Certified Safety for Piece of Mind
Latex is already famous for being hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, mold and mildew resistant, and for being inhospitable to dust mites. But how do you know if you're buying the real thing? When searching for a mattress, topper, or any other bedroom related furniture, it's important to consider what the products are composed of and what entities can support the retailers’ claims.
Companies that carry certifications recognize the importance of consumer health issues. Many times, these certifications are all a consumer can really depend on to be sure they're buying a safe product. And yes, certifications can seem confusing, but it's important to understand what they mean. Below, Latex Mattress Factory has offered a brief overview on our certifications.
About Oeko-Tex Certifications
Products that are granted use of the Oeko-Tex label adhere to guidelines governing dangerous and harmful chemicals, they're also free of any banned or controlled substances, or any substances thought to be harmful or currently being considered for banning. For instance, Oeko-Tex tests for any illegal substances such as carcinogenic colorants. They also test parameters for safeguarding health, such as skin-contact and mouth contact PH values, and harmful emission tests.
Every year, Oeko-Tex certifications are renewed, based on a yearly audit. This annual audit ensures that the latex manufacturer is held to the highest standards available.
Oeko-Tex certifies all of our Latex Green natural latex. Latex Green is used exclusively in our latex mattresses, latex toppers, and latex cores.
