Oeko-Tex Certifies BASF Helizarin® EVO Inks Safe For Baby Clothing

The Switzerland-based Oeko-Tex Association has certified that Helizarin® EVO P100 ink-jet inks from Germany-based BASF SE comply with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, Product Class I requirements. Class I is the most stringent category in the standard, and products meeting the requirements are considered safe for use by babies and small children. The standard includes BASF's Luprejet® ECO pretreatment, and applies to cotton fabrics such as those used for baby clothing.

"For our customers, ecological aspects are becoming extremely important in addition to technical printing and quality requirements," said Dr. Gernot Diehlmann, head of the ink-jet business at BASF. "The Helizarin EVO range has achieved top marks here. We will continue to set high ecological and sustainability standards in future."
