According to Snopes, the article contained a mixture of the truth, with the HealthEternally.com article putting parents in a quandary about ditching convenient, store-bought baby wipes and sending them to the web to figure out how to make their own baby wipes.
As reported by Pediatrics, a small number of children had an issue with methylisothiazolinone in baby wipes, but didn't tell all parents to avoid all baby wipes for all children. Therefore, according to experts, parents can rest assured that they don't need to throw away all the baby wipes in their households and that there's no need to discontinue buying baby wipes, as long as their children don't react negatively to any methylisothiazolinone in their baby wipes.
Since the original study was from 2014, some makers of baby wipes have come up with "natural" or "MI-free" baby wipes.
A search for "MI free" baby wipes on Google turns up plenty of results for products like Huggies Natural Care Wipes, which are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic.
On Facebook, Huggies wrote a reply about their baby wipes to a concerned person recently.
"Nothing is more important than the health and safety of the families who use our products. We evaluated alternative preservative options perfect for babies with allergic sensitivity to MI preservatives and we're pleased to say that all of our baby wipes transitioned to our MI-free formula in 2014."
"Dr. Robin Gehris, from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre, says the number of children suffering from these reactions is increasing. She believes this could be because the amount of MI in baby wipes has been increased."
Meanwhile, other people are noting that they can only use certain brands of baby wipes without having an issue.
"The only wipe I can use is Pampers Sensitive."
"I never realized baby wipes can come so handy when removing clown paint."
