It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. Safe for workers and the planet - manufactured in a sustainable and socially responsible way OEKO-TEX® product labels help consumers identify products that have been rigorously tested against a list of up to 350 toxic chemicals.
Sun Protection UPF 50+
Sun Protection UPF 50+ Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates how much UV radiation (both UVB and UVA) a fabric allows to reach your skin. For example, a UPF 50 fabric blocks 98 percent of the sun’s rays and allows two percent (1/50th) to penetrate, thus reducing your exposure risk significantly.
WRAP Certified Ethical Production Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production, is an independent, objective, non-profit team of global social compliance experts dedicated to promoting safe, lawful, humane, and ethical manufacturing all over the world by certification. It certifies factories according to twelve “Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production Principles”. WRAP certification is recognized around the world as proof of social compliance in the apparel industry. We only certify individual production units, allowing our auditors to get an “on the ground” perspective of each facility’s operations to ensure that they are maintaining compliant practices. All certifications require periodic renewal depending on the level, and all certified facilities are subject to unannounced follow-up visits during their certification periods.
Packaging & Shipping
Every effort has been made to ensure bask products and shipping packaging as eco-sustainable as possible. Paper and card are FSC-certified. For shipping packets we use Recycled Bio Bags which have D2W technology.
d2w® technology turns ordinary plastic at the end of its useful life, in the presence of oxygen, into a material with a different molecular structure. At the end of the process, it is no longer a plastic, and has changed into a material which is biodegradable (by bacteria and fungi) in the open environment.
