Natural Dyes_noback.png

Natural dyes neither contain harmful chemicals nor carcinogenic components, common to artificial or synthetic dyes. This is because plants bypass the entire production process it takes to create synthetic dyes. This is yet another reason why natural dyes are infinitely better for the environment.

Natural dyes are dyes or colorants derived from plants, invertebrates, or minerals. The majority of natural dyes are vegetable dyes from plant sources—roots, berries, bark, leaves, and wood—and other biological sources such as fungi.

Natural dyes are biodegradable and disposing them don't cause pollution. Renewable – Natural dyes are obtained from renewable sources that can be harnessed without imposing harm to the environment.

Another interesting advantage of natural dyes is that they provide higher UV absorption in the fabrics they are used on. By wearing clothes dyed naturally, you are able to more fully protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays.

An infant's epidermis/skin is three to five times thinner than an adult's and is made up of smaller cells. This increases the absorption of water and other substances into the body by what they wear and are surrounded by.
