Why choose organic baby clothing? Why Is Organic Cotton Better?
- The fabric lasts longer
- The fabric is more absorbent
- No bleaching or Harsh chemical have been used AT ALL on this product.
Organic cotton is produced without the use of
pesticides, chemicals or fertilisers. Each step from field to spinning is
certified by an independent authority IMO and GOTS. Yes its true conventional
cotton is a cheaper product than organic cotton but the environmental and
social environmental impacts are huge. We think of it as our little
contribution to our children’s future. Skin allergies are becoming quite common
in babies, and all babies have sensitive skin.
Your baby's skin is very delicate. Babies' skin loses moisture faster than adult skin, making it more vulnerable to dryness. It is three times thinner, making it more susceptible to harmful irritants and bacteria that can lead to infection and possible long-term ailments. It is also very porous and absorbs chemicals more easily. So it's important to ensure that whatever touches your baby's sensitive skin is organic and hypoallergenic.
Specifically your baby clothes should be organic
and allergy-free. Baby clothes should be made of 100% organic cotton. Organic
cotton baby clothes allow moisture to evaporate away from your baby's sensitive
skin, whereas synthetic clothes are not breathable. This means they can trap
moisture and cause irritation. Synthetic clothing is made from various
chemically produced fibres with added chemical dyes, formaldehyde resins, perfumes,
and other chemical treatments.
The reason why it's so important for your baby clothes to be organic is because conventional cotton crops are heavily sprayed with pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides. Conventional cotton fabrics are usually bleached, dyed and treated with softeners, formaldehydes, fire retardants, wrinkle and soil guard chemicals. These can all be harmful to a small developing baby. You want your baby clothing to be as pure as possible. Organic baby clothes may cost more than conventional baby clothes when you first buy them, but you definitely save money over the long term.
Conventional clothing starts to break down after frequent washing a lot sooner because these fibres go through so much abuse with dying, bleaching, scouring and all the chemical treatments. Organic cotton fabric has a longer life span since these fibres haven't been damaged and weakened by all the processing.
Organic cotton is a much stronger, yet softer fabric that lasts much longer. The best solution for every newborn baby and growing child in his or her early stage of life is 100% pure organic cotton clothing.
