WARNING! BABY WIPES Ecstasy 2 kids; 1 angel baby; Perth, WA, Australia 7757 posts

Several brands of baby wipes have been pulled off the shelves in New Zealand & we think Australia may be doing the same shortly if the chemical Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate. IPBC is found harmful enough to be banned...



Please read mamas!!



For the health of your LO/S!

My regular wipes don't contain this, but a few packets i grab when i'm running low do, so i won't be using those from now on.



Please check your packets for the chemical Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate. IPBC

I cant stand huggies!



I just check the packaging from now on, luckily my bulk box ($9 for 6 x 80) dont contain the chemical.

It's bad for them to inhale it. Not dangerous if only used for diaper changes, but a lot of parents use baby wipes on hands and face too.

It is an allergen, its often used in wood preserver etc... Basically its toxic if inhaled.



How many times have mamas grabbed a wipe while out & about to clean up a runny nose/messy face?! Dangerous!




I don't understand why they have to use it in baby products!?!?!



Stupid people!

So should I still use the ones I have but only for diaper changes or get new ones?

Check the packaging mama :)



If it contains the chemical just make sure to use the wipes on your LO's bottom only or switch to a brand that doesn't contain it.



At the moment in NZ huggies were the only wipes on the shelves (i don't know which ones to be exact) so i'm guessing they are 'safe'
