STANDARD 100 label from OEKO-TEX®
As parents, you inspect, you verify, you test everything for your baby’s safety: whether it be baby food jars, toys, the temperature of the bath water or nappies! The safety of clothing and nappies that are worn close to your baby’s delicate skin every day is not always easy to evaluate.
Fortunately, certifications from independent laboratories like the STANDARD 100 from OEKO-TEX® are a good benchmark. That’s the one Pampers® has just chosen for:
OEKO-TEX® is an independent certification institute: Working in total independence from manufacturers and public agencies, OEKO-TEX® has scrupulously inspected all the materials in Pampers® Baby-dry™ nappies and Pampers® Pure Protection nappies (absorbent core, fastenings, topsheets, finishes, etc.) to detect any undesirable substances. Pampers® Baby-Dry™ and Pampers® Pure Protection have been tested, verified and certified.
OEKO-TEX® tests for the potential of over 100 undesirable substances: The STANDARD 100 from OEKO-TEX® not only takes current legislation into account but also goes further by testing for certain substances that are not yet regulated. That is why this label is a valuable complement to the French and European requirements Pampers® already follows. And the list of criteria is updated every year!
OEKO-TEX® standards are not limited to just one test: In addition to the first laboratory tests, OEKO-TEX® not only conducts spot checks on Pampers® Baby-dry™ nappies and Pampers® Pure Protection nappies purchased in stores, but also it performs verifications right in the factory where the nappies are made!
OEKO-TEX® thinks like parents: Just like you, OEKO-TEX® knows that babies are particularly sensitive. That is why the evaluation criteria for products worn by babies close to baby’s skin, like nappies, are particularly strict.
Thanks to the STANDARD 100 certification from OEKO-TEX®, Pampers® continues to work hard to answer the safety needs of babies and their parents even better. And the smile of a baby who is nice and dry is our greatest reward!
