Why No Perfumes? (nappies top)
Over the years, many of our customers
have remarked that babies smell fresher
in an Eco Nappy than in the ordinary nappies they have tried.
Ordinary nappies may contain bleach
residues or other chemicals not found in the Eco Nappy.
With ordinary nappies, these chemicals may react with the baby's urine, causing a smell that
forces a nappy change even when it is only a little bit wet. With the Eco Nappy, this does
not seem to happen.
Synthetic perfumes are active chemicals which should not be used against a baby's sensitive skin.
By far the most
dramatic effect is in the case of many babies with nappy rash. Even, or perhaps
especially, in the case of babies with long-standing nappy rash, the improvement may be
dramatic, sometimes an overnight return to normal skin condition.
Conversely, the same
babies may experience a return of the nappy rash if 'ordinary'
disposables are used again.
We do not at this
point have any explanation for this effect, but can only assume that
something is not in the Eco Nappy that may be present in the 'ordinary' product
The Eco Nappy: helps keep chemicals off your baby's skin. (next)
