The Allergy UK Seal of Approval is a globally recognized certification for products that have minimized or eliminated potentially allergenic chemicals, providing assurance to consumers looking for products safe for sensitive individuals. It is applicable to a variety of products and is recognized in over 135 countries. The certification focuses solely on the final product and does not evaluate the production or supply chains.
To acquire the certification, products undergo rigorous scientific testing by an independent ISO17025 accredited laboratory to prove their efficiency in reducing/removing allergens. The testing protocols, created by scientists and leading allergy specialists, are unique to Allergy Research Limited (ARL) and are based on industry methods, ensuring that products are compliant with relevant standards.
The certification has annual license agreements, implying that products need to maintain their compliance with the certification standards to renew their license annually.
Obtaining the Allergy UK Seal of Approval allows companies to assure customers that their products are safe for those with allergies, having been independently and scientifically tested to reduce or remove allergens. This certification is significant for consumers seeking products that are safe for sensitive individuals, providing them with reliable options that have been verified for their claims.
