Detox clothing from GREY - wear skin caring algae instead of toxins

The textile industry has long been discredited: chemicals used in the manufacture of clothing are harmful to your skin and the environment. This affects not only clothing from low-cost producers, but also from expensive designer brands. Instead of chemicals, GREY detox clothing contains beneficial algae that nourish your skin while protecting the environment.

Chemistry in clothing despite high commitment and environmental awareness

Perhaps you are one of those women who are sporty and value their health? You are interested in the origin of your clothes and are an environmentally conscious consumer? Then it may have been bothering you for a long time that when it comes to clothing there are hardly any ways to protect the skin and the environment from the fatal effects of textile production. Maybe you've been looking for clothes that feel good on your skin for a long time and that don't just pretend to do something good, but actually do something good. This is because most textiles contain numerous chemicals that you have on your skin every day when wearing them. Common sense tells you that this cannot be healthy in the long run. Even if you rely on expensive brand-name clothing, there is no getting around chemicals in clothing, as the "Detox Campaign", a Greenpeace study from 2011, shows. This revealed that many fashion brands also use chemicals and dyes that are harmful to the skin. GREY products are completely free of harmful substances. Detox clothing also contains algae and minerals that nourish the skin and have a detoxifying effect on your skin. With GREY detox clothing you can practically day and night recover from the pollutants in clothing.

Why there is chemistry in our clothing

We humans wear clothes to protect us from cold, wet, wind and heat. In fact, the clothing that touches our skin and body day and night has a great influence on our health. On the one hand the cut of the clothes plays a role. If it is too tight, it can cause pressure on nerves, organs or blood vessels and even lead to organ failure, as once when the notorious corset was socially demanded for women. On the other hand, textiles can be a shelter for vermin, as was often the case in earlier days. It was not uncommon for clothes lice or fleas to live there, which were responsible for the transmission of threatening diseases such as plague or typhus fever. But it was not only because of the bloodsuckers, but also because of clothes moths, whose larvae feed on fabrics, that it became common practice to apply many chemicals to textiles during production. After all, chemicals can be used to kill off pests. What has been forgotten is that these chemicals not only have a benefit, but are also responsible for health problems - for example, because of the drinking water contaminated by the textile industry or the clothing we wear on our skin. It is actually surprising that there has not been any detox clothing available until now. The algae from GREY used for the production of the products not only act as a cure for the skin, but also do not harm nature. This proves that fashion manufacturers do not necessarily have to use toxic substances for clothing production.

What toxins you find in conventional clothing

The comprehensive Greenpeace study has shown that numerous garments from well-known brand manufacturers contain dangerous toxins that can trigger various diseases. This also applies to clothing made of natural fabrics and vegetable fibres. These toxins do not have to be declared by the manufacturer. There are certain limits within the EU. However, these do not apply to imported garments. Alkylphenols, for example, are among the toxins found in textiles. They are used in the dyeing and cleaning of fabrics and decompose in the water, causing many aquatic organisms such as the pollack and eventually us to be poisoned. Phthalates are plasticizers used in imitation leather and dyed textiles. They have a reproductive-damaging effect and can negatively affect the development of testicles. Dyes used in the textile industry can cause cancer and brominated flame retardants can damage the endocrine system. Organotin compounds in sportswear, such as tributyltin (TBT), are also pathogenic. In addition, hormone-impairing surfactants, carcinogenic aldehydes, triclosan which reduces women's fertility and harmful heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium and lead are often found in clothing. There are no harmful substances whatsoever in the algae detox clothing from GREY. Instead, GREY's Algae Detox clothing acts as a detoxifying treatment from all the harmful substances you have unintentionally exposed your skin to over the course of your life.

Instead of textiles full of toxins: Test algae detox clothing from GREY

The German company GREY, which has developed a fabric that is unique in the world, proves that it can be done differently. This substance, called Vitadylan, consists of algae from Iceland and medicinal zinc, which is why it releases minerals and vitamins to your skin. The algae substance from GREY is the first cosmetic substance ever produced. The fabric of Detox clothing is much softer than cotton. In addition, there are also in the case of underwear, as the fabric parts are welded by ultrasound. Both lead to an unprecedented skin feeling. So far, there is only a small selection in the assortment, which consists of T-shirts, longsleeves, undershirts, pantys and bustiers. On the other hand, the products are soothing and protect against the influences of conventional brand clothing worn over them. The advantages for detox clothing are obvious: every product made from this new type of fabric cares for your skin by releasing algae and zinc as well as antioxidants that protect your skin. This effect is scientifically proven and does not wash out even after washing a hundred times. Incidentally, the fabric, which is produced exclusively in Europe, requires 90 percent less CO2 and 97 percent less water to produce than standard cotton. It is great for use as underwear or nightwear and finally stops the effects of chemicals on your skin. In terms of price, the products in the premium segment for women range from 40 to 150 euros. Quality has its price. Your skin thanks you.
