Safe choice for allergic
PROVEN TO BE THE PUREST POSSIBLE DOWN
Our cleaning and refining process has been developed over decades, and it ensures the absolute purity of the down and feathers. The unique refining process includes double dust removal, and in addition, warm water pampers our down and perfect purity is ensured in a 125 °C thermal treatment. In practice, there is no dust in the filling of the Joutsen down products. The down has also been meticulously cleaned of all sensitising ingredients that could cause allergic reactions.
You can test the dust-free nature with your own hands: when you slap a new Joutsen pillow and watch it against the light, you will not see the cloud of dust that you would normally see with products of other manufacturers. This enables you to witness in a unique way how the purified, authentic Joutsen down product differs significantly from other products.
In 2005, Joutsen became the first down duvet and pillow manufacturer to be granted the ‘allergy label’. This label, awarded by the Finnish Allergy, Skin and Asthma Federation, serves as proof that a product is pure and suitable for people with allergies. The Allergy, Skin and Asthma Federation has examined the purity of Joutsen down products and stated the following:
‘The products are filled with a researched, refined, non-sensitising, and breathable down/feather filling. The products do not contain formaldehyde. The down and feathers do not cause sensitisation, and they do not sustain dust mites.’
The purifying process is carried out in Joutsen’s own feather refinery. With the unique Joutsen Down System refining process, down and feathers become completely pure and non-allergenic. All dust, scurf, fat, and proteins originating from animals that can generally cause allergies are removed from the raw material.
