Webinar on Hypoallergenic Textiles for Today's Sensitive Consumers

May '10
Hohenstein Institute America will host a free online seminar entitled “Hypoallergenic Textiles for Today's Sensitive Consumers” on Tuesday, June 15, 2010 at 12:00 noon EST. “Hypoallergenic Textiles for Today's Sensitive Consumers” will present Hohenstein's testing methodology featuring a unique cell culturing process for determining that textiles do not damage skin cells (skin friendly) nor contain irritants that can cause allergic reactions (hypoallergenic). This webinar is part of Hohenstein's “Under 1 Roof” education series on textile testing and certification.

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 50 million Americans suffer from allergen sensitivities. A 2008 National Center for Health Statistics report indicated that of the 3 million children suffering from food allergies (up 18% in the decade), a third also have skin sensitivities. Scientists have identified more than 3,700 substances as skin allergens.

“Consumers are exposed to more potential skin allergens today than ever before,” says Sam Moore who heads Hohenstein Institute America. “The textile products market has many new fibers and fabrics that are made all over the world with new textile processing chemicals and dyes. This growth in innovation has contributed to the increasing presence of potential skin irritants. Testing and certification can help brands and retailers provide skin friendly and hypoallergenic textile products that will be truly appreciated by sensitive consumers.”

Gregor Hohn, the award-winning biologist from the Institute for Hygiene and Biotechnology at Hohenstein, will review the testing options available to ensure that textile products are skin friendly and hypoallergenic. Hohn will also discuss the certification options available to communicate these premium features to consumers.
