Why Organic?...

homeBetter for Babies (and Mummys) Skin

The Skin is the Largest Organ of the body and naturally what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies.Babies young skin is much thinner and more sensitive than an adults, their developing bodies are more suseptable to Chemicals in products, even residues of Chemicals, used to grow and process textiles. Chemicals from fragrances or residue on clothing absorbed through the skin can contribute to Allergies, Skin sensitivities and even aggravate respiritory problems. 

Longevity 

Clothes made with Organic Cotton withstand washing and wearing much better than the alternatives. The lack of processing in producing Organic Clothing means that they will last for so much longer that younger siblings will also benefit from their use. 

Saving the Environment

As Cotton is not a food product some of the most Toxic aggressive pesticides can be used, the very same that are responsible for poisoning rivers and surrounding wildlife. Textiles production uses thousands of chemicals to clean, bleach, prepare, dye, print and finish textiles. Many of the chemicals used are extremely Toxic.  Organic Farming and textile production prohibits the use of harmful pesticides and fertilisers and ensures strict standards on any chemicals used in the production of textiles meaning these nataural fibres are renewable and biodegradable. More about the shop.
