Peace of mind for us and our customers
Certification of a quality management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and DIN EN ISO 22716:2007 (Cosmetics GMP) has contributed to an outstanding quality standard in Nölken products for many years. Quality and hygiene are the prerequisites for a perfect product. But only controlled quality provides 100% peace-of-mind.
We are able to create a safe product in accordance with our customers’ wishes thanks to careful selection of raw materials and thorough quality controls in all processes.
Certification in accordance with IFS Household and Personal Care certifies the high level of safety and quality in our processes. In the field of “development and manufacturing of cosmetic wet wipes and liquid cosmetic products”, TÜV Nord has certified that the IFS HPC requirements are met at the higher level.
Sustainability certificates are becoming ever more important for purchasing decisions.
FSC® certification indicates that we manage the raw timber which is used as a nonwoven or cellulose in our wet wipes and nursing pads in a responsible manner. The aim of this certification is to guarantee the comprehensive protection and conservation of forests. It guarantees verification management for certified timber – from the forest to the finished product. As an independent organisation, the FSC(Forest Stewardship Council) is committed to sustainable forestry.
We indicate careful handling of timber with PEFC certification. The aim of these certifications is to guarantee comprehensive protection of the forests. Every step in the processing of the raw material becomes visible through the certification: from the forestry operation through to manufacturing of the end product.
As an independent organisation, the PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) is committed to the preservation of biodiversity.
We indicate careful handling of palm oil, palm kernel oil and their derivatives with RSPO certification. The aim of certification for the Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) supply chain standard is to support the sustainable cultivation of oil palms and to ensure traceability.
