The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is an independent testing and certification system for raw textile materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production. It has the largest circulation worldwide.
Textiles are tested for harmful substances and products with this label are considered safe. Only when all the components of the final product, including seam yarns, prints, decorative materials and labels comply with the required criteria, is the garment certified according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100. Compliance with the Standard is reviewed annually. The more intensive the skin contact of the fabric, the stricter the human ecological requirements to be adhered to.
The textiles are tested for prohibited and restricted substances, legally regulated substances, known harmful (but not legally regulated) chemicals as well as parameters for healthcare such as allergens. In addition, all products must have a skin-friendly pH value and have good color fastness.
