These organic mattresses are also super fire-resistant

News

Since 2007, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has made sure that mattresses have flame-retardant materials. That should give everybody peace of mind. But there’s a catch.

Not all flame retardant options are equal. Some manufacturers opt for cheaper, more readily available chemicals and materials to pass flammability tests. Fiberglass, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), boric acid, and melamine are all materials you should avoid due to possible health risks.

Instead, look for health-friendlier alternatives such as natural latex or wool. The best organic mattresses contain one or more layers of wool for optimum flame resistance — without any unwanted chemicals or materials. Find the best fireproof mattresses made with safe, organic materials below.
