Question from Summer
This mattress protector is made from a GOTS certified organic cover, which is great. The fill is organic cotton but it is not certified. It is treated with an anti-microbial that is permitted by OEKO-TEX for their Standard 100 certification. OEKO-TEX does permit a number of different fire retardants and anti-microbial that they have determined are non-toxic. I would need to know more about what anti-microbial is used. But, I believe there are safer alternatives.
The reason I so strongly recommend Naturepedic is because their entire facility is GOTS certified and GOTS has the most stringent standard. Their mattress cover is 100% GOTS certified cotton. It is a waterproof pad so it does have a polyurethane barrier. The polyurethane is GOTS certified which ensures that no harmful additives are added. In its pure form, polyurethane is non-toxic. This is a great option if you need a dust-mite barrier.
