How Greenleaf Bamboo Sheets are Made | Part 3: Testing & Certification

How Greenleaf Bamboo Sheet Sets are Made | Testing & Certification

In Part 2 we covered the production of Greenleaf's bamboo fibers.  In this post we will explore the OEKO-TEX testing and certification process that ensures that every thread used in Greenleaf's organic bamboo sheet sets is non-toxic and eco-friendly. 

OEKO-TEX Certification for Bamboo Viscose: Ensuring Non-Toxicity

The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification is a globally recognized benchmark for textile safety and sustainability. When it comes to bamboo viscose, this certification process plays a crucial role in guaranteeing that each fiber is non-toxic and safe for you and your family.


The certification process for bamboo viscose involves rigorous testing and evaluation conducted by independent laboratories accredited by OEKO-TEX. The tests evaluate a range of criteria among the extensive list of over 1000 harmful substances, focusing on both the safety aspects and environmental implications of the fibers.  Certification is only granted when it is shown that no toxins are present in any thread or component.

One of the primary tests conducted is for harmful substances such as heavy metals, pesticides, and formaldehyde. Greenleaf's bamboo viscose fibers undergo thorough testing to ensure that they meet the stringent limits set by OEKO-TEX, ensuring that they are free from harmful chemicals.

Additionally, OEKO-TEX certification also evaluates the environmental impact of the production process, including aspects such as wastewater, chemical management and energy consumption. This holistic approach ensures that bamboo viscose fibers not only meet safety standards but also adhere to sustainable manufacturing practices.

 So when you crawl into  your ultra-soft Greenleaf organic bamboo sheet sets you can rest easy knowing they are safe and healthy for you and your family.
