OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is a product certification that sets requirements for the content of chemical substances that are - or are suspected to be - harmful to our health. OEKO-TEX® is the world's leading health label for textiles and is known by the label 'Confidence in Textiles'. The label shows that the product has been tested and approved according to the requirements set by the international OEKO-TEX® Association.
In Denmark, the Danish Technological Institute is responsible for OEKO-TEX® certification and testing. The label makes it easy for you as a customer to choose products that are not harmful to your health and are less harmful to the environment.
OEKO-TEX® means that the entire product has been tested for harmful substances in a laboratory - including, for example, zippers, buttons, sewing thread and fillings in duvets and pillows. OEKO-TEX® requirements are far more extensive than legislation and depend on how close to the body the textiles are used. The more contact with the skin, the stricter the requirements. There are particularly strict requirements for products used by children up to the age of three. Testing and control is impartial and only carried out by one of the 18 approved OEKO-TEX® institutes. This increases credibility and reduces the risk of errors.
The certificate must be renewed every year, during which the products and production line are tested. In addition, 25-30% of products worldwide are subject to random checks every year. OEKO-TEX implements improvements and new knowledge 2-3 times a year for their certifications.
