“ Brand: Northern Essence / Type: Baby Wipe Solution „
If you are using washable wipes or even cotton wool which I do in the house then this is an excellent purchase. Sometimes water on its own doesn't do a good enough job on the really messy situations (to put it politely).
Northern essence is a good foaming wipe solution that either comes ready made (in 2oz or 10oz bottles) or as a concentrated solution (4oz that makes 16oz of solution in total) you can water down yourself.
The ready made solutions come in a "foaming bottle" that makes the solution foam when you press the nozzle. A little bit of this solution goes a long way. You press the nozzle and squirt a small amount onto your wipe and then clean up the skin. It's important to give it a good shake to make sure all the ingredients are well mixed.
I bought the solution plain but you can get a version with added tea tree oil and lavender, both renowned for their antibacterial properties. I avoided these though since my son's skin is fairly sensitive.
The 2oz bottle size is nice and neat being about 15cm tall so it is small enough to carry in your change bag in the smallest of pockets.
Ingredients: distilled water, sunflower oil, coconut oil, citric acid, calendula, potassium hydroxide, apricot kernal oil, vitamin e, sweet orange and lemon essential oils.
I bought this from www.babykind.co.uk and paid £3.99 for the 2oz bottle. They have their own website www.northernessence.com where you can get further details.
We've been using this for abut 3 months with no problems but I have never tried it on anywhere other than his bum so couldn't say if it would be too strong for using on the face etc.
