1.What is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®?

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety.

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® applies throughout the textile industry and its scope covers textile and leather items at all levels of production, including textile and non-textile accessories. The standard is also applicable to mattresses, feathers and downs, foams, upholstery, and others material with similar characteristics.

OEKO-TEX® consists of 18 independent research and test institutes in the field of textile and leather ecology in Europe and Japan with contact offices in more than 60 countries.

Products that pass the test in this system are allowed to carry a certification label that guarantees to the consumers that the product does not contain harmful substances at levels that can be dangerous to the human body. No matter beddings or sleepwears, most of Rachelsilk's products own the OEKO certification and are safe and healthy for your skin.

Based on OEKO-TEX® products’ intended use, there are 4 classes:

Class I-43% of all certificates: Textiles and textile toys for babies and children under 3 years old, e.g. underwear, romper suits, bed linen, bedding, soft toys etc.

Class II-53% of all certificates: Textiles having a large part of their surface in direct contact with the skin, e.g. underwear, bed linen, shirts, blouses etc.

Class III-1% of all certificates: Textiles have no contact with the skin, or only have a small part in contact with the skin, e.g. jackets, coats, interlining materials etc.

Class IV-3% of all certificates: Furnishing materials for decorative purposes such as table linen and curtains, but also textile wall and floor coverings etc.

A tested textile product is allocated to one of the four OEKO-TEX® product classes based on its intended use. The more intensively a product comes into contact with the skin, the stricter the human ecological requirements it must fulfill.

Rachelsilk products (manufactured by JIAXIN SILK Corp.) have obtained Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class II certification, which means our product passed a highly reliable test consisting of over 100 strict test standards determined by the above research institutions.

An OEKO-TEX® certificate is valid for 12 months. At the end of this time, it can be renewed for another year. This approach is recommended to ensure continuous product safety and smooth processes all along the textile production chain.
