3 reasons to buy organic cotton socks
3 reasons why organic cotton is the healthier choice for socks
1. Organic cotton is safer
In a recent study from Spain, 9 out of 10 socks were found to contain BPA (Bisphenol A) and Parabens. Bisphenols and Parabens are endocrine disruptors associated with certain dysfunctions that can lead to illnesses in both children and adults
Babies immune and nervous systems are still developing. Babies often chew their socks, making them more vulnerable to exposure.
The GOTS certification (the gold standard for organic cotton) prohibits the use of parabens, phatalates and BPA (amongst other harmful substances). Socks are tested to ensure the absence of these chemicals / toxins in every part of the production process.
2. Organic cotton is more breathable
While not scientifically proven, organic cotton socks tends to be more gentle on the skin. This helps us explain why so many little ones with Eczema and sensitive feet react well to organic cotton socks.
Socks need to be breathable to maintain feet health and reduce risk of flare-ups, and natural cotton (not necessarily organic) is one of the most breathable fabrics available.
3. Organic cotton is sustainable
Organic cotton socks are not only healthy for us but also healthy for our planet. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
Why is it healthier for us? By doing our part to minimize environmental impact of our consumption, we are creating a healthier planet for our children and our children's children.
I started Q for Quinn as it was impossible to find healthy, fun, socks for my baby boy that didn't irritate his skin.
Since then, we have made a commitment to create happy and healthy products that are are gentle on the skin and our planet.
Every pair of socks and tights are designed with our own children in mind and produced in facilities that are GOTS and OEKO-Tex Standard 100 certified and free from harmful substances.
