Azo colourants in romper suites, organophosphorus compounds in rain jackets or pesticides in sheepskins. Again and again, frightening results on children’s clothing and other items from testing laboratories unsettle many parents. With the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and the new LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX®, OEKO-TEX® makes consumer labels available to retailers and manufacturers to help address the growing and affluent target group of health-conscious parents directly with respect to effective product safety.
These days, parents are not just concerned about quality and price when buying children’s clothing. They also want to have the good feeling that their purchase decision was right with regards to sustainability. The MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® label creates clarity with this: Labelled articles are harmless to health and sustainably produced, according to the valid OEKO-TEX® guidelines. All of this is communicated transparently to parents on a small label.
