What's In My Baby's Nappy Pants?

The experts at Pampers carefully choose each nappy pants component based on both its safety profile and excellent performance in helping keep baby’s skin dry and healthy.

SAFETY PROMISE

All Pampers products and materials undergo rigorous safety and performance evaluations before they come into contact with baby’s skin. Find out more about the safety process and what we don't add to Pampers products.

    Elastics are stretchy materials used in nappy pants to provide flexibility and improved fit. All Pampers products are latex-free. Our products do not contain natural rubber - we either use synthetic rubber or a completely different technology.

  • Pigments

More than 400 studies have evaluated them to ensure they pose no safety risks, even if accidentally swallowed.
