Pampers is named Best Diaper for Women’s Equality and Reproductive Rights in our SweetScore Recommends review of the Best Socially Conscious Diaper Companies by Kelly Black

Made in USA by Ohio based Procter and Gamble.

These are popular disposable wipes made with minimal chemicals.  They do a great job doing what they need to do and are designed to be gentle on your skin and not to introduce chemical pollution into your home.

Other than the intentional reduction of chemicals in the moisturizing fluid, we’re  not aware of anything designed to be earth friendly or sustainable here – either in the product or its packaging.

The wipes are manufactured under US Federal and State environmental laws, which provide pretty good restrictions on release of pollutants in connection with manufacturing.

According to Proctor and Gamble, Pampers Aqua Pure Wipes do not contain parabens, dyes, or fragrances. The 1% of ingredients that are not water or cotton include dermatologically-tested cleansers and pH-balancing ingredients to help protect your baby’s delicate skin.

Points in favor of this product:

  • Made in USA
  • Popular, quality wipe designed to be gentle on your baby’s skin and to minimize the introduction of chemicals into your home

Points not in favor of this product:

  • Maker (Procter and Gamble) is reported to be the third largest advertiser on Fox “News” (and Fox News is now seen by many as propaganda rather than legitimate news)
  • Nothing about these wipes is particularly sustainable (e.g. neither diaper components themselves nor diaper packaging are said to be made of recycled materials)
  • Maker’s headquarters location (Ohio) has been moving to aggressively restrict the reproductive rights of its citizens
  • Of potential interest to those concerned about the ethics of the current administration and those in the GOP controlled Senate who support it, this product maker’s headquarters location (Ohio) boasts one GOP Senator and voted to elect DLT in 2016
