Wondering what makes Mother Sparsh Water Wipes different from other wipes? Find out…
After I wrote the review of Mother Sparsh Water Based Wipes few weeks ago, I got two kinds of responses. The first came as a pleasant surprise as some of my friends told me they have been already using the brand and are extremely happy with it. The second one was where some of you asked me how are Mother Sparsh Water Based Wipes different from other wipes available in the market. It’s a pertinent question as they all look the same. The difference is actually palpable when you start using it.
Before I get down to comparing it to other brands, you might want to know what exactly water based wipes mean. Water based wipes means that the majority constituent of these wipes is purified water. Most of the other wipes are lotion based.
- Mother Sparsh Baby wipes: As Good as Cotton & Water
Having switched a number of brands before zeroing on Mother Sparsh Water based wipes for my baby, I can say the number one reason why I like these wipes is that they are non-soapy. While the difference did not matter much earlier, it bothered me when my baby had a few rashes. The soapy ingredient, I guessed, caused her much of the irritation. She would howl and cry during her diaper change which stopped after I started using cotton and water. But that was cumbersome and couldn’t be used on the go. And then came in Mother Sparsh Water based wipes which are as good as cotton and water! These wipes are also clinically proven for rashes.
According to an article in The Guardian, wet wipes were termed as the biggest villain of 2015. The problem lies in something known as fatbergs, which are “made up of wet wipes flushed down loos and the fat and grease poured down sinks are forming in sewers and causing blockages, with decidedly unpleasant consequences.”
The problem does not exist if the wipes are biodegradable. Mother Sparsh Baby wipes are India’s first biodegradable wipes. Made of 100% plant-based fabric, these wipes are veritably “green”. So, it is good not just for your baby’s skin but environment as well. However, it is still advised not to flush the wipes in toilet.
- They are thinner
I haven’t seen the brand claiming this difference over other brands so I don’t know if it is factually correct. But I find these thinner than the ones I was previously using (Johnson & Johnson). I find that an advantage in easy cleaning over the thicker ones.
Mother Sparsh water based wipes contain botanical extracts, like chamomilla recutita flower extract instead of chemicals for fragrance. Most other wipes use ‘parfum’, which means they use undisclosed mixture of various scent chemicals.
Price: 80 wipes for Rs 175 (MRP) but you can get it on a discounted rate on Amazon
