The dried finish of our Osmo products are safe for humans and animals in accordance with DIN EN 71.3 standard.
What is DIN EN 71.3 Standard?
DIN EN 71.3 is the standard referring to Safety in Toys: Migration of certain elements1. The standard is designed to assess the migration of certain chemicals into the body if a toy or components of a toy were to be swallowed by a child.
The assessment immerses the toy in an acid, designed to represent stomach acid, for two hours. After this tie, the acid is analytically measured to see whether chemicals such as lead, cadmium, mercury and others listed within the standard documents are present.
