Did you know that nearly 1 out of 3 children have some sort of skin ailment present as early as birth?
As a parent with a serious eczema, I was very conscious about making safe choices for my babies when it came to skin care. Parents with eczema are more likely to have children with eczema. However, the exact way it passes from parents to children is still not known. Most children who have eczema will show signs of the condition in the first year of life.
The most common skin ailments for babies include baby acne, milia, and eczema. If your baby suffers from any one of these common ailments like eczema, it is vital that you ensure you aren’t triggering flareups from rough materials on the baby’s skin.
In addition to finding safe baby cleaning products like shampoos, body washes, and lotions, I knew how important it is to seek safer baby washcloths. To be mindful of the fabrics and materials used to make your baby’s washcloths. As a parent I looked high and low and it was incredible to find organic options when it comes to washcloths.
As a business owner I knew I had to do something to help.

The majority of the available baby washcloths are made from materials like cotton, polyester, terry, and rayon. It’s also a common find for commercial baby washcloths to be made with mixed blends of these fabrics. That is why it was so important for me to create a washcloth line that is GOTS certified organic, and since bathing is such an enjoyable experience for your baby, we wanted to make sure that you will have a choice to opt for organic, super soft baby washcloths to ease babies fussiness by providing comfort to the babies skin during their bath time and reduce then stop eczema itching.
What is the best fabric for baby washcloths?
When looking for the best fabric for your baby you should look for organic and natural materials. BREAN selection of 100% organic cotton muslin ensures that your washcloth will only get softer after each use.
Organic and natural fabrics are less likely to have undergone a stringent bleaching process or be made with harsh fabric dyes. Consequently, these are also a safe option for babies with those specified ailments above.
In general, you should always search for 100% organic cotton fabrics, and if you can select GOTS certified cotton, to ensure they have not been treated with chemicals such as bleach or chlorine.
