Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services geared up to test allergenic disperse dyes in the UK

18/08/14

Warrington, 18th August 2014 - Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services UK, whose UKAS accredited laboratory is located in Warrington, Cheshire, is pleased to announce its newly developed testing capabilities for allergenic disperse dyes.

Disperse dyes are organic dyes of low water solubility and are suitable for dyeing fibres such as polyester, nylon and acrylic. Approximately twenty disperse dyes have been identified as having the potential to cause an allergic reaction when in contact with the skin. They are not legislatively banned in Europe, however many retailers have already restricted the presence of these dyes in their products in order to protect their clients from potential contact dermatitis.

Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services UK is now offering textile retailers, brands, vendors and manufacturers a fast testing service for 22 allergenic disperse dyes following the German method DIN 54231.

Jonathon Thackray, Managing Director at Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services UK, comments: “As fashion retailers are increasing their focus on restricting potentially harmful chemicals from their products and supply chain, it is essential for our UK laboratory to be able to offer a wide scope of analytical testing services. We have a very experienced team of textile experts who have already helped many UK retailers and brands develop their restricted substances policies. Retailers and brands are indeed under increasing scrutiny of NGOs on hazard chemicals, such as Greenpeace via their long-running DETOX campaign.”
