Kids have sensitive skin! Their skin is thinner than adult skin. Their skin is new to the world – and can react to things unpredictably. And finding skin-friendly clothing can be difficult. You need to look for right fabric, waistband is of good quality, prints are long lasting & no chemicals are used: all these attributes cannot be ignored and they are actually aligned to kids’ skin for sure. As the mom of a girl with sensitive skin, I know first-hand how challenging this can be. Lots of kids clothing is uncomfortable. Sometimes the fabrics, trims, or even the fit can cause irritation and a rash. When we’re done with potty training, it can be hard to find the best toddler underwear for sensitive skin.
Tactile Sensitivity and Sensitive Skin
And then there are some kids who are extremely sensitive to clothes for what seems like no apparent reason. Tactile Sensitivity refers to the condition of being hypersensitive to tactile sensation. For some children, a woven fabric that is soft and comfortable to us feels stiff and uncomfortable. Other kids can find some types of fabric intolerably itchy. Some children have garment-type preferences. They might refuse to wear long sleeves. Or insist on skirts instead of shorts. These habits are familiar to the parents of a child with sensitive skin. Tactile Sensitivity is one aspect of skin Processing Disorder and is often seen in children with autism spectrum disorder(ASD), Asperger’s Syndrome, and also Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).
Many kids have strong opinions about what they wear. Even kids who aren’t especially skin sensitive can have clear preferences. And let’s face it, most of us prefer our undergarments to be comfortable when we first put them on-and throughout the day. That’s why Bodycare for Kids works very hard to develop Skin friendly clothing with the softest fabrics and trims, smoothest seams, and no itchy labels.
Soft, Toxin-free Fabrics
New product development at Bodycare Kids starts with the softest fabrics. And all our fabrics and dyes are tested and certified so they are free from harmful dyes, and chemicals.
We have several underwear styles for girls and boys that are made with certified organic cotton for those children who prefer the soft, comfy feel of premium cotton fabric. And parents can feel good about buying sustainable and ethically made products.
Skin Friendly Elastics and Laces
Bodycare Kids uses the softest elastics and laces available to ensure all-day comfort. And the elastic is designed to prevent uncomfortable compression. No child wants to feel like their waistband or leg elastic is too tight. And scratchy lace on an undergarment is just the worst! Another advantage of our elastics? Underwear that doesn’t ride up! When the leg elastic has just the right tension, the underpants stay in place. No more wedges!
Sensory Comfort Seams
Seams are sewn with the fluffiest threads to ensure they are smooth and never scratchy. And they are sewn for maximum comfort. Bodycare Kids gussets are all constructed to be smooth and comfy. Some are flat seams with the gusset fabric sewn down onto the panty fabric; this makes the seam smooth and flat. Some of our undies have completely hidden seams, so all the edges are concealed. And all exposed thread is soft and fluffy for maximum comfort against sensitive skin. And we know it can be challenging to find the right Skin friendly garments for kids with sensitive skin. That’s why all of the clothing from Bodycare International Ltd is designed with care. We are sure you can find a fabric and style that your little one will want to wear every day!
