All our SupCare Conscious underwear garments are made of 96% organic GOTS cotton.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. The aim of the standard is to define world-wide recognized requirements that ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certificate is your assurance that all regulations are complied with, so you and the planet can benefit from all the wonderful benefits of organic, sustainable products.
What are the benefits of organic?
Organic cotton farms reduce pollution, conserve water, increase soil fertility, and use less energy. Farming without synthetic pesticides is also better for birds, animals as well as people who live close to the area. Organic cotton is made from natural seeds, uses less water than regular cotton and there is no use of pesticides or other harmful chemicals. For the people who produce organic garments, sustainable fashion also means better working conditions and fairer pay. As a result, SupCare Conscious cotton products are safer for the skin, contributes to a cleaner planet and better working conditions.
Your personal benefits
Because organic clothing is not grown with the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, it’s better for you, as the consumer. Your skin is the largest organ on your body, and it absorbs what it’s exposed to. If you are aware of the health benefits of organic foods, you might not want chemicals to be rubbed into your body through your skin.
Organic materials are often hypoallergenic due to the chemical-free production, so they’re good to your body, especially if you’re someone with sensitive skin.
