Disposable Cleaning Wipe can be used for baby care, hand washing, female and other personal cleaning, makeup removal, and application of deodorants and sunless tanning agents. Many wet wipes (but not all) are regulated as cosmetics.
Although these products are convenient, consumers need to understand the ingredients, how to use them safely, and how to report problems:
It depends on their intended use:
Wet wipes used to clean or moisturize the skin, such as those used for baby care, hand washing, makeup removal, body washing when it is not practical, or women’s or other personal cleaning products, are all regulated as cosmetics. The same is true for wet wipes used to apply products such as sunless tanners or deodorants.
Except for color additives, the law does not require cosmetics or ingredients to be approved by the FDA before they are marketed.
However, when people use cosmetics in accordance with the instructions or habit or usual way on the label, the cosmetics must be safe. For more information, please refer to "FDA Authority on Cosmetics".
Wet wipes used for therapeutic purposes, such as killing bacteria on the skin, or treating acne, diaper rash, or other skin diseases, are drugs prescribed by law. The drug must meet the FDA's approval requirements for safety and effectiveness before it is marketed. The drug is regulated by the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
Wet wipes used to control bacteria (disinfection or disinfection) on inanimate surfaces and wet wipes containing insect repellents are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency.
The wet wipes used to clean things in our homes, workplaces, gyms and public places are regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

What does Mobry have?
The cleaning wipes are made of materials such as polyester, polypropylene, cotton, wood pulp or man-made fibers and made into sheets. They can be packaged individually, or in small or large packages. They are moistened with water and other ingredients, such as detergents and moisturizers that help them work. They may contain other ingredients, such as preservatives, to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold.
Wet wipes are sometimes labeled as scented, unscented, or unscented. The FDA has no regulations governing the use of these terms. But cosmetics labels must be true and not misleading.
Generally, the word "odorless" on the cosmetics label means that the product has no obvious fragrance. But it may actually contain "masking" fragrance ingredients to hide the smell of ingredients that may be unpleasant.
However, since the term "flavor" refers to a specific type of ingredient, cosmetics labeled as "flavor-free" should not contain any added flavor ingredients. Products marked as "fragrance-free" may have a noticeable fragrance due to other ingredients, whether it is pleasing or unpleasant.
If the product contains fragrance ingredients, the ingredient list must be so stated. Fragrance ingredients can be identified by name or simply "flavor". For more information, please refer to "Flavours in Cosmetics".
Safe use of wet wipes: tips for consumers
How consumers use and store wet wipes affects their safety. Here are some safety tips:
Use wipes only on undamaged intact skin.
Follow all instructions on the label and use the wipes only for their intended purpose. For example, it may be warned not to use wet wipes on broken or irritated skin, or the instructions may recommend rinsing the skin after use.
Make sure to dry the skin thoroughly after using wet wipes.
Keep the container tightly closed to prevent the wipes from drying out.
Discard the used wipes immediately to prevent cross-contamination, and follow the instructions on the label. Some (but not all) are marked as washable.
As with all cosmetics, store wipes properly. If they are exposed to extreme temperatures, such as in a hot or cold car, they may dry out, or extreme temperatures can cause changes in composition. For example, preservatives that prevent bacteria and mold may break down and fail to function. In addition, bacteria and mold may grow faster in warm places.
If you have sensitive skin or certain allergies, please check the ingredient list on the label before using the wipes. The FDA requires the use of this list for all cosmetics sold to consumers in retail. This list can help you determine the ingredients to avoid. Remember, not everyone will react to the same things. For example, some parents reacted to baby wipes that did not disturb their babies.
Stay informed. When the FDA becomes aware of health issues, we will alert the public. For example, some wet wipes contaminated with bacteria or mold have been recalled.
If you notice a rash in the area where the wipes touch the skin, such as raised red bumps, whether smooth or crusty, redness, irritation, or burns, stop using the wipes and contact your healthcare provider immediately.
