Organic cotton is kinder to sensitive skin.
This has been cited as the number one reason why parents buy organic clothes for their kids. Sensitive skin has a tendency to react to about anything so it is particularly important not to expose it to clothes containing irritant substances. During the conversion of cotton into conventional clothing, many hazardous materials are used and added to the product, including silicone waxes, harsh petroleum scours, softeners, heavy metals, flame and soil retardants, ammonia, and formaldehyde. Because it hasn’t undergone treatment that can cause skin to react, organic cotton is the best choice for sensitive skin.
Contain no pesticides or insecticides.
Conventional cotton cultivation uses approximately 25% of the world’s insecticides and more than 10% of the pesticides (including herbicides, insecticides, and defoliants.). (Allan Woodburn) .According to findings published by the Organic Trade Association , Aldicarb, cotton’s second best selling insecticide and most acutely poisonous to humans, can kill a man with just one drop absorbed through the skin, yet it is still used in 25 countries and the US. Certified Organic Cotton is grown using natural fertilizers and contain no hazardous pesticides.
Insecticides are the most hazardous pesticides and have been linked to health problems from asthma to cancer in addition to being responsible for a wide-scale contamination of soil and ground water.
100% Organic cotton clothes are softer than non-organic cotton garments.
Ideal for eczema sufferers.
Because it doesn’t contain all the chemicals found in conventionaly grown cotton and because it is softer to the skin, eczema sufferers do better wearing organic cotton clothes.
Protect the environment.
