Is Your Mattress Naughty or Nice?

Keep Chemicals Off Your Christmas List

Naughty or Nice? Keep Mattress Chemicals off Your Christmas List | Naturepedic Blog

Santa might see you when you’re sleeping, but can he see what you’re sleeping on? As an organic mattress company, we’re often asked, “So what do you put in an organic mattress?” We prefer to respond to that question with what we DON’T put in our mattresses.

Below is our mattress naughty list. Find out if your mattress is a true gift or if the chemicals inside make it worse than a lump of coal!

The Mattress Naughty List

At Naturepedic, we stick to a very strict list of chemicals we never use in our mattresses and accessories that we consider unacceptable.

–Polyurethane Foam: This includes memory foam, bio-based or soybean foam, or “eco” foam blends. These “plant-based” foams are actually just polyurethane foam with a little soybean oil added in. Polyurethane foam is highly flammable and comes with a pile of harmful flame retardant chemicals to meet flammability regulations. You definitely don’t want to be sleeping on that!

–Flame Retardant Chemicals: Naturepedic meets all federal flammability regulations without the need for flame retardants, natural or otherwise. Our superior materials, such as organic cotton and wool, aren’t nearly as flammable as the synthetic materials used in other mattresses. Many flame retardant chemicals that are being used are under investigation. According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, flame retardants have been associated with a number off adverse health effects including endocrine and thyroid disruption, impacts to the immune system, cancer, reproductive toxicity, and neurologic function.

In addition to those listed above, we also never use the following potentially hazardous chemicals:

– Antibacterial Treatments or Pesticides

– Formaldehyde

– Glues or Adhesives

– GMO Cotton or Other GMOs

– Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs)

– Phthalate Plasticizers

– Synthetic Latex

– Vinyl/PVC

(Here is a complete list of the materials we don’t use in our mattresses).

The Mattress Nice List

What DO we use in our certified organic mattresses that puts us firmly on the nice list? Naturepedic mattresses for both adults and children are handcrafted in our GOTS certified organic factory in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Our superior materials provide a No Compromise approach to safer sleep that even Santa approves of!
