Tianhai Lace awarded Skin Friendly declaration for lace collection for intimate apparel

The new lace collection for intimate apparel from the Chinese lace manufacturer Tianhai Lace has been endorsed by the Hohenstein Institute.

The institute carried out their skin compatibility test on randomly selected samples from the collection to confirm that no cytotoxic substances leach out of the sample materials. As a result, Tianhai was awarded the “Skin Friendly” declaration for this lace collection.

“Intimate apparel is like a second skin for consumers, as it is the base layer for all their other clothes,” says Sabina Fu, Sales Manager at Tianhai Lace.“Our lace forms part of intimate apparel garments worn by women all over the world. We want to ensure that they are comfortable and that customers don’t have to worry about any harm done to their skin by wearing products made using our lace”.

Hohenstein’s skin compatibility test is adapted, in the case of products worn close to the skin, to test for interaction with living skin cells. Samples undergo a thorough evaluation to determine whether skin cells are damaged by contact in a way that could result in skin irritation. A selection of Tianhai lace was analysed and found to be non-toxic to skin cells. It can therefore be promoted as skin-friendly.

In addition, all lace made by Tianhai is also covered by an Oeko-Tex® 100 certification. Tianhai Lace is also committed to improving the environmental impact of its manufacturing operations, having obtained ISO 14001 certification.

The Hohenstein skin compatibility test is a way of documenting close-to-the-skin interactions. Consequently, being awarded the “Skin Friendly” declaration not only increases product and consumer safety but also enables a company to benefit from the high recognition rate of Hohenstein’s tested quality.
