What is CertiPur-US®
You’ve seen the term CertiPUR-US® used throughout the SomosBeds website, but what exactly does it mean? In short, buying a mattress with the CertiPUR-US® seal means you’re getting a mattress free of toxic chemicals that could otherwise make you sick.
CertiPUR-US® is a certification program administered by a not-for-profit organization. This certification program is no joke. To ensure the foam inside of your mattress meets the CertiPUR-US® standard, the mattress foam is tested twice in the same year, then once a year after that. The mattress foam is tested for content, emissions, and durability.
What Makes Up CertiPUR-US® Foam?
While comfort and cost are the two biggest thoughts a person has before buying a new mattress, it’s also good to know exactly what makes up your mattress. After all, this is going to be something you lie down on every night for the better part of a decade. Wouldn't you want to know that you're not breathing in harmful chemicals and unknown toxins?
CertiPUR-US® certified foam is made without: dangerous flame retardants; mercury, lead, and other heavy metals; formaldehyde; and phthalates – which can be harmful to children.
Not only can a mattress be harmful to your health, it can also damage the environment.
CertiPUR-US® certified foam is made without ozone depleters. This means in order to get CertiPUR-US® certified, the foam cannot contain chlorofluorocarbons – or CFCs – that have been shown to deplete the ozone layer. In this way, a CertiPUR-US® foam mattress protects you and the environment.
