We want to be
All of our underwear is safe.
Since day one, at Revol Girl we have always paid incredibly close attention to the quality of the fabrics we use, and every single one of our fabrics are tested and certified. We wouldn't even consider anything less for our customers - and our team. We pride ourselves in being handmade, so all of our fabrics are being handled by the team for 8 hours a day, so it is incredibly important to all of us to never use anything that would cause any harm! Below is a breakdown of every one of our fabrics, as some have different certifications to others!
1. Inner fabric (touches body) - Bamboo - OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certified (pg 25). Milled overseas and certified by our Canadian supplier.
2. Heavy Absorption Pad fabric (underneath, not visible) - Bamboo and Organic Cotton - CPSIA certified, plus organic yarns used are GOTS certified, California Proposition 65 approved (this is required because the fabric is made in the US).
3. Leak Proof fabric (middle layer, not visible) - Laminated Organic Cotton with Silvadur - same supplier as above so also CPSIA certified, plus organic yarns used are GOTS certified, California Proposition 65 approved. This fabric has been infused with SILVADUR™ antimicrobial silver ions to inhibit bacterial growth, control bad odours and create long lasting freshness without toxic chemicals. SILVADUR® is proven to be safe against the skin. Tests of bamboo, cotton and polyester treated with 10 times the amount of SILVADUR® [used in our fabric] found no skin irritation or sensitization after multiple exposures. Both these fabrics are milled in the USA and meet some of the highest standards in the world. They are specifically produced for infant reusable diapers so they are highly scrutinized and tested. Their unique process permanently melt-bonds our specially-treated TPU film (leakproof) to the fabric without toxic solvents. The process emits no toxic waste or VOCs that are harmful to the environment and/or the wearer.
4. Outer fabric - Nylon Spandex - OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certified. Milled in Italy, and complies with all applicable EU standards.
As we grow, it is our core value to maintain quality and transparency, which means we will never even consider using toxic (or non certified fabrics) as we eventually move our production into local manufacturing! Period proof underwear is such an amazing and necessary product for all menstruators, and it should never be something that causes any harm.
