About Our Certifications 

Nature’s Child GOTS certification is one of the highest standards of international organic certification.

SKAL – our former certification body has changed its name and broadened its appeal by merging with Controlled Union. This has been a great development. Our new GOTS standard for NATURE’S CHILD ORGANIC BABY ESSENTIALS covers the production, processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, exportation, importation and distributionof all natural fibres. The final products may include, but are not limited to fibre products, yarns, fabrics and clothes.

This means that every processing step must meet certain compulsory criteria. The criteria for the production process are laid down in the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS). They encompass every process-step of textile production (spinning, weaving, washing, etc) and for every step it is laid down which processing aids may (not) be used, in order to gain as much environmental profit as possible. FAIR TRADE is also a fundamental part of the GOTS certification.

The Social and Fair Trade Certificate guarantees that disadvantaged producers in the developing world in the entire supply chain get a better deal by covering the producer’s cost of sustainable production and establishing a Fairtrade Premium which is invested in social, economic or environmental improvement projects. ACO is accredited to certify organic operations in Australia, Europe, Japan, USA, Switzerland, the UK and has official recognition by Quebec Qua. These accreditations and recognitions ensure that your organic product and systems have the highest possible integrity. Australian Certified Organic (ACO) currently certifies about 55% of the Australian organic industry and it is estimated that the bud logo appears on about 70% of all certified organic product in Australia. If consumers are educated they are happy to pay a little more to be assured that they have certified organic products that are safe for you and the environment.
