WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE OEKO-TEX CLASS I CERTIFIED?
Oeko-tex is an internationally recognized independent testing system for textile products in all stages of production.
JAYA is Oeko-tex class I certified, meaning all of the fabric has been tested and verified to be free of harmful substances, many of which are known to be harmful but not legally regulated in the textile industry. Some of the tested substances include pesticides, chlorinated phenols, heavy metals, and allergy-inducing dyes. The criteria for testing is reviewed and updated annually, which means the fabric is tested each year to ensure compliance with the guidelines.
Your skin is permeable – when you wear clothes that have been processed with harmful chemicals at any stage of production, those chemicals can be absorbed into your body. At Jaya, the entire pant making process is free from these substances and with class I certification are deemed safe for even newborns to be exposed to. The fabrics are required to have a skin-friendly pH balance; it will not irritate your skin or leave it feeling dry.
