The quality inspection notice issued by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine recently showed that in the sample test of more than 200 children's clothing in 9 provinces and cities including Beijing and Shanghai, 26 products were unqualified. Because infants and young children are sensitive and poor in disease resistance, unqualified children's clothing containing toxic substances can cause infants and young children to be allergic, inflammatory, and even induce cancer. Therefore, the quality and safety of children's clothing needs to arouse great attention from all parties. The safety of infant clothing is often overlooked. Clothing is often referred to as the second skin of the human body. When infants and young children wear safe and qualified clothing, they can provide protection for infants and young children. Their bodies cause harm. Infants and young children’s skin is delicate and sensitive, has poor resistance to friction and disease, and is susceptible to irritation and infection. The sweat glands and blood vessels of the skin are under development and cannot adjust the pH of the skin with changes in environmental temperature. Therefore, unqualified clothing is suitable for infants. The physical damage of young children will be greater. In the survey, the choices of many parents and teachers are worrying: some young parents often buy baby clothes in online shops. They think this way is more convenient, and the styles of online baby clothes are very novel; some parents will Go to the small commodity market to buy costumes for babies and toddlers, because the clothes sold there are cheaper; some kindergarten teachers, every time they perform, they will go to the small commodity market to buy costumes for their children in bulk, and so on. It is not difficult to find that these parents and teachers attach great importance to the style and price of the clothes when choosing clothes for their children, but ignore the most important factor, the quality and safety of infant clothes.  There are many hidden dangers in unqualified infant clothing.   Because of the particularity of infants and young children's body, the country's testing standards for the safety of infants and young children are more stringent than adult standards. Test items include: pH value, formaldehyde content, decomposable aromatic amine dyes, color fastness to water, color fastness to perspiration, color fastness to dry rubbing, color fastness to saliva, and peculiar smell. Because many infants and young children like to bite on clothes, a test for color fastness to saliva has been added to infant textile products to prevent textile dyes from entering the infant's body through saliva, which will adversely affect the growth and development of infants. However, in the sampling test, there are still many unqualified infant clothing, which lays huge hidden dangers to the children's health.   The pH value exceeds the range and harms the skin of young children. The normal pH value of human skin should be between 5.5-7.0, which is slightly acidic, which can protect the human body from infection by germs. The skin of infants and young children is relatively alkaline, and the ability to adjust the pH of the skin with changes in environmental temperature is poor. If the pH of the clothing worn by the infant exceeds the range of 4.0-7.5 (that is, the infant wears clothing with an unqualified pH value), the skin The pH will be destroyed and cause skin inflammation, causing damage to the sweat gland system and nervous system of infants and young children. For some infants with sensitive skin, it is easy to cause allergic symptoms such as skin itching. In the production process of many unqualified infant clothing, insufficient acid-base effect and substandard dye control will cause the pH value of the clothing to exceed the safe range.   The free formaldehyde exceeding the standard is harmful. Some small manufacturers add formaldehyde to the auxiliary agent in the fabric production process in order to achieve the effects of anti-wrinkle, shrink-proof, flame-retardant, and durable printing for infant clothing. In the process of human body wearing and using textile products with excessive formaldehyde, free formaldehyde will be gradually released, which can cause skin inflammation through the respiratory tract and skin contact, and harm the respiratory system. Long-term intake of low-concentration formaldehyde can cause symptoms such as loss of appetite, weakness and insomnia. Toxicity to infants and young children is manifested in asthma, bronchitis, chromosomal abnormalities, and decreased resistance.   Decomposable aromatic amine dyes exceeding the standard can cause cancer. The organs of infants and young children are not fully developed and have poor resistance. Wearing clothing containing decomposable aromatic amine dyes for a long time will cause the aromatic amine dyes to be decomposed, enter the infants and young children, and undergo a reduction reaction to generate carcinogenic aromatic amine compounds. Aromatic amine compounds can cause headaches, nausea, tiredness, insomnia, vomiting, coughing and other adverse symptoms in infants and young children, and can even cause changes in the structure and function of DNA in cells to induce cancer. Decomposable aromatic amine dyes are used by many small and medium textile and garment manufacturers in the production of infant clothing fabrics due to their diverse colors, simple manufacturing, and low prices. Among them, banned azo dyes are synthesized from 24 carcinogenic aromatic amines as intermediates. Dyes are extremely harmful. Parents and teachers like to buy cute clothes with bright colors, embroideries, and printed patterns for their children. They don't know that the decoration of unqualified infant clothes is likely to contain carcinogenic dyes.   Unqualified color fastness can cause infection. Because infants and young children often bite clothes and other things in their mouths, when the color fastness of infant clothes does not reach level 4, the infants and young children will suck dyeing or harmful residues into the body and be injured. In addition, the clothes and the skin are close to each other. During the rubbing process, the dye will stimulate the skin to appear erythema and itching. If it is not found in time, as the rubbing time is prolonged, papules and large patches of erythema may appear. There will be ulceration, erosion, and even large blisters. Improper handling may also cause bacterial infections.
