15+ of the Best Organic Clothing Brands for Babies

Organic clothing brands for babies are a must to protect their sensitive skins. Here are some of the best brands

By Lora O’Brien

A baby’s skin is such an incredible thing. Soft, smooth and somehow floral in scent, it’s an indication of perfect health and the beautiful blossoming of a new life.

To protect this delicate wonder, it’s essential to use only the most natural, non-irritating of products – and that includes organic clothing brands for babies. Why, you may ask?

Well, there’s lots of evidence that clothing can be toxic. For example, conventionally produced cotton is not only one of the world’s most heavily sprayed crops in terms of pesticides – including the very nasty glyphosate – but is also  considered to be a major polluter of the fashion industry. After it is harvested, its natural cream colour is bleached to a more desirable white, followed by toxic chemical dyes, containing plasticizers, to create the required fabric colour.

And it doesn’t stop there; most garments also contain what’s known as ‘finishing chemicals’. These include such toxins as PFCs, which are used to stain and waterproof clothing, formaldehyde and phthalates, which help make some textiles like so-called ‘vegan leather’ softer, to name just a few.

The use of these fabrics can lead to serious health consequences. Cases in point: recently, over 1000 staff at American and United airlines complained of illness after receiving new uniforms – it turned out that there was formaldehyde used to preserve the wool fabric that was actually making them sick. And Primark just recalled one of their flip flop lines because they contained a chemical that could be absorbed by the bottoms of your feet and lead to cancer. Are you really willing to put your baby at risk by dressing him or her in toxic clothing?

Here, I’ve found 15 of the best organic clothing brands for babies, to ensure your bundle of joy’s brand-new skin remains as healthy and comfortable as it was on the day she or he was born. Of course, you can rest assured that all of these brands use 100% organic materials (mainly cotton), and produce their clothing ethically.
