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.

Baby seems to love this wash when he has the bath. The baby wash is very gentle and makes bath time so easy and enjoyable. I think I will stick to it till he grows up.
Joy from Sunnybank Hills
This is the only baby wash i will use it smells great and leaves bubs (and mums) skin so soft and smooth. I recommend this to all my friends - i will never go back to using other brands. It is excellent quality for money.

The Mater Mother's baby wash is our particular favourite; a beautifully fragranced product which leaves the little one soft, clean and smelling absolutely gorgeous. Thankfully the wash, along with the rest of the range very reasonably priced and suitable for even the most sensitive babies. With all products being researched and designed by people who know what features baby products should have, Mater Mother's have created a great AUSTRALIAN product range and a baby wash that we love for our 'little miracle'!
Leah from Hillcrest
Mater baby wash smells amazing without being overpowering. It was so gently on my daughters skin and left it feeling wonderful and soft.
Renee from Eatons hill
Baby smells clean and fresh after her bath in the Mater Baby Wash, without an overpowering perfumed smell. Mater Baby Wash doesn't dry out her skin even during the winter months and it suds up wonderfully, giving her the bubbles that she loves to play with and making bath time lots of fun!
Kay from Brinsmead
