Chemical substances and health protection

Textiles and clothing

The use of chemicals in the production process of textiles and leathers has made it necessary to identify the dangers inherent in the substances themselves and in the articles that contain them to guarantee the protection of consumer health.

Therefore, restriction measures have been approved that limit or prohibit the production and use of dangerous substances, as well as authorization procedures that ensure their replacement with safer and "sustainable" alternatives.

In addition, it is useful and necessary for the consumer to read the label carefully, which, although not exhaustive, represents one of the information tools for consumers.
