Safechem has announced the Certification Body ECOCERT Greenlife has positively assessed its trademarked Sensene solvent as a GOTS approved additive in line with the applicable criteria of Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) – Version 6.0.
GOTS is the world’s leading standard for the processing of textiles (clothing, home textiles and textile hygiene products) made from certified organic natural fibres. It imposes strict environmental requirements on the entire textile production chain and requires compliance with social criteria.
Accordingly, Sensene can be used for application in the processing of GOTS certified textile products. Sensene is based on a modified alcohol formulation that is inherently biodegradable.
The positive assessment of it as a GOTS approved additive further sets it apart from other textile cleaning solutions, says the company. It gives textile cleaners additional assurance that the solvent is free of hazardous substances and meets environmental criteria, with low toxicity and high biodegradability.
Sophie Demicoli, the company’s marketing specialist for textile cleaning, commented: “The evaluation of Sensene as GOTS approved additive marks another important milestone for Sensene. We are very confident that Sensene can help even the most discerning dry cleaners to balance the requirements for quality cleaning, sustainability, safety and health.”
