A baby’s sensitive skin needs a gentle, breathable diaper

Newborns have thin, delicate skin that is not yet used to the stresses and strains of the outside world. Skin in the diaper area is particularly vulnerable and requires gentle, daily care. Muumi Baby diapers are a safe and skin-friendly choice for your baby, as they do not contain any added chemicals, such as chlorine, fragrances or lotions that could irritate a baby’s sensitive skin.

Skin-friendliness is of the utmost importance in a diaper, as a young baby’s skin is still very thin and delicate. Skin-friendliness is one of the most important features in Muumi Baby diapers, and a range of different factors that influence the wellbeing of a baby’s skin are considered during the manufacturing process.

Among other things, the manufacturing materials and fit can affect the skin-friendliness of a diaper. The raw materials in Muumi Baby diapers are carefully selected, and the manufacturing process uses only proven, pure raw materials and breathable surface materials that meet stringent environmental criteria but do not irritate babies’ sensitive skin. The main raw material used in the diapers is Finnish cellulose, which is entirely chlorine-free – and therefore dioxin-free, too. The cellulose is bleached not with chlorine, but with pure oxygen. No unnecessary chemicals, such as lotions or fragrances, are added to the diapers. Muumi Baby diapers do not contain any allergenic agents such as latex, glyphosate, formaldehydes or phthalates. This is a safe solution for your baby’s skin and for the environment we leave behind for our young ones.

The importance of the diapers’ skin-friendliness is emphasized in feedback from Muumi Baby diapers users: “I decided while I was pregnant that our baby would wear Muumi Baby diapers if they fit. I don’t want my baby’s delicate skin to be in contact with any excess chemicals. Fragrance-free products are a necessity for us. The most important thing when choosing a diaper brand is skin-friendliness and freedom from fragrances,” says Nina R.

Nina I. has also been extremely satisfied with the skin-friendliness of Muumi Baby diapers: “Muumi Baby diapers have been the only diapers that prevent leaks and have NEVER don’t cause any redness or rash.”


A well-fitting diaper will not rub or press into the skin

The fit of a diaper is important for skin-friendliness. If a diaper fits well, it will not irritate or rub your baby’s skin. Muumi Baby diapers’ fabric materials are extremely breathable, so that your baby’s skin can breathe even while wearing the diaper. The high-quality materials absorb liquid and keep the baby’s skin dry, preventing the baby’s velvety soft skin from being in contact with pee or poo for too long.

“Our girls’ skin has always fared excellently using Muumi Baby diapers.” Muumi Baby open diapers have been the best night-time diapers for us, and don’t feel cold on the bottom even if they are full and have been on for 12 hours! And the few times when we have had a leak have been very rare, since the diapers fit the girls very well and are long enough at the back. No other diaper has met our requirements so well,” says Johanna, mum to two girls who wear Muumi Baby diapers.

Muumi Baby diapers are continuously developed to be even more skin-friendly in collaboration with the Finnish Allergy, Skin and Asthma Federation. The diapers have been awarded the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and have been approved by the Finnish Allergy, Skin and Asthma Federation, which means that the materials and the manufacturing process meet the strict criteria set for these labels. This is, however, only the minimum requirement for Muumi Baby diapers, so our products are continuously developed to make them better and safer.
