Many companies offer a healthy alternative to clothes for today's babies. The chemical-free and pesticide-free cotton that our entire line is part of is certified by Control Union, which ensures that the ingredients in our clothing line not only contain chemicals and pesticides, but are also grown organically.
The importance of organic baby clothing without chemicals and pesticides is supported by the latest statistics on the content of harmful elements in conventional cotton. Also, it is very easy to buy organic baby clothes from Rise The Community online.
According to Lotus Organics, "Millions of children in the United States get up to 35% of the life expectancy of certain carcinogenic pesticides by age five from food, contaminated drinking water, household use, and transfer of pesticides."
The most surprising aspect of this statement is that children get this exposure at a time when they are most susceptible to these toxic elements.
This dilemma is fully explained on the Johnson and Johnson website, which states, "Babies' skin is thinner, more fragile, and less oily than adults.
Baby's skin also produces less melanin; a substance used to protect it from sunburn is less resistant to sunburn, bacteria and harmful substances in the environment, especially when irritated.
Babies also sweat less efficiently than others, making it more difficult to maintain internal body temperature.
"Babies' skin is also more porous, meaning contaminants can enter their system at higher concentrations and when these contaminants are worn on clothing that can be in contact with the baby's skin for hours, the potential for toxic exposure increases dramatically.
