The Fabric

We buy our yarn from GOTS-certified organic cotton farms. This means that no pesticides or other harmful chemicals and toxins are entering the water supply in these areas.

Once the yarn is in our factory, we knit it and finish the fabric with water and heat (Hydrothermal process). This means that we are able to control the shrinkage of the products without compromising the stretch of the fabric. This is a process unique to our brand which eliminates the need to use any parabens or formaldehyde in the finishing process. This is not only beneficial to our end users but it also prevents contamination of the water supply. Once the fabric is finished, it is then brought to our own contained production facility where garments are cut and sewn and packed.

 

Natural Cotton

 

Cottonique only uses organic cotton sourced from pesticide-free farms. The cotton goes through a chemical-free fabric production process and then sewn into garments in our own contained manufacturing facility. This makes Cottonique truly organic in every sense.

 

Breathable

 

One of Cottonique’s unique features is its innovative chemical-free fabric treatment process that enhances air and moisture permeability of the cotton fabric. The absence of chemicals and resin coating keeps the fabric pores open, increases ventilation, and allows moisture to rapidly evaporate.

               

Absorbance

Cottonique’s chemical and resin-free fabric is clear of any surface coatings that can block the passage of air and moisture to and from the skin. This feature, combined with its rich hydrophilic texture, results in extreme fabric permeability and enhanced moisture wicking properties, keeping the skin cool and naturally dry. This prevents bacterial odor, infection, and skin disorders such as jock itch and skin rash.

Bleach-Free

Cottonique’s natural 100% cotton fabric is free of harmful textile bleach chemicals such as calcium hypochloride and sodium chlorite, which are linked to allergic contact dermatitis, eczema, and other skin irritations.

Notice the color difference.
All Cottonique products are available only in one color (natural). This is to preserve the purity of the fabric in its original form by avoiding the use of dyes and bleaches.

pH Balance

The skin maintains an average pH value of 5.5 – 6.5 to protect itself from infection, irritation, allergic reactions and dehydration. This pH level is achieved by the body's own acidic secretions, such as perspiration, sebum (fatty secretions) and various hormones. From daily washing, or from the introduction of foreign substances, the skins pH level gets thrown off to values between pH 9 – 11 and it takes approximately 2 hours to bring itself back to its normal pH level. For those that have sensitive skin, it could take as long as 36 hours. Fabric dyes and/or chemicals in underwear or clothing can hinder or further slow down the skins Ph balancing process.

Cottonique is pH balanced making it easier on the skin to achieve and maintain its normal pH level. No other underwear in the market offers this unique advantage, making Cottonique the ideal clothing brand for people with sensitive skin.
