Anyone who has travelled for business knows the feeling of feeling "un-fresh" and not having access to a shower. Anytime you need a clean freshening up and don't have access to soap/water, you need an alternative solution: enter body wipes.
I recently went searching for the best wipes (for travel or EDC) and read hundreds of reviews online (websites, blogs and retailer comments) and ordered 30 different brands. what I was looking for was:
- large surface area
- thick wipe that won't easily rip
- something environmentally friendly
- something with a mild perfume and no alcohol
- something that comes in a resealable container
After all my testing, the ones that really stood out were the Action Wipes. They come in 9x10" sheets and are thick sheets. The wipes come in a resealable pouch. Another thing that really caught my interest is the openness the company has regarding their ingredient list. The company says their formula is ECOCERT, USDA National Organic Program (NOP) and Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO). The wipes contain natural ingredients, they are not tested on animals and they do not contain alcohol (which means it won't dry your skin).
The wipes I bought had a very pleasant tea tree and eucalyptus smell.
Overall these are expensive but worth it. They are fantastic and a great way to clean up without soap.
