What is Screened Chemistry

Screened Chemistry is an innovative method of assessing, scoring, and certifying textile chemicals for human and environmental health characteristics. This rigorous certification program shows your company’s commitment to sustainable chemistry. Screened Chemistry certification is required by brands like Levi Strauss & Co. and accepted by brands including H&M, Gap, and NIKE as their preferred method for selecting safer chemicals.

Screened Chemistry certification with SciveraLENS provides you with the tools you need to formulate safer chemistries and market your products to many global fashion, apparel, and footwear brands.

Screened Chemistry Process Overview

The Screened Chemistry process follows 4 main steps

Screened Chemistry Scoring

Submitting Your Products for Certification

  1. Confidential Full Formulation Disclosure
  2. Priority Chemical List screen
  3. Positive Chemical List screen
  4. Verified Comprehensive Hazard Assessment

Based on results of these steps, each ingredient and impurity in the formulation receives a Screened Chemistry score from 0 to 50, as well as an overall Screened Chemistry score from 0 to 50 for the formulation. The higher the Screened Chemistry score, the more preferred the chemical or formulation.

See Screened Chemistry Scoring Rules v2.1 (2018)

Whether you choose our Screened Chemistry Services or take advantage of a Rapid Screen subscription, your first step will be to complete a confidential full formulation disclosure through our easy to use Screened Chemistry Submission Form. We will confirm this information with you and begin the Screened Chemistry assessment and certification process.

For Screened Chemistry scoring and certification, the product information form will ask for the following:

  • Basic information about each (i.e., product name, etc.)
  • Confidential Full Formulation Disclosure (including sub-supplier formulations) (by chemical and concentration)
    • All intentionally added chemicals at any concentration
    • Any impurities (e.g., residuals, byproducts, etc) present in final formulation at 100 ppm (0.01%) or greater
    • Any chemicals present as impurities at any concentration and also listed on the ZDHC MRSL
  • Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and Technical Data Sheet (TDS) for each product or products
  • Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for any sub-supplier mixtures or chemicals in your product or products
  • Polymer Assessment Form for any polymers in your product or products
  • Signed Disclosure and Declaration of Accuracy Form

Scivera’s powerful software platform assists in gathering this information including sub-supplier ingredients while protecting confidential ingredient information.
