Chemicals You Won’t Find in Organic Mattresses

Green Dream Beds offers simply designed beds from manufacturers committed to organic sleep solutions, like Savvy Rest® and Naturpedic®. Green Dream Beds are committed to delivering beds free of petrochemicals, fire retardants, anti-microbial or anti-fungal agents, glues, resins or toxic outgassing.

When looking at your choices for mattresses, you will want to ask about what chemicals and other substances go into the mattress with which you’ll be spending so much time in close contact!  A number of sources detail several synthetic mattress materials which you may find in your mattresses.

Your mattress may include substances like glues and adhesives, boric acid, formaldehyde, styrene, toluene di-isocyante (TDI), antimony, butadiene, PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers and other materials. We recommend an authoritative website, such as the EPA ( to read about the potential harmful effects of each of these substances.

Green Dream Beds chooses natural substances from quality manufacturers. Products like wood and steel used in the manufacture of the infrastructure of mattresses contain none of the materials detailed above. Other materials used in mattress covering and topping, like cotton, wool, latex and food-grade polyethylene minimize or eliminate the possibility of chemical interactions with your body.

It’s up to you when doing your research about your next choice in mattress, to determine whether you want to use synthetic or natural materials. Do your own research and ask good questions of the people you’re working with to determine whether you’re making the best possible choice for your sleep-health, and that of your family.
