Eco-Tested Mattress Components

Mattresses Free From Harmful Chemicals and Off-Gassing

Eco-Tested Clean and Safe For Consumers

Our mattress components are free of any harmful substances. We use natural latex foam and high-grade flexible independent coils, in covers made from certified organic stretch cotton and eco-certified natural wool which is beneficial both for your health and for the environment.

Free from harmful chemical offgassing (or outgassing), they are all ecologically certified by Oeko-Tex, a European environmental board which tests for chemical content. We only use natural latex, derived from plantation-grown rubber trees and free of petrochemicals. All the wood we use comes from sustainable forests in Canada and Eastern Europe.

OEKO-TEX SUBSTANCE TESTING INCLUDES:

  • Substances which are prohibited by law, such as carcinogenic dyestuffs.
  • Substances which are regulated by law, such as formaldehyde, softeners, heavy metals or pentachlorophenol.
  • Substances which according to current knowledge are harmful to health, but which are not yet regulated or prohibited by law, such as pesticides, allergy-inducing dyestuffs or tin-organic compounds.
  • Parameters such as colourfastness and a skin-friendly pH-value, which are precautionary measures to safeguard consumers' health.

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certifications

ALL our components are certified by Oeko-Tex Standard 100 eco-certification confirming that they conform to the strictest European standard for harmful substances and chemicals in mattresses.  For a validity check of individual components, please visit www.oekotex.com and enter certificate number into the ‘validity check’ box at mid-page and search. (Please Note: Oeko-Tex certificates always include a complete product category – to have a separate certificate for each individual component would be unnecessary and cost-prohibitive).

FAQ...

Are Your Mattresses Chemical-Free?

European Sleep Design mattresses contain no harmful chemicals, no PBDEs, no formaldehyde, no dangerous residues that can be inhaled or absorbed. All of the textile components of our beds have been thoroughly tested and certified clean and safe by Oeko-Tex, an independent testing agency based in Europe, and to their premier Oeko-Tex 100 standard. Additionally, our all-natural Talalay latex carries a EPEA Cradle to Cradle Certified GOLD certification.

While we do use certified organic cotton in our mattresses, we are strong proponents of Oeko-Tex certification as it is a much better indicator of the quality and purity of the FINISHED component than any organic certification some producer might hold for the raw material (e.g. dying organic cotton with some artificial dye and still calling the end product organic).
