Your Guide To Organic Baby Clothes

Don't panic, it's organic!

With buying organic baby clothes you can be sure to have healthy, safe, eco-friendly, non-toxic and nonhazardous baby clothing. And that's what baby clothes and actually all clothing should be!

As this cute baby tee says in a funny way: 'Don't panic, it's organic'!

Recently, organic clothing in general - and not just for babies - has got a boost. That's good news! And good news also is that organic clothing does not anymore have that dull and boring 'special organic look' it used to have. Meanwhile, it's cute, colorful and en vogue, too. So, except for its outstanding safety and for a slightly higher price, - and sometimes not even that - it visually hardly differs from any other clothing anymore.



Facts about the human skin:

Did you know that the skin is our biggest organ? It contributes substantially to our metabolism and to body respiration. Our skin is sensitive to warmth and cold, to humidity and dryness and to touches. Not only the application of cosmetics can affect the function of the skin and with it our well-being, our choice of clothes also has a huge impact on it.

Pure and natural materials, such as pure cotton, linen, ramie, silk, hemp, bamboo or soy or mixtures of these, allow our skin to breathe and make the temperature and humidity balance easier.

Companies manufacturing organic cotton baby clothes typically buy their clothing materials from so-called organic growers. This means that the cotton used in the baby clothing hasn't been treated with pesticides, and the wool did not come in contact with any chemical solutions. Pure and natural are the two main goals of organic producers and growers.

Global Organic Textile Standard - GOTS - Watch out for the quality seal!

When buying natural baby clothes and organic clothing in general, watch out for the GOTS quality seal: According to the International Association of Natural Textile Industry, this is the minimum standard that distinguishes eco-friendly, conscious textiles. It is an internationally and worldwide established quality seal that sets benchmarks for environmental issues and socially accountable production from harvest to manufacturing to labeling. Companies must apply for certification including on-site inspection.
