You're Helping Your Health

Immunizations are critical for modern disease prevention, but our clothing may be impeding vaccine effectiveness, which sucks to say the least. 

That is why we believe it is so important for us to shift the fashion industry!

Here’s the thing… PFC’s are causing this. We get it, for the outdoor enthusiast, weatherproof clothing is highly preferred. Ya know, because of rain and stuff. Unfortunately, this type of clothing is often made with PFC's. 

Basically, PFC (per- and polyfluorinated chemicals) are a group of nasttty toxic chemicals. PFCs are all entirely human-made chemicals that do not occur naturally. They are regularly used in water resistant products and as of late, your UNDERWEAR. 

People are becoming more aware of the impact of PFC's as more research is being done. Unfortunately, these yucky, toxic chemicals can affect the person wearing them. For some PFCs, there is even evidence that they encourage tumor growth, cause harm to reproduction, and alter the hormone system. Exposure to PFC's has also been linked with kidney and testicular cancer, obesity, and reduced response to vaccines.

Our bodies deserve better, especially during a time where vaccine efficacy is so important. That's why at For the Feel we’re on a mission to #MakeShiftHappen in the fashion industry!
