Hazardous substances are commonly used in processing textiles; these chemicals can leach out of the products over time and get into our bodies. Also, conventional cotton uses 24% of all insecticide and 11% of all pesticides used in the world each year. Organic towels are a clean, sustainable alternative to conventional cotton and are a much purer fibre to put next to your skin.
Organic Cotton is naturally waxy, so the organic towels will need a few washes to reach maximum absorbency, but these organic cotton towels do wash beautifully...but make sure you DON’T use fabric softener, it reduces absorbency.
