“The independent, voluntary Oeko-Tex certification is an important part of the complete Sorona sustainability story,” commented Renee Henze Marketing Leader, at DuPont Biomaterials. “We created Sorona to be a high performance fibre that is better for the environment but, to be truly sustainable, Sorona also must not contain substances harmful to the consumer. The Oeko-Tex testing and certification process confirms this.”

Certification

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified products are tested for concerning substances such as pesticides, heavy metals like lead and mercury, formaldehyde, carcinogenic dyes, residual surfactants, and a long list of other chemicals that can have harmful effects on people as well as on the environment.

The certification requires annual renewal and Oeko-Tex conducts site visits and retail audits to help certificate holders maintain the standard’s requirements. Sorona’s Oeko-Tex certification also means that the fibre can be used in other Oeko-Tex certified textile and apparel products without concern.
