“Conventional baby wipes almost always contain a number of ingredients that really have no place around adults, let alone around babies who are more sensitive,” says Lara Adler, a certified holistic health coach and environmental toxins expert. She suggests looking for options that are made mostly of water and are free from potential endocrine disruptors like added fragrances, phthalates, and parabens. Here are KIWI’s top nontoxic picks:
