At the forefront of health protection
The range of retanning agents with low bisphenol content meet the demands for a healthier future for the leather industry.
Reducing bisphenols in leather: a challenge to be met
As of January 2023, BPS and BPF are listed in the ‘Bisphenols Substance of Concern’ of ECHA’s ‘Substances of Very High Concern’ (SVHC) register. Ongoing regulatory developments bring clear consequences for the leather sector. Indeed, the pressing demands for stricter limits on bisphenol content, both in articles and in chemical auxiliaries, could lead to stricter labelling requirements and product restrictions in the near future.

Our new range of low bisphenol retanning agents guarantee the same high performance, whilst adding a variety of desirable properties into the leather.
