Q: What makes Muumi Baby diapers skin-friendly?
A: Skin-friendliness is one of our most important values, alongside environmental responsibility. We make every effort to ensure that our diapers are suitable even for babies with the most sensitive skin.
The skin-friendliness of a diaper is the sum of many factors, such as the materials it is produced from and how well it fits. The raw materials for our diapers are carefully selected, and our production relies on soft and safe materials. Whenever possible, we also favour Nordic producers of raw materials. Our diapers do not contain any unnecessary chemicals, such as lotions or scents. The main raw material for our diapers is totally chlorine-free Finnish cellulose from certified Scandinavian forests. The cellulose we use is not bleached with chlorine derivatives, but with 100% pure oxygen. This is a safer and friendlier alternative for both your baby's skin and our environment. Nor do Muumi Baby diapers contain any allergenic agents such as latex, formaldehyde or phthalates. How well a diaper fits also plays a role in skin-friendliness. When the diaper fits well, it will not irritate or leave red marks on your baby’s skin. The fabrics and plastic materials used in Muumi Baby diapers are very breathable, meaning that your baby's skin can breathe even when the diaper is on. The carefully selected materials also absorb liquids, keeping your baby's skin dry.
But this is not enough for us – we engage in continuous work to develop increasingly skin-friendly diapers. Muumi Baby diapers are made in cooperation with the Finnish Allergy and Asthma Federation, and we will continue our already long-standing collaboration in the future. Our diapers are also dermatologically tested.
