Organic Cotton Wool products from Simply Gentle are made with 100% organic cotton.
Cotton is the largest non-food crop, with over 19 million tons grown every year in over 70 countries. Although it is a natural fibre and has a good environmental image, the farming of cotton actually causes considerable ecological pollution. Artificial fertilisers, herbicides and insecticides are used on cotton crops in large quantities.
Today 25% of all chemical insecticides are used in the growth of conventional cotton. This results in devastating side effects on the environment, wildlife and ultimately in food chain contamination.
Simply Gentle Organic Cotton Wool is grown without artificial pesticides, working in harmony with the environment to support biodiversity using a natural pest management system.
From cotton seed to packaging, each Simply Gentle product is independently audited to ensure optimum quality, purity and softness.
Simply Gentle products are approved by the Soil Association, so you can rest assured that the ethical farming methods are continually improving to help provide a safer future for farmers and their communities.
