Customers want to be sure.

Studies show that consumers are:

  • Demanding more than just high-quality
  • Want products that are safe from harmful substances and produced in an ethical and environmentally friendly way
  • Are skeptical of eco claims and prefer 3rd party verification

OEKO-TEX® product labels make these features visible and provide a greater level of transparency.
