Non Toxic Diapers and Wipes Guide
Hello & Happy Saturday!!
During undergrad when I first started Eat Drink Shrink I loved testing natural products. At the time it was more of a newer movement and the options were minimal. Today the market for natural products is thriving and new companies are popping up all over the place. While it’s a wonderful time to be a consumer, it can also be harder to navigate which products are even worth trying.
That’s especially true for natural diapers and wipes!
Not only are all babies different, but all diapers and wipes are different in terms of price point, quality and effectiveness and you can go through countless options until you arrive at products that are a good fit. Rather than dealing with the anxiety of scouring the internet and reading endless reviews, I thought I’d compile a list with the best of the best in natural diapers and wipes to make the process more seamless.
Why natural products: Today non toxic baby products are readily available at retailers nationwide and at competitive prices. Not only can you support small business, expose your baby to less ingredients, but you can even better then environment with biodegradable packaging and diapers. The real question you have to ask yourself today, is why not?!
After living in New York City for 9 years I personally prefer to order everything. You tend to find better deals and in terms of diapers, you just may find better quality and simultaneously be supporting small businesses. That being said, many of these companies can be found on their flagship website or via Amazon making the process of restocking just so effortless.
From all different price points and sizing, to brand new companies and those even based in the UK, here is a collection of the best of the best with non toxic diapers and wipes!!
Curious about the quality and how they stack up against each other?! Check back in September with the follow up guide to find out what worked best for us!
Have you heard of any of these companies?!
Do you currently use any of their products?!
Is there a non toxic diaper or wipe that you like and don’t see here?!
I’d love to know!!
Why Parasol Diapers: Out of all the companies featured in this guide, I was instantly drawn to Parasol given the marketing and packaging and even the company name. In an instant you could tell that they invested a lot of time and creativity in this arena and it absolutely makes a difference. In addition to diapers and wipes, they also feature non toxic pads for women, which I’ve yet to come across. The marketing is on point and the diaper designs are festive and fun, but this is subscription only and not available at large retailers.
I’m beyond excited to explore this company and provided feedback! Be sure to check back in September!
With each monthly box subscription at Abby & Finn, we donate a diaper a day to families in need. That means every time you receive a box, we are donating diapers right here in the U.S.

Why Abby & Finn: I’ve had my eye on natural diapers long before becoming pregnant, and I had never heard of this company. While you can’t purchase them at a large retailer today, they have a subscription service that you can tailor to your needs and they even donate 30 diapers with each order. Learn more about the quality behind Abby & Finn in September on Eat Drink Shrink!
Why Little Toes Diapers: I chose to feature Little Toes Diapers as this was another company that I had yet to come across. That being said, they are available online only, but you can purchase items individually without a subscription, they offer bamboo based diapers and wipes, fun designs, and even Swimmie Diapers, which I had yet to come across with any other natural company. While other companies featured offer bamboo diapers that are said to be biodegradable, that wasn’t listed under the product information for Little Toes.

The world doesn’t need another diaper, the world needs a better diaper. At Boo Brand Diapers a portion of the proceeds from every diaper box are used to help make the world a better place, locally and globally. By joining Boo you’re helping to fund that mission one sh*t at a time, and empower communities that may not have the education or resources that you can’t live without. From California to Africa, if their work is impactful and helps create self sustaining communities, we want to help them.
Boo’s premium disposable diapers are made from bamboo. Bamboo is an incredibly sustainable and extremely absorbent organic resource.
Most Boo members tell us that they use fewer diapers than before. That saves you money, and helps eliminate even more waste in your local landfill.
Why Boo Brand Diapers: This was honestly the last company I came across and I was intrigued by the company name, simplicity in the logo, the hysterical marketing, and that the diapers had no designs. For some consumers they prefer the basic diaper without all the dyes as it’s just not necessary. In addition to the diapers being non toxic and bamboo based, they are also considered biodegradable!
At this time you can only order them online, but again this company is on the newer side so I’m excited to see where the company goes. Learn more about them in September on Eat Drink Shrink!!

Given the amount of consumers that prefer to order everything via Amazon, I knew they would be a great feature with readers. Learn more about product quality coming in September to Eat Drink Shrink!

Emily began developing Bets & Emy wipes in 2013 after the birth of her son, Archie. Archie was born with a full head of red hair and very sensitive skin, and he was frequently troubled with diaper rash. When Emily realized how many chemicals were in her baby wipes – even the “natural, fragrance free” baby wipes she trusted – she believed they were part of the problem and began searching for a better alternative.

- 99.9% Water • 0.1% Citrus Extract
- Paraben free
- Soft & Strong
- No Fragrance or Oils
Bets & Emy wipes contain just 99.9% water & 0.1% citrus extract, with no fragrances, oils or parabens. We have proudly earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance, and the EWG Seal of Approval. American-mom Made, & made in the USA by a women’s owned business.
Why Bet’s & Emy: While many consumers opt for purchasing diapers and wipes from the same company, I can already tell that many parents also mix and match as the quality varies between each company. Perhaps the diapers are wonderful, but the wipes are underwhelming. That being said I was excited to stumble upon this small business to explore their wipes to share with everyone. At this time they are only available via Amazon and retailers in Texas, but I’m sure they’ll be coming soon to a retailer near you!

At Jackson Reece all our baby skincare products are made in the UK and are completely organic, with 99% of our ingredients being plant and vegetable based. Unlike many other brands, we don’t use nasty chemicals, alcohol, soap or anything similar, which strip skin of moisture and can cause irritation and eczema, amongst other things.
We knew from the outset that our baby wipes wouldn’t be bleached with chlorine like other cloths, so we took time to develop a high-quality biodegradable cloth made from natural wood pulp. We also made sure our ingredients were organic, creating gentle formulas that included soothing Aloe Vera, Ylang Ylang and vegetable extracts.
We also purified the water we used to ensure there were no hidden nasties within, and took a long time developing a natural vegetable-based preservative system so the wipes would be suitable for vegans.

Made from wood pulp, they’re biodegradable and compostable – worthy of our Kinder by Nature mantra.
You won’t find any nasties in our wipes, which are free from chemicals, chlorine, alcohol and all sorts of other abrasive substances. Instead, we’ve infused our high-quality cloths with organic ingredients including soothing Aloe Vera, purified water and gentle vegetable preservatives.

Why Jackson Reece: If you know me, you know I’m a huge supporter of U.K. based products. Product regulation is more stringent and I feel that the quality always exceeds that of anything produced in the U.S. hands down. That being said, I was curious to explore this natural wipe company that I happened to find via Amazon. With countless consumers ordered everything from that platform, it seemed like a perfect feature, In addition to multiple types of wipes that are derived from wood pulp and biodegradable, they also offer various baby skincare products. Since the product is made in the U.K., at this time you can only find them via Amazon or Walmart. Check back in September to get feedback on product quality.
