To successfully introduce apparel and footwear products to market, it's important to keep up with the constantly evolving chemical regulatory landscape.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are widely used in the manufacturing of various consumer products, including clothing and footwear. However, these chemicals pose serious health risks to humans and the environment due to their persistence and toxicity. Countries and different regulatory bodies worldwide are starting to ban or severely restrict the use of PFAS.
