Five Best Baby Wipes Brands in India | Arhum’s Favorite Baby Wipes

Looking for the best baby wipes brands in India? You are the right place…

As a mom, I cannot imagine raising my son “Arhum” without baby wipes. They are an essential part of his toiletries and I need them at every minute! Literally, I cannot imagine not having them in my life. I know it is best to use lukewarm water and a cotton cloth to clean baby bottom. But you cannot always do so.

On top of that, the weather is quite cold for a two months baby in India. I wash Arhum’s bottom only once a day. So, the rest of times, my savior are wet wipes. They are a true blessing, a necessity and of course, so convenient. After all, they help me clean my baby’s mess, face and body and serve a lot of other different purposes.

As a product reviewer, I am always looking forward to trying new brands, latest launches, most recent technologies used in manufacturing, effective ingredients, creative packaging, meaningful purpose and other innovative things. And as a mother, my hunt for promising and safe baby products is never ending. I also think that it is a part of my job to let other mothers pick what is best for their babies.

When something is so useful for moms to clean their babies head to heel, it is important that they make a wise selection. So, here I am with my most favorite baby wipes brands in India.

What Has Been My Criteria to Select the Best Baby Wipes?

While trying and testing baby wipes, my criteria to list them as the best is to find ones which are:

  • Biodegradable
  • Non-toxic
  • Soft
  • Reasonably priced
  • Durable

Some of the other things that are important are:

  • Size of the wipes
  • Packaging
  • Ingredients list

It is best to select wipes which have a good size so that one or two are enough per nappy change. Another important thing is the ingredients list. As a mother, I cannot afford to take any risk with my child’s skin and overall health. I always look for an effective and safe ingredients list.

I make sure that the wipes I use for Arhum do not have harmful ingredients such as alcohol, parabens, silicones, sulphates, phthalates, fragrances, petrochemicals, chlorine, dyes, triclosan, soap, lanolin etc. Another extremely harmful ingredient is Phenoxyethanol, a preservative used for the prevention of bacterial growth in certain products.

The Hunt for the Best Baby Wipes Brands in India Begins

Based on my two months of experience as a mom, here is my compilation of 5 Best Baby Wipes Brands in India. I have used all five of them and have arranged them in order of my liking. You will always find the top two in my home!

Without wasting more time, here goes my compilation of the best baby wipes brands in India:

1. Mother Sparsh 99% Pure Water Wipes

Cost:

Rs. 299 for 72 Wipes

Size:

150 mm x 200 mm

Availability:

Official Website, First Cry, Amazon, Flipkart

My Thoughts:

While compiling the list of best baby wipes, I cannot think of anyone else on number one. For me and Arhum, it has to be Mother Sparsh! I am sure you would have not tried anything like this ever before. These are the thickest yet the most gentle baby wipes available in India. I had previously used Mother Sparsh 98% Pure Water Wipes on Arhum and loved it.

When I came across this new variant of Mother Sparsh wipes, i.e. Mother Sparsh 99% Pure Water Wipes, trust me, I never looked back! The 99% variant is even more amazing. These baby wipes come in two packs, i.e. regular and travel size. I love the fact that they have a plastic lid which helps preventing moisture loss.

These wipes are extra gentle and extra thick just as claimed. They are completely unscented, hence, very safe and ideal for use on the baby’s tender and sensitive skin. When I use these wipes, I can feel the pureness going on! A single wipe is more than enough to wipe off even the biggest messes.

For usage on Arhum’s face or body, I literally have to tear one wipe into two pieces because half a wipe is more than enough. Trust me when I say this, the fabric of these wipes is so good quality and amazing. When I tear a wipe, I feel like I have a pure cotton or muslin cloth in hands.

It doesn’t look like the regular, porous baby wipes fabric. It is nothing but a velvet-soft, medical grade cloth. To sum up, when I have Mother Sparsh 99% Pure Water Wipes in my hands, I have quality I am extremely sure of. I will not list these wipes as expensive because they have an unmatchable quality. If you prioritize purity, gentleness and thickness in a baby wipe without thinking about the cost price, you must go for these.

Pros:

  • Made up of 99% water, hence completely pure
  • Plant derived, 3x thicker, velvet-soft, medical grade cloth
  • Very thick
  • Unscented
  • Plastic lid packaging available
  • Extremely gentle
  • Large size and thick quality to wipe off most of the mess in a single go
  • Come in two packs
  • 0% Parabens, alcohols, phthalates, sulfates, fragrances, petrochemicals, chlorine, dyes, triclosan
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Dermatologically tested
  • pH balanced

Cons:

  • Only available offline in Delhi and Tamil Nadu

2. Snuggles Baby Wipes

Cost:

Rs. 129 for 72 Wipes

Size:

150 mm x 200 mm

Availability:

Amazon

My Thoughts:

Amongst all the famous brands in this list, I guess this is a relatively lesser known brand. Snuggles Baby Wipes are the softest wipes I’ve ever seen. They’re very light and soft, yet great quality. Physically, they are completely opposite to Mother Sparsh 99% Pure Water Wipes. Well, I am not not here to make a comparison but we’ll do it later on for sure.

These baby wipes have a very mild, floral scent to them but I have been using them regularly ever since Arhum’s birth. I have not noticed any sort of irritation or itching on his sensitive skin in any way. They’re really gentle on Arhum’s bum and large enough to wipe off most of the mess in a single go. They are literally so soft that my baby keeps on sleeping without getting disturbed while I do the cleaning stuff.

As they are not thick, I have to use multiple wipes but I cannot ask for more. On the days when Arhum needs a frequent diaper change, these wipes come in so handy and affordable. I just wish that the packaging was better. Plastic lids are simply the best for baby wipes but the Snuggles Baby Wipes only have a resealable sticker. If you are looking for something very safe, promising and affordable, you should go for these.

Pros:

  • Enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E
  • Very soft and gentle
  • Great size
  • pH balanced
  • Mild, floral smell
  • Cause no irritation
  • Available on huge discounts online (you can get them for as low as Rs. 60 per pack of 72 wipes)
  • Pure water based
  • Alcohol, soap and paraben free
  • Very wet

Cons:

  • Only available online
  • Scented
  • No lid packaging

3. Himalaya Gentle Baby Wipes

Cost:

Rs. 70 for 12 Wipes, Rs. 79 for 24 Wipes, Rs. 135 for 48 Wipes, Rs. 184 for 72 Wipes

Size:

15 cm x 21 cm

Availability:

Amazon

My Thoughts:

Himalaya has been a promising brand ever since its existence and no surprise; it does a great job with its baby care range too. My cousin gifted “Himalaya Herbal Babycare Gift Pack” to Arhum wherein we got to try these wipes for him. I think these wipes are perfect for daily use due to their wide range of packs, reasonable price and availability.

When I run out of the first two wipes and need to get a pack urgently, I opt for these because they are so easily available and pretty good quality. They are mildly scented due to their key ingredients but there is no strong fragrance. These wipes also do not cause any rashes or irritation on Arhum’s skin.

They are enriched with the goodness of Himalaya baby lotion. Hence, they impart the goodness of protective oils to the baby’s skin. They are meant for normal skin type, so if your baby has an extremely delicate or sensitive skin, you might not want to use it.

These wipes contain herbal extracts and natural ingredients which make them a safe choice but please take care if you baby is allergic to natural ingredients. If you are looking for some reasonably priced, natural baby wipes with moisturizing properties, I think Himalaya Gentle Baby Wipes would be a great choice for you.

Pros:

  • Available in many packs
  • Free from alcohol, silicones, paraben and lanolin
  • Enriched with Aloe Vera and Indian Lotus extracts
  • Extra soft fabric for mild cleaning of the baby skin
  • Pure, safe and gentle on skin
  • Easily available locally
  • Contain moisturizing properties
  • 100% herbal actives
  • Clinically tested
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Anti bacterial and anti inflammatory properties
  • Lid packaging available

Cons:

  • Scented

4. Bella Baby Happy Sensitive Wet Wipes

Cost:

Rs. 35 for 10 Wipes, Rs. 149 for 56 Wipes

Availability:

Flipkart

My Thoughts:

Bella has been my most favorite brand for personal hygiene. I use their sanitary products for myself religiously and literally have forgotten all other personal care brands ever since I tried their entire range. As I was so sure of their quality, I knew it would be even better for Arhum. So, I decided to get my hands on these wipes and ordered a pack.

To start off, I’d say they’re very mildly scented. You can easily sniff off aloe vera stuff going on as soon as you peel off the resealable sticker. I just wish that a lid packaging was available. These wet wipes are quite wet and ensure wiping off stubborn messes pretty easily.

I love the softness and delicacy of Bella Baby Happy Sensitive Wet Wipes. Let me also add that I have only tried the Aloe Vera variant but a lot of other variants are also available as per the mother’s preference and baby’s skin type. I just feel like these wipes are pretty overpriced that other competitive wipes available in the market. May be it is because they are imported from Europe. Well, if price tag is not an issue for you, you must try these.

Pros:

  • Soap, paraben, perfume and alcohol free
  • Neutral pH of 5.5
  • Enriched with Aloe Vera Extract
  • Very soft, porous fabric
  • Extremely gentle on the skin
  • Available in leading offline stores and supermarkets like Metro, Big Bazaar, Health and Glow etc
  • Available in various packs
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Allow delicate cleaning

Cons:

  • No lid packaging
  • Slightly overpriced

5. Pampers Sensitive Wet Wipes

Cost:

Rs. 350 for 56 Wipes

Size:

17.8 cm x 17.4 cm

Availability:

Amazon

My Thoughts:

Pampers needs no introduction as a leading baby care brand in India. Their diapers are more renowned but their wipes are not any lesser. I love the fact that they’re easily available near me in many different packs. I like the packaging of these wipes. It is really easy to pull off each wipe individually.

These wipes are not soaking wet but ensure effective cleaning. I have not noticed any dryness, irritation or rashes issues with these wipes. I like the overall quality and performance of these wipes. They simply do a great job in what they should. These wipes are mildly formulated and safe with a refreshing smell.

However, I feel like they are slightly over priced too. If your priority is safety, effective cleaning and availability, then Pampers Sensitive Wet Wipes are a great choice!

Pros:

  • 0% Phenoxyethanol, paraben, perfume and alcohol
  • Clinically proven gentle
  • pH balanced
  • Easily available locally
  • Available in many packs
  • 15% thicker than regular wipes
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Plastic lid packaging available

Cons:

  • Very overpriced

To conclude…

It was a difficult choice for me to list only five best baby wipes brands in India. Of course, there are some other great brands in the market too. But ranking deserving things is always a difficult choice. I have tried my best to list ones which I know perform nicely. If I haven’t mentioned some of the leading brands that you might like, it is probably because either I haven’t used it or I don’t like it.

What works for me may not work for you as well or vice versa. I hope my compilation of the top five baby wipes brands in India serves useful to you all. But you are a mother and you know what is best for your child! Make a wise selection, do your research, take your time and choose what your mommy heart says. BUT do not compromise for the sake of a little money!
