Organic Cotton on the Skin

Written by Abby Wilson

Organic is more than a buzzword. It’s more than a movement. It’s more than a way of life or an intricate growing process. It’s a feeling. It’s tactile. It’s a sensation that only organic cotton can provide.

If you already own organic cotton clothing, you know what I’m talking about. Even when brand new, a garment made with organic cotton feels like an old favorite. Like that decades-old tee that you just can’t quit. Or that much-loved sweatshirt that’s been washed so many times that the lettering is starting to crack and the cuffs are beginning to fray.

All Pact products are made with organic cotton—many of which are crafted with 100 percent organic, non-GMO cotton. As Pact Founder and CEO Brendan Synnott says: “We believe the best ingredients make the best clothes.” Pact makes the cozy clothes you reach for when you want to curl up on a rainy day with a good book. They’re what you want to throw on at the end of a long workday, and they’re your go-to for durable, comfy kids’ clothes.

As Pact founder Brendan Synnott said: “I started Pact with a lofty goal: to create the comfiest clothes in the world without destroying the earth, or harming people. I believe that what we wear, matters. So, I set out to do things better.”

But what gives organic cotton that lived-in appeal, that super-soft touch right out of the box? It’s all in the staples, or cotton fibers—the fine strands that compose a raw cotton boll. It’s a fact that not all cotton is created equal, and Pact sources only the finest long-staple organic cotton that is combed for extra softness. The longer the cotton fiber, or staple, the less imperfections, which results in a softer, more luxurious feel.

Softness aside, organic cotton is inherently better for your skin (aka your bodies’ biggest organ) than conventional cotton (aka the world’s dirtiest crop). Per Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS), organic cotton is never exposed to the toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde, chlorine bleach, and carcinogenic compounds that conventional cotton is treated with.

It makes sense, then, that organic cotton is worlds better for those who have sensitive skin, eczema, and other skin issues. Not to mention my precious little babies and their impossibly soft, perfect skin.

I love that Pact’s organic cotton is great for your skin and for the farmers growing it. It’s what they call conscious comfort. It’s what I call “look good, feel good”—especially when you can feel good about your Pact purchase.
