Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

As any and all parents should know, baby skin is very gentle and because of this also suseptible to chemicals. A babies skin will react sometimes harshly to products that adult skin does not react to. This is the reason why there are millions of products out there that are formulated specifically for your baby. Two eco friendly baby products that you should be aware of when considering your baby's health are chemical free cotton and bamboo.

Chemical Free Cotton

The first bit of information to know is that not all cotton fabric is created equal. Statistically speaking, until 1995 25% of all the insecticides and 10% of all pesticides used worldwide is in the cooton market. This figure has dropped significantly due to studies proving that many illnesses and other skin conditions can be directly linked to the chemicals used in the production of cotton. Chemical free cotton is grown without pesticides and insecticides so ehnce the term eco friendly baby products when refering to baby clothing.

Here is a bit of information you should know. At sleep, our bodies are 5 times more affected and influenced by our environment than when awake. Now apply this knowledge to your newborn baby's skin and what do you come up with? A potential for disaster. The links below will direct you to where you can purchase chemical free or eco friendly baby products for your newbie.

Bamboo Clothing

There may be a few out there who ahave never heard of bamboo being used in eco friendly baby products but it is true. Bamboo is even considered in many ways better than chemical free cotton. Here are a few facts about bamboo that make it so great.

  • Bamboo grows sometimes up to 4 feet per day with out the use of insecticides or pesticides and even fertilizer
  • It requires very little water to grow and can survive in both drought and flood conditions.
  • A stand of bamboo releases 35% more oxygen into the air than a stand of trees the same size.
  • It draws moisture from the skin which makes it a good material both for work and play
  • Ii is softer than cotton with a feel like cashmere or silk and it dries twice as fast as cotton

Another great attribute of bamboo is its ability to be dyed easily. This prevents the need to use any harsh chemicals to aid in the dying process.

The use of any of the above two materials when buying any eco friendly baby products will greatly reduce baby skin irritation and increase your childs comfort level.
