Every mama out there knows that having a baby means buying soooooo many diapers and baby wipes. Putting all of that waste in the landfill impacts our environment, especially because baby wipes do not break down for over 100 years! Plus, some wipes can contain toxic ingredients that are not the best for our tiny human’s sensitive skin. We see climate change happening every day, and it’s time to take more conscious actions to heal our planet. It’s important for us to be eco-conscious when we are shopping, even more so for the little ones, so I’ve created a list of the best biodegradable baby wipes for every family and home.
9 Best Biodegradable Baby Wipes
Yugi Baby Green
These wipes are perfect for your baby, but are also amazing substitutes for your adult daily wipes as well. Plus, they can even be cheaper than name-brand wipes when you buy them in bulk! Try them out and if you don’t love them, they offer a full refund within 30 days. Perfect for the environment and your wallet.
Water Wipes get a lot of hype, and for a good reason. These wipes are named perfectly, as they are made up of 99% water and a single drop of fruit extract. They are perfect for all sensitive skin, especially premature and newborn babies. Plus, if you struggle with eczema, these wipes are approved by The National Eczema Association.
Eco Pea Co
Eco Pea wipes are made of bamboo, hypoallergenic, and are dermatologist tested! Even better, they are vegan, cruelty free, and gluten free. Buyers have rated these wipes a 4.8/5! Plus, they have an amazing diaper subscription you should check out while you’re on their site.
Natracare Baby Wipes
The Natracare Baby Wipes may be a bit pricier than your typical pouch of wipes, but this sustainable choice is well worth the money. The thickness is perfect and they don’t tear apart when you’re using them. Plus, they don’t leave behind that “lint” like substance on your baby’s bottom (mamas, you know what I’m talking about!).
Kinder by Nature
Kinder by Nature wipes are unscented, hypoallergenic, and perfect for you little one (and the environment!). These wipes compost in about 60 days, so there is no guilt in using more than one! If your babe is sensitive to chemicals or fragrance, make these your go to.

Have you ever had wipes that are way too big so you either end up feeling like you wasted a wipe or you tear the wipe in half to shove it back in the pouch? Eco Boom wipes will be perfect for you, then. These are smaller than your average wipe, but they pack a punch! They are affordable and a good substitute for your usual baby wipes. Their size makes it difficult for them to fit in a wipe warmer, so keep that in mind.
Mum & You
These strong wipes are the perfect option for mama’s looking to make the switch to biodegradable. They are a bit thinner than the other options, but their strength keeps me coming back. They have a great amount of moisture so they aren’t dripping all over the place, and you can find them on Amazon at a comparable price to other name-brand wipes.
Rawganic wipes are great for diaper changes, messy faces, or a quick full body wipedown. Plant-based, earth-friendly, and naturally derived, Rawganic strives to only use the best products for babies. One quirk is that they are folded in half inside the packaging, so you might have to fiddle with that, but not a dealbreaker.
Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard’s mission is to create the highest quality products at the most reasonable cost, because we believe every child deserves the best. Hello Bello’s products – including their Plant Based Baby Wipes – carefully crafted to be safe and effective for babies and better for their world. 99% water based, hypoallergenic, fragrance free, pH balanced, and septic and sewer safe – with the cutest packaging as an extra reason fo love.
