What is OEKO-TEX Standard 100?

In the process of looking for a mattress, you may come across a term that makes you question what is OEKO-TEX Standard 100.  For over twenty five years OEKO-TEX Standard 100 has provided testing and certification of textiles.  It serves as a consistent measure across national borders.  OEKO TEX Standard 100 is the certification that follows once a product meets certain criteria for safety.  The establishment of relevant safety criteria coupled with the development of effective testing has made OEKO-TEX Standard 100 accepted worldwide.  Learn more about what is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 and which mattresses available at Rest Right Mattress have this certification below.



Interested in knowing what is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 criteria?  A complete panel of elements is considered.  There are many elements that have been legally banned that are examined.  Plus, many harmful substances that pose a risk although they may not be banned at the time of testing.  Experts at the OEKO-TEX Association also assess requirements included in the European Chemicals Regulation and ECHA SVHC Candidates.  Lead levels are reviewed as required by the US CPSIA.  What is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 good for?  If a product is certified, it has exceeded international regulations for chemical and substance safety.  The product was rigorously tested and then the company which manufacturers the product is audited for responsible use.


Laboratory tests

If you want to know what is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 testing like, it depends on the product class.  Products are evaluated based on the amount of skin contact that is likely to take place.  There are four major classes for products.  The first class is focused on testing necessary for products that will come into contact with the skin of children and babies ages three and under.  The second product class tests items that will be worn close to skin.  Class three focuses on testing needed for articles that won’t necessarily touch the skin, rather be worn over a layer like coats.  Materials that will be used for décor or as a furnishing would be tested in accordance with limits for class four.  Requirements for each class are different and are stricter for items that will have more contact with the skin.



What is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certification based on?  Laboratory testing is not the only requirement for certification.  Additionally, quality assurance measures within the operation of production must also be in place.  Specific declarations must be made a signed by the applicant to guarantee conformity.  When a product is certified, every part of the product must meet the standard requirements.  Threading and buttons for example, must also meet the same standards as the primary textile.  As you can tell, OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is a certification that is earned.  It is awarded only after a product and its company is held to a specific standard.
