Chief's Large Responder Wipes Carton (16 Wipes per Carton)Infused with Micellar Water, the wipes effectively clean dirt, oil, soot and other hydrocarbons from the skin. Micelles not only remove toxins and contaminants but also return much needed hydration to the skin, lost while working in hot and demanding conditions.

Importantly, Responder Wipes® do not contain any Aloe vera or Parabens – common ingredients found in products used as an alternative, like baby wipes. These ingredients open the pores of the skin and push the contaminants further into the pores. Responder Wipes® are thicker and more durable than alternative products, they do not pill or tear when wiping down the contaminated areas.

Convenient packaging options reduce waste and makes Responder Wipes® perfect for use while still attending an incident.
