Let’s start with my completely subjective thoughts about Pampers diapers. Pampers diapers are a very trim and thin diaper. They don’t look like they could soak up a lot, but they hold their own against other diapers. Pampers Swaddlers, Swaddlers Sensitive and Cruisers are their premium lines of diapers, while their Baby Dry diapers are their budget line. Comparing them side-by-side, you can feel the difference between the diapers. The Swaddlers are softer and feel “cushier”. Pampers brand diapers do contain fragrance.
Pampers Easy Ups Training Underwear are made for either Girls or Boys. Their styles have the same features, but different designs and more targeted absorbency depending on the gender.
Here’s the basics:
Pampers diapers are manufactured by Procter & Gamble in the USA. Luvs diapers are also manufactured by P & G. Pampers diapers were first introduced in 1961. Their website is www.pampers.com.
What is actually in a Pampers diaper? What are Pampers diapers made of?
Pampers diapers contain multiple layers including a top sheet with lotion, an absorption layer made from polyester fibers, and the distribution layer which contains the super-absorbent gel. Pampers diapers do contain pigments (not dyes) for the cute designs on the outside of the diapers. They also contain fragrance.
What isn’t in a Pampers diaper?
Well, a lot of things! Pampers boasts that their diapers do not contain BPA, dioxins, disperse dyes, elemental chlorine (they use an elemental chlorine-free process to purify the fibers in their diapers which the FDA believes to be a safe and dioxin-free method), ethanol and isopropyl (rubbing alcohol), natural rubber latex, lead and mercury, organotins, parabens, pesticide residues, phenol, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) or preservatives.
Pampers makes many versions of their diapers including: Pampers Swaddlers, Pampers Pure Protection, Pampers Baby Dry, Pampers Cruisers, Pampers Swaddlers Overnights, and Pampers Easy Ups Training Underwear (for Girls or Boys).
