The safety and well-being of you and your family is our priority.
Right from the outset, in addition to taking the opportunity to consult with professionals who work in the field of childcare,
MHUG wanted to test its products in accredited laboratories,
also for parameters not currently required by European law.
The following tests are carried out on MHUG baby carriers:
- Physical and mechanical tests, to ensure the product's resistance and durability
- Chemical tests, to ensure that the fabrics are free from potentially toxic substances
- Flammability Testing
Initially, our products were analysed by UL-ICQ with a team of experts who carried out a risk assessment to evaluate any possible dangers.
In the absence of specific European legislation (where legislative work is still in progress), a designated test protocol was established and followed,
thereby enabling us to evaluate product compliance with current non-European legislation, a protocol developed in order to help improve the safety of our products.
The outcome of the tests was positive.
Safe and tested fabrics
The criteria by which we select our textile suppliers are very strict: safety, quality, professionalism.
We require verified proof from our suppliers that any dyes used are non-toxic and comply with REACH regulations
(the regulation for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals).
Depending on the products therefore, we use fabrics which are free of harmful chemicals and allergens with parameters conforming to Community RegulationOEKO-TEX® Standard 100
o il Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), recognised as being the most important international standard for the certification of textiles made from natural fibres in organic farming.
Thanks to a project co-funded by Promos, we have commissioned further tests on textiles at a level of Italian excellence:
For our accessories (MHUG Warm! and MHUG Poncho) together with 100% cotton, we use
Mirhon Newlife® , an environmentally-friendly yarn,100% made in Italy Newlife™ is a unique, complete and certified system of recycled polyester filament yarns from 100% post-consumer bottles gathered and processed entirely in Italy, apart from polymer, which is obtained through a mechanical process, not chemical, and spun into yarn, thanks to an exclusive horizontal partnership agreement.
