Why Cotton is the Best Choice for Clothing

Despite what you might think, we all have sensitive skin. We need to use care when we get dressed, use lotion, or buy soap. Dressing in the gentlest materials possible is something we should all strive for. It preserves our skin, and what’s underneath it.

Farmers who grow cotton crops use roughly twenty-five percent of chemicals and ten percent of all the world’s fertilizers. That’s a startling statistic. Even more surprising if I told you that cotton comprises only three percent of crops in the world. Three percent of the world’s crops use a quarter of the world’s chemicals.

Why Cotton is the Best Choice for Clothing

It means that cotton contains a lot of bad things for your body and the environment, even after it’s been processed. Those chemicals are hard to wash out, and when you put that against your body, it could cause a lot of problems.

Processing cotton with chemicals in it contaminates water supplies, causes health problems for laborers hand-picking and processing it, and leaves behind residue and other harmful byproducts.

Not only does cotton clothing contain residue, but it has bleach and dye in it. This can irritate skin, causing rashes and other health problems. Sadly, the most natural, softest material in the world can so easily become the worst thing for your skin and everything else it comes in contact with.

Organic cotton doesn’t have harsh chemicals or fertilizers. When you dress yourself in Cotton On clothing, you ensure that your skin is as healthy as possible. It is gentle and comfortable. From underwear and pajamas to shirts and dresses, Cotton On clothing is fun, flirty, and affordable.

Cotton On clothing is sustainable and good for the environment. It costs less for farmers to grow because they don’t have to spend money on fertilizers or pesticides. They also don’t put themselves or others at risk. Anyone working on the farm or at the factory don’t have to deal with the byproducts of any chemicals.

Organic cotton doesn’t strain water sources and reduces water shortages because it is eight percent rain fed. Allowing cotton to grow in a natural environment without added chemicals and synthetic resources puts much less pressure on everyone.

Our bodies were made to exist in this world without chemicals, and they thank us at the end of the day when we treat them with natural things. Cotton is the best choice for our skin and the environment.
