Hyosung’s Biobased Creora® Earns SGS Certification

Seoul-based Hyosung reports it has received eco-product certification for its creora® biobased spandex fiber from Standard Global Services (SGS). The certification guarantees that the biobased fiber is made using plant materials, and is produced in a harmless and eco-friendly environment. According to Hyosung, a recent third-party life cycle assessment also found that the biobased creora spandex reduces its carbon footprint by 23 percent when compared to the production of regular petroleum-based spandex.

“As a sustainable textile solution provider, it was very important for us to certify and document creora biobased spandex so that our brand partners are able to pass along this verification and sustain consumer loyalty,” said Mike Simko, global marketing director, Textiles.
