GOTS accreditation for Safechem solvent Sensene

Safechem –  a world-wide provider of solutions for the safe and sustainable use of solvents for industrial parts cleaning, textile cleaning and asphalt testing applications – recently announced that the Certification Body ECOCERT Greenlife has positively assessed its Sensene solvent as a GOTS approved additive in line with the applicable criteria of Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), Version 6.0.

GOTS is the world’s leading standard for the processing of textiles – for clothing, home textiles and textile hygiene products  –  made from certified organic natural fibres. The standard imposes strict environmental requirements on the entire textile production chain and demands compliance with social criteria.

The solvent Sensene is based on a modified alcohol formulation that is inherently biodegradable. It is stated to give textile cleaners additional assurance that the solvent is free of hazardous substances and meets environmental criteria, with low toxicity and high biodegradability. Sophie Demicoli –  the company’s marketing specialist for textile cleaning – stated that because of the GOTS accreditation, the solvent could enable even the most critical dry cleaners to balance the necessities for quality cleaning, sustainability, safety and health.
