What Is an OEKO-TEX Certification?

Pure Parima Certified Egyptian Cotton Label

You love your family and want to ensure every product you bring in to the home is as safe and healthy as possible. So, it’s only natural to be especially cautious when it comes to bedding. After all, sheets and pillowcases come into contact with the skin all night, every night. Fortunately, there’s a way to evaluate your bedding for quality and safety before you buy it. 

OEKO-TEX textiles bear the coveted OEKO-TEX certification, indicating that the prestigious International OEKO-TEX Association has proven they’re free of hazardous end-products and components. When you see the Standard 100 label on the packaging, you can feel confident knowing the products have been tested and are free of harmful levels of toxic substances. 

Many products can be purchased with OEKO-TEX certification, including clothing, sheets, pillowcases, duvet covers, and blankets. Wondering if your current bedding is OEKO-TEX compliant? The good news is you can evaluate the validity of an OEKO-TEX label by entering the number on the site’s Label Check. Note that the system is case-sensitive, so entering the number accurately is essential. If you discover your products aren’t certified, you may want to consider replacing them with items that are more healthful for you and your loved ones. 

Importance of the OEKO-TEX Label

Some textiles contain toxins that can harm your health. When you choose products with the OEKO-TEX label, you can feel confident that the fabric has been tested against approximately 350 toxic chemicals that can impact the body through breathing, saliva, or skin contact. Additionally, OEKO-TEX regularly updates its methods based on the latest scientific data and technologies. 

What Materials Can Be OEKO-TEX® Certified?

While the OEKO-TEX Association mostly deals with textiles, other goods can also earn the OEKO-TEX® certification label. Here are some of the many materials and components that may contain toxic chemicals:

  • Cotton
  • Wool
  • Polyester
  • Rayon
  • Threads
  • Buttons
  • Zippers
  • Linings
  • Dyes 
  • Coatings
  • Metal
  • Glass
  • Foam
  • Plastic 
  • Leather

Do your research to ensure you’re purchasing the best and safest products for yourself and your family members. The good news is that you can rest assured knowing all Pure Parima products boast this certification to demonstrate their quality and safety. 

CEA Certification

Of course, just because a bedding product is OEKO-TEX certified doesn’t mean it offers everything your family needs for a good night’s sleep. That’s why Pure Parima also ensures all its products are Cotton Egypt Association certified. Created to ensure the purity of cotton products, the CEA is administered by Cairo’s Cotton Egypt Association. In order to receive the group’s stamp of approval, companies must pay an initial fee and submit both samples and records indicating where they purchased their Egyptian cotton. The cotton then undergoes a DNA analysis to determine whether the fibers originated in Egypt or another part of the world. Only those products containing true Egyptian cotton may bear the coveted CEA seal on their packaging. 

Pure Parima Certified Egyptian Cotton Sheets

When you choose Pure Parima over the competition, you can feel confident knowing you’re receiving 100 percent pure Egyptian cotton bedding made from fibers picked by hand in the Nile River Valley. The end result is cotton sheets and pillowcases that get softer with every wash and retain their durability for years to come. 

Our OEKO-Tex and CEA-Certified Sheets and Pillowcases

It’s hard to get a good night’s sleep if you’re constantly tossing and turning.
