Skin is your core protection against the elements, and a little known fact is that skin is actually the largest organ in the human body. It’s made up of three key layers: epidermis, dermis, and subcutis. With the epidermis being the outermost layer, it protects your muscles and organs from harm such as UV radiation, chemicals, physical damage, and bacteria. For this reason, we need to keep it healthy and reduce its exposure to damage.
One of the key ways we do so is keeping it moisturised and hydrated with high SPF creams or ointments, in doing so we provide our skin with the vitality it needs to protect us. However it is the case for many people to have sensitive skin, or even skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis if left unchecked. This can cause immense skin irritation and sensitivity, which requires care.
The other main way of protecting our skin is through clothing, however in the modern day of online shopping the vast majority of clothing is polyester based and put through multiple chemical processes. Some of these procedures require thousands of different mixtures of dyes and agents, which some people may have allergies to. For this reason, we recommend garments which are as pure and natural as possible. Products from our organic cotton range are 100% pure and free of such chemicals, being crafted to organic standards. These clothes may even reduce the irritation to the skin, so they are a skin-friendly and sustainable alternative to other fast fashion garments.
