Top 20 Weird Allergies 14

Here is another reason why you must choose Cottonique.

In a research made by skin allergy experts, doctors named Top 20 Weird Allergies. And yes, underwear made it to 9th place.  Check out who leads the fight against skin diseases and latex allergies! Thank you HEART HEALTH for featuring Cottonique to your blog.

“9. Underwear

As with the shoe allergy, men and women who find themselves grappling against rashes and lesions because of their underwear point fingers towards the fabric used in assembling the garment. Latex and rubber in the waistbands, chemicals used in creating synthetic fabrics such as nylon and lycra, and resins for treating can all cause skin irritations in affected individuals. The easiest solution fortunately exists as the best. After confirming an allergy with a professional skin test, simply seek out undergarments made of materials without the offending constructs. Should a search at local stores ultimately prove fruitless, online retailers such as Cottonique specialize in hypoallergenic clothing.”

Cotton versus synthetic 1

There are numerous benefits of using cotton over synthetic material when it comes to clothing, however, probably the most beneficial of reasons is that Cotton is not a reactive material. Cotton is a material that protects the skin from chemicals, harmfull materials, sweat, and climate conditions.

Cotton is also considered the best choice for people suffering from asthma because it naturally helps remove and absorb body moisture, improving air circulation in the skin and keeping the body at it’s normal temperature.

Environmentally, cotton is nature friendly. When developed without the use of chemicals and pesticides Cottonique harvesting is practically harmless to the enviroment.

These are just some of the reasons Cottonique prides itself in developing 100% organic cotton chemical free clothing.

Latex Allergy 2

Latex can be found anywhere at home, hospitals, schools, and in the office. Toys, sanitary gloves, clothes, they all have latex and too much exposure to latex can lead to the development of an allergic reaction. Many people in the world are suffering from latex allergy, but, they are now aware of it. This skin illness can be serious if not treated right. Here are some tips to prevent latex allergy reactions:

1. Know which items are made from latex, and replace them with non-latex items.

2. Even breathing in the particles of powdered latex gloves can be harmful.

3. In the hospitals, ask if they have non-latex gloves, because most doctors and nurses use latex-based gloves.

4. Always carry a medical alert bracelet, necklace, or key chain that notes your allergy.

5. Epinephrine injection with you will be good, but ask your physician first.

Why is Cottonique best for sensitivities? 2

“Dear Cottonique,

I simple wrote to express my appreciation. I used to hesitate using your products because it is not the usual brand of apparel I used to buy in for my family. My husband was itching, as has been his problem through the last few months. We consulted a dermatologist here in Sacramento and she said it was due to latex allergies.

A friend told me about your company and I decided to let him try it.  I was surprised with the result! My husband is no longer experiencing redness or iching. Obviously, it was his undergarments that were causing him the irritation and once we switched to Cottonique, his problem was solved.

For that, I would like to thank you for providing this healthy option. Keep it up!

- Sally”

Say goodbye to diaper rash 2

The number one priority for every mother is making sure their baby is kept safe. Diaper rash is one of the leading issues most mothers are faced with and left question why this occurs. Diaper rash commonly occurs when sweat builds up due to lack of absorption within the diaper. Other common causes are the chemicals and synthetic materials used in most common diaper brands on the market.

Disposable diapers are very expensive compare to cloth diapers. What’s really bad is disposable diapers are filling up our landfills. Cloth diapers can be washed and later used for several more children or as rags for household needs. With disposable diapers Consumers Reports state that disposable diapers for one child will cost anywhere from $1500 to $2000 by the time one child leaves diapers behind. Cloth diapers are definitely better for the environment and makes better sense financially.

Some say that cloth diapering is making a comeback. The wash, dry and wear is coming back as a means of getting rid of many chemical and fragrances in some disposable diapers. What’s great about cotton cloth diapers is that they are soft against your baby’s skin, they pull the moisture away from the baby’s skin, and they let your baby’s bottom breathe more. Financially you are better off with cloth diapers and would be doing the environment a great justice.
