We found it in Durable Water Repellent, or DWR
DWR is also called C0. This name is not entirely correct because, despite being much better for the environment, the substance still contains carbon. The carbon does not have fluor on it, however, but water-repellent end-groups which are waxy and therefore automatically repel any water. The finish is PFC free, earning it the OEKO-TEX® certification, but does not repel oil like the C-series did. A small sacrifice considering the substantial benefits of DWR regarding the environment and our health.
Now you know that your upholstery and curtains are safe for you, your loved ones and the planet.
