Mater Baby Wash is a lightly foaming cleanser developed for daily use on your baby’s skin and scalp. Specifically formulated for the sensitive skin of newborns, this gentle tear-free formula will help keep your baby’s skin soft and protected by retaining the natural oils and moisture in your baby’s skin.
Mater Baby Wash is designed to gently cleanse your baby’s skin, hair and scalp. The ultra-mild formula also conditions as it cleanses leaving your baby’s skin fresh and smooth.
In a convenient pump pack Mater Baby Wash is ideal for placing by the bath or in the shower for easy use at your baby’s bath time. Mater’s custom, recyclable bottle has been designed with a stable wide base and grips to assist in single handed use.
Pump a small amount of Mater Baby Wash into a running bath. Gently wash your baby’s skin and scalp and pat dry. If applied directly onto your baby’s skin, rinse and towel dry. Mater Baby Wash is also suitable for children and adults—your entire family.
Mater Baby Wash is available now through our online store and from our retail partners.
Newborn and infant skin is thinner and more delicate than developed adult skin—the use of products designed specifically for your baby’s skin is beneficial 1 &2.

The baby wash is so gentle on bubs skin and doesn't dry it out at all. It also smells amazing! One of the best baby washes I've used! :)
Sarah from Woolloongabba
This is the best baby wash I have found! It smells gorgeous and leaves bub feeling soft and clean without that squeaky feeling other washes cause by stripping all the oil. A little goes a long way too which is great. A wonderful product that the whole family loves.
Leah from Hillcrest
Lovely texture and not too odours to override the gorgeous smell of a newborn.
Stephanie from Toowong
I trust Mater Mothers only produce the finest products for babies as they understand how important their wellbeing is.
Anna from corinda
I don't often use creams and lotions however it is winter and opted to give it a try. Beautiful and fresh and non- greasy!
Leizl from Fortitude Valley
When my baby girl was born prematurely, I was determined to make sure that I only ever used the best products on her. The Mater Baby Wash is not only gentle on her skin, it also leaves her hair feeling so soft and smelling beautiful. The tear-free formula also gives me peace of mind that she will not experience any discomfort should she get it in her eyes; thus allowing us to both enjoy her bath time in a calm and relaxed manner.
Rachell from Camp Hill
Very pleasant to use - baby seemed relaxed!
Tiffany from Murarrie
Feels very moisturising on the skin and doesn't irritate my baby's sensitive skin. My son is prone to skin irritations but he was ok after mater baby wash. I like how it doesn't have irritating fragrance.
egle from caringbah
Lovely gentle bath wash with a subtle fragrance that is just right for a new baby. Lots of bubbles too!
Linzi from Zilzie
I adore the Mater Mothers' Baby Wash! We have used this from the day we brought our bundle of joy home and still love it. A beautifully soft wash that gets our little one clean and leaves him smelling gorgeous. I love it so much that I use it too. A great Aussie made product that supports a great cause!
