GALAB Substances of Interest (SOI) Program

GALAB Substances of Interest (SOI) Program

SOI program from Galab: Product analysis at the highest level

In contrast to the food sector, the market for hygiene products is not regulated by strict legally prescribed limit values. Nevertheless, the protection of end consumers is equally important for importing, manufacturing and selling companies. In order to be able to identify harmful substances in time, the analysis of non-food products is also essential. To support you as a qualified testing laboratory in risk management, GALAB developed a customized SOI program (Substances of Interest).

As experts in this field, we test various products for contaminants. These products include consumer goods for daily use and, in particular, hygiene products such as tampons, panty liners and diapers. But we also regularly examine clothing, children’s toys and care products. Our analysis ensures that your products are free of various harmful substances.

Why product analyses are important for you and your customers

Quality and safety are becoming increasingly important aspects for the end consumer. The customer wants to know that a purchased product does not contain any harmful substances and that this has been reliably tested. For hygiene products there are no limit values – but it is still in your interest to have your product range regularly tested by a competent partner.

This is exactly where GALAB’s SOI program comes in. We have listed various parameters from different substance groups that are crucial for regular monitoring of product quality. Especially in the sensitive areas of Babycare and Femcare, it is crucial that a comprehensive and professional analysis is performed.
Products that come into contact with babies’ sensitive skin on a daily basis should not contain harmful substances under any circumstances. In these analyses, for example, we have defined 19 parameter groups for which we test your products. These include substances that can cause allergies as well as toxic and carcinogenic substances such as formaldehyde or acrylamide.

We carry out our analyses using a variety of methods that we have developed within the company. These are supplemented by specifications and methods of the industry and its associations, for example EDANA. This means that a large number of analytical methods for your products are available to you when you work with us.
