Our story begins back in 1999, when our beautiful son Jackson was born. We were so excited with our healthy bouncing baby, but at eight months Jackson developed baby eczema. To our horror, he became very unwell after using steroid cream which not only thins the skin but destroys the immune system. We also discovered that the alcohol present in many baby wipes compounded the condition, which just didnt seem right. Our first thought was "there has to be a natural wipe available that doesnt contain these types of chemicals?" We explored all the leading wipes and found none that offered an alcohol free, natural herbal alternative.
We had no choice but to return to cotton wool and water, which was neither effective nor practical. Jacksons severe blistering and bleeding from nappy rash got much worse and his eczema became even more inflamed as a result of the abrasive chemicals found in baby soap. In addition to this, a local water scientist informed us that the chlorine found in our water system would be just as abrasive to a baby like Jackson as alcohol.
As parents we felt we had no choice but to explore developing our own wipe that would protect and soothe our baby boys delicate skin. After years of exhaustive research and steadfast determination, we successfully designed our own unique cleansing wipes that contain naturally occurring ingredients. Coinciding with the birth of our second son in 2003, Reece, the concept for Jackson Reece Herbal Wipes was born.
We sourced a high quality biodegradable cloth that would withstand the rigours of the worst kind of nappies and incorporated a natural, herbal formulation containing certified organic aloe vera, and ylang ylang. And because any product that contains water provides a breeding ground for bacteria, yeast, and fungi, we also wanted to eliminate the harsh chemicals found in water by purifying the water to a high standard. With this in mind we made an ethical decision on the use of the preservatives used in our wipes. We took a long time developing a natural vegetable based preservative system which would also be suitable for vegans.
So far, the overwhelming positive feedback we have received has made all the hard work worthwhile. Parents write to tell us how grateful they are to find a wipe that really makes a difference for children and adults with eczema and sensitive skin.
