When choosing to purchase certain products you may have come across the term "hypoallergenic". What does it mean when a product claims to be hypoallergenic? Generally, the accepted definition is that a product that claims to be hypoallergenic is claiming that it causes fewer allergic reactions than other products. This does not mean that it is allergy-proof. There aren’t any standards for manufacturers on the use of "hypoallergenic" to describe their products. They don’t have to test that specific product to prove it won’t cause a reaction. It's impossible to guarantee that a cosmetic or skin care product will never cause an allergic reaction.
Organic cotton is pesticide free, pigment free, bleach free, and hypoallergenic. Organic cotton does not use chemicals in the manufacturing process and is therefore less likely to cause a reaction in people with chemical sensitivities. Organic cotton contains no metals (which tend to cause allergic reactions) that are typically included in the dyes used to put color and patterns into organic bedding. As compared to conventional cotton, organic cotton has been shown to be beneficial for asthmatics.
