The independent testing experts at OEKO-TEX recently gave their tick of approval to Joyce products. This means our entire comfort range is now OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certified.
What is Oeko-Tex certification?
OEKO-TEX® certification is a signal to consumers that they can be confident in the safety of the products they’re buying.
OEKO-TEX is the International Association for Research and Testing of Textile and Leather Ecology. The organisation’s 18 independent research and test institutes are based in Europe and Japan. Through contact offices around the world, they conduct laboratory tests, company audits and certify products, manufacturers and brands.
Their mission is:
“To create trust in textiles and leather and in their production: through increased product safety, improving sustainable production and a sustainable, transparent value-creation chain.”
When assessing a company’s products, the OEKO-TEX® test criteria takes into account:
- Global legal regulations
- Non-government organisational requirements for safety, and
- Scientific data on maintaining good health
The organisation updates the assessment criteria at least once a year based on new scientific knowledge or statutory requirements.
What OEKO-TEX® certification means to you
As of March 2020, the entire comfort range has been independently certified as free of harmful substances according to the strict global criteria of STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX.
This is good news for all of us – including the buyers of your products.
Standard 100 certifies that products are:
- Free of harmful chemical substances
- Safe for direct contact with the skin
We’re confident that this new certification will help support your business.
With consumers increasingly concerned about product safety and sustainability, the OEKO-TEX® certification means that you can trust Joyce as your partner in creating healthier products for consumers and for the environment.
Alongside our other product and process innovations, this latest certification confirms Joyce Foam Products as a world leader in foam manufacture.
