We don't use chemical dyes
To guarantee quality and respect the environment, we don't use chemical colorants: they have a high aquatic toxicity and are not biodegradable.
Impact on health
Not everyone knows this, but many industrially used dyes are toxic to our bodies. In addition to having a strong environmental impact during production, many colorants leave hazardous residues in fabrics, which are then absorbed by our bodies.
Colorants such as aniline, tar, petroleum derivatives and some aromatic amines (such as benzidine and betanaphthylamine) are even carcinogenic.
In many industrialized countries - particularly in Italy and Portugal - epidemiological investigations confirm an increase in atopic contact dermatitis (ACD) caused by clothing treated with conventional dyeing processes. It is enough to think that in Italy dermatitis provoked by clothing represents about 10% of non-professional ACD and shows a worrying increasing trend.
As we have said, synthetic and chemical colorants have a strong environmental impact: being derivatives of petroleum and heavy metals they have a high aquatic toxicity and are not biodegradable. That is the reason why we at Nagua don't use chemical colorants.
