Barnhardt Purified Cotton

The Barnhardt Family has produced cotton fiber for more than 100 years for use in medical, pharmaceutical, heath, personal, and home care applications. It’s earned us the title, “The First Family of American Cotton.” We are the world leader in purifying cotton using our Proprietary Ultra-Purification Process in which each individual cotton fiber is singled out, scoured, washed, cleansed, purified using gentle hydrogen peroxide, flood rinsed,
four-stage dried, and finished.

Our Purified Cotton contains zero residual chemicals, zero toxins, zero impurities, and Totally Chlorine Free (TCF).
