Does down cause allergies?


Carefully cleaned down does not cause allergies. Thanks to Joutsen's unique refining process, which includes double dust removal, and in addition, warm water pampers our down and perfect purity is ensured in a 125 °C thermal treatment, the down and feathers used in our products are completely clean and non-allergenic. In practice, the purity of the Joutsen down is unique as it is 100% dust-free. The down has also been meticulously cleansed of all sensitising ingredients which could cause allergic reactions.

We are the first manufacturer of down comforters and down pillows to be awarded the Finnish Asthma and Allergy label. The label granted by the Allergy, Skin and Asthma Association in Finland shows that the product is clean and suitable for allergy sufferers.
