More than 8,000 chemicals are used in conventional cotton processing, compared to less than 200 in organic cotton processing. All these chemicals also endanger the health of farmers and their families. In Maathai Organic we take care of your health, as the underwear and your skin require special care, as an increase in pH can lead to a reduction of native flora and can gradually increase the risk of infections. The use of organic underwear helps your skin because its natural fibers contain fewer chemicals that are responsible for allergies and irritations. More health for you and our planet!
