GO GREEN, STAY SAFE WITH CHIC ORGANIC CLOTHING!!!

Why is Organic clothing the fashion rage the world over?! India, as the original fashion capital of the world (remember, mere mortals from the world over braved the high seas to reach India for her silks and cottons!!!) – leads in contemporary Organic Fashion – Clothing & Accessories, for men & women!!!

What is Organic Clothing? 

Organic clothing is made of all-natural, non-synthetic materials and is a part of the organic agriculture movement. This emphasizes farming and processing that work with nature and help minimize air, soil and water pollution. Organic clothing materials come from plants that have not been radiated, genetically modified or treated with synthetic or chemical pesticides.  Organic fabrics like cotton, wool, silk, Bamboo and hemp meet regulations set by Organic Trade Associations. 

 What is SAFE about Organic Clothing?

To understand this, we need to understand the Dangers of Non-organic Clothing. These are often the source of contact dermatitis, an allergic reaction. The dyes, resins and formaldehyde used in processing fabrics could cause reactions. Synthetic fibers and wool can act as irritants.

The World Health Organization estimates that pesticides poison at least 3 million people every year . Over half of the pesticides used in cotton cultivation as likely to cause cancer in humans . Many pesticides have been shown to cause a range of other health concerns in humans, like:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Neurological Disorders
  • and Birth Defects.

Children exposed to methyl parathion, an insecticide, are observed to suffer memory loss and emotional swings.

 What is GREEN about Organic Clothing?

It is Fashion with Responsibility! Clothing and fabrics made using entirely non-chemical means of production – including chemical fertilizers and pesticides is a sustainable means of living in co-existence with Nature. Organic agricultural methods are totally sustainable, helping reduce the Carbon Footprint. Plus, Organic farming also uses 50 percent less energy than conventional farming .

Benefits of Organic Clothing

  • The environmental benefits of organic clothing stem from the fact that growers produce cotton without synthetic fertilizers or toxic herbicides and pesticides, from non-genetically engineered seed.
  • Authentic organic fabrics and clothing can help the environment in a number of ways:
  • No chemical pesticides are used
  • Organic cotton farming produces far less CO2 emissions – Organic farming takes 1.5 tonnes of CO2 per acre per year, taken out of the atmosphere
  • Organic cotton farming uses up to 60% less water than conventional farming methods
  • Pesticide or herbicide residues are not released accidentally into the environment
  • Humans and animals are not exposed to chemical pesticides or herbicides
  • When the fabric is discarded, pesticides and herbicides are not returned to the earth in landfill, or enter into the recycling process.

GIVE YOUR HAIR A SHADE OF HAPPINESS!

Image

 

New years, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and break-ups are the times when women go for a drastic look change. More often than not, they choose to give themselves this change with a new hair-do or hair color. http://bit.ly/18L8CNl

Now there is no denying that we’ve all had home hair dyeing horror stories that are so bad that a shaved head seems like the only solution. So before you take this colorful leap, think!

Here are a few things that you would like to consider before going through that make-over:

Start with a semi-permanent dye. They are like summer romance and will wear away after about 10 washes. If you are happy with the shade you get, go ahead and make a long-term commitment!

Once you have established your favorite shade, you can go for a permanent color that you would want a happily ever after with.

For the most natural effect of your hair color, stay within three shades of your natural color. 

Deep-condition your hair regularly for a week before using a hair color. If your hair is damaged, the pigment won’t adhere well to your strands and it will end up looking streaky. http://bit.ly/ 15OmAC9

Don’t shampoo for a day or two before you color. Your hair’s natural oils will protect your scalp and prevent irritation.

Dab the roots of your hair with water before applying color. Since the tips of your hair tend to be dry and damaged, they can soak up too much color

After dying, hold off on shampooing for three days. This will give the cuticles–which open during the coloring process–time to close and seal in the color molecules.

Always wash off the color with cold water as hot water can cause cuticles to expand and open, allowing some of the color to escape. Use a color-protect shampoo for your hair color to stay longer. http://bit.ly/1dY3jQP

And while you are on a change in hair color quest, choosing the right type of hair color is even more important than choosing the shade http://bit.ly/18L8CNl Commercial hair colors and dyes contain harmful chemicals that only deteriorate your hair quality. As per a study by Manipal University, India, about 5% of the total hair dye users suffer from allergies due to harmful chemicals in hair dyeing products. One of the primary allergens used in these dyes is para-Phenylene di amine (pPD).

So what is the alternative, you ask. We are glad to answer that. There are two alternatives to these chemical based hair dyes: Henna and Hair-dyes made from natural extracts of plants. http://bit.ly/18L8CNl

Natural Mantra has a whole range of hair color products, including henna and natural hair-dyes. Our natural hair dyes are 100% ayurvedic preparations, therefore they don’t give you an immediate effect like chemical based hair dyes do. That said, they have a whole range of other benefits that more than make up for the slight delay.

It helps controls dandruff and increases hair growth. 

The proteins in it provide nourishment to your hair and scalp.

It gives UV Protection and helps maintain luster of the hair shafts.

It does not increase white hair.

It conditions and protects your hair.

The hair that gets damaged by chemical hair color can regain their shine and softness by regular use of our natural hair color! http://bit.ly/18L8CNl

So what sits on your crown, a head full of beautiful and lustrous hair or an itchy scalp – the choice is yours. In your pursuit to be different, don’t head on for a disaster! Give your hair a shade of joy with natural colors!

Nature has designs on you. Will you wear them?

There is a crying need today to choose alternative natural fabric that is made from easily available materials or waste materials so as to reduce the pressure on natural resources. Opt for natural fabrics over harmful synthetics, for the sake of the environment as well as for your comfort.

The plethora of man-made fabrics such as polyester and nylon are extremely harmful to the environment. Their production process uses harmful chemicals and they are not bio-degradable. Plus their formaldehyde finishes and chemical dyes are harmful to the skin.

Fortunately there are options available that are healthy – both to us and to our environment! Choose alternative natural fabric that is made from easily available materials or waste materials. Organic clothing, from all-natural, non-synthetic materials, is a part of the organic agriculture movement which emphasizes farming and processing that work with nature to help minimize air, soil and water pollution. Organic clothing materials come from plants that have not been radiated genetically modified or treated with synthetic or chemical pesticides.

Regular cotton is a widely used fabric, but its production causes immense damage to the environment. It is estimated that 25% of global pesticide is used in traditional cotton farming. On the other hand. cotton grown without insecticides /pesticides not only means chemical free fabric but also means that we have avoided the chemical run-off that saturates the ground and ends up in our food, drinking water and the air we breathe. Organic materials are grown toxin-free, reducing the amount of toxic chemicals we ingest and release into the earth. Organic fibers are hypo-allergenic and free of chemicals or pollutants. Clothes from natural material also ensure that less pollution when dumped, they degenerate faster and produce less pollution on the way to degeneration process.

What are these naturally produced fashion materials? Soya fabric made from waste soya hull, banana fabric from banana leaf, organic wool, fabrics made from silk and hemp as well as renewable materials like bamboo, soy and Tencel, a wood pulp product. Sustainable clothing materials can also be produced from new synthetic options like “POP,” fabric made from recycled plastic soda bottles.

Organically grown cotton has great strength and durability and is good for people with allergies and chemical sensitivity. Its soft texture and breathable structure makes it an eternal fashion favorite too!

Bamboo, with its natural antibacterial and moisture-wicking properties, makes for excellent sportswear too. It is the softest, smoothest fabric to wear next to your skin and is most comfortable.

You too can contribute towards nature by making an eco-conscious choice when you shop the next time. Helping you make this right choice is Natural Mantra from where you can buy organic and natural fabric-made clothes! Do check out the website to make your eco-friendly fashion statement!

Work with Nature. Wear Natural.

Why are Natural Fabrics special for you?

The inherent characteristic of natural fabrics that we have used, such as Organic cotton, Silk, Bamboo, Soya & Modal – offer advantages in terms of better breath-ability, temperature regulation, durability, water absorption, antimicrobial properties, and more!  versus synthetic fabrics that pose a health risk by :
Stopping the normal function of your body due to their low breath-ability, low water absorption, and thermal regulation. This in turn can lead to either overheating (even heat stroke in a high-temperature climate), or getting too cold.
Stops the normal reaction of your skin to create a barrier and encourages a favorable condition for bacteria growth, thereby causing or worsening skin disorders and the course of allergic reactions.
