Organic cotton bed sheets are hypoallergenic largely due to the lack of chemical additives. Organic cotton is produced without the use of harmful chemicals, insecticides or pesticides, and the farmers do not use genetically modified seeds. The bed sheets are also not treated with formaldehyde resin or any toxic chemical fabric finishes.
This is why organic cotton is softer, gentler and more durable than conventional cotton, and SOJAO believes that because you sleep in close contact with your bedding materials (and for years), organic cotton may be among the most health-protective choices you can make.
Besides the environmental benefits, the quality of the textiles produced from organic cotton is substantially higher. Organic cotton plants produce longer-stable cotton fibers which yield stronger yarn and more durable fabrics. Also, the omission of chlorine bleaches and other harsh chemicals implies that the fabrics are less "stressed" and likely to wear longer.
Moreover there are indications that organic cotton fabrics are more gentle to the skin, while as certain conventional fabrics may produce skin irritations and allergic reactions in sensitive subjects.
SOJAO organic bed sheets are GOTS-certified. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
That means that we:
1. Only use cotton organically grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilisers, and without Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)
2. Use low-impact, environmentally friendly dyes in accordance with the GOTS requirements
3. Support fair trade employment throughout our supply chain in accordance with the International Labour Organization (ILO)
We’re championing organic cotton because we believe that we have an obligation to save the planet, however cliché that might sound!
