Bambo and Bambo Nature nappies are designed for babies with eczema and sensitive skin.
There has been a lot of research done into eczema and skin irritations caused by nappies. The general consensus is that it’s dyes, perfumes and dioxins used in many disposable nappies that cause allergic reactions.
There’s a list of nappy ingredients that cause allergies here: http://toxipedia.org/display/toxipedia/Diapers
Naturally, neither Bambo nor Bambo Nature nappies use any of these allergenic ingredients. Abena, the manufacturer of both nappy brands, has released a statement on the list of these toxic ingredients here.
Bambo and Bambo Nature nappies contain:
- no perfumes
- no lotions or moisturisers
- AZO free dyes
- no chlorine
Abena uses absolutely no chemicals that are known to be harmful to health or the environment. This means there are no:
- Organotins (MBT, DBT, TBT)
- Heavy metals
- Chlorine (CI)
- Formaldehyde (HCHO)
In fact, Abena has gone even futher than this, and does not use any chemcial that is known to be locally irritating or sensitizing. This is why Bambo and Bambo Nature are the perfect nappy for babies with eczema or sensitive skin.
Both Bambo and Bambo Nature nappies have been certified by a number of leading independent testing laboratories to make sure that they don’t include any irritants, including:
- Danish Asthma Allergy Association
- Nordic Swan Eco Label
- proDERM dermatological institute
- British Retailer Consortium
As well as this, both brands of nappy have features designed to reduce wetness against baby’s skin.
The breathable backsheet allows air to circulate around the baby’s bottom, which reduces moisture, and also helps to reduce the risk of irritations and nappy rash. The super-absorbent core has a unique fabric layer that helps to draw moisture away from baby’s skin, too. This keeps baby drier even with repeat wetting.
