Fire Retardant Chemicals in Mattresses and Other Furniture

One of the reasons people choose to invest in our products is because they not contain any fire retardant chemicals.


One of the many reasons that people choose to invest in our products is because our products do not contain any fire retardant chemicals. Our mattresses are able to comply with federal flammability regulations through the use of organic wool, instead of fire retardant chemicals.

Between 1970 and 2004, the amount of flame-retardants in the bloodstreams of adults doubled every two to five years. There is a lot of speculation about fire retardant chemicals, and whether they do more harm than good. An important factor to keep in mind is that scientists at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found that flame-retardants in household furniture aren’t as effective as they seem, and that some of them can actually be dangerous. They aren’t effective because the parts of the furniture exposed to the chemicals aren’t necessarily the parts that catch on fire first. Clearly, the low effectiveness of these chemicals is not worth the high dangers.

The article below, published by The Chicago Tribune in 2012, is a very interesting and enlightening read which goes more in depth on this topic. We highly recommend taking a look at it if you’re interested in learning more about fire retardant chemicals.,0,1627036.story
