Organic cotton is the purest form of cotton, grown without toxins, synthetic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or GMO’s
(genetically modified organisms). Organic cotton farmers have developed creative ways to grow cotton without these chemicals.
This is accomplished by the use of natural fertilizers, beneficial insects, and innovative weeding techniques.
In mattresses, organic cotton is a healthier alternative to foams (which are chemically treated) and latex
(which is allergy-prone). All Naturepedic organic cotton mattresses feature U.S. grown and certified organic cotton filling and provide a healthier
and more comfortable sleep environment.
Certified organic cotton means the following:
- NO synthetic pesticides
- NO synthetic fertilizers
- NO genetically modified organisms
- NO carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic chemicals
- NO endocrine disruptors
- NO non-biodegradable detergents, degreasers, or surfactants
- NO chlorine bleach
- NO plastisols
- NO other synthetic chemicals
