(association for the promotion of body-friendly textiles) It took four years of research work as part of a joint project with Baden-Württemberg at the Institut für Textil- und Verfahrenstechnik (Institute for textile and process technology) in Denkendorf in Germany, to develop a new testing procedure. For a period of several years, the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, the institute and the textile industry joined forces to find a solution for ensuring the manufacture of bodyfriendly textiles. The testing medium consists of living, highly sensitive cell cultures.
Any materials that could detach from the textiles during use are absorbed by the contact gel and exposed to the cell cultures. It is only when no changes are observed in the cell cultures, that the product has successfully passed the test.
The result is a resounding: absolutely safe.
This effect-related test is, in fact, so strict that it complies with the standards applicable to the testing of medical products.
