In the realm of sustainability and conscious consumerism, certifications play a vital role in assuring you of the safety and eco-friendliness of the products you purchase. One that has gained significant traction in recent years is the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100. For us as Modibodi, a brand dedicated to creating innovative and sustainable period and leak-proof underwear, being Oeko-Tex® 100 certified on all our products represents a commitment to both quality and environmental responsibility.

What is Oeko-Tex® 100 Certification?

Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 is a Swiss, independent testing and certification system for textile products at all stages of production. Established in 1992 by the International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile Ecology, Oeko-Tex® 100 sets strict criteria regarding the presence of harmful substances in textile products. These substances include chemicals that are known or suspected to be harmful to human health, such as carcinogens, allergens, heavy metals, formaldehyde, pesticides, flame retardants and many more.

The certification process involves comprehensive testing conducted by independent laboratories to ensure that textile products meet the specified criteria for different product categories. Only products that meet the stringent requirements of the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 are awarded the certification.

Modibodi's Commitment to Oeko-Tex® 100 Certification

For Modibodi, obtaining Oeko-Tex® 100 certification on all of our products signifies a dedication to providing customers with not only high-quality and effective apparel, but also products that are safe for both you and the environment. While it is possible to obtain Oeko-Tex® for a single component of a garment, Modibodi’s commitment extends across EVERY aspect of the production process, from the selection of fabrics to the treatments applied and the manufacturing facilities where the products are made. Each of these steps in the production process have all received their own Oeko-Tex® certification which is why Modibodi holds 4 Oeko-Tex® certificates.

This means that not only are the fabrics used in Modibodi products certified, but also the treatments applied, the dyes used for the beautiful colours and patterns, and even the manufacturing facilities where the products are made have also been tested and certified.

This attention to detail reflects our unwavering dedication to transparency and integrity in every step of the production process.
