Oeko Tex 100 Information

Because organic cotton in the raw stage can be treated with other chemicals along the way during the process into fabric, i.e. toxic dyes, the Oeko-Tex 100 started operating in different stages of the manufacturing of fabrics. Rather than certifying the organic fabric in its raw stage, the end product is certified free from chemicals or residue. This has been a new standard for more than a decade in Europe. There are also limited organic cotton farms on the face of the earth and there is no way the few organic cotton farmers could supply the demand of chemically free cotton to the rest of the world. The Austrian Textile Research Institute and the Hohenstein Research Institute in Germany came together to develop the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 to ensure harmful substances that started surfacing in the early 1990’s would not continue to be used. Pretty much all textiles manufactured and sold in Europe are Oeko-Tex 100 certified and a fair amount of imported textiles as well. All conscientious parents make sure that they only buy Oeko-Tex 100 certified clothes or baby articles.

Oeko-Tex 100 has been the new standard in textile manufacturing in Europe. It is more important than organic cotton as it certifies the finished product, not the beginning product. The end product is ultimately the most important and knowing it is free from chemicals or other harmful residues is the most comforting feeling when wrapping a baby in a baby sling, new underwear, or receiving blanket.

Prohibited Chemicals

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 prohibits or limits the use of known harmful substances. The following parameters are currently specifically included in the list of performance criteria:

  • prohibited azo dyestuffs
  • carcinogenic and allergy-inducing dyestuffs
  • formaldehyde
  • pesticides
  • chlorinated phenols
  • chloro-organic carriers
  • extractable heavy metals
  • nickel
  • color fastness
  • pH value
  • phthalates in baby articles
  • butyl tin compounds (TBT and DBT)
  • emission of volatile components
  • odors

All of the test institutes use identical test procedures and specifications ensuring uniformity world-wide. The specifications to which the institutes work are defined according to the current state knowledge, generally being more rigorous than the statutory regulations in any of the individual countries represented.

Regular round trials are carried out in the member laboratories to monitor and ensure the levels of performance of all the institutes.
