I've always used plain cotton towels and I didn't pay much attention to the material when shopping. As long as they were soft and large I was satisfied. Well, all this changed when my friend told me that cotton is one of the dirtiest crops and is treated with lots of pesticides, thus cotton towels aren't the ideal choice for sensitive skin like mine and are probably the culprits that are causing my cheek rash. My friend suggested I get organic bath towels and get rid of all my old ones. When I did a bit of research on my own I found out that standard bath towels are often poorly made with low quality materials and then processed with harsh chemicals that can be particularly harmful not just to sensitive skin, but to all skin types as well.
Being naturally anti-bacterial, bamboo prevents bacteria from growing in the bath towels. Furthermore, it's one of the most sustainable crops making it an eco-friendly solution for all kinds of textile products not just bath towels. With my soft organic towels I no longer have to worry about some rash appearing on my face out of nowhere and I can honestly say they're the best friend of my gentle skin.
