The clothes you wear may be slowly poisoning you. Your skin is the body’s largest organ and is a vital protective barrier against the environment while also cleansing your body of certain wastes but it needs protection.
Petro-chemical based clothing (synthetics) are manufactured using thousands of synthetic chemicals and with specialist finishes for flame resistance, insect repellency, shrink resistance, easy iron and water repellency. It has been proven that the chemicals associated with synthetic clothing are readily absorbed through the skin, avoiding the liver before entering the bloodstream. When you are hot and sweating your pores open up making the skin even more receptive to chemical absorption. The build up of chemicals in the body especially the combination with other toxic chemicals can lead to minor and major health ailments.
