Choosing an Organic Mattress
So, you’ve realized your current mattress isn’t natural and you’re ready to take charge of your health and invest in an organic mattress. When shopping, it’s important to notice certifications and materials.
One of the biggest things you should look for are certifications. There are “natural” mattresses out there that contain blended latex (latex that is mixed with fillers). There are also mattresses that may be using natural latex but don’t use certified organic wool as a natural flame barrier or don’t have a GOTS-certification for their finished product.
When shopping for a non-toxic mattress, look for the GOTS logo. GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard.
Savvy Rest latex mattresses are GOTS-certified organic as a finished product and are manufactured in a GOTS-certified facility. The casing of the mattress is also made of GOTS-certified organic cotton and GOTS-certified organic wool. Yes, that’s a lot of GOTS but yes, that’s how you know it’s truly an organic product.
Savvy Rest offers both Dunlop and Talalay latex in their mattresses. Customers can choose which one they prefer or they can opt for a mattress that contains both.
Savvy Rest is the only mattress manufacturer that offers completely GOTS-certified organic mattresses containing natural Talalay latex.
Our latex mattresses are also Greenguard GOLD certified, which means that they meet strict standards for low chemical emissions and are safe for even the most vulnerable populations (children and the elderly).
A third certification to look for is GOLS. GOLS stands for Global Organic Latex Standard. The Dunlop latex in Savvy Rest mattresses is GOLS-certified. In order to achieve this certification, the latex must be composed of more than 95% organic raw material.
