Why working out in Organic cotton is better for your health

The struggle is real: trying to relax while doing your yoga routine but feeling like your skin just can’t breathe. Your body is telling you something. Say goodbye to trapped sweat and skin that cannot breathe- It’s just not natural. For a good reason, The Good Tee has launched its first every movement yoga wear collection made with 93% FairTrade breathable organic cotton and 7% lycra to give the perfect stretch. 

Initially, people used to weave from natural fibers like cotton,  linen, wool, and silk. To meet the growing demand for fabric, people started to create synthetic products like nylon, polyester, and viscose in the factory. Each has its benefits and drawbacks. Although synthetic fabrics are cheaper, they are wont to biodegrade. Similar to plastic, they are made from polymers found in natural gas and the by-products of petroleum. Natural fibers are derived from plants and animals, while synthetic fibers are made from chemical compounds.

More about Organic Cotton:


  1. It is breathable: There is no question that natural fibers make you feel good. That is because, just like your skin, the fabric breathes. Just like your sheets and towels, it has a high absorption quality. In case of excess moisture, it will allow excellent ventilation to dry out the dampness. For that reason, you can wear organic cotton comfortably even if the weather is extremely hot and you feel sweaty. It will not cause rashes and itching on the skin. On the other hand, synthetic fibers like polyester and acrylic trap moisture as they are water-resistant in nature. This is why people feel uncomfortable, clammy, and sweaty in hot weather wearing synthetics.
  2. It Is hypoallergenic in nature: Organic Cotton is hypoallergenic in nature. Moreover, they have anti-bacterial properties that will protect the user from microbes attacks. Compared to man-made fabrics, the process involves extensive chemical treatment for which these products can cause rashes and skin irritation or even can start allergy. 

Guaranteed an experience of 100% comfort and stretch with every move and wear. Finally, feel at peace knowing that your clothes can breathe and are made sustainably and ethically.
