper, dust-free paper, etc.

Sanitary wipes and baby wipes do not have harmful components like alcohol, preservatives, flavors, fluorescent agents, bleaching agents, formaldehyde, and other irritating ingredients.

Infant wet wipes are also divided into hand-to-mouth wet wipes, special for wiping PP, and general-purpose. Wet wipes that can be used on hand have fewer ingredients and are safer. It does not matter if the baby eats it in the mouth. General wet wipes contain more skincare ingredients.
