Organic Mattress Latex-free

Looking for a  LATEX-FREE non-toxic, eco-friendly, natural, and safe mattress made in the USA?

Here you will learn how to choose one.

Keep in mind that the “natural” on a mattress doesn’t mean anything and even when a mattress claims to be organic may have only a few certified organic materials and that is not enough to make a safe mattress.

WE need to look at the most important certifications for mattresses and they are: the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and, for mattresses that contain latex, the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS)

You will learn about the mattress components, recognize "green-washing" marketing tactics, and will be able to make the safest, healthiest, and overall the best choice for you, your baby, and your family.

You will finally sleep in an organic bedroom.

You will be able to remove chemicals found in conventional mattresses such as flame retardants, adhesives, vinyl, VOCs, polyurethane foam,  isocyanates, perfluorinated compounds, and other questionable chemicals.

When we shop for authentic organic and natural mattresses, we need to study their material.

To make sure they aren't toxic we want to start with their foams. Let's start with the main mattress components to avoid:

Toxic Foams 

Here are the most common, toxic, and cheap.

❌ POLYURETHANE FOAM: polyurethane is made from petroleum chemicals that can emit VOCs—harmful chemicals that can cause respiratory irritation or other health problems. 

❌ MEMORY FOAM: this foam is toxic and polluting. Memory foam is another type of polyurethane foam with chemicals added to give it special conforming properties.

The most common beds are made of memory foam (or viscoelastic foam), flexible polyurethane foam, coils, or combinations of these materials.  Both memory foam and Flexible polyurethane foam are polyurethane foams. These cheap, unhealthy foams are petroleum products, meaning they are derived from fossil fuels.

 

Greenwashing Foams

❌ SOYBEANS FOAM: These foams are full of pesticides, so avoid that too.

Plant-based foam is typically produced with a small percentage of soybean oil or castor oil mixed with petroleum chemicals. It is often marketed as “environmentally friendly,” but plant-based foams emit VOCs just like polyurethane foam.

❌ POLYETHYLENE FOAM: Polyethylene foam can contain fewer contaminants compared to polyurethane foam. It can be made from petroleum-based or bio-based ingredients

Organic Mattress Certifications

You may just learn that your current mattress is toxic with unhealthy or controversial material, so you want to replace it and upgrade to a safer organic mattress. Here is what you need to look for: 

CERTIFIED ORGANIC MATTRESS.  While many claims to be "natural or organic" even when they are not, the only proof is their certification. Always look and also for the official organic certification, without that you will never know.

These are the certifications to look for when shopping for an organic mattress

 

✅ GOTS CERTIFICATION: The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the world's leading processing standard for organic textiles and fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. GOTS requires that at least 95 percent of the materials in the mattress be certified organic, and it prohibits outright the use of certain substances even for the other 5 percent, such as chemical flame retardants and polyurethane, the chief ingredient of memory foam.

✅ MADE-SAFE:  certifies products made with ingredients not known or suspected to cause human health harm, It certified the mattress is non-toxic.

✅  UL/GREENGUARD is a third-party certification program that tests for chemical emissions from consumer products and materials.

Greenguard requires testing of a finished mattress for specific emission limits of formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds. The related Greenguard Gold has more stringent emission limits on the above VOCs.

✅ FSC: Forest Stewardship Council® / Rainforest Alliance practices mission-based principles designed to promote health, limit environmental impact, and support social responsibility.

✅  OCS100: The Organic Exchange OCS100 Certification Program ensures proper tracking of organic material from its source to the finished product. It refers only to the percentage of certified-organic materials, not to the presence of flame retardants, VOCs, colorants, or dyes.

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 doesn’t ensure that a mattress’s fiber is produced organically, it does set limits for the emission of harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are linked to ozone, smog, respiratory illnesses, and memory impairment. It also bans the use of certain chemical flame retardants, colorants, and allergenic dyes.

 

CertiPUR-US applies only to the polyurethane foam in a mattress. While other standards, such as GOLS, bar this foam altogether, CertiPUR-US prohibits certain substances that are in many foams (such as polybrominated diphenyl ether, or PDBE, flame retardants) and requires testing for formaldehyde and other chemicals. If you see this label that means you are buying a synthetic foam mattress.

When we shop for authentic organic and natural mattresses, we need to study their material.
