FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Cotton Babies® Awarded OEKO-TEX® Certification for Cloth Diapers

Greensboro, NC—October 7, 2015—The International OEKO-TEX® Association announces that Cotton Babies, a leading manufacturer and retailer of cloth diapers and other natural parenting products, has been awarded its OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification. This voluntary, third party certification indicates that Cotton Babies diapers have been tested according to the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 requirements that they not contain harmful levels of a multitude of chemicals. The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 covers more than 300 chemicals considered to be dangerous to a baby’s health such as residual pesticides, carcinogenic dyestuffs, phthalates, lead, heavy metals, and formaldehyde. The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 reflects the latest advances in textile chemistry, up to date medical knowledge, and the current state of textile product safety regulations such as the US CPSC’s Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).

“The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification independently reinforces our quality control program and confirms that our award winning cloth diaper products are the best for parents who are looking for natural products for their babies,” says Jennifer Labit, founder and CEO of Cotton Babies. “In our mission to encourage families to choose cloth diapers in order to prevent waste, save money, and control what is touching their babies’ skin, the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification is yet another point that validates our cloth diapers as a safe, smart, and responsible choice.”

“Textile product safety is a prime concern for parents these days, especially with regard to diapers which are in very close and prolonged contact with a baby’s sensitive skin,” says Ben Mead who represents OEKO-TEX® in the US. “The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification reassures parents that Cotton Babies cloth diapers have been stringently tested for a long list of concerning substances. We are pleased to work with this exemplary company and support their commitment to providing safe and sustainable products for their customers.”

Cotton Babies cloth diaper products have been certified according to the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 at the Class 1 level, the most rigorous certification designed specifically for newborns through toddlers up to the age of three. In addition to testing for harmful chemicals at the strictest limit values, OEKO-TEX® also tests for color fastness to ensure that dyes don’t dissolve in a baby’s mouth or rub off onto a baby’s skin.

Cotton Babies will be exhibiting at the upcoming ABC Kids Expo, October 18-21 in the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall Level 1 – 1849.
