Saving Baby's Skin with Organyc Cotton
Saving Baby's Skin with Organic Cotton
Conventional cotton wool may contain harmful chemicals that can be bad for baby
Cotton wool is generally perceived as perfect for use in cleansing baby's delicate skin, whether it's in the nappy area or elsewhere, but cotton crops are subject to heavy use of hazardous insecticides, with residues remaining once the cotton is harvested. Raw cotton may also be subject to bleaching and dyeing before being processed into the everyday products available on the high street.
A baby's delicate skin is thin and fragile, so it's important to take extra care to keep it free from distressing irritation and skin reactions to these harsh chemicals. Chlorine bleach is commonly used to whiten the cotton and its harsh properties also produce harmful by-products that remain after processing.
"Cotton crops are subject to heavy use of hazardous insecticides, with residues remaining once the cotton is hervested."
In contrast, organic cotton is free from insecticides and chemical treatments making it the perfect choice for those gentle clean-ups and keeping baby's skin healthy and comfortable.
Sharon Little from Organyc says:
“Organyc products are made with certified 100% organic cotton which has been grown without the use of pesticides or bleached with chlorine during production. Cotton wool pads, balls and baby wipes are in contact with baby's skin several times a day and it's especially important to consider the health impact of exposure to these chemicals in using non-organic products. The baby wipes in particular are perfect for the nappy area, yet gentle enough to be used on hands and face".
It's a small change to switch to organic cotton products, but the benefits to your baby's skin are enormous.
