Its purpose is to test products with chemical, analytical, and physical lab tests to make sure those products comply with national and international guidelines and standards. One of the priorities of the Eco Institut is to measure emissions.

Euro-Latex® Eco Standard Our products conform to the EuroLatex Eco Standard, which defines the maximum acceptable limits of substances considered harmful to health. This ensures that the latex foam we use do not contain any volatile or allergen-producing compounds. The certification attests that our products are safe and pose no risk to the sleeper.
The Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 The Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 is a globally uniform testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production. The Oeko-Tex® Association awards the label “Tested for harmful substances according to Oeko-Tex® Standard 100” which attest to the cleanliness and purity of the products and ensure the products are processed by a company which complies with health standards.
