Oeko-Tex and Hohenstein Develop Comprehensive Product Portfolio

The Oeko-Tex Association together with Hohenstein as one of its founding members have developed a comprehensive product portfolio to provide everyone involved in the textile value creation chain with the best possible security and conformity regarding the use of chemicals. This provides transparent testing and certification systems, which build on and go hand-in-hand with one another.

The aim of the Oeko-Tex product family is not only the fulfillment of currently required standards and limit values, but also the efficient path towards this, individually for each company. Four Oeko-Tex modules are available with this aim in mind:

  • Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex: Independent testing and certification for textile chemicals, colorants and finishing agents
  • Detox to Zero by Oeko-Tex: A status report to evaluate established chemicals management and waste water and sludge quality, with the aim of compliance with the Greenpeace Detox campaign
  • STeP by Oeko-Tex: Independent certification of production facilities with holistic analysis and evaluation of all relevant areas such as environmental management, environmental performance, social responsibility, chemicals and quality management, as well as occupational health and safety
  • Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex: An independent certification system and label for textiles and accessories at any production level, tested for harmful substances
