GOTS Certified Mattress

GOTS Certified Mattress

GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard, and it is the leading processing standard in the world for organic fibers and textiles. GOTS Certified Mattress includes social and ecological criteria, which is backed by the entire textile supply chain’s independent certification. Setting standards that are globally recognized, and ensuring the organic status, is the main mission of GOTS. This ranges from harvesting raw materials through socially and environmentally responsible manufacturing to providing labels that ensure credibility to the consumers.

GOTS monitors compliance through a dual system with relevant criteria that consists of residue testing and on-site auditing. With the onset of the labeling and logo system, the GOTS is visible on natural textile shop shelves and by brand dealers and large-scale retailers as well. This is the turning point in strong acknowledgment and consumer recognition of GOTS’s reliable concept of quality assurance.

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

As a GOTS mattress provider, Natural Mattress Matters provides this assurance to its customers by meeting the strict GOTS criteria, maintaining chain of custody records for all organic material purchases, and undergoing regular inspections and audit reviews.

How to buy GOTS Certified Mattress

There is a large selection of online companies who are claiming to be certified, including some well-known brands and manufacturers. The cost of a mattress depends on its quality which in turn is dependent on the materials it is made of. Quality materials are costly but will guarantee good health, safety, and a relaxing sleep. Low-quality materials, on the other hand, are cheap but can be toxic, uncomfortable and harmful to your health.

Bedding companies do not always state the exact materials that make up the beds. Don’t be afraid to ask one or two questions before you decide on what to purchase. Better yet, do business with a reputable company.

Shop with NMM for a peace of mind. We only use the most durable materials available with the right functionality for your proper alignment and posture. This allows your body to heal during sleep and with our healthy materials, you will sleep in a clean environment that your bedroom deserves.

The following tips will help:

  • Search for qualified retailers in the natural bedding industry
  • Certifications are costly, so cheap beds will most likely not be certified
  • Buy with a third-party certifications 
  • Check for legitimate labels

Ask questions if you are in doubt

Oeko Tex Certified Mattress

Oeko Tex Certified Mattresses

The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide recognized certification, independent testing, and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used. At NNM, we carry oeko tex certified mattress and bedding.

Oeko Tex Mattress Standard 100

The 100 standard is currently the highest certification you can attain as far as testing for off-gassing and any other toxic chemicals associated. Here are a few examples of articles that can be certified: raw and dyed/finished yarns, woven and knitted fabrics, accessories, such as buttons, zip fasteners, sewing threads or labels, ready-made articles of various types (garments of all types, domestic and household textiles, bed linen, terry products and much more). Our manufacturing partners have the highest certifications in the industry.

For natural latex (sap from a tree) to be certified as organic, as with all organic products, it means that no toxic chemicals or pesticides are used in growing the natural rubber trees at the time of collecting the milky liquid, and up to the final production of the latex. For most organic /natural mattress manufacturers and consumers, the primary concern is that no synthetics are used in the production of the latex. This type of latex is all natural and is certified as 100% natural rubber latex. On the other hand, we have manufacturers, online companies, and store retailers selling cheap latex with the claim that it is organic. At NNM, our Oeko Tex Certified Mattress is free from any synthetic mixes. 

Rest assured that current certifications are available when purchasing an all natural latex mattress from us. The Oeko-Tex Mattress certification will clearly state if the latex tested is 100% natural rubber latex, without synthetic content. In addition, we carry the certification also on our innerspring natural mattresses

The 100% natural latex certification is very important, as high quality blended latex will also pass the Standard 100. We do not carry any blended latex since we are of the opinion that it is not as durable and not as pure. That is why it’s important to show at trusted companies and retailers.

Oeko-Tex Testing Criteria

The internationally recognized test OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is based on scientifically proven parameters and is revised annually in line with the latest legislation and research.

It includes:

– Substances which are prohibited by law, such as carcinogenic dyestuffs.

– Chemicals and components which are regulated by law, such as formaldehyde, softeners, heavy metals or pentachlorophenol.

– Substances which according to current knowledge are harmful to health but which are not yet regulated or prohibited by law, such as pesticides, allergy-inducing dyestuffs or tin-organic compounds.

– Parameters such as colorfastness and a skin-friendly pH-value, which are precautionary measures to safeguard a consumers’ health.

Clearly, the criteria exceed existing legislation which is why we at Natural Mattress Matters want all our products to have this certification. In addition, the certifications often lead the way regarding legal regulations – such as the exclusion of carcinogenic, stricter regulation for formaldehyde as well as the ban on allergenic dyes.

In addition, all components are tested and certified by the independent Oeko-Tex 100 standard to ensure a clean and chemically safe sleep environment.

Oeko Tex Certification

The precondition for the certification of products in accordance with Standard 100 is that all parts of an article meet the required criteria – in addition to the outer fabric, for example, also the sewing threads, inserts, prints etc., as well as non-textile accessories, such as buttons, zip fasteners, rivets etc.

Additional preconditions are the existence and application of operational quality assurance measures, as well as the legally binding signing of undertakings.
