Wet wipes material
are typically made from a combination of synthetic fibers, such as polyester and polypropylene, and cellulose fibers from wood pulp. These fibers are often spun into a nonwoven fabric, which is then cut into the appropriate shape and size for the wipe. The fabric is then saturated with a liquid solution that can include water, cleaning agents, moisturizers, and other ingredients depending on the intended use of the wipe.
The choice of fibers and the specific combination of ingredients in the liquid solution will depend on the manufacturer and the intended use of the wipe. For example, baby wipes may be made with softer fibers and milder ingredients to be gentle on a baby's delicate skin, while cleaning wipes may be made with stronger fibers and harsher cleaning agents to effectively remove dirt and grime.
It also can be made from biodegradable and compostable materials, such as cellulose fibers that are derived from sustainable wood sources or plants fibers like bamboo, to be more environmentally friendly.
