The Best Open Cell Polyurethane Foam for Super Soft Sponges for Baby’s Delicate Skin

Daily baths aren’t generally necessary, since it’s possible to dry out a baby's delicate skin, however, experts recommend bathing a baby three times a week until they’re a year old.

Whether parents choose the morning or an evening bedtime ritual, it’s important to ensure the materials used to wash a baby with are kind, gentle and hypoallergenic when it comes into contact with skin - especially when babies are more prone to rashes.

We specially designed our open cell polyurethane foam sponges to be super soft and silky to the touch for a baby’s bath time. They’re much smoother and gentler to delicate skin compared to regular bath sponges for adults. Now sold to consumers by a national value retail group in their baby care, Zouch's open cell polyurethane foam is protecting baby's skin during bath time across the UK.

Benefits of open cell polyurethane foam

Open cell structure

Open cell foams are produced by forming bubbles within a liquid and as the tiny foam cells aren’t completely closed, air fills the open spaces inside - this gives foam a more ‘sponge’ like structure that absorbs liquid.

High density foam

High in density (70 Kgs/m3) and exceptionally durable, our open cell foams can withstand regular use without crumbling.

Super soft

Designed to feel super soft and silky to the touch, they’re especially gentle and can be used on those with delicate and sensitive skin, such as babies. They’re also snow white in colour, but can be manufactured in pink or fluorescent yellow subject to volume.

Hypoallergenic & Non-Toxic

Our open cell polyurethane foam is hypoallergenic and our foam is exclusively designed for contact with sensitive skin.

Quick drying

Due to its open cell structure, our polyurethane foam is especially quick drying and can be easily cleaned.
