Topponcino 101: Why Is 100% Cotton so Important?

Have you noticed that polyester is in everything these days? Even baby products! Such a bummer.


Commonly used because it is easy to make, and cheap, polyester is a synthetic fiber made from coal and petroleum. 

The process of creating and treating polyester uses detergents, petrochemical dyes, formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), dioxin-producing bleach and chemical fabric softeners. These additives are often toxic to an adult human body, so just think how they are affecting your baby!

We at The Topponcino Company don’t think this is right.

We believe our world’s babies deserve the best, most natural products possible. That is why we are dedicated to using 100% natural materials in all our products.

For example, our topponcino insert pillows are made of 100% natural cotton needled into a low-loft batting material. Absolutely zero polyester.

A positive side effect is that natural cotton fiber releases very low levels of hydrogen peroxide which is a well known antiseptic and disinfectant for viruses and bacteria.

Keep your baby’s health in mind…stick with natural cotton!
