These days, when we think of “organic”, we think of “health” and “environment”. And when have a baby who is delicate and fragile, it is but natural to consider going organic as well.
Why Go Organic?
Things organic have been slowly gaining popularity. When we talk about organic, we talk about agricultural products that are grown and processed minus the chemicals that can potentially harm our body and damage the environment.
It is not surprising, therefore, that a lot of people who are health and environment-conscious are going organic. Many industries that manufacture the products that we enjoy today have embraced the use of organic materials in their products. Food and beverages, textile, toys, household products, personal care, cosmetics, pet products and pet food are just some of the products that have already gone “organic”.
Benefits of Organic Baby Clothes
The use of organic fabric materials has been practiced for quite a while now. Organic and natural fibers like cotton, wool, and silk are widely used to manufacture baby clothing such as shirts, sweaters, baby hair accessories, swaddles, etc. So, what does it mean to you and your baby when you choose to buy baby clothes that are organic?
First, baby’s skin is very sensitive and prone to allergies and irritation. Some fabrics are notorious for causing rashes and irritation. There are certain chemicals as well that are absorbed by the skin and become toxins which affect your baby’s health and overall development.
Second, the organic fabric is relatively stronger compared to conventional fabric since it did not go through chemical processing that weakens the material. This means you can wash the cloth over and over without greatly damaging the fabric as against conventional baby cloth. It may be a bit expensive at first but organic baby clothes last longer and can be handed down to your next child, which makes it a wise investment. Organic baby clothes are also soft and gentle to the skin and are comfortable to wear.
Be Cautious Though
But let us not just take the manufacturer’s word for it. Even though organic products are considered safe to use, there is no guarantee that the organic raw materials did not go through some chemical treatment during the production of its final product. That is unless we look for a third-party certification that examines and ensures that the product you buy is 100% organic.
