The Pampers® Safety Promise
Just like you, we put your baby’s safety first.
From the selection of our materials to testing, each day we apply our safety promise in three phases to guarantee performance, as well as your baby’s comfort and safety:
Phase 1: Materials selection. Because safe nappies start with safe materials.
Before becoming part of Pampers® nappies, the materials we use are subject to rigorous selection. Each component has a specific function and must ensure performance, as well as your baby’s comfort and safety.
Our researchers work in collaboration with pediatricians, pediatric dermatologists and toxicologists to validate the safety of the materials, and all our baby finished products.
Our materials strictly comply with the safety requirements from the EU Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety, SCCS/1564/15 concerning the safe use of substances.

Phase 2: Production. A key phase that we control from A to Z
Just like for parents, baby’s safety is our priority. Because of this, there are some important things that we prefer to not delegate, like the manufacture of our nappies. Pampers® exclusively produces its nappies in its own factories (located in Europe). This is crucial for us. We actively monitor each phase of production to ensure the quality and safety of our products:
Each nappy is constantly monitored by cameras and over 500 sensors.
Over 120 nappies are extracted from our production lines and are the focus of over 2,000 verifications per day.
Phase 3: Ongoing testing. For safe, certified nappies that respect baby’s skin
Pampers® nappies are clinically and dermatologically tested. We make sure they can be used in total safety and that they respect your baby’s skin.
Our Baby-dry™ nappies and our Pure Protection nappies are certified STANDARD 100 by the independent institute OEKO-TEX® that tests for several hundred harmful substances. This is one of the most rigorous certifications for baby products worn close to the skin. The OEKO-TEX® label is visible on our Pampers® Baby-dry™ packs and our Pampers® Pure Protection packs.

Pampers® Baby-dry™ nappies, Baby-dry™ nappy pants, Premium protection™ nappies, Premium protection™ nappy pants and Pure Protection nappies do not contain any of the 26 allergens listed by the European Union’s regulatory agency (Directive 2003/15/EEC). The purpose of this list is to inform consumers on the presence of allergens in products so they can avoid using them if they are allergic.
Each week, over 1,200 families come to our research and development center where they use up to 2 million diapers a year and share their feedback with us.
Did you know?
Over 700 scientists around the world work every day on Pampers® nappies and collaborate with independent healthcare professionals (toxicologists, pediatricians and dermatologists) to design the best possible nappies for babies. They take part in each phase of a nappy’s design.
