Is the waterproof layer GOTS Approved?
Yes! We only use materials that are non-toxic and meet the strict criteria for GOTS certification. The whole pad is GOTS certified, not just the cotton. The waterproof layer is made from urethane film and is about 5% of the total weight of the pad. It is MADE SAFE certified non-toxic and does not contain vinyl or phthalates for an all-around safer, healthier product.
Yes. The fitted border has tight elastic all the way around the perimeter to ensure a snug fit and prevent slippage.
Is the Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector crinkly/noisy/stiff?
No. Our soft-knit organic cotton fabric stretches with every movement - almost like a rubber band. This flexible feel, prevents noisy crinkling and stifness. You will not even notice that it is there!
Will the Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector protect against bed-wetting?
Absolutely! It is fully waterproof and will protect your mattress from virtually all spills.
Is the Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector UL/GREENGUARD Gold certified?
Yes! All Naturepedic products are UL/GREENGUARD Gold certified and UL Formaldehyde Free verified.
Will the Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector protect my mattress from bed bugs?
The Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector's waterproof material is impenetrable to bed bugs. However, it is a common misconception that bed bugs live exclusively in or on mattresses - they can also live just about anywhere people live. So, even though they can't get through the pad, there is no mattress protector or cover on Earth that can prevent bed bugs.
Is the Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector breathable?
It is somewhat breathable due to the high "vapor transmission rate" of the material. This means that it will remain completely waterproof while allowing a small amount of water vapor through. The result is a less sweaty and cooler, more comfortable sleep.
Will the Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector material shrink in the wash?
Yes, the pad will shrink slightly after the first wash/dry cycle. To account for this, we size the material a little larger than the mattress's specifications.
If you use the pad prior to washing it, it will fit loosely. That is why we recommend washing it before first use.
