Oeko-Tex is an independent testing and certification system for textile products. The Oeko-Tex100 Standard applies 100 robust fastness properties and chemical tests to ensure products are free and safe from harmful substances and safe to be in contact with skin.
Auskin has successfully gained the Oeko-Tex ‘Confidence in Textiles’ label in both Class 1 for Ivory and Class 2 for Ivory and for all our light to medium coloured woolskin. Given our products are made from wool on sheepskin, the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 analysis and checks are more stringent than for a single textile fabric. They are not simple criteria to meet, and the Auskin technical team have undertaken a multitude of trials and tests in order to achieve the standard.
