Testing and Quality - Cadmium, Nickel and Lead
As a leading importer and trade supplier of childrens accessories we aim to maintain the highest possible quality standards for our products. We also take very seriously the safety aspects of introducing children's hair decorations into the market.
All our products are tested for compliance with EC legislation on cadmium content and where appropriate for nickel release. Most of our testing is carried out in-house using our own spectrometer which can identify metal content. We have invested over £20,000 in this machine. Few other accessory importers wholesalers and manufacurers have this facility, and we recommend you satisfy yourself that any other trade supplier you may be using is verifying the compliance of their products. Details
Although we do not trade in toys, where a product can be said to have "play value" we test it for complaince with EN71 - the EC directive on toy safety. This is carried out for us by an approved testing house. Included in this category are wands, wings, children's tiaras and tutus amongst others.
How we pack our goods
All our products are individually carded and barcoded in some way for easy retail display and intergration of EPOS systems. The cards we use are generally matching silver cards though we do use white cards for some younger child products. Most of our products are packed in assorted packs of 12 except for more expensive items which are packed in smaller quantities - often 3 or 6 pieces per pack.
