What Are Perfluorinated Chemicals

May 16, 2018

Perfluorinated chemicals or PFC's are widely used in the fashion industry for their non-stick and water-repellent properties.  (PFCs) are man-made and are used to make textiles and leather products water and stain-proof. 

 

 

 

Evidence shows that PFCs accumulate in body tissue and persist in the environment.  They are known to bio-magnify through the food chain.  PFC's affect the liver and disrupt the natural balance of hormones, altering levels of growth and the reproductive system.

 

Perfluorooctane sulphonate (PFOS) is a PFC compound highly resistant to degradation.  PFOS are restricted under the Stockholm Convention, a global treaty designed to protect human health and our environment.  PFOS is prohibited within Canada and the EU.


People always ask, what makes organic clothing better?  That is a great question and is a conversation worth having.
