Good reasons to think about the certification of your products
15 to 20% of the Europan population has an inherited hypersensitivity of the skin and more and more people are reaccting to dyes, impregnating agents, latex, etc. In Switzerland, the number of people with skin problems has risen sharply in recent years. For example, around 20 % of the population suffers from contact allergies and almost one in ten children suffer from skin irritations or atopic dermatitis.
People with sensitive skin or skin irritations look at textiles with different eyes when they buy them. In particular, textiles worn close to the body are a potential source of additional irritation o their sensitive skin. They depend on textiles without allergenic substances and count on products that take their special needs into account. The Allergy Seal of Quality helps them with their purchasing decisions.
