WHY TAKE THE RISK?
PROPER DECON IS CRUCIAL
Exposure to fire, flame retardants, and high-toxin synthetic materials puts firefighters at a 14% higher risk of dying from cancer than the general population, according to NIOSH.
As body temperatures rise in protective gear, the skin’s absorption of toxins increases, making proper on-site decontamination crucial to long-term health.
Hero Wipes is specifically formulated to remove toxic, cancer-causing carcinogens from firefighters’ skin before they leave the scene of a fire.
A patent-pending balanced blend of ingredients isolates harmful chemical compounds and traps them in the wipe.
Hero Wipes is verified by the Environmental Working Group for its commitment to using safe ingredients, providing transparency and engaging in quality manufacturing practices.
“We selected Hero Wipes because it was proven effective at removing soot. Now to learn that it is also effective at removing the heavy metal toxins that we are exposed to is an added value."

Hero Wipes shelf life is 2 years.

The aloe vera extract used in our Hero Wipes is a safe ingredient. It comes from decolorized whole leaf aloe vera plant with less than 2 ppm of aloin (anthraquinone). The concentration of the aloe vera extract in Hero Wipes is less than 0.00005%. At this concentration the aloe vera provides no absorptive qualities. The aloe vera extract is in the formula because it is part of a blend of botanical skin-calming ingredients.
Hero Wipes acquired the Rescue Wipes brand in 2018. Hero Wipes are larger, stronger, made in the USA, EWG verified, lab tested and proven more effective than Rescue Wipes. The Hero Wipes brand is the new and improved Rescue Wipes and is the only product line we offer today.
