Company certificates

Product certificates

We frequently have our products and their components tested by independent laboratories and institutes; for skin friendliness, for absence of hazardous substances and for lots more. Here is an overview of the certificates issued to our products.

Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 logo

Oeko-Tex® Standard 100

The Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 is a globally consistent testing and certification system. The more intense the skin contact of a product, the more stringent the requirements are that it must fulfil: This is why the second highest classification, Class II, applies for safety gloves. Testing is not only in accordance with the legal standard, but also in line with the current state of research. Oeko-Tex® therefore not only sets more stringent values for heavy metals like chromium, nickel and mercury, it also takes into account carcinogenic and allergenic dyestuffs and the use of solvents like formaldehyde. Every year, test methods and lists of pollutants are adjusted to scientific findings.
