As a consumer, you might wonder how you can trust companies are using materials that are safe for your health and for the planet. Downlite recognized this concern and chose to pursue certification from an independent company that ensures product safety. Oeko-Tex® evaluates our products for safety from yarn to the finished product, so you can trust that the products you purchase from us are safe for you and yours.
Oeko-Tex is a group of 18 independent research and test institutes that certifies a collection of industries for product safety in the textile industry. We chose to pursue the Oeko-Tex “Standard 100” product certification. All of Downlite’s products will have a “Standard 100” tag, which means that every component of the product you purchase has been tested for harmful substances and is harmless in human ecological terms.
There are several components of the Standard 100 certification: a strict criteria catalog, globally standardized testing, independent testing, and a label check. The strict criteria catalog ensures that every single part of what you get from Downlite is safe. Everything from the threads to the filling is tested to earn us the benchmark certification.
Globally standardized testing ensures that standards are updated to reflect new regulations and new scientific research.
Oeko-Tex gives our customers the assurance that products are held to the strictest testing standards. Their testing institutes are both neutral and independent, so our Standard 100 certification is earned with integrity.
Oeko-Tex also gives our customers peace of mind by offering a label check service. You can check the validity of any of Downlite’s products by visiting the Oeko-Tex website and typing in the certification number on the label. We are in the process of adding Oek-Tex labels to all of the items on DownliteBedding.com (except items in the sale section).
We chose Oeko-Tex because we wanted to ensure that we are offering products that are held to the strictest safety standards. Our consumers can have peace of mind knowing that anything purchased from Downlite will hold the Standard 100 Certification.
