Purification Process

SCARY THINGS
CAN GET INTO COTTON
BARNHARDT
GETS THEM OUT

Cotton is grown all over the U.S. under strict USDA, FDA, EPA, and state departments of agriculture standards to protect consumers. Regardless of whether the cotton is traditional or organic, some interesting and sometimes scary things get into cotton. It’s our job to get them out.

HERE’S HOW THE BARNHARDT ULTRA-PURIFICATION PROCESS PRODUCES
THE SAFEST, PUREST, ALL-NATURAL COTTON FOR HUMAN USE.
