What makes a mattress non-toxic?

Sleep should be refreshing and rejuvenating, not a time where you’re unintentionally inhaling harmful chemicals emitting from your mattress. At Healthy Rest Mattress, we create a variety of non-toxic natural mattresses that are suitable for those with allergies, chemical sensitivities, and those who just want to experience a healthier sleep.

When shopping for a non-toxic mattress, there are a few things you should look for. All mattresses are required by law to contain fire-retardant materials. Unfortunately, the cheapest and most common way to make mattresses fire-retardant is to douse them in toxic chemicals. Since these chemicals are extremely unhealthy to breathe in overtime, it’s important that you understand how to tell the toxic mattresses apart from the non-toxic ones. At Healthy Rest Mattress, we utilize CertiPUR-US approved foams which are made without phthalates, CFCs, formaldehyde, and PBDEs.

Another important thing to keep in mind is that some “natural” and “organic” labels can be misleading. Just because a mattress is labeled as organic does not mean that it’s also chemical free and the materials used play a big factor in that. A mattress is able to be labeled as organic if it contains any organic materials, even if it’s just the filling or the surface fabric. A mattress may be made from organic cotton, but it may have a vinyl covering which is laced with chemical fire retardants and more.
