“Clothing your little ones in cotton may seem like the natural choice but are you surprised to hear that it isn’t necessarily the safest one?”

Certified organic cotton is very much a different story. It’s by far the safest option, second only to donning a birthday suit! There are so many benefits to clothing our children in organic cotton and some are more widely known than others, so let’s take a peek at them.

WHY CERTIFIED?

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the name of the governing body that oversees the certification criteria of organic cotton right around the world. Certification is critical in ensuring companies comply with the criteria necessary to have their products classified as truly organic. When purchasing organic, it’s important that you ensure products are GOTS certified because unfortunately any company can lay false and misleading claims to an organic product otherwise.

Certified farmers understand that healthy cotton promotes healthy living. They start with a clean slate, ridding their farms of all harmful substances before they start growing organic crops. Farms must be free from pesticides for three years before farming of organic cotton can commence. From the moment the seeds are sewn into the soil, right through to the finished product on the shop floor (or internet website in our case!) every process is a natural one. Organic cotton is the natural choice, when only the best will do.

WHY ORGANIC?

Certified Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilisers whereas conventional cotton-growing techniques rely heavily on these nasties to control the quality of the soil. Ordinarily cotton is processed using dyes, bleach and a host of other unhealthy chemicals that have been attributed to allergies, eczema and even cancer. Organic cotton, on the other hand, is free from all artificial additives as well as free from formaldehyde which has been classified as a cancer-causing agent by the International Institute for Research on Cancer.

Did you know that globally cotton covers 2.5% of the world’s cultivated land, yet it uses 16%-25% of the world’s insecticides, more than any other single major crop? And five of the top nine pesticides used on conventional cotton in the US alone, are known to be cancer causing chemicals? These are just a couple of the many statistics that are now widely available to demonstrate the harmful effects of conventional cotton.

SAFE AND GENTLE

Babies have incredibly sensitive skin that is more porous and absorbent than adult skin. Similarly to the way parents carefully consider the type of shampoo or body wash to use on their baby, the textiles in clothing should also be considered because it comes into such close contact with a baby’s skin. When wearing conventional cotton, your baby spends 24 hours a day in clothing laced with chemicals. These chemicals are designed to remain in the textiles for life and even after washing it’s been scientifically proven they retain these chemicals for the entire lifespan of the garment.

Because organic cotton is pure and isn’t treated with anti-static, anti-wrinkle pesticides and all the other toxic chemicals that ordinarily goes into making cotton, it’s highly absorbent and breathes beautifully. People with allergies and sensitivity to chemicals especially benefit and we can certainly also celebrate the fact that certified organic cotton doesn’t leave any harmful side effects on the environment.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS…

Organic cotton is highly durable which means garments represent real value. Not only will they last longer and can be passed on to other children, but you’ll also save money as well as the environment in the long run. Because the fibers haven’t been deconstructed as chemicals are added, organic cotton doesn’t pill easily or trap odors as much as conventional cotton. It’s environmentally safe and by selecting organic cotton you’re making a socially responsible decision to care for our environment, which after-all, is for the benefit of the future of our little ones.

PURE LUXURY!

Certified organic cotton feels simply luxurious! It’s dramatically softer than conventional cotton because it hasn’t been assaulted with chemicals and pesticides and is grown and manufactured in as natural state as possible.

You must try it for yourself. Once you go organic, you’ll never go back!

Aster & Oak is an Australian children’s clothing label that offers a truly unique range of certified organic clothing for all the precious little people in our lives.

It was our personal experience with our own children’s skin allergies that led us to research and craft a range of Eco-friendly, certified organic baby clothing which is safe, non-toxic, low-allergenic and free from any hidden nasties.

Our vision was to create a range of clothing which was beautifully soft and as natural as possible whilst still maintaining a stylish and practical edge. After countless hours of research and road testing, a love for all things organic and a background in design, Aster & Oak was born!

All our clothing is made using the purest 100% GOTS certified organic cotton making them gentle on your baby’s skin and even gentler on our environment. Brimming with character, each piece is adorned in the most delightfully playful and whimsical design, all individually illustrated by hand and coloured using natural based dyes.

Our entire collection is personally designed and manufactured and therefore we maintain full control over the entire process every single step of the way. We’re strictly organic from the soil our cotton is grown in, right through to the final production.

--------------------------------------------------

RETURN POLICY

At Naked Baby Eco Boutique, we don’t actually have a return policy for purchases made at our boutique. We handle returns on a case-by-case basis with the ultimate objective of satisfying the customer. We stand behind our goods and services and want our customers to be satisfied with them. It is our goal to do our best to take care of customers; to deal with them fairly and reasonably. In return, we hope that our customers are fair and reasonable with us, too.

In doing this, we hope to build trust with our customers and create a long-term relationship of mutual respect. Standing behind what we sell is a big part of that. We like to think that many customers choose to shop with us because they know that if their purchase isn’t right, we will work to fix it for them.

Should you wish to initiate a return, please contact: info@nakedbaby.co.nz.

PLEASE NOTE: we do not offer refunds on orders for which you have missed reading in the Product Description that your item(s) are a pre-order.  This information is clearly written, in bold, red lettering, and we expect our customers to read all of the details prior to placing an order.  We will consider an exchange or store credit, but no cash (or card) refunds will be offered.

Should a return be deemed the best remedy, if you paid by credit card, we will credit your account within 14 days. If you paid by direct banking, we will get in touch for your banking details and credit your account. If you paid by Gift Voucher, a replacement voucher will be issued to you.

For transactions processed via Curate, Laybuy, Afterpay, and Genoapay you will be refunded via the original method of payment, minus the service fee amount (should the return be for change-of-mind).  Alternately, you may elect to receive a store credit for the full value.  Should a refund need to be issued due to an error on our part, an inventory shortage, or other similar issue, you will be refunded in full via the original payment method (including the service charge).  Should you be seeking a refund for a damaged item, and we have offered to provide a new identical item in its place, and you have elected not to take that, your refund will be exclusive of the service fee.

Unfortunately, shipping charges cannot be refunded to you (and return shipping charges are your responsibility). Additionally, in general, our shipping fees cost more than what we charge our customers. Should this be the case on a return, the difference between the cost of the shipping and what the customer paid for shipping will be deducted from the total return amount. If you used a Free Shipping code, the cost of the shipping (to the greater value of what the actual cost to ship the package was or the standard NZ shipping fee) will be deducted from the refund amount.
