COLOUR GROWN ORGANIC COTTON

 

We have had a worldwide search for the very best fabric to use for our eczema nightwear, fabrics containing seaweed, shellfish shells, aloe and even mint have all been rejected.

Basic Principles

 

Cotton Comfort back to basic principles for eczema clothing

 

  • 100% Pure Organic Cotton, as soft as possible therefore no pesticide residue, chemical finishes or bleached white fabric

  • Hot machine wash at 60c or above – this is essential to eliminate dust mite allergen and to remove residues of oil/cream and dead skin from clothing

  • Flat seams, inside and out for extra comfort (so they cannot be used to scratch against)

NEWS AND STOCK UPDATE

 

Our regular customers will have noticed that we have now discontinued our ‘Natural silver soothe’ range of eczema nightwear although we still have some stock left at Sale prices. This range has been immensely popular and effective at beating the overnight itches.

 

A decade ago when we introduced the ‘Natural silver soothe’ fabric into our range, Cotton Comfort Ltd was at the forefront of the new technology that enabled this completely innovative product to be launched.

We did our homework and obtained test certificates to show that the silver did not cross the skin barrier into the bloodstream, also ensuring that the silver content did not wash out into our fragile water system, and of course all our products can be hot washed at 60c (the temperature essential to destroy house dust mite allergen).
