Okay, let's be honest here, do you know the difference between conventional cotton and organic cotton? :/
Well, if you don't, you're not alone. Even as a mummy of 2 young boys, I don't know the difference too, until I was introduced to Little Suite. When it comes to outfitting our little ones, cotton sounds like a safe and natural option, right? WRONG!
Did you know that cotton is one of the most heavily chemically treated crops in the world?
Conventional cotton fabric is processed with chlorine bleach. Hydrogen Peroxide and formaldehyde are also applied in the processing of the fabrics. Eeeeks! Therefore, this is very unsafe for a little newborn's skin. Furthermore, the use of chemicals in processing weakens the fibers and hence, conventional cotton products wear out faster than organic cotton ones.
Why choose organic cotton?
1) Unlike cotton, organic cotton clothing are produced without chemicals throughout the entire production process. This helps to prevent harmful chemicals from finding their way into your baby's bloodstream! Organic cotton does not use any of the myriad synthetic fertilizers or pesticides on offer today from chemical companies.
2) Furthermore, organic cotton is incredibly soft and comfortable to wear next to the skin. The pure fibers allow your baby's skin to breathe naturally. It does not irritate sensitive skin or cause allergies, which is especially important for babies' skin and respiratory system.
3) Organic cotton is also stronger because its fibers have not been damaged by harsh chemicals. Therefore, organic cotton clothes are able to last longer too! And this helps to save more money in the long run. Which is a big plus for mothers out there! ;)
Choosing organic cotton clothing cuts down the exposure children have to toxins. As such, I'm happy to introduce to all mummies and mummies-to-be on the beautiful line called Little Suite! Little Suite provides a collection of soft and comfortable organic cotton clothing, soft toys and accessories for kids and babies that are free from harmful chemicals!
