Certified according to the standards of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and Asthma Allergy Nordic, Bambo Nature Wet Wipes are the sustainable and safe choice for your baby and the environment.

How did this product make your life easier?

Elaine: These wipes are a nice product. Being 100% biodegradable is a huge plus for anyone concerned about the environment but not quite ready to go down the full cloth wipes or wanting something to use out and about rather than saving said cloth wipes to take home. They are on a par with many other wipes on the market, they do exactly as you would expect them to do, so the reason to buy this brand would be because they are biodegradable.

Clotilde: My son has very sensitive skin so we tend to only use water with reusable wipes but when out and bout I find this is difficult and prefer to use wet wipes. However there are very few options that are suitable for sensitive skin but also eco friendly. It is great to have found biodegradable wipes that are both environmentally friendly and suitable for sensitive skin as my son did not react to them.

Paula: Because they are not soapy like other brands I find that they don’t stick together. You only pull one out at a time and not a massive trail of three or four all at once. They are quite strong and they don’t rip as easily as some that I have used. Although they contain 0% perfume they do have a nice little fragrance to them.

Would you recommend this to other parents

Clotilde: Absolutely! Ease of use, comparable to other normal wipes despite being made of viscose only with no microplastics. Fits easily in changing bag wipes pouch. Slightly difficult to grip wipe folded edge but pulls out of packet easily without sticking. Very soft when used on skin. My only concern is that it doesn't have as much tensile strength and did rip when vigorously cleaning my toddler's hands.

Paula: I love that these wipes are 100% biodegradable and suitable for asthma sufferers and all skin types. They don’t contain any perfume so they are suitable for the most sensitive skin. I like that they are not soapy but still wet enough to do the job. They are dermatologically tested and suitable for adults as well as children.

Jessica: I would recommend the Bambo Nature 100% Biodegradable Wipes to other parents mainly because they are a very good quality eco friendly option, which is scarce in the baby product world. The design of the packaging is lovely and has been made as eco friendly as possible with smaller packaging and less plastic on the lid.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Katie: I think they definitely could be a winner. Initially I thought £2.50 for a pack was a little on the expensive side, however when I used them I could see why they were a bit more expensive than the standard wipes out there. The one thing that makes them really stand out is the fact they're 100% biodegradable. Also they're so soft but still strong and so full of moisture. A really important factor being also the 0% perfume or colour as those things I feel are so unnecessary for babies sensitive skin.

Ellie: I would not choose this product over others on the market because of how expensive they are. Although you use less wipes per changes, it's still quite a high price bracket. I would only buy these if they were on offer for about £1.50. If I was choosing to be more eco friendly though and this was more important than cost, then I would buy them. For me personally, the cost is an issue because I think they are only suitable for a household who have more money to spend on disposable wipes.

Jessica: I would choose the Bambo Nature 100% Biodegradable Wipes over others because not only are they extremely soft and gentle, with no perfume, they still have a nice smell about them, unlike some others which I have found to smell a bit chemically. I also absolutely love the fact that they are biodegradable. The perfect solution for parents who don't want to make the move to reusable wipes.

What changes would you make to this product?

Jessica: With the Bambo Nature 100% Biodegradable Wipes, I think the only thing I would change would be to have bigger packets. 50 wipes just isn't enough sometimes, especially when they are a little more expensive than some others. I know it is more expensive to make biodegradeable wipes but I sometimes feel conned when I dont realise I've paid more for less wipes. 

Ellie: I would prefer if they were a bit kinder on babies skin. My baby is 4 months old and she did get sore from me using them which never happens to her so I do feel this product did not react well to her young skin. I think maybe they should be marketed at older babies rather than newborn. I would also change the cost, as £2.50 is quite pricey for the average household.

Elaine: The only real issue I had with this product, is an issue I have with most baby wipes, getting them out of the packet. To over come it I would scrape the top wipe and make sure it and the next wipe were loose and ready to go before taking the nappy off. I do not have a sensible suggestion as to how to change the product to make them come apart more easily but it is a fault you can work around.
