SGS Chemical Testing for Textiles
SGS offers a comprehensive range of services to help brands ensure their products are truly organic, including non-GMO screening of the raw materials using ISO IWA 32 to ensure no genetically modified cotton has been used.

In addition, they offer chemical residue tests for a range of substances, including alkylphenol and alkylphenol ethoxylates, adsorbable organic halogens, azo dyes, chlorinated benzenes and toluenes, chlorinated paraffins, chlorophenols, cyclic siloxanes, disperse dyes, heavy metals, formaldehyde, glyoxal, organotin compounds, per- and polyfluorinated compounds, pesticides, phthalates, and PAHs. If a substance is detected at a level above the acceptable limit, the product cannot claim to be ‘organic’. After all, in the end, it’s only trusted because its tested.
