What is organic baby clothing?
Organic Cotton Baby Clothes are the baby clothes that are made from Organic Cotton, which means that it is cotton grown without using any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Only organic manure and natural pesticides are used on them.
Organic cotton is a natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre. It benefits cotton producers and the environment in developing countries by avoiding the harmful effects of toxic pesticides, and the reduced cost of production improves social conditions.
A summary of its benefits is discussed below;
- They are Good for Your Babies Sensitive Skin
The little one’s skin is overly sensitive, and you must ensure that anything it comes into contact with it is safe. According to Johnson and Johnson’s website, a baby’s skin is much thinner, far more fragile and less oily than that of an adult. Besides, it generates less melanin, thus more susceptible to the harmful UV rays of the sun. It is also less resistant to bacteria and due to its thinness; the baby may not be able to maintain its inner temperature. It would be damaging on the skin if you dressed the young one in clothing laden with irritants or chemicals.
Organic baby clothing reduces you child’s exposure to toxins thus ensuring that his or her sensitive skin is protected.
- Increased Durability
Organic fabric is stronger since it has been through less processing compared to regular fabric. You can wash organic clothing for up to 10 times more that clothing made using conventional materials. Considering the rate at which you need to change your baby’s clothing, it makes sense to go for clothing that offers the most durability.
- Saves You Money
Because of the durability aspect of organic clothing, you’re more likely to save more money in the long run in comparison with inorganic clothing. Also, because organic clothing does not expose your child’s skin to harmful chemicals, you will spend less on the medication used to treat skin diseases. Alongside with helping you save money, organic baby clothing also supports a healthier environment.
- Protects Water Quality of Water
Because organic clothing does not contain any chemicals, it helps preserve the quality of water. The water used to wash clothes ends up in sewer lines and later to the soil. Once it comes into contact with the ground, it can lead to pollution further affecting anything that grows on it. Without harmful chemicals on the fields, however, healthier plants can be grown. Thus, organic clothing prevents soil erosion while supporting a robust economy at the same time.
