Archroma Introduces EARTH SOFT System

Switzerland-based Archroma recently introduced EARTH SOFT, a new softening system based on its Siligen® EH1 vegan silicone softener, which is made using 35-percent plant-based, renewable raw materials. The softener also features ultralow amounts of cyclic siloxanes, which are classified by the European Chemicals Agency as “Substances of Very High Concern.” The range is built around Archroma’s principles of “The Archroma Way to a sustainable world: safe, efficient, enhanced, it’s our nature.”

Archroma reports Siligen EH1 offers a smooth, soft touch as well as good moisture transport making it suitable for shirts, underwear, sportswear, towels and bed sheet applications. The Earth Soft system includes its Hydroperm® wicking agent, which boosts hydrophilic properties on man-made and blended fibers.
