Safe. Sustainable.

This is the primary focus area for personal care products placed on the market by Vinda.

All materials used are assessed to make sure they are safe for their intended purposes.

To ensure the continuous production of safe products, each raw material is subject to a safety assessment by the Product Safety Function and must obtain a Product Safety Approval (PSA). 

The safety assessment is based on the ISO-standard 10993 on “Biological Evaluation of Medical Devices”, which gives guidance on biological testing. Accordingly, cytotoxicity testing (damage to cells) and skin irritation testing is performed for materials in close skin contact. Only external test laboratories are used for these tests.

Materials also undergo chemical analysis to check for presence of contaminants. These analyses are also performed at external laboratories. Each Product Safety Approval has a limited time of validity. Subsequently, each material is subject to reassessment at a certain frequency aimed at confirming the safety of the material.
