Your body is working hard for you while you sleep. It is a time when essential repairs take place and the mind and body can rejuvenate and recover from the day’s activities, especially in summers. The blood is processed and cleared of potentially harmful metabolic waste products, as well as essential proteins like hormones and antibodies.
Therefore, maintaining a sleeping environment that is as conducive to a restful and health-restoring night’s sleep as possible is even more crucial. The actual bed linen we use to cover ourselves each night is an important but frequently overlooked aspect of this. We are increasing the body’s toxic load by using “conventional,” or non-Organic, bedding, which eventually damages our health. In the modern world, many of us admit to feeling “half healthy” at best. The good news is that you can make a big step toward better health by switching to Organic bedding for a night of cool & comfortable summer sleep. This will improve immune and respiratory function, skin health, and overall well-being. Below, we discuss the reasons why.
Better skin with Organic Bedding Surprisingly, conventional textile manufacturing and processing uses a variety of toxic heavy metal ions, carcinogenic Azo dyes, formaldehyde, chlorine-based bleaches, and nanoparticles, among other things. Be wary of claims on bedding like “color-fast,” “stain-resistant,” and “wrinkle-free,” as these typically indicate the presence of additional formaldehyde.
Formaldehyde is a strong skin irritant in addition to serving as a cross-linking agent and assisting in the fixation of other harmful chemicals to textile fibers—a double whammy! Thankfully, certified Organic bedding from Organics & More cannot contain any of these harmful chemicals.
I want to make it clear that, unlike in food, the term “certified Organic” is not protected in the textile industry. Therefore, you should always check your bedding for the GOTS Organic certification label. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which covers Organic status in both the farming and manufacturing stages of textiles, is the global gold standard. You might be wondering if there are enough of these chemicals in the environment to cause any harm. Despite their relatively low levels, it should be remembered that we spend approximately eight hours a day in contact with our bedding, which is why these chemicals are present! A laboratory study conducted in 2018 revealed that skin-imitating membranes significantly adsorb textile contaminants (benzothiazole was tested).
Organics & More has received feedback from customers indicating that those with young children, adults with sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema immediately notice the significant difference in the toxin-free Organic cotton products (lack of) reaction.
Better Sleep comes from Natural Sleep.
We are all aware of the significance of getting a good night’s sleep to our overall health and sense of well-being. We don’t often think about how our bedding directly affects this. Bedding of high quality made of natural fibers like Organic cotton, especially in a percale weave, is very breathable. This makes it possible for us to get a good night’s sleep and keep our body temperature constant. Our customers consistently tell us that they immediately feel the difference between our Organic bedding, which contains no irritant chemicals or residues, and no alien synthetic fibers. Our body knows and seeks the natural way.
Organic Fabric is Breathable
Inhalation is an additional entry point for contaminants and derivatives of bedding, such as volatile Organic compounds (VOCs). In the case of non-Organic bedding, the proof is in the pudding or chemical soup.
Another problem could be allergies caused by things like dust mites. Natural fibers like Organic cotton, which are naturally hypoallergenic, are an excellent alternative to synthetic fibers (cue the chemicals), which are a great way to combat such issues. Organic cotton can be used to cover Organic sheets, pillows, and duvets for an extra-soft and luxurious feel.
Don’t overlook the third of your life spent in bed, even though healthy eating and exercise are essential to a healthy lifestyle. Utilizing Organic bedding from Organics & More that is free of toxins can significantly contribute to a life that is balanced and free of respiratory and dermal complications. The best part is that you can do it while you have cool & comfortable sleep!
