The Best Non-Toxic Mattresses On The Market

A non toxic mattress sounds great — but what does it really mean? We’ll explain the importance of a healthy mattress, why they’re not all built the same, and what you should look for when you’re ready to make a purchase.

What is a Non Toxic Mattress?

Most of us weren’t aware of the harmful chemicals that lurked in our childhood mattresses. Now that we’re older and more research has been done, we’re able to know which toxic components to avoid in our beds as well as our children’s beds. Chemicals in traditional mattresses have been linked to fertility issues, allergies, and other health problems, so it’s important to buy a mattress that doesn’t contain these harmful substances.  

A non-toxic mattress is built without:

Flame Retardants

If you have a mattress that was made prior to 2004, it’s best to just throw it out. Back then, many manufacturers used Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) to prevent the bed from catching on fire, but it was found to cause thyroid problems, hearing deficits, birth defects and cancer. After PBDEs were banned, the flame retardants that replaced them weren’t much better, as they were associated with reduced IQ scores, behavioral problems, hormone disruptions and breast cancer.

Polyurethane Foam

This petroleum-based material used in many mattresses emits volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can cause respiratory issues and skin problems.


Formaldehyde was once used to make the adhesive that hold mattresses together. Now we know it can aggravate asthma and allergies and cause cancers of the throat, lung and nose.

Cotton Pesticides

The push to buy foods grown without pesticides shows the danger of ingesting such chemicals, and it’s just as important not to breathe them in while you sleep. Cotton used in the build or cover of mattresses should be pesticide-free in order to avoid a risk of cancer and nervous-system disorders.
