This rigorous certification process ensures you’re sleeping on a bed that's better for you and our environment.
What does CertiPUR-US® certified mean?
CertiPUR-US® is a certification program for flexible polyurethane foam (the type of foam that is widely used in mattresses and upholstered furniture). The program got its start in 2008 when US foam producers became concerned that chemicals identified as harmful to human health were being used in imported foams. This rigorous certification process was developed to provide consumers with a level of transparency about what goes into their foam products.
All certified foams are tested by independent, accredited laboratories and contain:
- No ozone depleters
- No PBDE or “tris” flame retardants
- No lead, mercury, or other heavy metals
- No formaldehyde
- No phthalates
- Low VOC emissions
But how are foams free of these compounds actually better for us?
