Welspun Global Brands Receives asthma & allergy friendly® Certification

On Aug. 28, 2017, Welspun Global Brands LLC, a leading manufacturer of innovative home textile products, announced that Goodnight Sleep Natural Allergy Friendly Cotton™ mattress pads and pillows have been certified asthma & allergy friendly® by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). This Certification Mark is granted only to select products that have undergone thorough scientific testing and have proven more suitable to individuals suffering from asthma and allergic sensitivities. This all cotton product brings comfort to allergy sufferers without any chemical finishes.
Welspun Global Brands Certified asthma & allergy friendly® products give consumers more choices for a comfortable sleep. “We approach innovation from fiber to finished goods,” states Dipali Goenka, Welspun ceo. “We begin with our consumers so our innovations are relevant to them, such as providing relief to our allergy sufferers.”
Welspun now offers two AAFA certified programs for mattress pads and pillows: the Goodnight Sleep Natural Allergy Friendly Cotton™ Sequential and the Goodnight Sleep: Carefree Allergy-Friendly NanoCore™. Through a rigorous testing protocol, these products were proven to be an effective allergen barrier and crucial part of an overall allergen-reduction plan in the home.
The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program is jointly run by AAFA and Allergy Standards Limited (ASL), a physician-led global certification company that prepares independent standards for testing a wide range of products to determine their suitability for asthma and allergy patients.
“Our joint venture with AAFA, the leading patient advocacy organization for individuals living with asthma and allergies in the United States, has meant the science behind the standards reaches millions more in America using an educational platform,” says Dr. John McKeon, ceo, ASL.
The Certification Program is an independent laboratory-based product-testing program that helps families with asthma and allergies find more suitable products for their homes.
