Tip of the Month
Many of the fabrics we wear are made up of over 2000 different types of chemicals. Because our skin is unable to flush toxins, like our digestive system does, our skin starts absorbing these chemicals. As they enter our bloodstream, the toxins can become detrimental to our health causing all sorts of negative effects like hormonal dysfunctions, behavior problems, immune system problems, digestive system problems, skin problems, cancer, and so much more.
The best fabrics to wear are organic versions of natural fibers, like cotton, linen, and wool. Truly organic fabric won’t have any harmful chemicals in them, also making them a great option for the environment. Another fabric that is a safer option is Tencel, also known as Lyocell. However, Tencel just produces the fiber, not the actual fabric, so confirm that the company you’re buying from also cares about using safe chemicals in their productions. Cupro is a great silk substitute creating a beautiful flowy fabric. Plus, it’s a practical option because it can be put in a washing machine and drier.
So, when it comes to buying clothes for yourself or others please make healthy choices. You and your loved ones deserve it!
