Are baby wipes healthy to use "down there"?

 | 34 comments

Ah yes, the age old question we get hit with about a hundred times every day.

“Are baby wipes okay to use around your vagina?”

Some argue that if baby wipes are safe and gentle enough to be used on a baby’s diapered parts then surely they are safe enough for women to use as well, right? Yes and no.

Health expert Sandy Knauf says, “If it helps you feel more clean and fresh, that is certainly okay!” but she also goes on to point out that, with the evolution of feminine care, we now have our own product; feminine hygiene wipes. We actually happen to know a great company that sells this amazing product…wink, wink. I mean, why use products made for babies when there are products on the market that are specially formulated for a woman’s body? We use pads or tampons during our periods, not diapers, so why should we settle for baby wipes when we have feminine hygiene wipes?

Knauf also adds a list of suggestions for women if they do indeed choose to use baby wipes. First, choose unscented wipes. Scented feminine products can cause irritation. Holly Phillips, M.D., a women’s health specialist in New York City, also agrees saying, “Play it safe by going for an unscented, unmedicated, chemical-free brand of wipe.” Second, always follow the front-to-back wipe rule and only use the wipes on the outside of your body. Third, use them sparingly. Fourth, if you notice any burning or irritation, stop using them immediately.

Now here comes the “no” part to our “yes and no” answer. The University of Iowa’s vulvar skin care guidelines suggests that it is best to refrain from using any type of “feminine hygiene sprays, perfumes, adult, or baby wipes.” They also suggest that women use only white, unscented toilet paper and stay away from those containing aloe. An article on The Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health’s website also agrees with these suggestions.

So there you have it. Looks like the verdict is still out on this one, as there are just as many sources saying wipes are just fine to use as there are saying to stay away from them all together. A few things our sources do agree on is to make sure you only use wipes on the outside of your body and to make sure you choose an unscented brand to reduce the risk of irritation.

We want to know what you think. Do you use baby wipes down there, or do you choose to use feminine hygiene wipes? Let us know your preferences in the comments below.

    The way we’ve gotten around that is to always work with somebody on a project before we start handing over significant equity stakes or large sums of money. If the trial project goes well, then talk about expanding the scope of the relationship. Sam Altman from Y-Combinator once said something to the equivalent of ‘a bad hire in the first few employees can be detrimental to a startup.’ I’ve really taken that to heart in my business."
    The most painful mistake I see first-time (or inexperienced) entrepreneurs make is that they see others in their industry or niche as competition. This can significantly hold you back, as you may never learn industry secrets and tips, make genuine friends, and more.

    Most often when I get pitched ideas from first-time entrepreneurs, I ask how is this different from [x]? Seriously, because it takes so much time and effort to go all-in on a business idea, you might as well wait for a truly great one
    Probably the most costly mistake many entrepreneurs make is in choosing the people that they work with or hire. It’s a mistake I’ve made. And it’s a mistake I’ve seen over and over again

    Instead, work to come up with a creative solution that costs little to no money. That forced discipline will help you spend less than you make, even when you’re not making a lot. Sometimes capital is necessary, but at some point there must be return on that capital. There’s nothing wrong with taking equity investment, investing for the future, even losing money for a few years. But your plan has to get you back to that simple equation of making more than you spend."
    The biggest mistake I see entrepreneurs make is over-estimating the novelty of their big idea."

    The reality is that there is no way to know how long it will take or whether it will work at all. So my advice is to approach it with humility, grit and a willingness to do whatever it takes to succeed, even if that means you have to work really hard for a long time."
    Never forget that your business needs to take in more money than it spends. I know that sounds too simple, but so many people lose sight of that. That’s also why so many first-time entrepreneurs over-invest (or spend so much of their time looking for investors) early on.
