SUSTAINABILITY COMES NATURALLY AT SANTISSIMX”
Innovation is at the core of what we do. From production, fabric and material choices to the brand partners we work with, every decision is designed to bring out your best. Our Conscious Choice* promise is to deliver high quality and high standards in everything we do, which includes our sustainability targets.
We share the same positive and progressive values as our consumers by taking responsibility for and being engaged in the world around us.
Caring means safeguarding every individual. Providing safety and security as well as respecting and including all people. It means feeling empathy and sharing with those who are most vulnerable. Becoming involved with others and trying to see to the needs of every individual.
All Santissimx products, services and experiences are shaped by the spirit that we really care, partly about our own well-being, where beachwear, active / native wear and living a healthy lifestyle are essential and equally as much about our common future. We have made a commitment to build a forever better world.
Our goal is always to deliver high quality products with respect for human rights and with great sensitivity to the environment.
Our business success is based on a healthy, happy and strong society. And our priority is to always work with high ethical business standards, at all levels of the company.
We achieve this through long term supply chain partnership agreements and policies built on shared values. By treating our employees with respect and investing in their futures through a generous wellness package, personal coaching and development training.
Our responsibility is to consistently act with high business ethics, valuing openness, honesty and integrity and at all times and making sure that our business is aligned with our strong ethical compass.
We have a progressive approach to environmental ethics, meaning we nurture a deep-rooted desire to improve things. Including how we manufacture our products and how the product reaches the consumer in the best possible way.
We are never done with reducing our negative environmental footprint on the planet. Instead we strive to consistently meet and improve all applicable requirements of our responsibility as producers - throughout the total lifecycle of the product; from planning to manufacturing to recycling.
Our quality standards are high. When we label a product ‘SANTISSIMX ETHICS’ this means that product is produced of recycled, biodegradable or renewable raw materials and always with as little environmental impact as possible.

USE OF CHEMICALS
We have never been using silver or any anti-bacterial treatments as anti-odor in our beachwear, activewear, nativewear and Yoga-wearproducts as it can be harmful to both human health and the environment.

In order to reduce the impact of transportation of our goods we focus on efficient and simplified logistics and by avoiding air freights as much as possible.
Everything we do is consciously designed to make a better product. Consciously chosen fabrics combine with technical materials to create harmony in form and function. Not to mention an uncommon rigour to the quality and finish; sustainable design is quite simply the soul of the company.

A passion and respect for materials is at the heart of our brand. We are obsessive about honesty and doing things the right way. For us, our consumers and our planet.

A passion for design is at the heart of our brand. We’re fabric fanatics and consciously choose technical materials that perform, but also look and feel beautiful.
There are always trade-offs. Artificial is always artificial, yet recycled is, after all, better than the non-recycled. So Santissimx focuses on increasing the use of recycled materials throughout the collection.
Artificial materials, synthetic and regenerated fibres have some outstanding advantages when it comes to activewear. For example, they keep you cool and tempered, they dry faster, are more stable, keep a fit better, are also more durable and have a longer life span than many natural materials. And if produced well, a long-lasting garment can also be seen as a good option from an environmental perspective. There is no golden rule; but in Santissimx we always do our best to find environmentally friendly options combined with superior functionality for training.
Polyamide and Re-cycled Polyamide. Common in Santissimx collection. Made of oil. A long-lasting soft, strong, stable and elastic fiber with fast absorption, quick-drying, good odor resistance, good color fastness and easy to wash properties. Our re-cycled polyamide is made from pre or post-consumer regenerated fiber, for instance old fishing nets, old carpets and waste from production of polyamide fabrics.
Polyester and Re-cycled Polyester. A small range of the Santissimx collection. Made of oil. A long-lasting, strong, stable and elastic fibre with fast absorbing, quick-dry, good color fastness and easy to wash properties. Less odor control and less soft than Polyamide. Our re-cycled polyester is mainly made of PET bottles and production waste.
Elastane and Re-cycled Elastane. Made of polyurethane or PU/polyester mix. Very elastic/flexible and used in mix with other fabrics to get stretch, good shape retention, improved fit and freedom of movement.
Lyocell is a cellulose fiber made of eucalyptus and produced in a closed production system that saves water and energy and the use of chemicals is controlled and environmentally friendly. That makes it one of the most environmentally friendly materials in the textile business; very soft and strong, good absorption, quick dry, wrinkle resistant, natural odor resistant, and biodegradable.
Modal a cellulose fiber of beech (leafy tree), called man-made cotton and is often mixed with other fibers. Soft and strong, good absorption wrinkle resistant and quick-dry abilities.
Viscose is the first cellulose fiber made of any kind of wood or waste cotton fibers. It is a fluid fabric with good absorption features.
Cotton. Santissimx are increasing use of organic cotton when cotton is part of collection. It is a soft, comfortable and biodegradable fiber with good absorption abilities but long drying time. Ordinary cotton production is water intensive, the use of biocides is high and the production is chemical intensive.
Wool comes mainly from sheep. Great function as a base layer with warming properties even when wet and good absorption. Biodegradable fiber, water-, dirt-, flame- and naturally odor resistant.
