What is Oeko-Tex Certification?

Oeko-Tex is a globally recognized test for textiles. In order to receive certification the textile:

  1. Must pass 100 parameters and simulations to determine detailed content of materials and human reactions for health and safety.
  2. Be evaluated and screened for any harmful substances present within processed textiles that can come into contact with consumers

What is EuroLatex Eco-Standard?

Our latex complies with the EuroLATEX Eco-Standard, a standard designed to scientifically test and approve standards for latex foam.

  • The EuroLATEX Eco-Standard was developed by the European Latex Foam Manufacturers Association in close co-operation with one of Europe’s leading and most reputable scientific institutes, TFI Deutsches Teppich-Forschungs Institut in Aachen, Germany.
  • The Eco-Standard defines limits of substances considered harmful to health to ensure the latex foam does not contain any volatile or allergen-producing compounds.
