Abstract: Always more frequently consumers are exposed to hundreds of potentially hazardous chemicals in their everyday life. These compounds can come into contact with their body through three different pathways: inhalation, ingestion and dermal absorption. The scope of the present work was to make a survey on the level of free and releasable formaldehyde that can be found in textile products sold on the European market and produced all over the world, to develop a method to better mimic the foreseeable conditions of use and to assess whether the detected amounts of released formaldehyde are hazardous to human health through dermal exposure.
