Memory foam is a popular product in many of today’s mattress and bedding products — and even with its exceptional support benefits, there are concerns about its manufacture and health effects.
This is where CertiPUR-US® comes in. This is a program that allows companies to show customers that their memory foam products meet specific environmental and health standards. By applying for certification, a company can display the CertiPUR-US® seal in photos of their products so that customers know that they’re purchasing from a company that cares about lessening the possible risks of memory foam.
Any company that wishes to display CertiPUR-US® certification makes their products without the following:
- Ozone depleters
- PBDE flame retardants
- Mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
- Phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
Such products also have low Volatile Organic Compound emissions to maintain the quality of indoor air.
The guidelines are stringent, so any company that wishes to apply must be willing to meet extremely high standards in order to feature the CertiPUR-US® seal. Not only have these requirements been developed by leading environmentalists, chemists, research scientists, and industry leaders, but they’re also considered to be living documents — that is, they can be revised and interpreted according to new and relevant research and results. This allows CertiPUR-US® to remain current so that you, the consumer, can continue to trust their name and their standards.
US-Mattress carries numerous brands that boast CertiPUR-US® certification — including mattress companies Serta, Simmons, and Spring Air, as well as the furniture and linens brands Klaussner, Jackson Furniture, and Malouf.
