organic chemistry

Organic. Here’s a word that’s been popping up a lot lately - And rightfully so. Not only is organic something we should be tuning into when choosing what we put into our bodies, but we should also be paying attention to what we put on our bodies. Especially our children’s bodies.

 Here’s the low-down…

Just like in some of the foods we purchase, cotton is often treated with harmful chemicals that cannot always be washed away. Therefore, our children’s skin, at its most sensitive state, is absorbing these harmful chemicals. FYI, even some organic choices are sometimes not 100% guaranteed chemical-free. This does not mean that all non-organic cotton is harmful to our bodies.  However, since I do believe our society needs to cut out more chemicals to keep up with our health I felt compelled to share. There are also some children that can ONLY wear organic clothing due to skin conditions such as Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex. In my Bitsy travels I’ve landed on some really great “organic” children’s clothing brands and below give you a small sampling of what they have to offer. (Not too bad, huh?!) When you have a chance to pop over to any of these adorable websites you can gain a greater understanding as to why this organic clothing movement is important. You will also have an opportunity to learn more about the fine print. Since I do not consider myself an expert on this topic, I thought I would graze the surface in order to introduce you to these great webshops + brands. *Note that not each of these web shops carry organic clothing this case, take a look out for their "organic" section.
