Our skin is our largest organ. When we sweat, we not only excrete toxins through our skin, it can also absorb substances. Therefore, we should calmly think about which textiles we let on our skin.
Chemicals per se are not the problem. They are everywhere. However hazardous, unnecessary substances and their often irresponsible use are a problem. Did you know that the production of conventional jeans still uses various harmful chemicals? Some chemicals like certain heavy metals ensure, for example, that cheap colors remain color-fast.
Actually our skin barrier protects us. But as a pyjama test has shown, when we sweat, chemical substances can migrate through the connective tissue into the bloodstream and further into the cells of the organs. → We only use toxicologically tested GOTS chemicals in the production of our denims. For you this means: One worry less.
Renouncement of chlorine: Have you ever had a pair of jeans in your hand that smelled acrid? In this case you can rely on your nose. Because this smell is often caused by chlorine residues in the fibers. These can remain if jeans are not rinsed sufficiently after bleaching.
If you start to sweat in such jeans, these chlorine residues can lead to skin irritations and even allergies. → We bleach our denims completely chlorine-free. Believe us: Your skin will thank you for it.
