What Doctors have to say about Aquaint

Q1.: Do you see Aquaint as a better alternative to using alcohol based products and/or products containing toxic chemicals?



Yes. It is easy to use and, as someone who gets migraines triggered by smells, I appreciated the lack of chemical or masking after-smells. I also feel that, given the choice between two products that are equally effective but where one carries less potential risk from chemicals, one should recommend the lower-risk alternative.
Dr. Julian Spinks

Yes, in fact although my Daughter in Law, who has a 9 month old baby, did not previously use alcohol based products, she now takes a little Aquaint spray with her everywhere.
Dr. Michael Apple

I have no doubt that parents will see Aquaint as a better alternative to using alcohol based products (particularly my Muslim parents) and other products that contain toxic chemicals. Even competitor products like some baby wipes which also claim to be alcohol free and avoid toxic chemicals, do admit to using a preservative called methylparaben (which Aquaint does not).
Dr. Jim Lawrie

Definitely.
Dr. Louise R Newson

Yes my wife already prefers this to the every day house cleaning products we had.
Dr. Arun Ghosh

Q2: What advantages do you feel it has?



It has a combination of good antimicrobial cover and activity, ease of use and reduced chemicals, with associated risks and odours. Dr. Julian Spinks

There is no smell, it dries quickly and appears to be non-irritant. Dr. Michael Apple
The main advantage with Aquaint is its safety particularly the suggestion that it is even safe to swallow or spray in the mouth. Dr. Jim Lawrie

It appears to be safer, less toxic and odourless which is good. I have three children and my 2 year old likes to "help" clean so she enjoys using it. She often squirts it in her mouth! I also have an AGA and cannot use chemicals on this but I have been using Aquaint and it cleans it up really well. It also appears to clean all my surfaces very well. Dr. Louise R Newson

With young children and pregnant women the amount of evidence against the use of chemical products and exposure is gathering and this is worrying. This product appears to be breaking new ground in the need to reduce this. Dr. Arun Ghosh

Q3: Do you think there is a need for a product like Aquaint?



I do feel that there is a need for a product that can be used in high risk areas where you do not want contamination of food or exposure of children to harsh or toxic chemicals. Dr. Julian Spinks

Yes. For example, my daughter in law sprays toys used by her childminder with Aquaint before letting her daughter use them. She also sprays surfaces at her childminder’s house, at cafés where she takes her baby and she also sprays her baby’s hands if she or the baby has a cold for example. My daughter in law is not obsessional about infections but as a first time mum she just finds it a reassuring thing to do for the baby. Also she is a hairdresser and thinks it is a good idea to spray her own hands after work before handling her baby again. Dr. Michael Apple

I think there is a need for a product like Aquaint although it may be a niche market and a lot of people are used to using baby wipes. Dr. Jim Lawrie

Definitely. Dr. Louise R Newson

I would like to say yes but I wonder if the larger producers would copy this idea and produce similar products in there own brand range. Dr. Arun Ghosh

Q4: How would you sum it up?



In a world where we are surrounded by increasing numbers of potentially toxic chemicals, Aquaint gives us a way to get the protection we need against toxic chemicals without adding to our exposure to these chemicals. Dr. Julian Spinks

Convenient, discreet, odourless, safe. Dr. Michael Apple

I would sum this up as a natural sanitising spray for mums and baby’s who are on the move, or at home. Dr. Jim Lawrie

Excellent Dr. Louise R Newson

Excellent product and cleaner - that a chemical conscious home stead would suit. Dr. Arun Ghosh

Q5: Would you recommend it?



I would recommend it, particularly for families, babies or young children. It would also be useful for those at high risk of infection and who have existing allergies to cleaning chemicals. Dr. Julian Spinks

Yes, in fact my daughter in law has recommended it to some of her friends with babies. Dr. Michael Apple

I would recommend this product, although I would like to understand a little better how it works so I can have 100% confidence about its efficacy and safety. Dr. Jim Lawrie

Yes - I would be happy to continue to use it in my kitchen!! Dr. Louise R Newson

Yes Dr. Arun Ghosh

Additional Professional Quotes



Allergy UK are delighted to recognise Aquaint as one of our Allergy Friendly Products. Aquaint is a unique sanitiser that does not use alcohol or other harmful chemicals, and is, therefore, unlikely to cause a reaction in those with allergies and sensitive skin. Aquaint can be safely used on the hands and body, and even on the skin of a new born baby, as well as on surfaces (even those that touch a baby's mouth) with no need to rinse off.
Lindsey McManus, Deputy CEO, Allergy UK

Aquaint is powerful enough to kill 99.9% of bacteria yet remains safe enough for use on infants, including newborn babies. Alcohol-free, it contains low levels of a substance we make in our own bodies to fight bacteria. You can sterilise bottles (and reuse without rinsing), teething rings, dummies, kitchen surfaces, breast pumps and more. Aquaint is even endorsed by Allergy UK as ‘Allergy Friendly’ making it an essential edition for every home.

What consumers have to say about Aquaint

The most versatile product you will ever buy! Safe, practical, refreshing, simple, easy to use, multi-functional so eliminates need for multiple products and it is not sticky like other anti bacterial hand cleansers. This versatile product really can be used on anything and everything. I use it to wipe down the highchair, clean sticky hands, clean my hands, spritz baby dummy and drinking cup spout, the list is endless. Perfect for when out and about in restaurants and changing rooms but equally as useful at home. I only wish I’d known about it when breast feeding so that I could have sterilised my breast pump with it. I have the full size product at home and take the travel size bottle everywhere, even when the baby isn’t with me. A true 5 star must have product, very happy with it, it definitely exceeded my expectations.
Sally Thurbon, Bedfordshire

I have both the large and small bottles of Aquaint. One is kept in my changing bag and one at the dinner table. I am finding it invaluable in my daily life as a busy Mum. It is incredibly reassuring to know that just one squirt will render all nasties gone and leave no chemical residue. I use it before and after dinner on hands, on my daughter’s hands when she tries to “help” change her nappy, in her mouth when she eats my flip flops and I even used it to sanitise the floor after a cat vomit this morning!! ….I genuinely don’t know what I would do without it now as it has so many uses. It is so much easier than constant hand washing and doesn’t sting my eczema covered hands either. It’s a fantastic product that no Mother should be without.
Sarah Bayley.

5 stars- Aquaint is awesome! If you want to clean new babies toys, hands etc without worrying they'll end up eating nasty chemicals or simply getting them on their delicate skin then this is a total must have! Seems expensive but a little goes a long way, especially with fine mist from smaller bottles. We bought a big and 2 small before baby came, use them loads and always have a small bottle to hand... we're just preparing to re-order as getting a bit low and baby is 4 months! Good value I'd say! Was dubious before first purchase but went to Aquaint website and was thoroughly convinced!
Heather, NCT Customer

Firstly I would like to thank you for Aquaint, my daughter is now 11 months old and it took me 6 months to discover your product which I found in JoJo's Blackheath branch. Myself and my NCT 'crew' had spent months looking for a product like this, as we wanted something which would safely cleanse our babies hands especially after changing in public areas. A bout of Rotavirus had us all desperate when the babies were 3 months old and I am pleased to say between all 6 babies we've not had 1 poorly tummy since finding your product!
Charlotte Lee

I have only been using Aquaint for a few weeks, yet it has totally changed the way that I sterilise my baby’s cups and bottles, and makes feeding her in restaurants and cafés so much easier and safer. I wish I had known about this ‘miracle water’ when I first had my baby, as it would have been invaluable to use with a newborn. There are very few things on the market that will have such a profound impact on a new mum’s day-to-day life, but Aquaint is very much one of them.
Victoria Barker.

I was trying to find a product for disinfecting/cleaning surfaces and toys, but everything seemed to be alcohol-based or dodgy chemicals... neither of which are good for a baby to ingest when sucking on toys etc. This stuff is amazing because I don't need to worry about it being toxic. It sprays on very wet, just like water. However, also like water, it doesn't evaporate, so you may need to give surfaces a quick wipe with a paper towel if you need to use them immediately. There's no smell and it's not drying on the skin so you can also use it as a hand disinfectant.
A Good Eater, Ocado customer

Really amazing product, looks, feels, tastes and smells just like normal water! Very easy to use and having read the reviews on the web and the awards this product has won i can see this product being a big hit with everyone, not just parents. Also great customer service from the company who makes this ; I had a query around the product so emailed them and i got a concise detailed response back in less than 20 minutes ! Great stuff
Daniel, Amazon Customer

I absolutely love this product. I don't have kids but was recommended this by a friend as it has a number of applications. I use it as a hand sanitiser and as it is completely safe I also use it in the kitchen to kill germs. Unlike other alcohol based products, it doesn't make my hands dry, instead it seems to soften them. I also have the smaller bottle which is great for when I am on the go.
Mr N A Earl

I think this is a fantastic product and wish it had been around when I had my first son. Brilliant for when a dummy has been dropped, or a bottle knocked over; I use it on my hands too and the kids prefer it to sterilising gel because it doesn’t have that chemical smell that so many do. I wouldn’t be without it now!
Michaela

Love this!!!! I haven't stopped using it since it arrived. I love that there is no strong smell like a lot of other similar products. We use this mostly for wiping down surfaces baby will touch, wiping her highchair after food and for wiping bottles and dummies after they have been on the floor. When out and about we have used it with a reusable wipe to wipe her hands and to clean a dummy if she drops it. The little travel bottle has nearly all gone so I will fill it up with the big bottle. The big bottle is a very generous size too. Great to know there are no nasty chemicals as our 1 year old is always putting things in her mouth. We also use this to wipe her toys down and will spray them weekly :)
Janine, TheBabyWebsite

I recieved this product to try in a handy handbag size spray bottle just before I was due to go on holiday. It was allowable size for hand luggage in a clear bag. We used it to clean and wipe the kids hands with when we couldn't hand wash but also very handy to clean the high chair prior to use while on holiday. We did this in restaurants whilst away too. No smell no residue and went nicely in my handbag perfect to prevent the dreaded DV virus. Would def purchase the larger size for use at home but love the handy handbag size too !!
Kate, TheBabyWebsite

I having been using Aquaint for the last couple of weeks and it has been great. The travel bottle is a great size to put in your handbag/nappy bag. I was really surprised when i sprayed it on mine and my daughters hands that it has no smell and is exactly like water! I loved the fact that it wasn't like all the other anti-bacterial (no water) hand cleaners. I must admit, i was a bit sceptical at first as whether it truly would kill germs (99.9%!). A couple of weeks down the line and i have every confidence in it! You can spray it on anything toys,household surfaces and even in your mouth!. Ideal for cleaning dummys that have accidentally fallen on the floor or inside of feeding bottles. This is every Eco conscious person's dream as it is made from 100% natural ingredients. I did feel that this quite an expensive product but i'm sure it will last quite a long time.
Nemony, TheBabyWebsite

My grandson has eczema and allergies, and reacts to lots of products. Aquaint has been an amazing way to keep him and his dummies, high chair etc clean without harming his skin. I also use it myself as a hand sanitiser because I too have eczema. I can't praise it enough.
Linda Pirie

This product is fab - it's natural and so handy for cleaning baby's hands. I use it all the time. It is slightly expensive but well worth the money. I like that it sprays well, doesn't leak and dries quickly. I would highly recommend this product.
Lynne, TheBabyWebsite

Good spray, convenient and can be used on toys too for peace of mind. I'm in my second bottle and am getting one to kill the nasties on the communal toys at my baby group.
Jenny Man

Looks like water, tastes like water. I haven't had much chance to test it while out yet but I have started using it as deodorant and it works. If I start getting a bit whiffy in the afternoon I just spray on a bit of Aquaint and voila the whiff is gone. As a result I will probably keep it permanently in my handbag. Now thinking I might spray the kids' wooden play castle down with it as the neighbour saw a rat on there - since it's odourless water I can add peppermint or menthol which rats dislike and disinfect and deter in one go.
Limbrix, Ocado customer

Very good product, does what it claims, have bought the smaller size as well for handbag use. Won't go anywhere without it.
Miss Christine Dear

Purchased for my toddler. Handy size to transport and put in any bag. Product dries quickly when sprayed onto little ones hands. And then nothing to dispose of after use, no wipes to discard of. Fantastic! Happy in the knowledge it is perfectly safe to use on young children. I'm going to buy a larger size for home.
Jen, JoJo Maman Bébé Customer

This product is unbelievable. We use it all the time it even helped to clear up nappy rash. We use it in and out of the home and gives me great peace of mind.
Martin Zapico

I wanted to say what a fantastic product this is - I wish it had been around when I had my first two children (now 19 and 16). I'm very wary of chemicals and the effect it may have in the short and long term with my children's health, but obviously worry about cleanliness. Using Aquaint solves this, and with my one year old I can carry around the small handy sized bottle in my bag to use on literally anything that needs cleaning i.e. hands, dummies, highchairs in restaurants......I can use it for my hands when out and about too, as other cleansers flare up my dermatitis. I keep the large bottle at home to use around the house on toys etc, and refill the small bottle whenever I need to. Brilliant product - thank you.
Alison Wanden

This product almost seems too good to be true! Very handy, I use it loads, on everything! Really great to find a non- harsh chemical alternative. Will definitely buy again.
Scandypop, Amazon customer

Brilliant for cleaning dropped toys when your out and about, sticky hands, surfaces. So useful!
Savannah, JoJo Maman Bebe customer

I thought it was a good product and I like the fact it was natural. Travel size is great and fits nicely in my little ones bag. I would recommend this and would buy again.
Charlotte, TheBabyWebsite

Great product which has come in handy for so many things. Toys that need a little clean, sticky hands, dirty high chairs etc. We use cloth wipes and carry them about dry so on occasions we are eating out and not near a sink the little bottle has came in handy for wiping faces etc and is a perfect size to keep in a changing bag/glove box. The downside to this product is cost, for me £4.99 is just too high a price to justify sadly.
Christine, TheBabyWebsite

I found this very compact and easy to use and carry. After going to the playground I always encourage my little one to clean his hands. He loves the spray action and actually is very cooperative when he needs to "wash" his hands due to this cute spray device. It is small enough to carry in your pocket and is a good substitute for carrying wipes around everywhere. Doesn't smell like anything and dries pretty quick.
Wietske

It's odour free and really does just feel like washing with water - no residue left at all. All-in-all the small bottle size makes it totally portable to mean you never have to worry about being caught out.
Andy

LOVE this stuff! My son has just started crawling and this stuff is great for his little hands.
Serena, JoJo Maman Bebe customer

Worth every penny - as I change nappies constantly this was the best choice! No drying effects at all! Great product
Elegantmiss, Amazon customer

Fantastic product. Can be used for absolutely everything including hands, surfaces and cleaning toys. Seems to have done the trick as we've gone through winter without any horrible bugs at all!
Mel, JoJo Maman Bébé Customer

These are quite hard to find (although according to the manufacturer a big high street chain will stock these soon) but they are worth it. Very simple ingredients mean there are no cosmetic smells and other nasty chemicals. These really do evaporate into thin air. We put this in the diaper bag as this is the small portable size. I have no qualms using this on my toddler's skin.
PT

Is there anything this spray can't clean?!! Really great for days out and about and I'm always more than prepared to pay a little bit extra for a lot less chemicals! All good in my opinion!
Sarah Brett, JoJo Maman Bébé Customer

Aquaint is a brilliant product. I have purchased various antibacterial solutions since the arrival of my daughter 12 weeks ago only then to find that they are highly flammable, can cause allergic reactions and to 'consult a doctor if swallowed'. I have only just got around to ordering some now that our daughter is teething and putting everything in her mouth. I am going to recommend the product to lots of my Mummy friends.
C.W

Fantastic product hand for soother and teething toys
Teatray, JoJo Maman Bebe customer

I originally got this for my daughter as I chose not to use a soother. As a result, she is constantly sucking her thumb. Aquaint is the only product I trust to spray on her hands to keep them clean. She is now 9 months old and NEVER been sick... even though she's been in creche for 3 months! I now also carry the travel size with me to work, or when travelling with work.
Louise

I wish I had known about this earlier. I received a free sample. I had never heard of it before. What a great product. I will definetely keep it in from now on x
Emma, NCT Customer

Great product, so much easier and quicker than using a microwave steriliser. Would definitely recommend.
Lucy, JoJo Maman Bébé Customer

Been using this since birth of my girls (1 july) - no more drying of the hands due to heavy alcohol levels in other hand sanitisers! This product is friendly to our busy hands and effective too
Elegantmiss, Amazon Customer

This product is brilliant! Really handy to have in your bag, when your out and about and my baby drops his dummy I know I can just spray it with this!
Hanna Burns

This product is a must have for anyone with a baby. It's natural with no nasty preservatives. Bought it at a baby show last year and lasted for ages! So happy ocado stock it. Well done!
Hms1, Ocado customer

Carry this stuff with me in the changing bag. Who can tell with this sort if thing if it's working - you have to trust the invisible science but it gives me a little more peace of mind that I wouldn't have otherwise.
Zanne

Excellent product. Have it in the changing bag and use it to spray down his toys when fall down on the ground or anything that needs sterilising before if goes into his mouth. I feel much safer with this product knowing that I can do what I can to protect my baby from germs.
Silvia Massiah

Good product. I thought it was a good product and I like the fact it was natural. Travel size is great and fits nicely in my little ones bag. I would recommend this and would buy again.
Charlotte

What a fantastic idea!! Packed in my suitcase ready for holidays. How convenient for any Mum on the go. LOVE IT!!
Kate Smith.

I am using this product to clean baby's hand outside. This one is also useful to clean the baby toys which cannot be in washing machine or steriliser. I bought a larger bottle, too.
Annie, JoJo Maman Bébé Customer

We heard about Aquaint from another mum and thought the concept was great. ?Now we have little bottles in changing bags and a big bottle at home to make sure our little one's toys are always clean. Great idea and great product. Thanks Aquaint.
Simon Gill

5 stars- A must have spray. I use both the travel size and full size spray. It has so many uses around the house and out and about….the list is endless. A quick spray and youre done. Its gentle on mine and LO hands, it is quick to use and convenient. Every Mum should have this.
NCT Customer

Fantastic product. Just returned from a week holiday abroad with our six month old baby and this was great to use on bottle teats and toys! Highly recommend.
Suzanne, JoJo Maman Bébé Customer

I've been using Aquaint with my 3 year old who was reluctant to wash his hands. We love using it for everything now, including on his tongue blisters when he got hand, foot & mouth from playgroup - mmm, lovely! He understands the importance of washing off germs and I now carry some in my bag for emergencies. I actually do love the stuff and use it all the time on surfaces, hands, dummies, beakers etc. We had a bad year for bugs last winter so I think it can only do us good! Thanks!
Mel Sutton

Being first time parents we read lots of reviews and Aquaint appealed due to not containing harsh chemicals. We used the large bottle for cleaning our babies changing mat after changes, wiping his cot down, topping and tailing him. The small one is so handy in his changing bag to clean his hands and face, wipe down surfaces and even to use as a spray to clean him with our reusable baby wipes during nappy changes. We have been really impressed with Aquaint and will continue to use it and recommend it.
Jessica Bruss

As I've chosen not to use a soother for my daughter, she is constantly sucking at her hands. Aquaint is the only product I trust to spray on her hands to keep them clean.
Louise Owens

Thanks for that! That is amazing! I have been using the little one on dummies but will be buying the big bottles to use at home!
Hema Sujeevan

I have been using Aquaint for a few weeks now and am very impressed. It is so much easier and quicker than the microwave steriliser I was using before, and you don’t have to wait for the bottles to cool before you can use them. I am going on holiday next month and will definitely be taking a bottle of Aquaint with me as it so handy.
Lucy Holmes

I am so excited to have found your product and will take it when I go camping on Friday.
