Do you use toxic flame retardants?

No, we do not. 

Ensuring that your mattress is non-flammable is a requirement in the United States, but the fire retardants used by most mattress manufacturers are not entirely “safe.” Most of the chemicals used are known to cause organ toxicity, hair loss and other neurological damage. 

So why do some companies continue to use them? Because they’re inexpensive. 

The Avocado Green Mattress is different. It uses only natural materials, such as pure 100% GOTS organic certified and STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® wool as a natural fire barrier. Because an Avocado Vegan Mattress does not use wool, it has hydrated-silica sand (which is basically crushed quartz and opal gemstones). These natural materials char and self-extinguish without the use of toxic chemicals and meet and exceed all US standards for flammability standards and safety.
