Why Oeko-Tex is important

The Standard 100 by Oeko Tex is perhaps the most comprehensive certification textiles manufacturers may aspire to obtain and is one of the world’s most recognized and widely used certifications for textiles tested for harmful substances.
A textile with the STANDARD 100 certification proves the article is harmless for human health. Independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes conduct the test based on extensive criteria. The testing considers numerously regulated and non-regulated substances which may harm human health. In many cases, the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements. The criteria catalog is updated at least once a year and expanded with new scientific knowledge or statutory provisions. It is not easy for manufacturers and customers to keep an overview of the legal situation concerning harmful substances daily. Experts from the OEKO-TEX® institutes do this for you.
As sungas and swim briefs are in direct contact with skin, for us was not even a choice not to work with textiles that have to accomplish this certification.
