Are there any independent certifications that can help me evaluate the quality of different mattresses?

Independent third-party certifications issued by trusted authorities are the best way to verify the safety and health of mattress materials. While there are some certifications that are not included in the list below, these are the most recognized organic mattress certifications. Thanks to the demands of customers like you, more and more mattress manufacturers have taken the necessary steps to manufacture truly safe mattresses with first-class certifications. Several mattress companies now have the appropriate certifications, but are owned by other entities that manufacture conventional (toxic) mattresses.

Now that you know what can make a mattress toxic, let me tell you about the materials and certifications that make up a non-toxic mattress. People who buy PlushBeds mattresses with CertiPur-US foam can buy with the confidence that they are enjoying all the benefits of this impressive certification, along with the quality standards that characterize the PlushBeds brand. People who sleep on their side with shoulder or upper back pain should also consider the pressure-relieving qualities of a mattress before buying it, as poor pressure relief can cause tension in these areas. I suppose that the mattress that has the certification is the HeveaPur, since no other of their mattresses make that statement.

The Standard 100 certification criteria include quality control measures that ensure that products maintain their quality between annual renewals, but do not require companies to meet social and labor criteria, such as minimum wage regulations and the prohibition of child labor. Mattresses with Greenguard and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certifications meet strict indoor air quality and low emission standards. PlushBeds Botanical Bliss is an organic mattress with GOLS certified organic latex, an organic cotton cover with GOTS certification and OEKO-TEX and GreenGuard Gold certifications on the mattress. If you're looking for a mattress that's low in volatile organic compounds and other chemicals, you might consider a CertiPUR-US certified foam mattress.

For example, one of the companies that has the Oeko-Tex 100 certification for its wool could not reveal that the mattress company only buys wool from them for the production of its mattresses. I originally wanted an organic bed, but after talking to them on the phone, I ended up buying what they call a natural latex mattress (they have certified organic mattresses available).
