Substances of Interest Program

Substances of Interest Program

Our Program

Importing, manufacturing and selling companies have a great interest in identifying and eliminating harmful substances in their products in order to protect the end user.

As an experienced partner, GALAB supports the monitoring processes of these contaminants and offers its customers highly qualified advice. Many years of experience in the field of hygiene articles distinguish GALAB in addition to the particularly low limit of quantification. On top of that GALAB offers an extremely fast standard processing time of ten business days.

On this basis, GALAB has now developed the so-called SOI (Substances of Interest) program and provides its customers with excellent monitoring processes. In this context, various parameters from different groups of substances are listed, which ensures gapless monitoring of product quality. The products are individually tailored to the special requirements of the markets worldwide. The SOI program is exclusively in the field of residue analysis and not applicable to the field of release analysis within the REACH regulation.

Sanitary products are designed to come in contact with the skin but if critical SOI are present in products then consumers could be at risk of experiencing extreme reactions – therefore consumers place particularly high demands on baby diapers, since it is all about ultimately protecting the smallest and most vulnerable among us.

GALAB SOI Femcare Program

Female consumers have the right to assume that the countless materials and substances with which they come into contact with daily do not contain any harmful or allergenic elements, as they are protected by strict requirements for these internationally circulating goods.

For this reason, safety and quality assurance are fundamental for manufacturers and this is where our experts at GALAB can assist you. We take a close look at your samples and check them for residues in accordance with your specification and the applicable legal requirements.

In addition to classic contaminants that are viewed critically by the public, GALAB can now offer a wide range of SOI analysis. Various parameters from different groups of substances are listed there, which offer a complete monitoring of product quality.

Professional Risk Assessment

In cooperation with EDANA (Global Association of the nonwoven Industry), innovative consumer relevant testing methods were developed. These standardised test methods are used to ensure reliable analytical results across a broad range of hygiene products and their related raw materials. The data of these harmonised methods are used for exposure-based risk assessment to ensure continued consumer safety. We would be more than happy to advise you personally and tailor our product frames to meet your individual needs.
