Hygiene and Sanitary Products Testing

Sanitary products are designed to get into contact with skin. Consumers react highly sensitive when it comes to the topic baby nappies, especially when there are reports about undesired contaminants. The require­ments for product safety have become much stricter in recent years. Thus, apart from functional properties of the product, focus of consumer interest is also on residues.

Currently there is much discussion about many substances of the ECHA-SVHC candidates list and about the attempt to include newly proposed substances by ECHA (Consultations on proposals for identification of SVHC) but also about the SIN list. We would like to offer our support with our analytical service spectrum We check your products, for example for N,N-dimethylacetamide (DMAC), DMF, Bisphenol A, F and S and phthalates.

We support you with all your questions concerning residue testing of sanitary products or their raw materials. Because of our international network we serve suppliers from all over the world. In addition GALAB is an active member of EDANA (European Disposables and Nonwoven Association).

Consumer Durables Testing

Everyday Objects
We come into contact with many objects of everyday life. There are many contact options, e.g. with skin. Therefore gymnastic mats, bathing shoes or massage gloves should not release harmful substances upon contact with sweat or saliva. The same applies to objects we touch like garden hoses or handles.

Scents
Our nose detects scents of surrounding consumer durables. The range extends from the pleasant intended smells of a flower potpourri to the unpleasant chemical smells of some plastic products. The unpleasant smells are not necessarily caused by harmful substan­ces. GALAB analyses allergenic fragrant substances for you, musk compounds or residues of undesired substances in recreational products and consumer durables of all kinds.

Toys and Baby Care Articles TESTING

Wood, Metal, Plastic, Textiles
Toys are manufactured with various raw materials. Again and again there are reports on contaminated toys: undesired plasticisers, nitrosamines, nickel or allergenic fragrances are just a few examples.

Legislation
In June 2009 the EU has updated the regulation on safety of toys (2009/48/EC, toys regulation). Already since July 2011, the manufacturer or importer warrants for the technical safety of toys placed on the market. Since July 2013 the second part of the toys regulation is in force which defines maximum limits for applied chemicals.

The new regulation bans cancerogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic substances (CMR substances) in toys. The maximum limits for nickel, allowed PAHs and CMR substances were lowered. Newly included are organic tin compounds. 55 allergenic fragrances are banned completely, 11 have to be declared.

The stricter arrangements in Germany remain in force for the time being.

Product Safety
We are your partner when chemical product safety is concerned. We check conformity of your products according to current legislation or your own specifications.

Textiles TESTING

Again and again there are reports on contaminated textiles – unauthorised dyes, undesired plasticisers and heavy metals are well-known examples. Consumers react especially sensitive where textiles for infants or babies are concerned.

We are your partner where chemical product safety of your textiles is concerned. We check your goods for undesired ingredients and therefor offer a broad spectrum of analytical parameters. Contact us, we are happy to help select relevant analytical parameters for you
