We Help Make Your Nights Easier
GoodNites is a parent favorite in terms of performance and based on their parent company, Kimberly-Clark's restricted substances list they also claim to have excluded a lot of toxic ingredients. They do not however have any information as an individual entity what they have done for the environment, or human and animal rights. So, how do they stack up against the Conscious Score? See why they received an F Rating rating below.
GoodNites has a full write up on their website letting us know the ingredients they use in their diapers. We found on their FAQ page that they do not add any fragrance but we are not sure if they are hypoallergenic as it does not state this one their website, but we have found conflicting information on other sellers' sites. We also found this List of Restricted Substances on the Kimberly-Clark site which covered what we did not find on the GoodNites website. Based on this list the diapers are also free from phthalates, some VOCs, BPAs and heavy metals, parabens, and natural rubber latex (and much more, take a peek). Chemicals not listed are elemental chlorine, specific VOCs such as methylene chloride, xylene, butadiene. We also find "printing inks" and "colorants" as ambiguous ingredients. They also do not state if the pulp is Chlorine free or if it is sustainably sourced. They also do not have any 3rd party certifications backing up any of these claims. Based on our standards and their transparency GoodNites gets an F for the Ingredient Pillar of the Conscious Score.

What is not in their diaper
GoodNites do not have a list of "free from" ingredients on their site, but they do have this on the Kimberly-Clark site witch covers Restricted Substances Lists.
While there is no specific environmental report on the GoodNites brand, their Parent Company Kimberly Clark has publicly stated their CO2 emissions, has reduced their water use, has 87% of tissue fiber from environmentally preferred fiber sources globally. We really like the progress that Kimberly-Clark is making as a whole but wish that their progress was communicated by the company so we could see how GoodNites is making their own impact. Because as we see it, they are using mostly petroleum based ingredients, they do not use sustainably sourced wood pulp, and have not done much in the way of environmental impact as their own entity in the US. Based on Kimberly-Clark's sustainability reporting and GoodNites transparency, they get an F for the Environmental Pillar of The Conscious Score.
Kimberly-Clark has policies and procedures for fair pay, indigenous rights, anti-slavery and much more. We have not seen any certifications that hold them accountable to their policies and cannot tell if GoodNites is also held accountable on the human rights front. Based on Kimberly-Clark's policies and GoodNites transparency, they get an F for the Environmental Pillar of The Conscious Score.
GoodNites are sold in countries that require animal testing and they are not vegan. GoodNites receives an F for the Human Rights pillar of The Conscious Score.
