Is there polyester in your diaper? Does it touch my baby/Is it on the inside?

The construction of a diaper has many layers to it, for inside, do you mean inside the diaper? If so, inside the diaper, or what is called the 'diaper core,' we use wood pulp from sustainably managed forests, mixed with SAP, which allows the diaper to be absorbent. The core is on the very inside part of the diaper.


If by inside you mean the layer that is face up when you put the diaper on (the layer that touches your baby), or the topsheet, we use a plant-based topsheet, which is a soft, fast-absorbing plant-based layer that wicks away moisture and keeps baby’s skin dry. Topsheet made of 50% plant-based polyethylene and 50% polypropylene.


All disposable diapers have polyester in them and other types of plastics, as that is the only way to make a disposable diaper that is effective. Our diaper has been tested for safety and third-party verified by the EWG. We third-party test for toxins and we are the only diaper brand to list all of the ingredients in our diaper.


If you are interested in a diaper that does not have any polyester in it, we do also have a cloth diaper option, that is made of unbleached, organic cotton, and this is the only material that is the 'inside' or touches your baby's skin.
