In order to ensure that the textiles are harmless to health, a catalog of criteria for product certification was developed. It consists of over 100 parameters. Set up standards include not only substances that are prohibited or regulated, but also other substances that, according to current knowledge, have health implications. The scope of research also includes parameters of preventive importance. This ensures a level of security that goes far beyond the statutory guidelines.

OEKO-TEX® testing methods are based on simulation tests, that take into account possible routes of entry of chemicals into body:
Through the skin
The tests are carried out using an artificial perspiration solution to determine if and in what amounts the substances present in the textile enter the body as a result of contact with the sweat
Absorption by the digestive tract
In the case of products intended for children, saliva resistance is important. This type of test is performed using artificial saliva solution.

Inhalation of harmful substances
OEKO-TEX® laboratories conduct volatile emissions testing and odor determination to check the likelihood of harmful substances entering the human body through the respiratory tract.
The phrase „Trustworthy Textiles” is synonymous with responsive production of textiles, security and transparency worldwide. It is recognized by manufacturers, traders, but also consumers of fashionable, functional and colourful textiles.
