Organic cotton: features and benefits
The base of our products is organic cotton. Therefore, we will tell you what it is, what its characteristics and benefits are.
What is?Organic cotton comes from a sustainable crop that must meet a series of requirements that must be certified.

Those who grow this product only use ecological inputs. In addition, this type of plantation follows a rotation system to conserve the soil and is harvested by hand, since harvesting with machines involves spraying the plantation with chemical herbicides. But there is more. For cotton to be considered organic, it has to be processed into a yarn that does not use chemical dyes or bleaches. The difference is clear: conventional cotton cultivation uses more than 10% of the pesticides and more than 25% of the insecticides consumed in the world, products that are not eliminated from the fabric or from the environment, which It can only cause problems on the skin of those who use it, but also contaminates the soil and water, and damages the environment.
