Textile dyeing industry is one of the most chemically intensive industries on earth and the most polluter of clean water after agriculture. The synthetic used additives in the dyeing and finishing process are dangerous to human health, marine life, and the environment. Contact with dyed synthetics clothes cause allergic reactions, skin irritation, and rashes. To preserve our ecosystems and our water resources and to protect our health we need to produce ethical and non-toxic fabrics and raise people’s consciousness also about textile dyeing processes for a 100% sustainable fashion.
Natural dyes are vastly more beneficial for the environment when compared to chemical dyes and they can reduce the impact of the textile industries.
They derived from organic materials and are produced by natural process, which means that they don’t produce toxic waste, they create less waste water during the dyeing and rinsing process and they are safe for skin, some of them have anti-microbial activity. Skin is the human body’s largest organ, because it protects all the body, so we need to take care of it. To preserve its health Φhillacolor products are consciously manufactured with pH similar to the skin pH, which is fairly acidic, in average from 4.2 e 5.6.
