We were inspired by you, our customers.
You told us what you like and don’t like about baby wipes, and we were inspired to make a better product. We chose our manufacturer, Nice-Pak, because of their 50+ years of expertise with wipes. We combined their know-how with your wipes wish list to build a fantastic baby wipe through development efforts, multiple prototypes, lab tests, and home testing by parents. The result is a baby wipe that’s truly designed for you—it’s soft enough for a newborn, but sturdy enough to get the job done.
Where It’s From
Pharmaceutical-grade purified water makes up at least 98.3% of the liquid found in Amazon Elements Baby Wipes. The process starts with drinking water from the underground White Lick Creek Aquifer in Mooresville, Indiana. After the water is collected, it’s purified in several stages—sedimentation, charcoal filtration, deionization, and ultraviolet disinfection. The end result? A wipe that’s safe and gentle on a baby’s sensitive skin.
The aloe for Amazon Elements Baby Wipes is grown in the sunny city of Melbourne on Florida’s Atlantic coast. The company produces a variety of aloe extracts, powders, gels, and more—along with a little organic shea butter on the side. The aloe is harvested every six to eight weeks, by hand-selecting fresh leaves from the base of each plant. It’s then processed within two hours to ensure its active molecules don’t begin to break down, which helps preserve aloe’s ability to moisturize.
Amazon Elements Baby Wipes are made in Mooresville, Indiana by the wet-wipe experts at Nice-Pak Products, Inc.—a family-owned company since their founding in 1957. The baby wipes are produced in a zero-landfill plant: waste is recycled, and the remainder is converted to steam heat. The recyclable lid on the flip-top pack can go straight to the recycling bin—helping Nice-Pak reduce plastic use by 36% per year compared to their previous lid. We’re proud to have teamed up with them to deliver your wipes.
