Flustix Seal - Products that don't contain microplastics
Household products guaranteed free from harmful microplastics
This seal from Flustix primarily certifies products with liquid content that do not contain any microplastics. Based on the only internationally respected and followed microplastic definition by ECHA (incl. ISO/TR 21960:2020 Plastics - Environmental aspects - State of knowledge and methodologies), Flustix tests and certifies in cooperation with its accredited partners. The microplastic definition refers to solid, water-insoluble plastic particles with a size of less than 5 mm, based on the longest dimension or diameter of the plastic particle. For Flustix , this also includes so-called bioplastics or bioplastics that are made from renewable resources. However, based on the ECHA definition, liquid and water-soluble plastics are not taken into account here, since according to the current state of analytical technology, these can hardly or not at all be proven analytically in a qualitatively binding manner and therefore legally secure claiming cannot yet be guaranteed. As research progresses, Flustix will include these materials in its certification programs.
