We understand that you want to take good care of yourself. From the food you eat to the personal care products you use, safety is a big factor.
Because your safety is at the centre of everything we do, we also work with independent experts to re-confirm the materials in our tampons are up to the highest standards. Independent laboratory certifications, such as the OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100, certify that materials that come into contact with your skin and body have been tested for harmful substances. TAMPAX® has chosen this certification for its range and this is why:
Because OEKO-TEX® is an independent certification body:The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is totally independent of manufacturers and public bodies. OEKO-TEX® is a certification system for raw, semi-finished and finished textile products at all processing levels. OEKO-TEX® has screened all components of TAMPAX products (absorbent core, fabric coating the absorbent core, cord, applicator and thread) to detect the presence of undesirable substances. TAMPAX Compak, Cotton Comfort, Pearl and Cardboard have all been tested, verified and certified.
Because OEKO-TEX® tests the potential presence of more than 100 substances:The OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 takes into account the existing legislation referring to harmful substances, but goes even further by testing certain undesirable substances that are not legally regulated. Therefore, the OEKO-TEX® label is a valuable complement to the existing regulations already followed by TAMPAX. And this list of criteria is updated every year!
Because the OEKO-TEX® requirement is not limited to one test:In addition to the first laboratory tests, OEKO-TEX® not only performs random checks on TAMPAX from store shelves, but even carries out a verification directly in the factory where they are made.
Because OEKO-TEX® thinks like you:OEKO-TEX® knows that the more intensive the skin contact of a product and the more sensitive the skin, the stricter the human-ecological requirements that need to be complied with. The strictest OEKO-TEX® evaluation criteria have been selected for TAMPAX as tampons are inserted into the body. The test label provides an important decision-making tool for purchasing TAMPAX.
