Why Cotton

Let’s start off by saying, your skin is the largest organ on your body. If that is the case – and it is – why put chemically-laden contaminates on your skin? Your underwear is the closest thing to your skin, and it is touching the most sensitive part of your body.

Environmental and personal benefits

Organic cotton

The making of organic underwear has less processing, which means it uses no dangerous chemicals, and uses less energy. Furthermore, since the production of organic cotton does not involve the use of chemicals, it causes fewer allergies. Organic cotton apparel also reduces respiratory problems and smells pleasant.

Buying organic promotes healthy soil, because organic agriculture uses composted manure, rather than synthetic fertilisers, which contain toxins and pollutants that poison the water, fish, and birds. Its production also promotes and enhances biodiversity and biological cycles.

Organic cotton is breathable against your skin

Cotton is a great solution for hot summer days. It’s breathability keeps you cooler during the dog days. Cotton clothing also won’t produce static cling, and it washes out odor better than synthetics.

Organic underwear absorbs your sweat, and the toxins you release from your body. If you are not wearing organic, there are so many chemicals in your underwear that it would be difficult for it to absorb anything. That means the sweat is just sticking to your skin. That is pretty uncomfortable, don’t you think?

Organic cotton

Cotton underwear reduces risk of infection

You probably already know that cotton is the best material for underwear, but you may not know what your underwear is actually made of. Polyester, nylon, and other synthetic fabrics are often used to make undergarments, but these fabrics may hold moisture close to your skin, encouraging the growth of yeast and leading to infection. Cotton, on the other hand, breathes and absorbs moisture, keeping you dry and lowering your risk of infection. Cotton undies are definitely the way to go!

Cotton is Hypoallergenic

People with sensitive skin often have to be very careful about what kind of clothes they wear, and they almost always turn to cotton. It’s hypoallergenic, whereas synthetic fibers are much more likely to irritate your skin, whether or not you’re prone to allergies. Cotton’s natural—so you don’t have to worry.

Cotton and Exercise

Cotton-rich clothing (anything over 50% cotton) is perfect for exercise for a lot of reasons. First, cotton breathes easier, keeping you cool during exercise. Second, cotton releases odors easier in the wash, meaning your gym clothes won’t smell as much as synthetics do. Cotton clothing is also softer, meaning less discomfort during a workout, and with a little stretch fiber added, they’re just as comfy!
