What is Oeko-Tex silk?

Oeko-Tex is a testing and certification system which relates to textiles and materials. The standard is applied throughout all stages of the production of the materials, including the fibres, yarns, fabrics and even the end of the line products. The standard looks at whether or not there are any harmful substances within that particular fabric or material.

It has been around since 1992 and has been applied around the world. Oeko-Tex was created at a time when there had been negative press that looked at how there were possible poisonous substances in textures and that some of these were actually harmful to health.

The idea of testing these materials has grown over time, and there are now around 15 test and research centres in both Europe and Japan. Each one will work to the same international criteria.

Why choose Oeko-Tex silk for face masks and bedding?

There are a number of reasons why you should invest in Oeko-Tex face masks and Oeko-Tex approved bedding. One of the key factors is knowing that it doesn’t contain any harmful substances and is kind to your skin.
