OEKO-TEX® Standard 100
OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is a globally recognized certification system that sets strict requirements for textile products at all stages of production, from raw materials to finished products. It is designed to ensure that textile products are free from harmful substances and are safe for human use.
The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification is issued by the International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile and Leather Ecology (Oeko-Tex), a global organization headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland.
To achieve OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification, textile products must be tested and certified by independent, accredited laboratories that use standardized testing methods. The certification covers various harmful substances, including pesticides, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and other chemicals known to be harmful to human health.
Products that have been certified according to the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 can be labeled with the OEKO-TEX logo, which gives consumers confidence that the product has been tested for harmful substances and is safe to use.
Overall, the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification provides an important measure of assurance for consumers and helps promote sustainable and responsible production practices in the textile industry.
