What are child-friendly materials? ~For children to live comfortably~

Posted by PETITMIG on

In recent summer, the heat has become really severe.

I'm Maruko Sakura, a writer for children's clothing brand PETITMIG.

When the summer vacation starts, the children are sure to be having a great time running around in spite of the heat.

Children's skin is very delicate.

We want you to feel comfortable even in the hot summer.

So, this time, we will introduce what kind of material is 100% cotton, which is said to be gentle on children's skin, and how to choose materials for children's clothing to keep them comfortable.

Is 100% cotton gentle on the skin?

It has long been said that cotton is gentle on the skin.

Therefore, cotton material is often used for baby underwear and clothing.

So, I would like to introduce again what kind of material "cotton" is.

What is cotton?

Cotton is a material that is also called " cotton ".

The history of cotton is very old, and it seems that it has existed for more than 8000 years.

Cotton is originally woven into fabric using the fluffy white part around the seeds of the cotton tree as thread.

By the way, organic cotton is also cotton, but it refers to cotton made without using chemical fertilizers or chemicals .

What are the characteristics of 100% cotton?

100% cotton is a familiar fabric.

Most baby underwear is made of cotton fabric.

This is because it is gentle on baby skin.

Organic cotton is especially recommended for children with allergies or sensitive skin .

Babies' skin is very delicate as shown below, so it has always been necessary to use materials that are gentle on the skin.

[ Features of baby skin ]

  • Sensitive to touch (easily itchy)
  • Sweat glands (sweat holes) are the same as adults, so they sweat easily

If you look at baby's underwear, you'll notice that the tags and seams are made so that they don't touch the skin.

This is because baby skin is very sensitive.

And since babies have the same number of sweat glands as adults, even though their bodies are very small, we can assume that they sweat just as much as adults.

However, unlike an adult's skin, a baby's skin is still in a state of development.

For that reason, "cotton" has long been used as a non -irritating material that absorbs sweat easily and does not get stuffy .

Tips for choosing materials for children's clothing

If possible, I want my children to wear cute and fashionable clothes.

So, even in the heat of summer, we will introduce you to the points of choosing materials that will keep your children comfortable.

Is cotton the main material for children's clothing?

Various materials are used in children's clothing.

In addition to cotton materials, chemical fibers such as polyester and acrylic are also used.

Soft, breathable and absorbent cotton is recommended for children's clothing, but not all children's clothing should be made of cotton. That's not what I mean.

However, it is recommended to use cotton material for undergarments that come in direct contact with the skin .

Especially in the summer, when it is very easy to sweat.

Cotton underwear absorbs sweat and wicks away moisture, so you can stay cooler than underwear made of synthetic fibers.

And there are cases where the child grows up and wears a T-shirt without wearing underwear.

In such a case, it is recommended to use cotton T-shirts as much as possible.

I think that there are "wear and don't wear" underwear depending on the family and children.

You don't necessarily have to wear underwear, but some people think it's better to wear it to keep your skin clean.

However, it is certain that you will feel very hot by wearing two layers of clothing, "underwear + outerwear (T-shirt)".

If you're sweating and can change quickly, I think it's a good idea to stay cool with just a T-shirt.

Depending on the situation at that time, please choose whether to wear underwear or not.

Ease of care

The cotton material has good breathability, so it dries easily even after washing, and has the advantages of being strong (hard to tear) and heat resistant .

However, on the other hand, there is also a disadvantage that it is difficult to remove dirt .

For this reason, yellowing may remain even after washing a white cotton T-shirt.

You may be wondering, what about children's clothes made of chemical fibers in the summer season?

Clothes that use chemical fibers have a warm image, so you may have an image of avoiding them in the summer.

However, clothes made with chemical fibers have the advantage of being easy to get dirty .

It is true that children's clothes made of chemical fibers have the image of "warming and moisturizing", but depending on the function, there are clothes that are excellent in "quick drying and water absorption".

Therefore, not only children's clothes made of cotton material, but also children's clothes that use chemical fibers should be well combined and worn.

For example , you can use cotton material for underwear that is invisible to others, and children's clothing that uses chemical fibers for outerwear that is worn over the underwear .
