Sciessent, the leading provider of antimicrobial and odour absorption solutions for the textile and apparel industries, has been awarded the Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex certification for its Lava XL, a next generation odour control technology.

Sciessent's Lava XL has passed two rigorous assessments driven by Oeko-Tex to gain Eco Passport certification, including a chemical substance comparison against the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 restricted substance list and an analytical laboratory verification to confirm the product does not contain unintended by-products or contaminants.

Eco Passport helps brands to achieve a high standard for health and human safety by assisting in the sourcing and use of Oeko-Tex compliant materials. Eco Passport analyses textile chemicals, colorants, and auxiliaries in a two-step process that confirms that the compounds and individual ingredients meet specific criteria for sustainability, safety, and regulatory compliance. Chemical compounds are checked against the comprehensive Oeko-Tex list of concerning substances that is compliant with REACH and ZDHC guidelines.

“The Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex certification is an important part of our overall sustainability commitment. Eco Passport provides a confidential, verifiable mechanism for us to confirm to our customers that Lava XL meets their strict criteria for environmentally responsible textile production,” said Steven Cunningham, director of marketing for Sciessent.

“We appreciate Sciessent's participation in the development of this powerful new certification tool for sustainable textile chemical manufacturers. Their expert input throughout the pilot phase was instrumental in finalising the Eco Passport verification process and validating that it is a robust and meaningful certification system,” said Georg Dieners, Oeko-Tex general secretary.
