What does oeko stand for


Database for environmentally and health-friendly detergents, cleaning agents and rinse-off cosmetic products

The listed products were rated independently. They bear the EU Ecolabel, the Austrian Ecolabel or have been assessed by DIE UMWELTBERATUNG and the Energy & Environment Agency of the State of Lower Austria and classified as less harmful to the environment and health - compared to conventional products.

Öko-Rein stands for

  • no microplastics in detergents and cleaning agents
  • biodegradable
  • low ecotoxicity
  • Ingredients that are not very harmful to the environment or health
  • environmentally friendly and resource-saving production
  • environmentally friendly packaging

The criteria for eco-pure products are checked independently by bewusstkaufen.at and are classified as recommendable: see www.bewusstkaufen.at

The detergents and cleaning agents that bear the Austrian eco-label are also listed on Öko-Rein. That is why the Ministry of the Environment has financially supported the creation of the Öko-Rein database. In addition, DIE UMWELTBERATUNG recommends washing and cleaning agents that bear the European Eco-label or the Nordic Swan.

The City of Vienna uses the Öko-Rein database to purchase ecological products as part of "ÖkoKauf Wien" and has therefore also promoted the creation of this database.
