Oeko-Tex® Standard

Snugcosy supplier materials are certified according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1. Oeko-Tex is an independent testing and certification system for textiles, intermediate and end products at all stages of production. By choosing a product made of Oeko-Tex certified materials, you can be sure that you are surrounded by materials free from hazardous substances or harmful chemicals.

What is Oeko-Tex®?

The STANDARD 100 label is the best known and most widespread test label worldwide for textiles tested for harmful substances. The criteria are often more strict than judicial standards, and change consecutively according to new results within medical science. Everything is tested from buttons, zips, sewing cotton threads, labels, hang tags and much more!

The OEKO-TEX® test and certification system is centrally issued by the International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile and Leather Ecology (OEKO-TEX®) with headquarters in Zurich. Its current members are 18 independent and accredited facilities for textile testing and research in Europe and Japan. In addition, the OEKO-TEX® Association currently operates 50 contact offices in all important global regions of textile production.


The process
The certification is both expensive and demanding. As the certification is renewed annually, it requires control in every aspect of the process. Suppliers must co-operate with subcontractors with Oeko-Tex 100 Class 1 products.

Certification
A certificate is valid for 12 months only, and the International Oeko-Tex Association control tests each year with at least 25% of all issued certificates by performing sampling. Oeko-Tex® also controls the product once a year in collaboration with the product owner to make sure it still fulfils the requirements.

Benefits of Oeko-Tex® products ?

  • Oeko-Tex® certified products do not contain any toxic or allergic substances
  • Developments within legislation and science are acted upon quickly with Oeko-Tex® paying close attention
  • Generally, products can be used immediately, without having to wash them!
