Certificates and partners

Fall asleep safely. We spend a considerable amount of time in bed, which is why the sleeping products we use must be absolutely safe. The materials must not cause respiratory or skin reactions. Familon products are always carefully tested, which is indicated by many of the certificates we have.

  • Oeko-Tex standard 100

    Öko-Tex Standard 100 – Textiles free of harmful substances

    The materials we use meet the requirements of the Öko-Tex standard 100 certification. Öko-Tex standard 100 is an international textile testing and certification system that restricts the use throughout the textile production chain of certain textile chemicals that are considered contaminants. The criteria for testing for contaminants are based on the latest scientific research, and are continually updated. Product safety requirements are made stricter every year. According to current knowledge, testing of the standard involves examining substances that are harmful to health and are not yet regulated or prohibited by law. The materials used in Familon pillows and blankets generally pass the most stringent Öko-Tex standard 100 class 1 criteria for baby products. All our other materials meet at least test class 2, which is a requirement for clothing, for example.

  • Allergy Label

    Allergy Label – collaborating with the Finnish Allergy, Skin and Asthma Federation since 1996

    The Allergy Label is an indicator of the reliability of products that have been objectively researched and found to be safe. It shows that a product does not contain commonly sensitising or irritating ingredients. Products that have been awarded the Allergy Label are suitable for individuals with sensitive skin, sensitivity to fragrances, allergies, or those suffering from respiratory symptoms and asthma. The fragrance-free Allergy Label products may still not be completely odourless, as the ingredients always have their own characteristic odour.

    Most Familon products have the Allergy Label.
