Chemical certifications are given after different types of third-party laboratory testing, which are designed to identify hazardous chemicals through scientific methods.

To define the characteristics required to obtain the certification, the different organizations also consider rules and regulations of countries and international institutions, including brand restricted chemical lists.

The purpose of a chemical certification is to promote better alternatives.

Only the chemicals that obtain the certification are products that can be considered safe for humans and for the environment.

Garmon is one of the first chemical companies of the garment finishing industry that decided to certify its products, offering its customers a further guarantee of their superior ecological performance.

Garmon’s preferred certification programs include:

ZDHC Gateway

The purpose of the ZDHC Programme is to shift the textile industry towards a zero discharge of hazardous chemicals, improving the environment and people's well-being.

The Programme led to the creation of the ZDHC Gateway, a database of products that conform to ZDHC's MRSL and represent safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals.

Garmon embraced the ZDHC Programme since its beginning, bringing all relevant products to the Gateway. 

SCIVERA

With decades of chemicals experience gathered by a team of toxicologists, strategists, data experts and software engineers, Scivera has mastered the art and science of Screened Chemistry assessments and certifications.

The world’s most recognized brands and their suppliers use Scivera for chemical screening, alternatives assessment, and chemicals management.

Garmon, consistent with the decisions of international brands as Levi’s, H&M, C&A and Nike, chose Scivera to certify the chemical compliance of Garmon products with the most used MRSLs, and with the ZDHC program.

The certifications obtained by Garmon’s products prove that responsible development and production without aesthetical and performance trade-off are possible, making Garmon’s solutions the ultimate choice for a safer planet.
