Why Do Over 50,000+ Customers Love Bhumi Organic Cotton Basics?
Going back to the basics strengthens one's foundations. Our foundations at Bhumi are built on the basic principles of love and respect for the Earth and Her People.
Our Organic Cotton Basics Range seeks to nourish you, whatever your lifestyle may involve - because what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put into your body. What we wear close to our skin has a tremendous impact on our health, and many implications along the Seed to Shelf journey. By choosing organic cotton, we opt for sustainable luxury that is non-toxic and ethically made.
Our Organic Cotton Basics Range breathes, keeps things cool and allows air flow in regions where moisture and heat are known recipes for bacteria growth. Our organic cotton basics are ever so soft and grown just like mother nature intended with no chemicals, synthetic fertilisers and toxic dyes.
Here Are Our Top 7 Reasons For Choosing Organic Cotton Basics
1. Organic Cotton Breathes With Your Skin
Have you ever had itchy dry nether regions? Synthetic toxic undies are causing more harm than you realise even ones that are cotton or natural cotton. Organic cotton breathes, keeps things cool and allows air flow in the nether regions where moisture and heat are known recipes for bacteria growth.
2. Bamboo Is Chemical Intensive Over Organic Cotton
Do you know how much toxic chemical processing it takes to create bamboo underwear? Our friends at Good On You explain how highly intensive the chemical processing is for the manufacturing of bamboo and GOTS the gold standard for organic certification does not endorse Bamboo for this reason.
3. Organic Cotton Is Not Itchy
Do you have scratchy undergarments? Organic cotton is ever so soft and grown just like mother nature intended with no chemicals, synthetic fertilisers and toxic dyes.
4. We Provide Transparency From Seed To Shelf
Why is Bhumi organic cotton basics affordable? Our organic cotton is grown in areas where it is optimal to grow using nature without the use of excess water irrigation or toxic fertilisers so we don't need to mark the process up nor do we need a middleman - we go straight to you!
5. Organic Cotton Uses Less Water
Did you know that just by changing your underwear or a camisole to organic cotton, you save 45 litres of water? Cotton is a thirsty crop and when non-organic fertilisers are added it has to be heavily diluted with more water; so choose organic cotton not just cotton!
6. Small Organic Choices Can Have A Large Impact
What's the best way to start your organic journey with little changes to your lifestyle? The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step - a small shift in the Basics that you wear is better for your health, the planet and her people. Our choices bring change; change for the better. And collectively if we all did just this, the impact would be monumental.
7. All Bhumi Products are Ethically Made
